Jhye Richardson shocked even himself with a life-changing $A2.48m windfall on Thursday after an Indian Premier League auction experience that left him mentally exhausted.

The West Australian fast bowler was one of three big Aussie winners from the IPL auction that delivered himself, Glenn Maxwell and fellow quick Riley Meredith more than $A6m in contracts.

Richardson, who is in Christchurch with the Australian T20 squad that includes Maxwell and Meredith, his new teammate at the Punjab Kings, said his only hope was just to get picked up.

But as the leading wicket-taker in the Big Bash season just gone, the 24-year-old was hot property and said the result was “amazing” and “life-changing”.
