Cameron Green was signed by Mumbai Indians for Rs. 17.50 crore, making him the second most expensive player in the IPL.
At the IPL 2023 auction in Kochi on Friday, Mumbai purchased Cameron Green for Rs 17.50 crore, making him the second most expensive player in the league.
In the beginning, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians offered Rs 2 crore in the auction for the Australian talent. In no time, the price soared over Rs. 7 crore.
As the amount exceeded Rs. 10 crore, Delhi Capitals also joined the fray. Even after the 15-crore mark, the Capitals and Indians competed for the player.
Green’s price surpassed numerous records, but Mumbai Indians persisted and eventually acquired the player. We’ve been following Green for two to three years and thought he was just what we needed. We’ve been looking for younger players for a few auctions, and he fits the correct age profile for us,” Akash Ambani said.
On the list of the most costly IPL auction purchases, Green now ranks second. In the same auction, Punjab Kings purchased Sam Curran for 18.50 crore.
