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.
