KKR Team IPL 2024: KKR signed Mitchell Starc for a record-breaking fee of INR 24.75 crore, which made him the highest-played cricketer in the history of the tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders head into the auction with 12 slots available having retained 13 of their players from the last season. Four of those slots can be used for overseas players. Their starting budget before the auction was INR 32.7 crore. KKR’s biggest chunk of the budget went for their next signing – Mitchell Starc – a massive ₹24.75 crore – the highest-ever spent on one player in the history of IPL.

Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals fought for the Australian seamer till ₹9.60 crore before Gujarat Titans took the price to record numbers and pulled out after around 20 minutes of to and fro.

KKR’s IPL Auction 2024 was a success with some great buys. The KKR Think Tank managed to build a well-rounded unit with some exceptional battles at the auction table. An intense day out in Dubai culminated with some historical records and high-voltage bidding wars. KKR picked as many as 10 players in the auction and amongst those was the most expensive buy of the auction history – Mitchell Starc as the Knights acquired the Aussie quick for a whopping 24.75 crores.
