Here are the top 5 highest-paid players in IPL 2023 :

5. Sam Curran :

With Punjab Kings’ purchase of the star Englishman for a staggering INR 18.5 crore, Sam Curran became the most expensive purchase in an IPL auction. Since Curran joined the lucrative T20 league offered by the Punjab franchise, no player has ever been acquired for a price.

The English all-rounder was named Player of the Tournament after a stellar performance at the T20 World Cup 2022, which just wrapped up. As a result, it came as no surprise that numerous franchises were eager to acquire the player.

4. Cameron Greenย :

Cameron Green of Australia followed the trend of igniting a bidding war when the Delhi Capitals and the Mumbai Indians, five-time winners of the Indian Premier League, engaged in competition for his services. When Mumbai seemed determined to acquire the player ahead of the new season, which they did to their right, things quickly got worse. Mumbai purchased Green for a record-breaking INR 17.50 crore.

3. Ben Stokesย :

Ben Stokes, a fellow Sam Curran, attracted interest from a number of franchises after the star all-rounder helped England win the T20 World Cup earlier this year in Australia. RCB, RR, and LSG began the initial rounds of raising the stakes with a total of 2 crores before Chennai Super Kings joined the fray and ultimately paid INR 16.25 crore for Stokes.

2. Nicholas Pooran :

Lucknow Super Giants paid INR 16 crore for Nicholas Pooran’s services, making him the fourth most expensive franchise pick in this auction. SRH released the wicketkeeper-batsman after purchasing him in the previous edition’s mega auction for INR 10.75 crore.

1. Harry Brook :

The first significant acquisition of the 2023 auction was Harry Brook, which was purchased by Sunrisers Hyderabad for a staggering INR 13.25 crore. In the recently concluded Test series in Pakistan, Brook was the top run-getter with three consecutive centuries.

He has performed admirably for the national team in all of his appearances. In the bidding arena, he was selected fifth ahead of the upcoming season.
