It was a lively and eventful inaugural CPL draft on Friday night, as the four franchises spent their (fictional) cash and filled their playing rosters for the season.
As you’ll see from the below list of squads, Meads Enforcers were the big spenders on the night, landing 1st XI players Jake Taylor and Luke Westcott for a combined £15m (three quarters of their entire budget).
Grove Armada chose to spend little and often and picked up the most players through the auction section, with nine purchases.
Bourne Stars made new overseas player Wade Cupido their big buy, while adding last year’s Batting Award winner Zeeshan Mehtab for £5m.
Meanwhile, Gogmore Knights put their faith in youth. Five of the seven players bought by the franchise are aged under 30.
The Genet Social League sides were also allocated to each franchise, the result of which can be seen below. All that’s left now is to get underway and the competition’s fixtures can be found here.
