Jang kung Lee of korea becomes the most valuable international player after he was retained by Bengal & due to dynamic pricing his price went up to whooping Rs 80.3 Lakhs in Pro kabaddi League Season 5.
Now Dynamic pricing is a very complex rule of Pro kabaddi Season 5 !! Lets us see the Base price of Retained players first !
1. Elite/Retained Players and Priority picks premium base prices
Category A – INR 35 Lakh
Category B – INR 20 Lakh
Category C – INR 12 Lakh
For the Elite player (Elite retained or priority pick), the final salary will be dependent on the particular team’s highest spend on a player during the auction. This means that their salary cap will be updated Real-Time on the day of the auction. The salary payable to Elite player shall be the higher of:
– The premium base salary or
– A 10% increment on the highest amount bid by the respective Franchisee for any other Player of the same or lower category acquired in the Season V Open Auction
For example – If a player retained by a Franchise is a Cat B player (with premium base salary of say 20Lacks) and during the auction the Franchise bids 40L for either a Cat B or Cat C player (which is greater than premium base salary of retained player) then the salary payable to Elite player will be 44L
Note – if Franchise bids 40 L for Cat A player, this does not change the salary payable to elite player because the Elite player (Cat B) is a lower category player than auctioned player (cat A)
Now, Because Bengal bought Surjeet Singh for Rs 73 Lakhs, Jang Lee’s price went up to (RS 73 Lakhs + 10%) i.e. Rs 80.3 Lakhs . Iran’s Abozar Mohajermighani sold to Team Gujarat for RS 50 lakh.
