Women's Premier League 2024 player auction concluded with all five teams filling all available slots on Saturday, December 9. Indian uncapped players Kahsvee Gautam and Vrinda Dinesh bagged the mega deals but fans also witnessed veteran stars Devika Vaidya, Chamari Athapaththu and Deandra Dottin going unsold.

The experienced Indian cricketer Veda Krishnamurthy was snapped by Gujarat Giants in the acceleration round after going unsold in the main round. Champions Mumbai Indians signed the former UP Warriorz pacer Shabnim Ismail for INR 1.2 crore while Delhi Capitals broke the bank to sign Australian all-rounder Annabel Sutherland for INR 2.0 crore.
