IPL Auction’s Highest Investments in Uncapped Indian Players

The 2022 auction provided a noteworthy example, featuring the signing of Avesh Khan, then an uncapped player, by Lucknow Super Giants for a staggering ₹10 crores. Avesh Khan still holds the distinction of being the most expensive uncapped signing in the history of the IPL.

In the 2021 auction, Chennai Super Kings secured Karnataka all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham for ₹9.25 crore, positioning him as the second-most expensive uncapped Indian. The same year saw power-hitter Shahrukh Khan and the versatile Rahul Tewatia sharing the joint-third spot on this prestigious list, both fetching ₹9 crores deals with Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans, respectively, echoing Avesh Khan’s groundbreaking feat.

As the upcoming auction approaches, the spotlight is set to shine on players like Shahrukh Khan and Vivrant Sharma. Sportstar revisits the uncapped Indian players who have previously commanded significant paychecks.
