Atrachali becomes costliest buy

New Delhi, May 30: Pro Kabaddi league one of the most entertainment game in the recent times, here an interesting update has emerged that, Iranian defender Fazel Atrachali became the costliest buy in the history of the Pro Kabaddi League after being pocketed by U Mumba for a whopping Rs 1 crore at the league's foreign player auctions here on Wednesday.

In this regard, I am happy to come back to my second home U Mumba: Fazel Atrachali tells reporters on the phone from Iran.

Having a base price of Rs 30 lakh, the 26-year-old sparked off a bidding war between Jaipur Pink Panthers and the Mumbai-based franchise; however, it was the latter who bagged Atrachali.

Here is the option for Gujarat Fortunegiants to retain the Iranian but they declined to exercise the Final Bid Match (FBM) option.

On the other hand, South Korean raider Jang Kun Lee was bought by Haryana Steelers for Rs 33 lakh. However, the Bengal Warriors utilised the FBM card to retain the 25-year-old.
