Eoin Morgan seals Bangalore IPL deal

Post  IceQueen on Wed 20 Jan - 4:13

Eoin Morgan was the only England player to be bought at the auction for the 2010 Indian Premier League.

The 23-year-old batsman will join the Royal Challengers Bangalore after being sold for a fee of £134,000.

Only 11 out of the 66 overseas players attracted successful bids, with England's Graeme Swann and all 11 Pakistan players left unsold.

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard and New Zealand paceman Shane Bond were the costliest players at the auction.

While Morgan was the only English player to be sold at the auction, there are plenty of his compatriots already contracted to IPL teams.

Kevin Pietersen will be with Morgan in Bangalore, Paul Collingwood plays for the Delhi Daredevils, Dimitri Mascarenhas is with the Rajasthan Royals, Ravi Bopara plays for Kings XI Punjab, Graham Napier plays for Mumbai while Owais Shah was traded to the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Andrew Flintoff is with the Chennai Super Kings but will miss the second year of his contract because of injury.

Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata all matched the £458,000 maximum offer for the 22-year-old Pollard.
