Player Bidding

Cricket BallPlayer Bidding is a term that refers to the process of making bids on Indian premier League players at auction.

The first auction of players was held in February 2008, and the event made headlines because of the size of the winning bid for one-day cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The owners of Chennai Super Kings paid $1.5 million for Mahendra, beating his $400,000 base price by $900,000 and making him the most expensive player in the tournament.

Whilst Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the most expensive player bought at the auction, there were several other winning bids that beat that $1 million mark, as follows:

  • Andrew Symonds was bought by Hyderabad for $1,350,000
  • Yuvraj Singh was bought by Mohali for $1,063,750
  • Rahul Dravid was bought by the Bangalore Royal Challengers for $1,035,000

With the Indian Premier League certain to become one of the most popular cricket competitions in the world, player bidding will undoubtedly lead to some even higher purchases in the future.
