Indian Pro kabaddi League is set to begin from 28 July after four successful previous seasons.
Earlier this week, the player auctions were held, which saw a total of 12 teams, including four new ones, fighting for kabaddi stars from a pool consisting of over 400 players.
A total Rs 46.99 Crores were spent on 227 players a huge jump from the season 4 auction with Nitin Tomer leading the list at Rs 93 Lakhs who was bought by the new yet-to-be-named Uttar Pradesh side.
Among the foreign players, it was Jang Kun Lee who had the highest payday after netting a cool Rs 80.3 lakh sum, thanks to the dynamic pricing system.
In this system, the contracted amount for the retained player of the existing eight franchises and the priority pick of the four new ones was contingent on the overall auction activity of the teams. It was either the base price of the category to which the player belonged or 110% of the highest amount paid for a single player from the same or lower category, which ever is higher.
