Veterans face the brunt

The SA 20 League auction was not very kind to some of the more veteran cricketers of the game, like Eoin Morgan, who went unsold.

The former Egland skipper was the first name out of the bag among the specialist batters and the World Cup-winning skipper went unsold.

However, more surprising than Morgan missing out was that both the South African captains Dean Elgar and Temba Bavuma went unsold.

Dean Elgar is the Test captain for South Africa. However, none of the six teams were interested in acquiring his services.

The West Indies off-spin bowling allrounder was among the other high-profile names to miss out during the auctions.
