Sunrisers Hyderabad decided to beef up its already-strong pace line-up by adding local boy Mohammad Siraj for Rs. 2.6 crore. Siraj, son of an auto driver, in 10 T20s, has 16 wickets at an economy rate of 7.05. Photo: V. V. Subrahmanyam
Possessing a heavyweight batting line-up, Royal Challengers Bangalore looked to bolster its bowling unit, especially with Mitchell Starc opting out of this IPL. This explains it shelling out Rs. 2 crore for Aniket Choudhary. Photo: R. V. Moorthy
