IPL 2017 auction: Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan create history with Sunrisers Hyderabad selection

Bengaluru: Afghanistan cricket broke a new barrier when Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan became the first from the war-torn nation to be picked in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction, in Bengaluru on Monday.

Both Nabi and Khan were bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad, for Rs 30 lakh and Rs 4 crore respectively. Five cricketers from Afghanistan were included in the auction for the first time.

It was a bit surprising that seasoned all-rounder Nabi was snapped up at his base price while leg-spinner Khan got the benefit of a bidding war between Sunrisers and Mumbai Indians and was eventually sold for eight times his base price.

Both players are currently with the national team in Zimbabwe.

"Feeling on top of the world, being selected for Team @SunRisers @IPL auction. Tnx for your love & support," Nabi tweeted shortly after getting the big news.

Meet Mohammed Siraj, Hyderabad auto driver's son, bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 2.6 crore in IPL auction

New Delhi: For Mohammed Siraj, the first thing on his mind is to buy a house for his father Mohammed Ghaus and mother Shabana Begum in a good Hyderabad locality.

And why not? The speedster has landed a Rs 2.6 crore deal with Sunrisers Hyderabad, thanks to a brilliant first class season that saw him get India A and Rest of India call-ups.

"Today, I remember my first income playing cricket. It was a club match and my maternal uncle was the captain of the team. I got 9 wickets for 20 odd runs in that 25 over game. My uncle was so happy he gave me Rs 500 as a prize. It was a great feeling. But today when the bid was raised to Rs 2.6 crore, I just went numb," Siraj told PTI during an interaction from Hyderabad.

Coming from a lower middle class family, it is but obvious that he is indebted to his parents for their sacrifices in making him a professional cricketer.

Note ban can't alone curb black money accumulation: Rangarajan

Demonetisation cannot be a "standalone measure" to check black money as others like tax and electoral reforms are needed to tackle this menace, former RBI Governor C Rangarajan said here today.

He maintained that the authorities should have been well prepared for the note ban exercise.

"The demonetisation measure has no doubt sent shivers down the spine of some. However, because of the shortage of new currency to replace the old many have suffered.

"All this will have an immediate effect on the economy which will be adverse. The long term gains are in terms of reduction in the proportion of pure cash transactions, and a shift to digital mode of payment leading to recording of all transactions and thereby helping to widen tax net," Rangarajan said.

He was delivering inaugural address at 32nd Conference of All India Reserve Bank Employees Association here.
