The Hoeri Kwaggo Bulls bought wicketkeeper-batsman Ridaa Isaacs during last week’s player auction for the 2022 Cape Premier League.

The Bulls paid 3.3 million CPL dollars – the tournament’s fictional currency – for Isaacs. They effectively outbid the Bo-Kaap Phantoms and Devil’s Peak Dragons.

Isaacs’ price was the fourth-highest at the auction. The highest was also paid by the Bulls, who recruited Tygerberg Cricket Club seamer Reeve Cyster for a record 4.6 million.

The Bulls also purchased Western Province Cricket Club seamer Alexander Draai, who cost 50,000.
