LONDON - Kevin Pietersen and Graeme Swann are among six England stars set for IPL deals worth more than 250,000 pounds, provided they are bought in the auction.
James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Luke Wright and Mike Yardy are also set to go under the hammer next month.
The top six World Twenty20 winners have put themselves in the top bracket of the 416 players up for sale, The Sun reports.
Paul Collingwood, Craig Kieswetter, Ravi Bopara and Eoin Morgan will also go under the hammer but have set their reserve prices lower.
Pietersen became the tournament’s highest-paid player two years ago when he was snapped up by Royal Challengers Bangalore on a staggering 1.1million pounds contract.
West Indian legend Brian Lara, 41, has also put his name into the hat for the first time since retiring in 2007. (ANI)
