RCB sign Elysse Perry and Sophia Devine in marquee set

Indian vice-captain Smriti Mandhana was the first player to go under the hammer at the inaugural Women’s Premier League 2023 player auction, with Royal Challengers Bangalore spending a jumbo INR 3.4 crores to secure the services of the southpaw.

RCB warded off stiff competition from Mumbai Indians to bag the Indian opener, who was the highest buy in the first marquee player set. The Bengaluru-based franchise further added two stars to their roster – Australia allrounder Ellyse Perry for INR 1.7 crore and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine at INR 50 lakhs base price, which can be termed a steal.
