Clarke, Ponting top 2013 Player Auction list

Current and former Aus captains get maximum reserve price

Australia’s Test captain, Michael Clarke, and retired former captain, Ricky Ponting, top the list of 108 players to feature in 2013 IPL Player Auction to be held on Feb 3 in Chennai. Along with the two Australians, South African all-rounder, Johan Botha, and Indian medium pacer, RP Singh, form the list of four marquee players.

Clarke played for Pune Warriors India in IPL 2012 after they bought him on a one year contract outside of the auction. Ponting was part of the inaugural IPL season, in 2008, playing for Kolkata Knight Riders. He was released by the franchise in 2010. The two Australians will go under the hammer with highest reserve price of USD 400,000.

Botha, who played for Rajasthan Royals until the last season, will go into the auction with a base price of USD 300,000.

Having been released by Mumbai Indians, RP Singh will feature in the auction with a base price of USD 100,000.

West Indies’ World Twenty20 2012 winning captain and all-rounder, Darren Sammy, will feature in the IPL Player Auction for the first time, with a reserve price of USD 100,000. England’s batsman, Ravi Bopara (USD 100,000) and wicketkeeper batsman, Matt Prior (USD 200,000) have also made it to the auction list.

The list of 101 players feature seven Indians, including Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy winning all-rounder, Abhishek Nayar (USD 100,000), who has been released by Kings XI Punjab. Nayar’s Mumbai team-mate Wasim Jaffer, who scored a title-winning century in the Ranji Trophy final, is also on the list at a reserve price of USD 50,000. Pacers, Sudeep Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat, Pankaj Singh and Manpreet Gony are the remaining Indians to go under the hammer.

On the list that is dominated by the South Africans, Sri Lankans and the Australians, Ireland’s all-rounder, Kevin O’Brien is the lone representative of the associate countries.

Any of those on this auction list who are not taken during the auction on Feb 3, along with those who made themselves available for the auction but did not make the auction list, may still be signed after the auction as injury replacements.
