IPL Auction 2017: Most expensive players
- Yuvraj Singh remains the most expensive player in IPL history at 16 crore.

Fans across the country were glued to the television speculating and urging their team to go for their favourite stars. MS Dhoni was one of the most sought after stars in the first year, and every team tried to sign India’s captain at that stage, but the CSK eventually prevailed.

In 2017, these stars saw some cutthroat action as team owners desperately looked to secure their services.#5 Pat Cummins – Delhi Daredevils – 4.5 crore (Base price – 2 crore)Pat Cummins joins a superb Delhi bowling unitDelhi Daredevils were in the mood to do some serious business in this year’s auction and did not mess around right from the beginning.
