Chennai: The auction of players for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, the world’s largest league cricket league, will start in Chennai sometime from now. The eight IPL franchises will bid to fill 61 locations. Yuvraj Singh is by far the most expensive selling player in the history of IPL. It will be interesting to see if this time Yuvraj Singh’s record is broken. In 2015, Yuvraj Singh was bought by Yuvraj Singh for Rs 16 crore. But do you know that some star players get more salary than this without going to the auction.
Talking about the most expensive player in IPL history, he is Virat Kohli, who was retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 17 crore. However, Kohli was no longer part of the auction. He remains with the same franchise from the beginning. Virat Kohli, who does not win a single IPL title as captain, gets the most money in the league. Virat gives the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise Rs 17 crore for one season of the IPL.
