Pat Cummins Emerges As Most Expensive Player, Australians Dominate IPL 2020 Auction

Australian players attracted some big prices as the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 auction concluded after some intense bidding sessions in Kolkata on Thursday. Fast bowler Pat Cummins emerged as the costliest overseas buy after he went to Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 15.5 crore, while explosive all-rounder Glenn Maxwell joined Kings XI Punjab for Rs 10.75 crore after recently returning to cricket from a short break due to mental health issues. The players get around 75 percent of the auction price, effectively their salary for the season, while the rest goes to their national board.
