Star left-arm spinner Monty Panesar was among the 12 English players who failed to make the revised auction list for the Indian Premier League's second season.
Nineteen English players had made the initial list of 111 but only seven of them, including star cricketers Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff, have managed to make the cut in the final list of 43.
According to a report in leading daily the 'Daily Telegraph', Panesar alongwith pacer Steve Harmison and batsman Ian Bell were ignored as none of the nine franchises was ready to put money on them.
List of England players who made the revised list: Andrew Flintoff ($ 950,000), Kevin Pietersen ($ 1,350,000), Luke Wright ($ 150,000), Owais Shah ($ 150,000), Paul Collingwood ($ 250,000), Ravi Bopara ($ 150,000), Samit Patel ($ 100,000).
