Pooja Vastrakar  Mumbai Indians 

1.9 crore 

Jersey number 18 goes to the RCB, again!

The 26-year-old is already the vice-captain and is the best bit of the Indian side in international cricket. She is most likely to captain the RCB with the Aussie veteran Elyse Perry, India’s Richa Ghosh, Renuka Singh and Kiwi skipper Sophie Devine by her side.

Besides, Deepti Sharma clinched the second spot in the list of the ‘most expensive Indian players in the Women’s Premier League’. Sharma is an actually a ‘3D player’ that every franchise craves for. The spin bowling all-rounder can bowl, of course and can bat, and can lead too.

Moreover, the others in the list are a few of the team India’s future superstars, including Verma, Rodrigues and Ghosh. Vastrakar, on the other hand, bowls fast and can provide explosive, crucial batting cameos. The Mumbai Indians got her for INR 1.9 crore; seems like they’ve done a good homework!

The event was already being hyped and seemed to be worth it. There is a maximum of 90 slots to be filled within the five teams viz. Gujarat Giants, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals and UP Warriorz.

Each team can have six overseas signings including one from an associate nation. The teams are allowed to field five overseas players in the starting XI and one of them has to be from an associate nation. The purse for auction was given 12 crore INR and each franchise is allowed to buy a minimum of 15 players and a maximum of 18. The tournament will kick off on March 4 and the final will be played on March 26, 2023.
