Pat Cummins led the way as a host of Australians attracted big money in the Indian Premier League auction on Thursday.
Cummins became the most expensive overseas buy in the league's history after the Kolkata Knight Riders paid a staggering 155 million rupees ($A3.1 million) for the fast bowler in an auction in Kolkata.
The 26-year-old, ranked No.1 in Tests, attracted an intense bidding war between the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Delhi Capitals on Thursday before Kolkata joined in to bag his services for the 2020 edition of the tournament.
Cummins was part of the Kolkata squad in 2014 and 2015 and last played in the tournament for Delhi in 2017. The Mumbai Indians picked him up the following season but he was ruled out with a back injury.
England allrounder Ben Stokes was the previous most expensive overseas buy before Cummins, after Pune paid 145 million rupees for him in 2017.
A total of 62 players were sold at the auction for the 13th edition with the eight franchises spending a total of 1.403 billion rupees.
There was a hefty payday for more Australians with Glenn Maxwell going to Kings XI Punjab for 107.5 million rupees ($2.19m) and reigning champions Mumbai paying 80 million rupees for paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile ($1.63m).
Maxwell recently returned to Twenty20 cricket after taking six weeks off from the game to deal with mental health issues and was left out of the Australia squad for next month's limited-overs tour of India.
Australia's one-day captain Aaron Finch joined Bangalore for 44 million rupees ($897,454) while South African fast bowler Dale Steyn twice went unsold before his former team Bangalore picked him up in the last leg at his listed price of 20 million ($410,000).
Former India leg-spinner Piyush Chawla was the top buy among home-based players, going to MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings for 67.5 million, while Kolkata signed 48-year-old leggie Pravin Tambe, the oldest player in the auction.
