IPL 2013: Clarke, Ponting set to highlight a low-key auction
Australian captain Michael Clarke and former skipper Ricky Ponting are likely to attract most attention when the nine franchises sit for the players’ auction of the Indian Premier League 6 in Chennai on Sunday.
While 101 players will go under the hammer during the auction, which will be only for the next edition, Clarke and Ponting, who are in the highest base price bracket of USD 400,000 (approx Rs 2.1 crore) will be the sought after players.
