India hosts the Indian Premier League or IPL, a well-known Twenty20 cricket annual tournament. Fans worldwide enjoy the match because of its intense competition, exciting games, and top-notch players. The Orange Cap, which is given to the player with the most runs during the competition, is one of the most exciting features of the IPL.
Exciting prospects for IPL: Highlights from the auction
Before each season begins, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) holds an auction where teams can finalize their rosters. Like previous auctions, the 2023 one featured several record-breaking purchases. Sam Curran, an all-rounder for England, was acquired by Punjab Kings for a whopping INR 18.50 crore, making him the most expensive player in the auction.
On the other side, Cameron Green became the second most expensive player in IPL auction history as Mumbai Indians broke their previous record by paying INR 17.50 crores for him.
