Ben Dunk, the Innisfail Show, has been picked up by the Darjeeling Super Chai Princes in the IPL auction for a franchise record of 1.35 crore.
Dunk, who was previously captain of the Cochin Royal Palm Riders, will relocate his support staff, including his dhobi-wallah, and seven svaaminees. He is also expected to grow a moustache.
The iShow is no stranger to the north of the country, having previously served as a consultant for the Indian Cricket Police (above) in their efforts to locate and prosecute those profiting from the underground snuff-cricket industry.
Whilst the deadly sport has been eradicated in the major cities, pockets of resistance have broken out in the jungles of West Bengal and Assam. Dunk is expected to be warmly welcomed by those brave moonchhen. It is not known if he plans to don the saphed baaltee
The IPL commences on April 4.
