In the WPL Auction of 2024, Kashvee Gautam, the versatile Indian player, secures the title of the priciest uncapped player.

In the 2024 WPL Auction, Kashvee Gautam, India’s versatile all-rounder, emerged as the costliest uncapped player. The bidding war unfolded among Gujarat Giants, RCB, and UP Warriorz, with Gujarat Giants ultimately securing her for ₹2 crore. Notably, Annabel Sutherland from Australia claimed the title of the most expensive foreign player in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 auctions. Delhi Capitals successfully bid ₹2 crore for Sutherland, triumphing over Gujarat Titans, who had more spots to fill.

The WPL Auction 2024 witnessed intense bidding from five teams: Gujarat Titans, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals, and UP Warriorz in the women’s cricket league. Indian batter Vrinda Dinesh garnered significant interest and was eventually acquired by UP Warriorz for ₹1.3 crore. Gujarat Titans, with numerous slots to fill, secured another high-value player, Phoebe Litchfield, for ₹1 crore.

The South African pacer, Shabnim Ismail, became a focal point of competition between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians. In the end, the defending champions, Mumbai Indians, secured her services for ₹1.2 crore.

Kashvee Gautam’s journey is marked by a resilient comeback. Despite going unsold in the previous WPL auctions, the right-arm seamer didn’t let the setback affect her. She diligently worked on her pace and sought continuous feedback from team scouts. Demonstrating consistency in domestic cricket, Gautam showcased her skills in the Women’s T20 trophy this year, securing 12 wickets in seven matches with an impressive economy rate of 4.14.
