Patna Pirates let Pardeep Narwal go and has roped in Sachin Tanwar for a massive Rs. 84 Lakh price tag. The three-time champion also spent liberally on raider Prashant Kumar Rai (Rs 55 Lakh) and also roped in the most expensive foreign signing of the auction this season – Iran’s Mohammadreza Shadloui Chiyaneh – for Rs. 31 Lakh.
Monu Goyat, who has been a part of this team’s title-winning campaign in 2017, returned to the side for a disappointing Rs. 20 Lakh fee.
The team still feels a little underdone. How the side shapes up when the season begins will be interesting to watch.
Here’s what the final squad for the Patna Pirates looks like after the three-day auction.
|Rajveersinh Pratap Rao Chavan||Raider||Retained|
|Jangkun Lee||Raider||Rs.20.50 L|
