Inspired by the huge amounts which the foreign players drew in previous IPL auctions, they (overseas players) have raised their base price for the upcoming season of Indian Premier League.

The first one on the list of players to up his base price is Tymal Mills, who bagged a deal worth Rs 12 Crore with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous season. Though he did not have a fruitful season, still, he is expected to bag a big deal, which has seen Mills raising his base price from Rs 50 Lakh to 1 Crore for the upcoming season.

The next name on the list is Windies’ T20I skipper, Carlos Brathwaite. He came into IPL auction 2016 with a base price of Rs 30 Lakhs, but this time, a franchise has to spend at least Rs 1 Crore to gain his services. Brathwaite though went to Rs 4.2 Crores to Delhi Daredevils, but this time, he is not expected to get such a big amount.

India pacer, Mohammed Siraj, – a capped player now – has also raised his base price from Rs 20 Lakhs to 1 Crore. Siraj drew a contract worth Rs. 2.6 Crores with Sunrisers Hyderabad and did well. He also made it to the Indian team riding on his IPL and India A exploits. Being a capped player gave him right to increase his base price, and he inked on Rs 1 Crore, the third highest bracket after Rs 2 Crores and Rs 1.5 Crores.

Surprisingly, Evin Lewis has also upped his base price from Rs 50 Lakhs to Rs 1.50 Crores, despite going unsold in IPL auction last year. Though he had scored well on the international level, but this has less impact on IPL franchises, which has been the case in past.

The name of Michael Klinger in Rs. 1.5 Crores is also a surprise. He continues to play his trade in various T20 leagues but, just like last year, is expected to go unsold this year again.

Players increasing their base price for the upcoming season has come as a big surprise despite many of them not doing justice with the price they got previously.
