    Cameron Green

    The tall pace bowling all rounder became the second highest paid player in the history of the IPL when he was sold to the Mumbai Indians for a whooping 17.50 Cr.

    Ben Stokes

    Ben Stokes is not unfamiliar with high bids. He has already secured bids upwards of 10 Cr. The Chennai Super Kings broke the bank for him this year when they paid the huge sum of 16.25 Cr.

    Nicholas Pooran

    The wicket keeper batsman from Trinidad is a veteran in the shortest format of the game. He possesses the rare ability of hitting spin in the middle overs. Therefore, it came as no surprise when the Lucknow Super Giants spent 16 Cr. for his services.

    KL Rahul

    KL Rahul was chosen by the Lucknow Super Giants for an astounding INR 17 crore, making him the most expensive player in the Indian Premier League 2022 player retentions. Prior to this, Rahul played for Punjab Kings for four seasons and collected 590+ runs, making him a very sought-after option before the super auction.

    Rohit Sharma

    Rohit Sharma had led Mumbai Indians to five IPL championships prior to the retentions, thus it was obvious that he would shortly receive a substantial pay hike, which he rightly deserved. For the 2022 season, the Mumbai Indians boosted his salary from INR 15 crore to INR 16 crore.

    Rishabh Pant

    After seeing him captain the club last season, Delhi Capitals decided to spend a sizable sum of money on Rishabh Pant in the hopes that he could lead them to success in the future. When he was re-signed for the 2022 competition, he was asked to captain the team for an outstanding INR 16 crore.

    Ravindra Jadeja

    Amongst the finest all-rounders in the world, Jadeja, was Chennai’s top retainer the previous year. The franchise chose to keep the southpaw for INR 16 crore just a few days before the tournament began, and he was also given the position of captain.

    Ishan Kishan

    Ishan Kishan was expected to be among the most expensive purchases at the mega auction in 2022. He didn’t disappoint anyone, as Mumbai won the offer for the Jharkhand opener at INR 15.25 crore after a battle between numerous teams.

    Virat Kohli

    The star batter from Delhi needs no introduction. He was his franchise’s first choice retention when they paid a whooping 15 crores for his services.
