1. Sunil Narine

He was the second-highest-paid cricketer in the KKR set up last season with a huge amount of Rs. 12.5 crores. But he has been retained only for less than half the amount this time for Rs. 6 crores.

2. Glenn Maxwell

The big show was picked in the auction for Rs. 14.25 crores last season, but now has been retained second by the RCB franchise for a price of Rs 11 crores. He’s always had a big price tag behind his name during the auctions every year.

3. Virat Kohli

Kohli announced his withdrawal from captaincy recently and this might be the reason for his acceptance of salary cut. This decision of him is much appreciable and will allow the team to concentrate and fill the remaining slots with the freedom in the purse.

4. MS Dhoni

Dhoni is the eighth highest run-getter of the tournament and has the pride of featuring in the IPL for the most number of matches (220). The 40-year-old player has reduced the salary by Rs. 3 crores to feature in the upcoming season.
