BANGALORE, India (CMC) –
West Indies captain Darren Sammy was the only Caribbean player sold in the 2015 Indian Premier League auction on Monday.

A powerful lower order batsman and steady medium pacer, Sammy was snapped up by Royal Challengers Bangalore for US$466 000.

The 31-year-old was released by Sunriders Hyderabad following the 2014 campaign.

Several West Indies players went unsold including Test captain Denesh Ramdin, Marlon Samuels, Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Rampaul, Jonathan Carter, Darren Bravo, Krishmar Santokie, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Barnwell and Kevon Cooper.

Seamers Rampaul, Krishmar Santokie and Cooper were also released from their respective franchises following the 2014 season.

Sammy, however, has seen his Twenty20 stock continue to rise, since his sudden retirement from Test cricket last year.

Over the last year, he has turned out for English County Glamorgan, Titans in the South Africa Ram Slam and Hobart Hurricanes in the Australia Big Bash.
