Bengaluru, July 27: Pavan Deshpande (₹7.3 lakh) turned out to be the star attraction in the player auction for the eighth season of the Karnataka Premier League (KPL) here on Saturday.

After rigorous bidding among the franchisees for the left-handed batsman and off-spinner, Shivamogga Lions signed up the Dharwad-born lad. His Vulture Cricket Club team-mate Aniruddha Joshi was bagged by Mysuru Warriors for ₹7.1 lakh from the elite Pool ‘A’.

From the Pool ‘B’, former Railways and Nagaland skipper Jonathan Rongsen was picked up by Bengaluru Blasters for a lucrative ₹6 lakh.

With doubts about their availability due to the international and domestic tournaments, star cricketers Karun Nair, Shreyas Gopal and Ronit More went unsold. Meanwhile, the team owners gambled with their bids on all-rounder K. Gowtham, Prasidh Krishna, Manish Pandey and R. Samarth – who are also on similar commitments.

Former Karnataka opener Robin Uthappa withdrew his nomination from the auction owing to his commitments with the Kerala Cricket Association. All-rounder Stuart Binny, who is currently playing for Beckenham Cricket Club in the Kent Premier League, was also not part of the auction list.
