The IPL is a bore feast. I love cricket but can't find any passion for the IPL.

Posted by Galle.Fort on (February 3, 2013, 6:24 GMT)

Sports are established not 4 divide nations bt 4 unite them. I don't know y Pakistan players not selected 4 IPL. I'm not confident about the Australian players. They do not perform well in T20's. Sri Lanka is the no 1 T20 team. I think their junior players must get more chance in IPL. I really like 2 c IPL matches play in a different country. Because Indian pitches not helping to improve batting capabilities. I think Indian Cricket Board organized this tournament 4 helping Indian young players. Bt Indian team not perform well in T20. Specially they do not perform well in fast pitches. (White washed in England, defeated in CB) Indians still in the top position because they play most of their matches in their own turf. Virat Kohli is the star of Indian cricket in these days. Bt he scored most of runs against Sri Lanka. Without these scores he is nothing. Don't forget next WC will b held in Australia. Otherwise the thing happened in 2007 WC will b repeated.

And I still don't care. The IPL is nothing but another money spinner for the BCCI. Adds nothing to cricket, only takes away from the strength of traditional Indian cricket, takes from the grassroots level of Indian cricket (because who'd want to learn how to be a fast bowler or play real cricket when you can just slog your way to millions of dollars; the only thing anyone in Indian culture cares about) and takes away big name international stars and gets them thinking about big sacks of cash instead of playing real cricket for slightly smaller (but still quite large) sacks of cash.

I think RCB got the fast bolwer tey are looking for that is Sandeep Warrior of Kerala Go Sandeep make us proud....!

For the Sun team, since they are starting out, this season can be used to find a good XI to go for the next season -- they should buy a few players to see what comes out it. They have a decent core: a decent keeper batsman, a decent opener and the world's greatest bowler. Their Indian core is a little weak but there's little they can do about it this time so here's something I'd like to see -- Parthiv, Dhawan, White, Sangakarra, Bisht, Duminy, Nayar, Mishra, VP Singh, Ishant, Steyn. I think an Indian middle order batsman -- like Pujara -- had to be a major buy this season but he's NOT on auction!!!

Posted by usernames on (February 2, 2013, 20:07 GMT)

And since I absolutely love RR, here's my line up for them! Too many perhaps but yet: Ajinkya, Watson, Hodge, Dravid, Prior, Bisht, Binny, Pankaj, Tait, Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan. Since they have a decent enough purse, I think they should go for Prior or any other keeper. Yagnik needs to go. I think, just to get that bit of firepower, they could go for someone like a Moises Henriques. They may also want to go for Quinton De Kock who is a steal at anything less than $150,000 -- he can serve as a backup keeper AND a batsman! And if they need a captain, maybe a Michael Clarke -- he won't offer much as a batsman but is an excellent fielder and a good captain.

I'll be looking at the form of Pune with their Somerset connections and Luke Wright. Even more baffling that Clarke's reserve price is so high after being released after the last IPL. Surely if he was that effective Pune would have kept him

Posted by JG2704 on (February 2, 2013, 19:57 GMT)

@Cpt.Meanster on (February 02 2013, 18:28 PM GMT) Agreed. Alf Thomas was warming the bench most of the time when Somerset (his English side) had a huge injury crisis. Also I wonder why KKR retained Morgan. He didn't play a single match last season

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (February 2, 2013, 18:28 GMT)

Personally, I don't want to see unnecessary players signed up and simply warming the bench; it makes ZERO sense. In fact, most of the teams are perfect as they are with a few exceptions. Kings XI and Sun Risers Hyderabad are easily the weakest teams of the league. I hope they add some muscle to their framework. CSK need a second all rounder and RCB need a decent fast bowler from overseas cause their main problem has been their bowling.

prasanth parameswaran one of the great talent played for cochi two years before,mahela and sewang actually fouund out his talent. I don't know where he is going to play this time. he is better than ashok dinda,irsanth,vinay kumar and balaji.
