The Maharashtra Cricket Association has decided to restart the discontinued Maharashtra Premier League this year. A player auction was held for this on Tuesday (June 6). Also, the MPL’s summit committee also decided the names of the six teams that will participate in the tournament. Hailing from Dharashiv, Noshad Sheikh became the highest earning cricketer in ML 2023. Kolhapur Tuskers bought him for Rs 6 lakh. Let’s take a look at the five most expensive players of ML 2023.
ML is starting with a new vigor this year. Puneri Bappa, Kolhapur Tuskers, Eagle Nashik Titans, Chhatrapati Sambhaji Kings, Ratnagiri Jets and Solapur Royals have participated in this tournament. Each team had a limit of Rs 20 lakh to buy players in the auction. With that much money, the teams needed to buy their 16 player squad. But still, teams spent heartily on a handful of players.
