In IPL 2023 Auctions, many records were broken. While Ben Stokes matched the earlier record for the costliest player at the auctions, Sam Curran and Cameron Green broke it. Curran earned a bid worth INR 18.5 Cr while Green fetched a bid of INR 17.5 Cr. It needs to be noted that both these players are not even established at the IPL level. Hence, it left many wondering what would be the price if some top names enter the auction. On that note, here, we take a look at three players who might fetch more than INR 20 Cr at IPL 2024 auctions if they leave the current IPL team.
1) Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav is arguably the best batter in the T20 format right now. He has done it under various conditions against different types of attacks. SKY ticks almost every box needed to be a modern T20 batter.
Therefore, if he ever left Mumbai Indians, based on his current form, he would be in top demand at the auctions. SKY has the ability to win a few games on his own in an IPL season. He also entertains the fans well and these factors make him an attractive acquisition.
2) Jasprit Bumrah
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the players who might fetch more than INR 20 Cr at IPL 2024 auctions if they leave the current IPL team. We have seen bowlers breaking auction records every year. Bumrah is India’s best bowler and will surely cross the INR 20 Cr mark.
Bumrah is also someone who can lead a squad in the future. This further makes him a top hire for any franchise in the competition.
Back to where it all started! Looking forward to it 🦁 https://t.co/1lpsK8fX4VAdvertisement

3) Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan is arguably the most complete T20 spinner at the moment. He is a minimum-guarantee bowler who offers economical bowling if he does not pick wickets.
In recent months, Rashid has also developed power-hitting skills. Add to this, he is a leadership material. Rashid is still young despite having achieved so much. Therefore, he would be a terrific signing for any squad.
