The IPL 4 auctions have commenced in Bangalore, and Sourav Ganguly has found no team that has bid for him, unfortunately he went unsold. The former Indian captain had a base price of $400,000, and he utterly failed to even clinch that. Previously Ganguly was placed at a base price of $200,000, then the stake was risen to $400,000, the highest price for marquee players at the auctions.
Sourav Ganguly had a really tough time during the past IPL’s and this is something that has just reflected here at the bids, his performance was not up to the notch where the auctioneers were impressed. Today Ganguly is the oldest player in the IPL, and this has also been accounted during the auctions.
It was clear enough, that the Knight Riders were not at all impressed with the former captain, and they successfully released him from his contract. When his name was called out, the Knight Riders officials were just looking down, until his name was tossed in the unsold basket. It is rumoured that Pune may buy the former Indian captain, but even here he portrayed to hike his base price.
