Saarah Smith cricketSaarah Smith.

Batters Saarah Smith and Yasmeen Khan were the Peninsula Patriots’ most expensive purchases during the recent Women’s Cape Premier League player auction.

The Patriots purchased Smith and Khan for 1.6 million CPL dollars – the tournament’s fictional currency – each. This amounted to more than half the Patriots’ budget of six million.

Smith and Khan have been capped by South Africa and Namibia, respectively, in international cricket.

The Patriots had acquired quartet Gemeez Adams, Reehana Khan, Jae-Leigh Filander and Jada Jacobs prior to the auction.

The Cape Premier League has existed as a men’s tournament since 2019. The inaugural women’s CPL is scheduled to start in late September 2023.
