Twitter goes wild as England’s Sam Curran becomes the most expensive player ever bought in IPL

At the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) Auction in Kochi on Friday, all-rounder in England Sam Curran was bought by Punjab Kings (PBKS) for a record fee of Rs 18.5 crore, making him the most expensive player in IPL history, surpassing former South Africa international Chris Morris.

During the bidding process both Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) initially expressed interest in acquiring the services of Curran, which had a base price of Rs 2 crore. When the price rose to Rs 7 crore, Rajasthan Royals (RR) also participated in the bidding. RCB eventually dropped out, leaving MI and RR in a competitive bidding war. Chennai Super Kings (CSK)PBS and Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) also joined the bidding before Punjab finally bought Curran. The southpaw won the Player of the Tournament award at Australia’s T20 World Cup last month, where he took 13 wickets and earned the Player of the Match award for his performance in the final against Pakistan.

Very happy to have him on board, he has great skills with both bat and ball. We had two or three all-rounders in mind, Sam was lucky to come up first.” the head coach of Punjab Trevor Bailiss was quoted as saying to the broadcasters.
