Afridi and Gayle fetch highest BPL prices

Post  nazmul07npk on Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:53 pm

Pakistan's Shahid Afridi outdid West Indies batsman Chris Gayle, who is
widely considered the most valuable Twenty20 player in the world, by
fetching the biggest price at inaugural Bangladesh Premier League
auction in Dhaka. Afridi was snapped by Dhaka Gladiators for US $700,000
a little after Gayle, whose international career has been stalled by a
long-running dispute with the WICB, went for $551,000 to the Barisal

West Indies cricketers fared well at the auction, with Marlon Samuels
getting a $360,000 bid from Duronto Rajshahi, and Kieron Pollard picking
up a $300,000 deal with Gladiators. Allrounders Dwayne Bravo and Shoaib
Malik were bought for $150,000 each.

Seventeen foreign players were put on auction with a base price of
$100,000 including former Sri Lankan bowlers Muttiah Muralitharan and
Chaminda Vaas, the New Zealand allrounder Scott Styris and Zimbabwe
captain Brendan Taylor. Stuart MacGill, who has come back from
retirement to play the Big Bash League, was one of 36 players auctioned
at a base price of $50,000.

The BPL will be contested by six franchises that were bought for prices
ranging between $1.01 million and $1.2 million, with SQ Sports picking
up Chittagong for the highest value during the franchise auction on
January 10.
