Season Scenes

The Season 2 of the Premier Badminton League well over a month away but the Hyderabad Hunters have already started to make some serious show of intent. At the recently concluded Player Auctions, the Hunters outbid its rivals to bag Olympic Gold medalist Carolina Marin. The Spanish sensation was bought at an auction price of ₹62 Lakhs – the highest bid for any player in the draft.

The team also bolstered its ranks with the acquisition of Boon Heing Tan & Wee Kiong Tan. Wee finished runner up at this year’s Rio Olympics and is ranked #3 in the world while Boon is the record holder for the fastest smash it the world. Englishman Rajiv Ouseph & Chau Hoi Wah were some of the other attractive bids made by the team.

The new-look Hyderabad Hunters choose to retain J Meghana & Satwik Sairaj – who will continue their development and would be players to watch out in the future. B. Sai Praneeth & Sameer Verma are the local players who will be looking to make a mark for themselves in the league.

The two-day auction cum team-owners workshop was held on the 8th & 9th November 2016.
