He was snapped up by Mumbai South Central for Rs 50,000. <p></p> <p></p>On the other hand, left-arm spinner Pawar had played for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy and then Baroda before his action was called "suspect". <p></p> <p></p>Pawar was chosen by the Mumbai North team for Rs 80000. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, the six franchises bought 119 players for a collective sum of Rs 2.03 crores during the players' auction yesterday for the inaugural League. <p></p> <p></p>The teams Mumbai North, Mumbai North-West, Mumbai North-East, Mumbai North-Central, Mumbai South-Central, Mumbai South had a budget of Rs 35 lakhs each to form a squad consisting of a minimum of 16 players and a maximum of 20 players. <p></p> <p></p>It was mandatory for the teams to spend a minimum of Rs 30 lakhs. <p></p> <p></p>While the Icon players had a base price of Rs 4 lakhs, the First Class players had a base price of Rs 1.5 lakhs. <p></p> <p></p>The List A Players (players who have represented Mumbai in other national domestic tournaments or India U-19 and India A teams in the last three years) were the next with a base price of Rs 1 lakh, followed by Emerging Players (players who have represented Mumbai in other national domestic tournaments or the U-19 or U-23 teams in the last three years) with a base price of Rs 75,000. <p></p> <p></p>The final category was that of the Developmental Players (players representing any club or team that is affiliated to MCA or any MCA affiliate teams), who had a base price of Rs 50,000. <p></p> <p></p>The Player Regulations for the league made it mandatory for each team to include only one Icon player and 5 First Class players in their squad. It was also compulsory for each franchise to include a minimum of 4 Emerging Players and/or Developmental Players in aggregate in the squad. <p></p> <p></p>A total of 119 players were sold, including six Icon players, and the list had 30 who had played First Class cricket. The total number of List A Players sold was 17, while the total number of Emerging and Developmental Players sold stood at 66.
