About 150 foreigners went under the hammer for the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) auction yesterday despite a pay row which saw many cricketers not paid their full dues for the first season

Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan hit the jackpot as he went for $365,000.

Pakistani opener Imran Nazir was sold for the second-highest $280,000 and Afridi for $275,000, while more than a dozen foreigners went for over $100,000, according to Channel 9 which telecast the auction live.
