The second annual CPL auction was well attended on Friday night, with a host of players eager to see whether they’d be retained by their franchises, or wearing new colours this summer.
Although the power was handed back to the players this year, none of the eight players that were picked for retention by their captains refused the invitation.
Those decisions helped set up an intriguing auction, with the Bourne Stars setting an early tone by splashing £7m on Dave Risk.
That wasn’t the biggest spend of the night, however, with the Gogmore Knights taking that honour with their £9m purchase of new overseas player Will Smith (more on him soon).
Here’s the full squad lists for all four sides. Who do you think did the best business ahead of the season opener on May 20th?
