England batsman Owais Shah will move franchises to play for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
Middlesex star Shah was an unused member of the Delhi Daredevils squad in last year's tournament but later appeared for the team in the Champions League Twenty20 event.
Shah's switch was one of just three to occur in the transfer window created to allow trading between teams ahead of the next IPL auction, which is scheduled for January 19.
After being signed by Daredevils for £185,000 at auction last year, Shah moves to the Knight Riders along with Indian batsman Manoj Tiwary.
Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques, who featured for New South Wales in the Champions League, will make the reverse switch from Kolkata to Delhi.
A total of 96 players have registered for the 2010 IPL auction, including Usman Afzaal, Tim Bresnan, James Foster, Anthony McGrath, Eoin Morgan, Monty Panesar, Adil Rashid and Jonathan Trott.
Players are due to be notified of whether they have been chosen for inclusion in the auction following a meeting of the eight franchises.
