Apart from Tamim Iqbal, three other players - - Suhrawardi Shuvo, Junaid Siddique and Abdur Razzak had been sold above Tk. 1 lakh.

Among them, Suhrawardi Shuvo, the captain of Dhaka Mohammedan ,who led the young side to become champion in the season curtained Dhaka Premier Twenty20 Cricket League, hogged the spotlight with cashing a Tk. 1.70 lakh per match. Pirates of Chittagong bought him against his base price of Tk. 20,000.
