2. Mukesh Kumar
Mukesh Kumar has been a bankable name in the Indian domestic circuit. The 29-year-old has picked up 123 wickets in 33 first-class matches at an average of 21.49. Also, he has fared well in the shortest format, bagging 25 scalps in 23 matches at an economy of 7.20.
Mukesh was quite outstanding in the Ranji Trophy 2021-22 and took 20 wickets for Bengal in five matches. The ace pacer was also amongst the wickets in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022, picking up nine scalps in six games at an economy of 4.91.
Mukesh is a genuine wicket-taker and has proved his mettle in the domestic arena time and time again. Therefore, when the Bengal seamer went under the hammer, franchises such as Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, and Chennai Super Kings raised their paddle to sign him. In the end, DC managed to pick him at a whooping sum of INR 5.5 crore.
