The much-anticipated PKL Auction 2021 is underway in Mumbai. The second day of the event kicked off, with around 22 players getting picked out of over 40 overseas players.
As many overseas players have stamped their authority in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), franchises have spent a decent chunk of money on foreign stars to add value to the team and bring different styles of gameplay. It was exciting to see the PKL teams showing interest in international stars from Iran, South Korea, Bangladesh, Japan, and Kenya.
Young Irani talent Mohammadreza Shadlou Chianeh sparked a bidding war among the teams. Three-time champion Patna Pirates signed him for ₹31 lakhs as the most expensive overseas buy at PKL Auction 2021.
Abozar Mighani became the second-most expensive player from the overseas list after the Bengal Warriors signed him for ₹30.50 lakhs.
Patna Pirates' management used their Final Bid Match (FBM) Card on Jang Kun Lee. They ended up paying him ₹20.5 lakhs, which made him the third costliest player.
Let's look at all the foreign players who got picked in the PKL Auction 2021.
