IPL 2024: All 10 Teams Expensive Indian Players List

KL Rahul from Lucknow Super Giants, the costliest Indian as we look at the IPL 2024 expensive players list for all 10 teams post the Auction. 

Every year in the Indian Premier League, players from across the world test their destiny as they enter one of the most exciting events in the cricketing fraternity, the IPL Auction. While a Mega Auction is generally conducted every three years, the Mini Auction is conducted every year barring the Mega Auction year. 

Generally, the IPL Mega Auction is where teams retain around 4 players, and hence it is a great platform for the Indian players to get a handsome amount in the Auction. But the same can’t be said for the Mini Auction where overseas players target the demand-supply gap by skipping the Mega Auction, and entering their name directly in the Mini Auction to earn handsome rewards.

While every team spends a lot on overseas players in the Mini Auction, how is the amount spent on Indian players overall? Well, let’s look at the most expensive Indian players in each team for IPL 2024. After all, this is an Indian Premier League, and we want to analyze each team on the basis of how much they spent on Indian players more than the lowest base price.
