Chamari Athapaththu, the Sri Lanka women's team captain, was considered one of the top players in the Women's Premier League (WPL) auction. But there were no takers for her service as she went unsold.

After no franchises expressed interest in her in the marquee category, she again faced a setback in the accelerated session as the teams fell mute when Mallika Sagar, the auctioneer, announced her name.

It was a surprise that such an explosive batter missed out on a deal in the WPL.

Kim Garth of Australia, too faced a similar fate.

In another surprise, West Indies' Deandra Dottin, who was controversially excluded from the Gujarat Giants' squad ahead of the start of the first season on medical grounds, did not attract any bid as her base price of Rs 50 lakh was deemed too high.

Indian all-rounder Devika Vaidya and England's Tammy Beaumont were among the other big names who missed out on a deal.
