All-rounder M Shah Rukh Khan became the first player to be picked at the Player Draft of India Cements Ltd. TNPL (Season 2) at the ITC Grand Chola, Chennai, on Friday. Khan moved from Ruby Trichy Warriors to Madurai Super Giant. Madurai got the advantage of choosing players first, after finishing at the bottom of the table last year. They picked nine players, one in each round.
The teams had to pick players from three categories – Under-19, District and City -- in the hour-long affair conducted by TNPL Governing Council member L Sivaramakrishnan.
Albert TUTI Patriots, the defending champions, was the only team that retained their full squad.
Given that they retained the winning squad, Patriots did not pick anyone at the Player Draft on Friday.
