IPL 2024 Auction: Who Will Go For Gold?

IPL 2024 Auction: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most popular cricket tournaments in the world, and its upcoming auction is always a highly anticipated event. This year’s auction, scheduled for December 19th in Dubai, promises to be no different, with a total of 333 players shortlisted, including some of the biggest names in the sport.

IPL 2024 Auction: Who Will Be the Most Expensive Players?

One of the most interesting aspects of the auction is the price tag that players will fetch. With a total purse of 262.50 crore available for the teams, there is sure to be some fierce bidding for the top players.

Key questions hang in the air:

  • Who will be the hottest property? Will experienced names like David Warner or Rashid Khan command the highest bids, or will rising stars like Shaik Rasheed or Mukesh Kumar steal the show?
  • Which franchises will make the boldest moves? Will the defending champions Mumbai Indians shore up their batting, or will the likes of Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings revamp their core?
  • Can uncapped Indian players continue their dominance? The likes of Shahrukh Khan and Anuj Rawat impressed last year, can we expect another wave of young Indian talent to shine?

Top Contenders for the Highest Price

The highest reserve price for the auction is 2 crore, and there are 23 players listed in this category. These include some of the biggest stars of international cricket, such as Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Steve Smith, and Rashid Khan.
