Mushfiqur makes late entry to IPL 2021 auction

Mushfiqur Rahim is the latest Bangladeshi to enter Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 auction.

Mushfiqur previously did not register for this year’s edition. However, just hours before the start of auction on Thursday, the veteran put his name up for grabs in wicket-keepers’ category. The base price is set at 10,000,000 Indian rupees (approx. 13800 USD).

Shakib Al Hasan (base price 2 crore), Mustafizur Rahman (1 crore), Mahmudullah Riyad (75 lakhs) and Mohammad Saifuddin (50 lakh) are the other Bangladeshis who have been shortlisted for the auction.

The wicket-keeper category includes other overseas men: Sam Billings, Alex Carey, Kusal Perera, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Matthew Wade, Glenn Phillips, Josh Inglis and Ben McDermott.

The IPL committee announced on February 11 that 125 overseas and 164 Indian players would go under the hammer in Chennai.

On Wednesday, England pacer Mark Wood withdrew his name from the auction to spend time with his family at home.
