Australian fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins became the most expensive players in Indian Premier League (IPL) history on Tuesday, with franchises dishing out millions of dollars for their services at the glitzy Twenty20 tournament.

Starc, who last played in the IPL eight years ago, made a smashing comeback when he was snapped up by Kolkata Knight Riders for 247.5 million rupees ($2.98m), setting an all-time IPL auction record.

“We won, Mr Starc!” the franchise posted on X, formerly Twitter.
