Among the foreign players, it was Jang Kun Lee who had the highest payday after netting a cool Rs 80.3 lakh sum, thanks to the dynamic pricing system.

In this system, the contracted amount for the retained player of the existing eight franchises and the priority pick of the four new ones was contingent on the overall auction activity of the teams. It was either the base price of the category to which the player belonged or 110% of the highest amount paid for a single player from the same or lower category, which ever is higher.
