IPL 2021: Chris Morris becomes the most expensive buy in IPL history as RR bought him for INR 16.25 crores

The IPL 2021 will be as per regular schedule, i.e. it will start in March-April like all the previous years. Before the commencement of the tournament, they are having a mini-auction for the 8 franchises.

The IPL 2021 Player Auction is now underway in Chennai from 3 pm IST.

South African all-rounder Chris Morris started a bidding war between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore initially. He has a very low base price of INR 75 lakhs.

Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings entered the bidding very late when the price was already around INR 13 crores.

Finally, he was sold for a whopping INR 16.25 crores to Rajasthan Royals. He will now play under Sanju Samson in IPL 2021.

Chris Morris becomes the most expensive buy in the entire IPL history. Rajasthan Royals’ bid of INR 16.25 crores was the highest. He is followed by Yuvraj Singh, who was bought by Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) for INR 16 crores in 2015. KKR’s Pat Cummins is third on the list with INR 15.5 crores.

Royal Challenger Bangalore’s buy of Glenn Maxwell for INR 14.25 crores is also the fifth most expensive buy in IPL history.

We can clearly see the IPL franchises are not holding up and are spending with free hands for their desired players in the IPL 2021 mini-auction.
