Yuzvendra Chahal (R 10 lakh)
He might be diminutive but Yuzvendra Chahal packs a punch with his feisty leg-spinners that have fetched him 20 wickets.
Andre Russell (R 60 lakh)
Had it not been for an injury, Russell could well have ended with more. Still it’s a lot considering he was retained for only R 60 lakh.
Ashok Dinda (R 50 lakh)
MS Dhoni’s struggle with death bowling finally stopped with Ashoke Dinda not only took 11 wickets in nine matches but also had a good economy of 7.5.
KL Rahul (R 1 crore)
He was retained by Hyderabad but was poached by RCB just after the auctions. Rahul came in as opener when Gayle was unavailable and gave the stability the team needed, whether at the top or in the middle with 386 runs.
Sandeep Sharma (R 85 lakh)
One of the few consistent players of Kings XI Punjab, Sandeep could generate speed and also move the ball. Ended with 15 wickets from 14 matches with an economy of 7.32.
