    Default Sandeep, Sardar command top base price of Rs 15 lakh at HIL

    India captain Sardar Singh and ace dragflicker Sandeep Singh will command the highest base-price of Rs 15 lakh each at the upcoming players` auction of the cash-rich Hockey India League (HIL) slated on Sunday.

    Sardar and Sandeep, with reserve price of USD 27,800 each are the players with highest base-price among the Indians as well as foreign players.

    A list of 246 players issued by HI to be auctioned have been divided into 13 base-price categories ranging from Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 15 lakh.

    A base price of Rs 13.5 lakh has been kept for Australia`s captain Jamie Dwyer along with countryman Glenn Turner, Maritz Fuertse and Oliver Korn (Germany), Mohammad Imran and Mahmood Rashid (Pakistan), Pol Amat (Spain).

    Netherland`s prolific penalty corner specialist Taeke Taekema and Teun De Nooijer are also in the same bracket which is equivalent to USD 25,000.

    The base price for ex-captain Shivendra Singh and Gurbaj Singh is Rs 10 lakh, while teams looking to buy Ignace Tirkey and Tushar Khandekar will have to start their bidding from Rs 7.5 lakh.

    Custodian Bharat Chettri, who led India at the London Olympics carries a base price tag of Rs 10 lakh (approx) while fellow goalie PR Sreejesh is priced at approximately Rs 7.5 lakh.

    Till now only five bids for ownership of the franchises have been received while HIL is planning a six-team league.

    The companies owning the five franchises are Delhi (Wave group), Ranchi (Patel- Uniexcel group), Punjab (Jaypee group), Lucknow (Sahara India) and Mumbai (Burman family).

    Default Sardar Singh, VR Raghunanth top draw at Hockey India League auction

    India's captain and star playmaker Sardar Singh became the highest paid player as he went for a whopping $78,000 to Delhi Wave Riders while Uttar Pradesh Wizards bought ace drag-flicker V.R. Raghunath for $76,000 at the Hockey India League (HIL) players' auction here on Sunday.

    Sardar with India team mate Sandeep Singh, Australian Jamie Dwyer, Dutch legend Teun De Nooijer and German Mortiz Fuertse were the marquee players of the league.

    Dwyer was bought by Jaypee Punjab Warriors for $60,000, Fuertse by Ranchi Rhinos for $75,500 and Nooijer by Uttar Pradesh Wizards for $66,000.

    But Sandeep, who is out of the team after a poor Olympics, was sold to Mumbai Magicians for a base price of $27,800. But thanks to Australian defender Joel Caroll, Sandeep will be getting a better pay package. Caroll was bought by Mumbai for $56,000 and as a marquee player Sandeep will be getting 15 percent more than the Australian.

    The biggest disappointment of the day was former India captain and goalkeeper Bharat Chettri going unsold. The Kalimpong boy had a reserve price of $18,550.

    Chettri, who led India to a last-place finish at the London Olympics, was dropped from the national squad after the Games.

    India's other two goalkeepers got a good deal. First choice goalkeeper P.R. Sreejesh, with a reserve price of $13,900, was sold to Mumbai Magicians for $38,000 while P.T Rao, who made an impressive debut at the age of 34 at the Champions Trophy, was also sold to Mumbai for $17,000. Rao had a reserve price of $5,600.

    Other important Indian players sold at the auction were S.V. Sunil (Punjab for $42,000), Yuvraj Walmiki (Delhi for $18,000), and Shivendra Singh (Punjab for $27,500).

    Mumbai's Tushar Khandekar was sold for only $100 more than his reserve price of $13,900 to Uttar Pradesh while S.K. Uthappa went to the same team for $25,000 and Gurbaj Singh to Delhi for $36,000.

    Ignace Tirkey, who had a reserve price of $13,900, went to Punjab for $31,000 while Rupinder Pal Singh, with a base price of $9,250, was sold to Uttar Pradesh for $56,000.

    Unlike cricket's Indian Premier League (IPL), there were no problems with the auction of Pakistani players as the Mumbai franchise bought Fareed Ahmed for $21,000 and Mohammed Rashid for $41,000.

    All teams have a purse of $650,000. Each team will comprise 24 players - 14 Indians and 10 overseas. The league will be held in five cities from Jan 17.

    On being sold for the highest price, Sardar said: "It feels very good. I am enjoying the moment. Hopefully all players will get a good deal. There will a banter among the national team players about who are sold for what."
