Pietersen, Flintoff becomes highest paid cricketers in IPL

Labels: , , ,

Finally the first auction of the IPL season 2 ended. And the English duo have been sold at a record price of a whooping $1.55 million US, beating MS Dhoni's price tag of 1.5 million.

Kevin Pietersen was sold to Bangalore Royal Challengers and Andrew Flintoff to Chennai Super Kings. Paul Collingwood and Owais Shah were bought by Delhi Daredevils for $ 275,000 each. Australian spearhead Shaun Tait was bought by Rajasthan Royals which in my opinion is a great replacement for Sohail Tanvir who won't be playing this season. The super emerging player of South Africa - Jean Paul Duminy was bought by the Mumbai Indians for a massive $ 950,000.
Deccan Chargers bought a couple of West Indians - Dwayne Smith for $ 100,000 and Fidel Edwards for $150,000.

The lesser known Tyron Henderson will now play for Rajasthan Royals for $650,000. The complete list is available here.

The other auction is going to take place later either this week or at least within this month.
