10. Rashid Khan – 15 Crores (2022)

Rashid’s variations with the ball are unrivalled. He hasn’t been cracked by any of the batters since his debut. This is particularly impressive given that most mystery spinners get cracked after a significant quantity of cricket. He has already taken over 400 wickets in T20s and is on the verge of shattering a slew of records.

9. Hardik Pandya – 15 Crores (2022)

Hardik was selected in the draft by the Ahmedabad franchise for a whopping 15 crore. In addition, he has been named the franchise’s captain. His main goal would be to redeem himself following a string of dismal performances. As a result, he’ll be a player to keep an eye on in 2022.

8. Pat Cummins – 15.50 Crores (2020)

During both of his years with KKR, he put in respectable performances. In terms of limited overs, his numbers are fairly respectable. His economy rate is 8.23, and he’s a competent batter in the bottom of the order. In the year 2021, he had an incredible strike rate of 166.07, indicating his ability to bat well at the end.

7. Yuvraj Singh – 16 Crores (2015)

His most successful stint was with the Sunrisers when he was able to win one IPL trophy. He eventually retired from all forms of cricket in 2019 after only four matches with the Mumbai Indians. He was one of India’s greatest all-rounders in the game’s history.

6. Ravindra Jadeja – 16 Crores (2022)

His best performance in the IPL 2021 came against Harshal Patel when he scored 37 runs in a single over. His finishing skills have become more prominent, and, logically, a player of his caliber will be difficult to replace. As a result, Jadeja became one of the highest-paid players in IPL history.

5. Rishabh Pant – 16 Crores (2022)

His captaincy has been fairly decent last year where he led the Capitals to a playoffs finish. He has been instrumental in Delhi’s redemption with his attacking brand of play. Because of his contributions, Delhi has qualified for the playoffs three times in a row. Therefore, he is an asset to the franchise because of his multifaceted abilities.

4. Rohit Sharma – 16 Crores (2022)

On the batting front, he has been an excellent batter up the order. His consistent contributions with the bat laid the base for the team to capitalise. He is the third-highest run-getter in the league with 5611 runs. Such a player is a luxury to have because of his multifaceted skills.

3. Chris Morris – 16.25 Crores (2021)

He had the ability to bowl at the death and hit some lusty blows at the end with the bat. His stats speak volumes about his abilities. With an impressive economy of 8.00 and a staggering batting strike rate of 155.27 made him an excellent commodity to have. Therefore, his price tag kept increasing despite his age because of the dearth of fast bowling all-rounders.

2. Virat Kohli – 17 Crores (2018)

He has led RCB for over eight years but never has been able to win the trophy. Nevertheless, his contributions has been instrumental in the growth of Indian Cricket and his match-winning abilities are second to none. Therefore, it is understandable that RCB paid a huge amount of sum to retain him because of his brand value.

1. KL Rahul – 17 Crores (2022)

His record has been prolific in the IPL. He has amassed 3273 runs at a mind-blowing strike rate of 136.37. Added to his batting, he possesses quality wicketkeeping skills. In addition, he is the captain of the franchise and would look to start a new legacy for the team.
