Tymal Mills

Team: Royal Challengers Bangalore
T20s: 58
Wickets: 67
Best bowling: 4-22
Economy rate: 7.5
What he said: “The bidding was quite slow but once it hit 10 crore (£1.2m) I knew it was big money, but it kept going. When it finished I did not know how much it was worth. When I worked it out I could not believe it, it did not seem real. It’s an amount of money that can change your life. It will for me.”
