Here we take a look at the five players with most expensive spells in IPL history.
#5 Ashok Dinda
In 2013, during the sixth season of the tournament, when the Pune Warriors India took on the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, Ashok Dinda had a night to forget.
The Indian bowler bowled his four overs but got absolutely thrashed all around the ground for 63 runs and picked up no wickets.
Dinda is an experienced bowler in the competition, aged 34 and has not been picked up by any side this season. Although the last time he played in the IPL was for the Rising Pune Supergiants.
Dinda played for five IPL franchises during his career namely, DD, RCB, KKR and the two former Pune teams. Dinda was smashed for 63 runs in his four overs against the side that went on to win the competition that season.
