Shakib gets 2nd highest amount in CPL players’ draft

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh iconic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad are the two Bangladeshi players to play in the next Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Shakib secured the second highest  amount in the CPL auction. the Barbados Tridents bought Shakib for US $1.30 lakh, while Mahmdullah fetched 70,000 dollars by Jamaica Tallawahs.

The auction of the players was held in London on Thursday, according to Seven Sports online report.

New Zealand opener Martin Guptill is one of six players to secure top dollar in the Caribbean Premier League draft.

Guptill, who last season represented the Guyana Amazon Warriors, had set his base price at $US90,000 ($NZ125,000). He was secured by the Barbados Tridents.

Lendl Simmons, released by the Jamaica Tallawahs, was first pick of this year's draft for the same amount - secured by the St Lucia Stars, where he will be joined by New Zealand allrounder Mitchell McClenaghan.

Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo and Sohail Tanvir were also paid the maximum price.

Russell, returning from a one-year doping ban, was retained by the Tallawahs.

A pre-decided marquee set of players did not enter the draft, directly negotiating contracts with the franchises.

In-form Black Caps batsman Ross Taylor was one 47 new names from the draft, joining fellow Kiwis Guptill and Glenn Phillips at the Tallawahs.

Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum and allrounder Colin Munro have signed on with the Trinbago Knight Riders while Luke Ronchi has secured a contact with the Amazon Warriors.
