The Indian players are the heart of the WPL but the overseas stars who will take part in the league will make it the best and the league to take part in. The overseas players that will be a part of the WPL are some of the best that the game has to offer and they will add the balance with the Indian players. This is also such a great opportunity for the young Indian players to learn from the best in the world.

There were some names in this list that very few predicted and the prices that they went for are far more than anyone had guessed and this is the beauty of the auction. 

So, let’s look at the Top 5 Overseas Buys at Women’s Premier League Auction.


1) Ashleigh Gardner – 3.20 Crores

She was the joint most expensive overseas player in this auction and she was bought by the Gujarat Giants for a whopping 3.20 crores. She is considered one of the best all round cricketers in the world right now and she is one of the many reasons that Australia are such a dominant team in women’s cricket. Ash Gardener as she is fondly called deserves this for her years of service and she will contribute with her bat and ball.

2) Natalie Sciver Brunt – 3.20 Crores

The England vice captain is also the joint highest Overseas player in the WPL. She is just like Ash Gardener as she is one of the main players for England as she can hit big sixes with the bat as well as take wickets at regular intervals. Natalie Sciver Brunt is a terrific buy for the Mumbai Indians and she will be a great support system to Harmanpreet Kaur who will be the captain of the team.

3) Beth Mooney – 2 Crores

One of the best batters in the world for years and the opening batter for Australia Beth Mooney is the third highest Overseas player with Gujarat Giants buying her for 2 Crores and this is a but if a steal as she is so good that she can change the complexion of the match on her own and under Rachael Haynes she will be a captaincy contender as well.

4) Sophie Ecclestone – 1.80 Crores

The number 1 bowler in the world in both the ODI and the T20I format Sophie Ecclestone is the 4th highest player in the league and the UP Warriorz have bought her for 1.80 crores and this is a good one for them and it will allow Sophie Ecclestone to thrive on the global stage and Excel like she always does. The spinning tracks that the teams will play on will benefit her as well.

5) Ellyse Perry – 1.70 Crores

The 5th highest Overseas player in the WPL is perhaps the greatest player of all time and most certainly the biggest oversea star in the league. Ellyse Perry needs no introduction to Indian fans as she was one of the first overseas players to be known to the Indian public. Royal Challengers Bangalore have picked her at the auction and they have a star studded team and are real contenders for the title. She will contribute with both bat and ball.
