A number of New Zealand players have been bought in the latest Indian Premier League cricket auction.

Black Caps all-rounder Kyle Jamieson was the main highlight. He has been bought by the Royal Challengers Bangalore who paid $2.86 million for the Aucklander.

It’s the second highest amount paid for a player at this year’s auction. South African all-rounder Chris Morris became the most expensive player in IPL history, bought by Rajasthan Royals for $3.1m.

Jamieson, who has never played in India, is now the fourth most expensive buy in IPL history.

Other New Zealanders included fast bowler Adam Milne, who went for $610,000 and Jimmy Neesham, who was picked up for $95,500.

There were eight New Zealanders in the IPL this season. Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson, fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, spinner come all-rounder Mitchell Santner and wicketkeeper/batsman Tim Seifert were also retained.
