- South Africa’s national captain Bavuma remained unsold in T20 league auction
- Test team captain Dean Elgar also did not get buyers
- South African young player Tristan Stubbs was the most expensive player
SA T20 League: For the T20 league to be held in South Africa, on the night of Monday 19 September, 6 franchises prepared their teams by bidding one after the other. Meanwhile, South African national team’s young player Tristan Stubbs was the most expensive player. At the same time, the national captain Temba Bavuma of the same team could not find any buyer. Not getting a place in any team for the national captain of the country whose T20 league is there, is a big insult. It is worth noting that Bavuma is leading the squad for the recently released upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.
Apart from Temba Bavuma, no team showed interest in buying Dean Elgar, the captain of South Africa’s Test team. Apart from this, Roston Chase and Carlos Brathwaite of West Indies, New Zealand legend Ross Taylor, India’s Unmukt Chand and South African young player Keegan Pietersen were also not bought by anyone. Talking about the top-10 unsold players, the name of former Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal is also included in this. But the most talked about topic was Bavuma, who is the captain of the National T20 side.
