Uncapped batter Donavon Ferreira, who plays for Titans, also created a big stir. Having listed his base price at Rand 175,000 (USD 10,000 approx.), the 24-year-old, who can also bowl and keep wicket, was eventually snapped up by Super Kings for Rand 5.5 million (USD 310,000 approx.) in the accelerated round of the auction. The winning bid came after some chaos, as Paarl Royals and Pretoria Capitals both tried to outbid Super Kings but were forced to pull out as they had not much left in their purse at that point and other spots still to fill – if they were allowed to keep bidding for Ferreira, they would have run out of the purse needed to fill their minimum quota of 17. Ferreira has played 19 T20s so far, boasting a strike rate of 148.26.
