Mumbai Indians retained him for more than ₹15 crores while his national teammate Shreyas Iyer also secured a fat paycheck worth over ₹12 crores from Kolkata Knight Riders. Pacer Deepak Chahar became the second-highest earner in the auction, with Chennai Super Kings acquiring his services for ₹14 crores. At ₹10 crores, India pacer Avesh Khan is now the most expensive uncapped player in the history of the cash-rich league.
