TNPL 2024 Auction: List Of Players Sold And Prices

Written by Timeline Sports Desk

The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2024 auction saw a bidding war between the top franchises. A total of 61 players went under the hammer for the upcoming season this year. IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans brought R. Sai Kishore for INR 22 lakh while R. Sanjay Yadav went to Trichy Grand Cholas for INR 22 lakh each, making them the costliest buy of the tournament.

Incidentally, R. Sai Kishore and R. Sanjay Yadav’s final bid price is equal to B. Sai Sudharsan’s. He became the costliest player to be sold to the now-defending champions Lyca Kovai Kings last year.

The Tiruppur franchise bought left-arm fast bowler T Natarajan for INR 11.25 lakh while all-rounder S. Harish Kumar was bought for a price of INR. 15.40 lakh from Salem Spartans. The Spartans also roped in the big-hitting R. Vivek for a fee of INR. 11 lakh.

“We wanted one marquee fast bowler and were looking at Sandeep Warrier or T. Natarajan based on who came first on the list. We are delighted we got Sandeep,” Dragons captain R. Ashwin said.

The upcoming edition of the TNPL will be held from July 5 to August 4, with the league phase slated to take place in four cities: Dindigul, Tirunelveli, Salem and Coimbatore. The eliminator and the final will be staged at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, marking the return of TNPL to the city for the first time since 2021.
