Harry Brook was auctioned for £1.3million after impressing for England

The move has smashed the previous IPL record that was held by Chris Morris’ deal with Rajasthan Royals in 2021.

It is a further reward for the Englishman who starred for his nation during the T20 World Cup win in Australia back in November.

Curran was impressive with the ball for Jos Buttler‘s side as he was named ICC Player of the Tournament.

Curran was joined by current England rising star Harry Brook who landed a £1.3m deal to play for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The team were able to beat off competition from rivals Rajasthan and Royal Challengers Bangalore for his signature.

The deal impressed his Test captain Ben Stokes, who tweeted: “Broooooooooooooky lad”.

Brook was also part of the World Cup-winning side and has been in impressive form for England in all forms of the game.

In T20, the 23-year-old has scored 372 runs with a strike rate of almost 138 in his 20 appearances for England.


Brook also broke a record as he became the most expensive specialist batter ever sold at a mini-auction.

However, former England test captain Joe Root remained unsold at his base price of just over £100,000.
