    Default 10 foreign, one Indian players bought in IPL-3

    10 foreign, one Indian players bought in IPL-3

    MUMBAI: The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2010 Tuesday kicked off in earnest with the third Players Auction at Mumbai in which ten foreign and one Indian players were bought by the eight franchises on the basis of their nationality rather than performance.

    However, no Pakistani cricketer has been included in the IPL.

    With a mere seven weeks to go, all the eight franchisees utilized distinct strategies to pick up the players that formed a tactical fit for the playing squads.

    The highlight of the auction though was the use of a tie-breaker which was used twice to break the deadlock for two debutants namely Keiron Pollard and Shane Bon. They were the costliest players in this auction bought for 750,000 dollars each.

    The West Indian all-rounder Keiron Pollard will now play for the Mumbai Indians after a four way tie between Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. New Zealand pacer Shane Bond will debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders after a two way tie with the Deccan Chargers.

    Another West Indian Kemar Roach saw multiple bids and a distinctly higher bid price of US$ 720,000 as compared to his base price of US $ 100,000. South African paceman Wayne Parnell was another sought after player at the third auction who finally went under the hammer to the Delhi Daredevils at US $ 610,000. Mohammad Kaif was picked up by the Kings XI Punjab for US $ 250,000 after being put back into the auction for a second round.

    The IPL 2010 will see one Englishman, three South Africans, two Australians, one New Zealander, two West Indians and one Sri Lankan make their debuts in the Indian Premier League 2010.
