Kent stars Darren Stevens and Azhar Mahmood have been snapped-up by sides in the auction ahead of next year's Bangladesh Premier League.
The all-rounders enjoyed success as teammates in the 2012 competition, which they won with the Dhaka Gladiators, however they will go their separate ways when the new five-week season begins on January 18.
Stevens, 35, was sold back to the Gladiators for $30,000 - $5,000 more than last year - where he will play alongside countrymen Luke Wright and Owais Shah.
Stevens, pictured, will also link-up with his former Kent teammate Lasath Malinga and the pace-man's Sri Lankan teammate Tillakaratne Dilshan.
Mahmood, 37, was bought by the Barisal Burners for a whopping $150,000 - eighth-highest in the league - where he will play alongside England's Phil Mustard and Kabir Ali, Australia's Brad Hodge and Pakistan's Umar Gul.
Kent's former West Indies batsman Brendan Nash was also included in the auction but went unsold.
Stevens is under contract at the St Lawrence Ground for the next two seasons while the club retain a T20 option on Mahmood, should he opt to play in England next summer.
