Aussie legend Adam Gilchrist gets picked by Team Sagittarius in the auctionsMCL2020 / Twitter

The auctions for the inaugural edition of the Masters Champions League (MCL) got under way in Dubai on Monday, 7 December, and legendary cricketers like Brian Lara, Sourav Ganguly, Jacques Kallis, and others, have finally been assigned a team.

The T20 tournament for the retired cricketers, which is likely to run from 28 January through 15 February, will see as many as six teams battling it out in the league in UAE. And a total of 90 retired cricketers will be looking to turning back the clock once more in the 22 yard-field.

The six franchisees had a total purchasing capacity of $750,000 to spend in the auctions, and they had already spent a combined $100,000 on two 'Legend' players. According to the rules of the auction, there are four categories of players -- Legends, Icons, A+, A and Associate country players.

The base price of the 'Icons' remained at $100,000, while the players who picked up 100 International caps or more (Category A+) started at a price of $30,000.
