Kevin Pieterson and Andrews Flintoff of England are the most expensive players in the Twenty20Indian Premier League having won record contracts at the pre-season auction in Goa on Friday, the 6th of February, 2009. They have pledged 10% of their potential IPL feeds to Hampshire and Lancashire. This trend is likely to continue and improve in future matches.
Pieterson was acquired by the Bangalore Royal Challengers of Vijay mallya for $1.5 million while Flintoff signed up with Chennai Super Kings for the same figure.
All the 17 slots were filled up in just two hours.
Several other cricketeers also improved significantly in this auction.
The biggest question doing the rounds is, where is the so-called recession the whole world suffers from?
