Mumbai (EMS). The second Women’s Premier League (WPL) is going to be auctioned on December 9. In this, a total of 165 players including 61 foreigners from all over the world will be auctioned. The most important thing is that everyone’s eyes are fixed on the base price of foreign players including Chamari Atapattu, Annabel Sutherland, Danny Wyatt. It is noteworthy that the base price of Sri Lankan all-rounder Chamari Atapattu is Rs 30 lakh. Despite this, he did not find any buyers in the inaugural WPL auction. Chamari also did not get a place in the Women’s Hundred, Women’s Big Bash League or the Women’s Caribbean Premier League, but the Sri Lankan captain performed brilliantly in 2023. Whereas the base price of Australia’s Annabel Sutherland is Rs 40 lakh. Annabel played four matches in WPL 2023 and scored only 28 runs. Let us tell you that Annabel returned to form in the Women’s Ashes and scored her first Test century in Australia’s victory in Nottingham. The team also faced defeat in the T-20 match against England at The Oval.
However, in this Annabel took three wickets for 28 runs. The base price of England all-rounder Danny Wyatt is Rs 30 lakh. She is one of only three women to have played more than 150 T20 matches. She was somewhat disappointed as she did not find any buyer last time with the base price of Rs 50 lakh. She has topped the batting charts for Women’s Hundred champion Southern Brave and Charlotte Edwards (CE) Cup winners Southern Vipers. Similarly, Australian spinner Amanda-Jade Wellington’s base price is Rs 30 lakh. She has been part of title-winning teams in the Fairbreak Global Invitational Tournament, WCPL and WBBL. He was dropped from Australia’s T20 World Cup squad earlier this year.
Fairbreak Global had a stellar performance for Barbados Royals in the WCPL final, taking 4 wickets. Another female player, South African fast bowler Shabnim Ismail, has a base price of Rs 40 lakh. UP Warriors bought Ismail for Rs 1 crore due to stiff bidding in the last auction, but he finds himself back in the auction pool this year after only three matches in the season. The South African fast bowler, who retired from international matches earlier this year, had given her best performance in the Women’s Hundred, WCPL and WBBL.
