India Cricket News, IPL Auction 2024 Updates

Australia's captain, Pat Cummins, has covered off a victorious year by becoming the most generously compensated player in the history of the Indian Head Association auction - just for partner Mitchell Starc to break the record an hour after the fact.

The Kolkata Knight Riders paid A$4.43m (£2.35m) for the veteran paceman, eclipsing the A$3.67m paid for Cummins by Sunrisers Hyderabad prior in the auction in Dubai on Tuesday night

The offers both outperformed the $3.15m paid for youthful allrounder Cameron Green last year, which set the benchmark for an Australian player.

Cummins will collaborate with World Cup legend Travis Head after the hazardous left-hander was also snapped up by the Sunrisers for $1.22m

Harry Stream pulled in the most elevated bid for an England player, with the batsman endorsed by the Delhi Capitals for around £380,000.

in the wake of sitting out this year's IPL as a result of a stuffed international timetable, Cummins hurled himself back in the auction and was the focal point of an intense bidding war.

IPL franchises wouldn't hesitate to go all-out to get Cummins, who drove Australia to an upset ODI World Cup final triumph over India in Ahmedabad last month.

Cummins last played in the IPL for the Kolkata Knight Riders last year, yet MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings and the Mumbai Indians drove the bidding.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, who highlight Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell on their program, also made a play for Cummins, yet the Sunrisers upped their bid to a record level.

Cummins' payday overshadowed Head's success in earning his way back to the IPL for the first time in quite a while.

Head has recently been important for two IPL franchises - Delhi in 2015 and the Imperial Challengers during 2016 and 2017.

The star player Steve Smith went unsold during the auction yet has a broad history in the IPL and is probably going to ultimately land some place as Australia get ready for the following year's T20 World Cup in the US and the Caribbean.

The Australians Mitch Marsh, David Warner, Matthew Wade, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Green and Maxwell were already retained by their franchises before the auction
