Bengaluru: Spinner Rashid Khan and all-rounder Mohammed Nabi were on Monday bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad, making them the first Afghanistan cricketers to be bought by an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise.

While Rashid was bought for a whopping Rs 4 crore, Nabi went for Rs 30 lakh.

Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai, however, joined the likes of India's Ishant Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Pragyan Ozha, South African Imran Tahir, West Indians Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels, to remain unsold.
