The IPL 2024 auction is complete with all the teams ready to take on each other to win the most popular T20 franchise league. There have been a lot of records being broken in the auction with a lot of big buys and big releases. As we know teams have done a lot of planning to make a title-winning side in their eyes and it will be a treat to watch these sides compete. There has also been some drama regarding this auction with some surprising buys and surprising snubs. There were also some young players who have gone for high prices as well with teams looking to promote new talent in the tournament.

Out of all the big players in the IPL, there is one player, there is one player who without question is one of the most expensive players in IPL history. He is none other than Virat Kohli, who has given great IPL performances for Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) representing them in all 16 seasons and will still continue in the following seasons as well. Kohli before the 2022 auction was the most paid IPL player of all time and has lived up to that by being the highest run scorer in IPL with over 7000 runs and has had a salary of over 15 cr.

This season however will be something different as Kohli will no longer be the most paid player in the tournament. After this auction, there are some players who will be paid more than the King in the upcoming season. These players going over Kohli’s price range still says a lot about them and their abilities. This takes nothing away from the great man, but to see people beat that humongous price tag is still something special and it will be interesting to see who these players are.

Here are 4 players who will be paid more Than Virat Kohli in the upcoming IPL 2024 season:

4. Cameron Green(17.5cr)


This Australian all-rounder was one of the top performers for Mumbai Indians last season and has given great performances in international cricket. With his long levers and more than handy pace bowling. He is now traded from the Mumbai Indians(MI) to the Bangalore franchise for 17.5 cr. This is certainly one of the most important players for RCB who can tick all the boxes in the game whether it is batting, bowling or fielding. It will be interesting to see what they have planned for him after paying him more than Kohli who will also be in the same team.


3. Sam Curran(18.5cr)



Moving from one all-rounder to the other and this time from the UK. Sam Curran was the most expensive player last auction and will be playing at the same salary of 18.5 cr after being retained by the Punjab Kings. He will be one of the key players for the franchise going into the season with his ability to strike the big ones and his great variations and swing with the ball in hand is enough to make him an impactful player. Curran might have not had the best season last year, but seeing the franchise put a lot of faith in him with that price tells us a lot about the player.


2. Pat Cummins(20.5cr)


This is one of the most surprising sales in the auction, where everyone was surprised as Australia pacer and skipper Pat Cummins was bought for 20.5 cr by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). There is no question that Cummins is one of the world's best, but he hasn’t really been at his best in T20 cricket. However, in the auction, he is still the first player to go for over 20 cr in the auction and is most likely one of the potential captains for SRH as well seeing how he has been leading his teams in international cricket and winning two major trophies.


1. Mitchell Starc(24.75cr)



Mitchell Starc is now the most expensive player in IPL history going at 24.75 cr to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Beating the previous record set by his skipper in the same auction. Starc will also be returning to the IPL after 8 years. This is one of the biggest moments in IPL history, where he will also be the most-paid player this upcoming season. There is no doubt that Starc is one of the most feared pacers in cricket right now and with the demand for fast bowlers in the auction he has certainly broken the barriers.
