Also, India's S Sreesanth and Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan have registered for the auction.



However, Australia pacer Mitchell Starc and England's Joe Root have opted out of the 2021 edition of the IPL as they did not register for the auction.

Also, others in the list to have their base price at INR 2 crore are Kedar Jadhav, Harbhajan Singh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy, Mark Wood, and Colin Ingram.



Sreesanth made a return to competitive cricket last month in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match after serving his ban.



India's Hanuma Vihari, Umesh Yadav, Australia's Aaron Finch, and Marnus Labuschagne have all listed their base prices at INR 1 crore.
