Viru, Yuvi among 11 Indians in Rs 2 cr base price bracket
New Delhi: Discarded veterans Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh have kept their base price in the highest bracket of Rs 2 crore for the upcoming auctions of the seventh edition of Indian Premier League.
There are 46 capped Indian players in the list of 233 international players who have enrolled for the auction. The base price for capped players (in INR) are 50 lakh, 1 crore, 1.5 crore and 2 crore respectively.
New Zealand's Corey Anderson has kept his base price at a moderate Rs 1 crore. It is widely expected that Anderson's price will hit the roof-top after his fastest century in ODIs and his stupendous all-round performance against India in the ongoing ODI series.
While Australian captain Michael Clarke has pulled out from the auction, Ashes Hero Mitchell Johnson's base price is Rs 2 crore.
While Sehwag, who has been horribly out of form, has kept himself in the highest bracket, two other veterans Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra are also expecting to fetch atleast Rs 2 crore or more at the auction if one goes by their decision to keep themselves in the highest bracket.
Dinesh Karthik, who was widely tipped to be retained by Mumbai Indians, has also kept a base price of Rs 2 crore.
Hard-hitting batsman Yusuf Pathan, who had three pathetic seasons with Kolkata Knight Riders is also in the highest bracket. Swing bowler Praveen Kumar, leg-spinner Amit Mishra, left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha, Test opener Murali Vijay, Bengal's Manoj Tiwary and Karnataka veteran Robin Uthappa are the other capped Indian players in the highest bracket.
