KKR CEO Venky Mysore opens up on record signing of Mitchell Starc in IPL 2024 Auction

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) CEO Venky Mysore opened up on their record signing of Australian pacer Mitchell Starc in IPL 2024 Auction on Tuesday.

After a successful deal he said, 'if you sort of look at it from the set of lenses of a price you pay for a player. I know, it seems like, wow! 24.7 (crore rupees). I was telling someone that the salary cap of a team when IPL started in 2008 was 20 crores. The entire salary cap. So things have changed, right?'

'But, you know, I think our view is when the auction is over, all the ten teams are going to walk out of the auction having spent 100 crores and each team decides to slice it differently. So what you paid to somebody up, down and what not, is a matter of perspective, ultimately we're all spending the same amount of money.'

Records tumbled in Dubai when Pat Cummins (bought by SRH for ₹20.5 crore) became the most expensive buy in IPL history but for a short while. KKR soon bought Starck for a whopping ₹24.75 crore, which is now the costliest pick in IPL history.
