Bloemfontein (South Africa), Apr. 7: South African cricketers like batsman J P Duminy and left-arm quick Wayne Parnell have emerged as much sought after and potential replacements for players opting out of the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), given their recent performances against Australia.
A bid of Rand 9.5 million has already been tabled for Duminy, while Parnell is emerging as a red-hot buy after his excellent performance on the second one-day international against Australia.
Yusuf Abdulla is the most recent South African to be snapped up. The Kings XI Punjab approached him after West Indian seamer Jerome Taylor was injured in an auto accident.
