Despite franchises having smaller purses, mini-auctions have produced some of the most expensive buys in the past. At the 2021 auction, South Africa fast bowler Chris Morris became the most expensive player after Royals bought him for INR 16.25 crore. Which was INR 25 lakhs more than Delhi’s winning bid for India allrounder Yuvraj Singh in 2015.
