All the six Bangladesh cricketers were placed at the base price of rupees three million and among them, only Tamim has the experience of playing the IPL, for Pune Warriors. The left-handed opening batsman though did not play any game.
All-rounder Shakib al Hasan and fast bowling sensation Mustafizur Rahman have been retained by their respective franchises - Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Mustafiz was instrumental behind Sunrisers' championship win in the previous season while Shakib will play his sixth season with the Knight Riders.
However, the chances of the Bangladesh cricketers getting picked up in the auction are very less as the Tigers will be busy with the tour of Sri Lanka when the IPL begins.
