South African all-rounder Chris Morris became the most expensive overseas player in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL), going for a salary of Rs 16.25 crores to Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2021 auctions. While RCB and Mumbai Indians began the bid, it got down to Royals and Punjab Kings before he finally went back to RR.

Former India leg-spinner Piyush Chawla also managed to find a new franchise with Mumbai Indians picking him up for Rs 2.4 crore, ahead of DC.
England all-rounder Moeen Ali also drew a lot of interest as he was picked by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for Rs 7 crore while former Australian skipper Steve Smith was bought at a bargain of Rs 2.2 crore by Delhi Capitals.
