Pat Cummins becomes most expensive signing in IPL history as Delhi Capitals sign Harry Brook

England batter Harry Brook has been signed by the Delhi Capitals and Australia captain Pat Cummins is the new most expensive signing after the mini-auction for the 2024 tournament.

The 24-year-old began his first IPL season with Sunrisers Hyderabad but will now make the switch to Delhi and was the second player to be auctioned behind West Indies batter Rovman Powell.

Last year, Sunrisers paid over £1.3million for Brook but he scored just 190 runs in 11 matches in the 2023 season.

Travis Head, whose brilliant 137 helped Australia win the 50-over World Cup final against host nation India last month, was signed by Sunrisers for 6.8 crore Indian rupees (around £645,000) in the mini auction.

The 29-year-old left-handed batter returns to the IPL for the first time since 2017, when he played 10 matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Australia captain Pat Cummins became the most expensive player in IPL history after being signed by Sunrisers for 20.5 crore Indian rupees (around £1.945m).

That eclipsed the record of 18.5 crore Indian rupees that Punjab Kings paid for England all-rounder Sam Curran in last year’s auction.

Cummins joins international team-mate Head at Hyderabad, the 30-year-old fast bowler having played 42 matches in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals.
