Hyderabad: Top Indian shuttlers P V Sindhu and Saina Nehwal were retained by their respective franchises at the players auction of the Premier Badminton League (PBL) here today.
 
Each retained player gets a 25 per cent hike in his/her salary from last year, while players who are bought by using the 'Right-To-Match' card only get a 10 per cent increase from the last year's selling price.
 
So, defending champions Chennai Smashers retained Olympic silver medallist Sindhu for Rs 48.75 lakhs. The 22-year-old, who recently won a silver at the World Championship at Glasgow and clinched the Korea Super Series, had fetched Rs 39 lakhs during the last auction.
 
Saina, who had returned with a bronze medal from Glasgow, was retained for Rs 41,25,000. She was retained by Awadhe Warriors for the base price of Rs 33 lakhs last season.

Among others, doubles players -- India's Satwik Sairaj, Korea's Lee Young Dae and Russia's Vladimir Ivanov -- were all retained by their old teams and were not be part of the auction.
 
According to the rules, old teams can retain one player and the franchise can use one right to match, while new teams can use one right to match for players who are making their debut in PBL.
 
There will be 11 players in each franchise with a maximum of five foreign players and minimum of three women players and each team need to spend minimum of Rs. 2.12 crore.
 
The players auction started after more than two hours delay and the first player to go under the hammer was the women's world no. 1 Tai Tzu Ying, one of the nine icon players, who was bought by Ahmedabad Smash Masters for Rs 52 lakhs.
 
Rio Olympics gold medallist Carolina Marin from Spain was bought by Hyderabad Hunters, the team she played last season, for a base price of Rs 50 lakhs.
