New Delhi. At present, the process of auction is going on in Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL 2023 Auction). This is the first time that auctions are happening in TNPL. Prior to this, during the six seasons held so far, the team was selected through the draft. This T20 league is a hit on the lines of IPL at Tamil Nadu level. Team India’s star spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin was also present during the auction. He was present at the auction table while selecting the team for his franchise Dindigul Dragons.
During this, Ashwin also added such a mystery spinner to his team, who at one time had cleared his address from Team India. We are talking about Varun Chakraborty. Varun was given a place in Team India during the World Cup 2021 played in UAE.
Ashwin was also a part of this World Cup. Then looking at the brilliant IPL season, Varun was preferred over Ashwin in Team India. However, he failed to leave any impact during this period. After this he was never seen in Team India.
Varun Chakraborty has been sold for Rs 6.25 lakh in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. He was bought by Ashwin’s Dindigul Dragons. Apart from this, there are big stars in TNPL, Vijay Shankar, who was bought for Rs 10.25 lakh. T Natarajan sold for Rs 6.25 lakh. Washington Sundar got a bid of Rs 6.75 lakh. Sandeep Warrier has been sold for Rs 8.25 lakh.
