The IPL 2021 auction has finally ended and many teams have spent a lot of money on some new players. Overseas fast bowlers were the center of attraction, as they have earned a lot of money in this auction. In the auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore, which had a purse of 30+ CR, spent more than 10CR + on two players.
For years RCB has been a franchise that likes to spend big money on big players. Not only IPL 2021 but in the last season also, this team has looted money on players. But today in this article we will know about 5 such players of RCB, who have won the largest contract in the auction.
5) Dinesh Karthik – 10.5 Crore (2014)
Dinesh Karthik, who is in Kolkata Knight Riders, has been a part of most of the IPL teams throughout his career. He was part of Delhi Capitals for 12.5 crores in IPL 2014 and released after a year. The next year he was once again in demand as Royal Challengers Bangalore bought him for 10.5 crores.
Karthik is one of those players who has received a lot of money through auctions. RCB bought him for 10.5 crores, but he had a very bad IPL season as he scored only 141 runs in the entire season. RCB released him after that season, and he moved to a new team.
4) Tymal Mills – 12 Crore (2017)
There will be some fans of RCB who would like to forget this name because Timel Mills could not do anything special in the IPL. Mills was part of the India-England T20I series just before the 2017 auction and, as a result, there was a lot of discussion about him in the auction.
The left-arm fast bowler of England was in great demand as the price was constantly increasing. In the end, RCB bought it for 12 crores, but the deal did not work for the team. He took five wickets in five matches and was released after that season. Mills never got an IPL deal after that season.
3) Yuvraj Singh – 14 Crore (2014)
Yuvraj Singh has earned a lot of money from the mini-auction. Because Indian all-rounders have always been in demand in these auctions. In the 2014 IPL auction, Yuvraj Singh was the star player and most of the team was looking to get him. Royal Challengers Bangalore bought them for 14 crores.
They had a good season but still, RCB released them so that they could buy them at a cheaper price. But his plan did not work because Delhi Capitals bought him for 16 crores in the 2015 IPL auction.
2) Glenn Maxwell – 14.25 Crore (2021)
Like Yuvraj Singh, the mini-auction has worked well for Glenn Maxwell. Glenn Maxwell was bought for 10.75 crores in the last auction, and he had one of his worst seasons as he failed to hit a six in the entire season. Even after such a bad season, the explosive batsman was in high demand at the auction.
There was a bidding war between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2021, but RCB eventually won it as they signed Glenn Maxwell for a deal of 14.25 crore. He is one of the most expensive buyers in the history of IPL.
1) Kyle Jamieson – 15 Crore (2021)
Royal Challengers Bangalore did not stop after buying Glenn Maxwell for such a big price. Kiwi fast bowler Kyle Jamieson, who had dreamed of his Test career, but a tough fight between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the auction to include this player in his team.
