Mumbai: Mumbai's leading run-getter of the season, Abhishek Nayar, is focused on the Irani Cup game against the Rest of India, commencing here on February 6, and is not exactly celebrating the steep price of Rs 3.5 crore that he commanded at the Indian Premier League auction.

"To be honest it has not sunk in yet because the Irani Trophy game is round the corner and I am more focused towards that. Hopefully, post that or post to having a good IPL, I can think about the money part. As of now that's not on my mind," Nayar said on Monday after Mumbai's practice session at the Wankhede Stadium.

Nayar was bought for USD 675,000 by Pune Warriors at the auction held in Chennai on Sunday, and would be moving over to play for a new franchise in IPL-6, to be held from April 3, after having represented Kings XI Punjab last season.
