    What is clear is that Australians are still valued. This highlights that they still have good players, just that the Australian national selectors, coach and administrative body, are not doing their jobs properly in selecting and nurturing them and we need a complete overhaul of the administrative - not the player - side of Australian cricket. Contrary to what Ponting says, Australian domestic cricket clearly is still producing amazing talent. It is just that the teams selected are very rarely indicative of that talent.

  • sandeshrai on January 11, 2011, 0:19 GMT

    RCB did get their strategy wrong. The fact that they did not retain Kallis, Uthappa and Steyn is beyond comprehension. It would cost them just $2.8 Million to retain them. These players ended up being bought for a total of $4.4 Million by other franchisees. Also, the fact that they have ignored all local players including Dravid, will cost them some serious fan following.

  • on January 10, 2011, 21:06 GMT

    a player when retained is not just paid 1.8mln,1.3 million,900 thousand and 500 thousand dollars,in all chances they might be paid more.we all know malinga would have costed more for sure,but mumbai listed him as 500,000 dollars.and vijay mallya says that 1.8 million is cut from their purse and they are not paid that much,its between franchise and player,doesnt that mean,mumbai and chennai have advantage of spending more money in the auction,i understand they had only 4.5 million to spend,but they saved a lot in pollard and malinga,pollard would have gome till 2 million for sure..and million close to a million.

    Just to say, Tamim is a hard hitter and considering his age he may even be the next sehwag. He has scored many half C's and C's whether we win or lose. Plus in all the t20 matches that he could have done good in AshraFOOL has lost the runs and gotten the top order out singlehandedly. If ashraful was Pakistani he would struggle to get into the 2nd team but like the selectors are like his no.1 fans out of like 100.

  • on January 10, 2011, 17:24 GMT

    @jaidev_bhavya...Indian players are very marketable in India, that's why they are so expensive. Of course they are not worth that much in an ideal market. Its the same as the English Premier League where the English players are always more expensive because of their nationality alone.

  • on January 10, 2011, 15:37 GMT

    @ jaidev_bhavya - Australian players are selected not because they r better than other.. only because 6 or 8 coaches are Australians.. they are doing a promoting business.. poor luck to players from other countries..

    Player Retention took away a dozen of good players away and reduced options from the Teams, especially the New teams.

    I agree with u all that Paying this much money for players like Irfan & Jadeja is not only a waste but an insult to great players like Dravid & Ganguly.. Those who came first in auction list got a lot of money.. then the range came down.

    I think if the money limit was divided into two - Say 6 million for Indians and 3 millions for Foreign Players, this disparity may not have happened. If not one day should be given for Indian Players auction and the second day for the Foreign Players. And also the number of Players in Auction should be reduced by collecting a choice from every team.

  • jaidev_bhavya on January 10, 2011, 11:56 GMT

    PEOPLE SAY AUSTRALIA IS FINISHED BUT LOOK AT IPL 4 IF AUSTRALIA IS FINISHED THEN WHY PICK AUSTRALIANS , THE ANSWER IS CLEAR THAT AUSTRALIA IS NOT FINISHED AND THEY WILL BOUNCE BACK AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL SEE THAT HOW PONTING AND HIS MEN BOUNCE BACK , EVERYONE IN THIS WORLD GOES THROUGH BAD TIME SO IS AUSTRALIAN TEAM GOING BUT ONLY FOR SOME TIME SEE THEM BOUNCING BACK VERY SOON , AND THE OTHE RTHING HOW CAN YOU WASTE SO MUCH MONEY ON GAUTAM GAMBHIR , SAURABH TIWARY AND IRFAN PATHAN ALL 3 NOT WORTHY OF WHAT THEY ARE BEING PAID I THINK THE FRANCHISES ARE EMOTIONAL WHILE BIDDING FOR INDIAN PLAYERS RATHER THEN USING COMMON SENSE.

  • --.-- on January 10, 2011, 11:12 GMT

    "Why Tamim Iqbal hasn't been picked ?" Yes, it is disappointing for me, too. But I think it has something to do with his unavailability the next year, NOT SURE. But I'm happy that Shakib-al-Hasan has been picked. I like him. Now KKR has become a very strong unit this time. Gambhir, Kallis, Y. Pathan, Haddin, Shakib, Lee... Wow ! Bring it ON. See what happens when 2 quality Indian batsmen come in your team, All of a sudden it starts looking more strong than other teams having only 1 or No quality Indian batsman. Thats' why KKR spent so much money on Gambhir and Pathan, I think. :)

  • --.-- on January 10, 2011, 11:11 GMT

    If I'm a franchisee and I bid for Dilshan and I see that others are also bidding for him, I would certainly stop at some point without going far as I know if I don't get Dilshan I can go for some other foreign batsman as there are plenty of options available. But if I bid for Gambhir or Utthappa or some other QUALITY Indian batsman, I'll certainly try to pick him even @ higher price just because there are NOT many options available as far as good Indian batsmen are concerned and it is mandatory to have at least 7 Indian players in your playing XI. So it's obvious that every franchise wouldn't mind paying high for some Indian players as per requirement of their respective teams. Venu Gopal Rao, a loser, according to me, has been picked for handsome amt. of money just because his competition was with under-19 or uncapped Indian players. I hope, you get my point.

  • --.-- on January 10, 2011, 11:10 GMT

    @ Mahmud...Dilshan's competition was NOT with Utthappa, it was with other overseas players. What Dilshan would do, the same would be done by Warner, Finch, Devilliers, Kallis, McCullum, Sangakkara, Mahela, Ross Taylor, Cameron White, Hussey, Greame Smith and the list goes on... whereas what Robin Utthappa would do, not other Indian batsmen (low quality?) would be able to do who were in the auction list other than Yuvraj, Gambhir, Rohit, Saurabh and Pathan. That's why he got so much money.

  • --.-- on January 10, 2011, 11:09 GMT

    It seems some of the guys here like Mahmud Hossain haven't understood the strategy behind picking the players yet. Some general questions:"WHY SO MUCH MONEY WAS SPENT ON Robin Utthappa, Rohit Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary and Gambhir but NOT on some of the foreign players?" It's because an IPL team consists of 7 Indian players and only 4 foreign players. So it is mandatory to have GOOD QUALITY Indian batsmen in your team which will win you matches. Since Sachin, Sehwag, Raina, Vijay & Dhoni have already been retained by their respective teams so it left other franchises with no option but to go madly behind other quality Indian batsmen and that's why R. Sharma, Gambhir, Yuvraj, S. Tiwary, Y. Pathan, I. Pathan and R. Utthappa went for high prices. And this time 2 more teams have been added, so the competition was obviously high. "Why Gayle and some of the England players haven't been picked ?" It's because of the uncertainty over their availability. That's why only 1 team did bid for D. Bravo

  • on January 10, 2011, 10:33 GMT

    These Auctions are like gambling ... Actual bidding these franchisees think tank put forth on the table under the hammer is far from what they call as well prepared strategies... Under the hammer when the price call outs happen - many of them have goofed up... No member of the think tank will agree - but all of them know - they have bought player a) whom they may not hv wanted b) have paid much more than they actually wanted c) because of those 2 reasons ( a & b) they were forced to either leave out some player they wanted or could not afford those players. For sure Gambhir / Uttapa / Pathans would not hv fetched millions for them selves - if the their names were put up on the second day of the auction ... as the franchisees would have spent a lot of money or would hv bought many players already . All these so called think tank know it pretty well .... no body will dare to sepak out that truth ... they will be kicked out.... ITS PURE GAMBLING - THE GUYS WHO DID IT - KNOW IT

  • shrihari.a on January 10, 2011, 9:38 GMT

    I am tired of seeing a lot of Bangladeshi fans lamenting for Tamim Iqbal. I dont get the point at all.. Guys he might be great in Bangladesh.. but his numbers are not near international standards. Averages 13.6 in T20I with a strikerate of 93 Averages 21 with a strike rate of 109 in all T20s played. He averages only 29 in ODIs. All these numbers are below par.. On the other hand Rohit Sharma averages 35.3 with a very healthy strike rate of 128+

  • on January 10, 2011, 7:13 GMT

    CSK has a few Tamils already - Ashwin, Vijay and Badrinath and they could have tried to get Balaji and Dinesh Karthik too. And the outsiders like Dhoni and Raina seem to fit easily in. This is the template the other teams should have followed. Instead of randomly hiring guns, they should have looked to take the local boys as the first priority. Without a cultivated team culture and back stories, IPL could wither off in a few years.

  • on January 10, 2011, 7:08 GMT

    Not bidding for Dada is Surprising,and the news comes from SRK that no KKR without Dada....Its unfair all after media hype and Gangulys home support now they want Dada as its integral part of KKR....Iam disappointed and feel for Dada,And I think Dada must not accept any offer from KKR.They must have retained him well before auction...Dada you are the greates love to you!!!let them try without you and see the consequences I was supporting KKR when yo were in now I am not interestes and feel they wont get anywhere....

    38 Australian players in the IPL. More than any other team (except India). Go the AUSSIES!

  • Rukky on January 10, 2011, 4:48 GMT

    i think whatever the decision has been made from the franchises is as per their demands of the players who they believe that they can make their side win the IPL4. They all did according to their needs and also according to their experts. They must know what to do and what not to do. Because all franchises are a big business players. Its not about their home team, its all about to win the matches and to win the IPL4. This is not a competition of the teams (like Chennai to mumbai or Rajanthan to Bangalore)..this is a competition of Mr. Mallaya to MR.Ambani...and so on.....its all about to get money and to give money.....

  • skumar77 on January 10, 2011, 4:32 GMT

    The owners / managers are under the impression that an Indian player who can be a liability in a game (like Munaf or Ravindra Jadeja) is better than a foreign player - what explains 700k for Munaf and 950k for Jadeja? Kochi has definitely lost the plot early.

    Getting Gayle in the re-auction would have been good for any team - he would have been perked up to prove a point - witness his performance yesterday. If there were questions about his availability for IPL4, there is IPL5 where his base price is locked in and teams do not have to pay him when he is not available anyway.

    Christian Dale would have to do a lot to earn the 900k - I guess the Aussie managers have again made fools of the Indian owners.

  • on January 9, 2011, 16:33 GMT

    its really unfortunate to have DADA unsold..... BCCI have no right to do such shameless thing..

  • on January 9, 2011, 16:27 GMT

    India players got more money coz only 4 foreigners are allowed... and if any team has 4 good foreigners and 2-3 world class indian player....who can stop that team....u guys are thinking about some good forigner player missing...but its Indian Premier League... so more good indian means more chance of winning... So KKR had used some brains this time.. last time SRK used emotions...and eveerybody knows what he got...u r the guys who blamed Ganguly...so why u want him... at least no body will speak bad about when playing...

    I think CSK have made a real killing this auction; their side looks pretty formidable. Feel bad for RR and KXIP ending up with under 10 players each.

    IPL auction are going on. some of d gems of modern day cricket have not been picked by d teams.but some weird players (mainly indian), got sold at crazy high prices. it's IPL, but it doesn't mean that guys like Tamim Iqbal (perfect modern d...ay player and a dashing opening batsman), Sourav Ganguly (glory of kolkata former indian captain, dont need introduce much), Chris Gayle (who infact just now scored 32 runs in one over in d australian t20 big bash!!!), Brian Lara (he doesn't need any introduction), Herschelle Gibbs (controversial yet effective), Mark Boucher (presently world's best wicket keeper) have no values. this is a complete insult in d faces of passionate cricketers and cricket lovers.

    Dada not sold suprising surprising... You e to remember previous seasons teams like DD, KXIP are not up to the mark due to captaincy.... Dada 494 in 14 matches 4th leading run scorer in IPL3... See money is not a matter to dada... he may sell for little amount and his performances in IPL 4 will gonna rock... which KKR player contributed in IPL 4 consistently... Most of KKR win are came only by Dada... Many time it was said its all over to dada.. do you remember his come back 2hundred against pakistan.. that year leading run scorer for India..

    He ll be back and gonna rock in IPL 4...

  • jk.jeetukakwani on January 9, 2011, 4:49 GMT

    the most over sold player is sorabh tiwari for 1.6 millions $. its really unbelievible. he can hit sixes only on spinners. he doesnt have the technique to handle quality pace bowling. RCB made a huge mistake.another over sold player is irfan pathan.he is a gentle medium pacer n can be hit out of the ground by any gud quality slogger and not a very reliable batsman. 1.9 millions $ price is almost double den what he is worth. as far as under sold players r concerned brendon mcCullum is shockingly unfortunate. how can a player of such a superb talent b worthy of only 4.75 lakhs $. kochi team is absolute lucky to get him in such a low price. another under sold player i guess is eoin morgan of england. KKR took him for just 3.5 lakhs $. he is a genuine match winner n extremely talented worth almost 1 million $.overall first day of auction was very interesting n all frenchisers has become quiet smarter den before. really IPL has become a HUGE brand in such a small time.well done BCCI

  • on January 9, 2011, 4:37 GMT

    All the franchise have money but little cricketing mind... Vry disappointing.... only CHENNAI, MUMBAI and DECCAN are making a good team till now.... Lets see what goes today...

  • benjer on January 9, 2011, 4:22 GMT

    This time KKR is a blanced team & hope they will win IPL of 2011.But surpirsely Saurab Ganguly is not in the team.

  • on January 9, 2011, 3:19 GMT

    The great moves of the IPL auction came from CSK and Mumbai the two finalists. By retaining four of their players. Chennai got MSD,Raina, Vijay and Morkel for 4.5 million i am sure if they had been auctioned they would have gone for 7 million +. Chennai already have a complete team.

    1)Murali Vijay, 2)Michael Hussey, 3)Suresh Raina, 4)Dhoni, 5)Albie Morkel, 6)Badrinath, 7)Aniruda Srikanth, 8)Shadab Jakati, 9)R.Ashwin, 10)Dougie Bollinger, 11)A foriegn Quickie.

    Now all they would have to do with their remaining purse would be to pick a couple of hard hitting opening batsmen to be replacement for Mike hussey and a couple of quick bowlers like Jerome taylor to fill in 11th bowler slot.

    They also have dwayne bravo. this is easily the best complete alround team.

  • on January 9, 2011, 3:08 GMT

    well well well Its really a surprising IPL auction. Player like Ganguly,Gayle,Lara,Gibs,Tamim etc remain unsold! incredible.....I really want to know the psychology of the franchises. Hopefully somebody buy Tamim today. One thing i can tell that Tamim Iqbal will not disappoint his respective franchise if anybody buy him.

  • on January 9, 2011, 2:41 GMT

    Nice observation bks123..hope that we get some good bowlers today.....and I too am hoping for Dada to join MI...will be sweet to see MI beating Kolkata at eden gardens with the crowd cheering MI and booing for KKR,lol

  • titansnights on January 9, 2011, 1:43 GMT

    If anyone have bought Tamim for his base price, it would have been the Steal of the auction.....Such an amazing batsman and Rajasthan is running out of cricket brains...could have got both Yousuf Pathan and Botha for the combined price of 1.4mn and they spent 9.5 for Botha alone....madness

  • titansnights on January 9, 2011, 1:37 GMT

    Where is Hashim Amla? Is he not chosing to play because of the alcohol sponsorship at the IPL? I am aware a few of the teams are sponsored by ALcohol brands! Maybe thats his reasoning.The number 1 batsman in the world in ODI's not featuring, dont you think its something more than meets the eye? Every South African Proteas player and non-Proteas players are in the Auction list but no AMLA? Can someone please clarify this???

  • coatsie89 on January 8, 2011, 23:22 GMT

    Pune are going to walk into their first IPL and take the title. It's about time Yuvraj turned up to an IPL and this is going to be it. Bargain of the auction is Eoin Morgan. Biggest waste of money so far Rohit Sharma. Are the Mumbai Indians crazy? worth $500,000 at best.

  • on January 8, 2011, 23:16 GMT

    Sure...MI played the smartest here. How about Sachin and Lara opening for MI. Personally, I would love to see that combo more than Sachin n Sourav. Think about the day, when these two are facing Steyn or Warne or Murali!!!! UFF....I can't just Imagine!!!

  • bks123 on January 8, 2011, 22:47 GMT

    MI/Sachin is smart...They have pollard...so no need of yuvi, yusuf or uthappa...got a consistant performer rohit...replaced bravo with may be a little more intimidating symmonds....they will get raydu for sure as wicket keeper...so they have a very good middle order...Now they need a left hander as opening batsman...Mark my words...its going to be dada...sachin-dada opening pair...definitely not as intimidating as sehwag-werner...but will be consistant....and with the strong/intimidating middle order it will rock...In bowling malinga and bhajji are there...then there are pollard and symmo...They definitely need a lefty pacer...may be a foreigner...as at the moment nehra and zaheer are already sold out...lets see who is that lucky guy...

  • cricketfullness on January 8, 2011, 20:04 GMT

    Biggest mistakes so far-Rajastan retaining warne and watson instead of yousuf. They could have spent 1.8 for yousuf and he went for 2.1 and could have gotten watson for a mill and warne for less than a mill and they got 1.3 and 1.8 respectively.KKR bought gambhir for 2.5 mill!!No player is worth that much,just like they got ponting and gayle last time,they just pay for names.Kochi Shouldn't have spent 1.5 mill for mahela, he is worth as much as sanga.Kochi let the world knew he is going to be their captain and the other teams just raised his price.Instead they should have went after vettori as captain,and allrounder,avoid powar and should have went after Uthappa for 2.2.He is mallu,makes noise in the stadium,sell tickets and avoided parthiv patel.But Kochi's strategy is somewhat good they went after cheap indian players.But jadeja is worth 0.Good pick up of sreesanth and RP.Now they need some good bats.Must go after tirumal suman and some Aussie and SA bats.Also Superfast kiwi milne

  • waterboy87 on January 8, 2011, 19:54 GMT

    Lasith Malinga's contract is 500,000??that's absurd..He's the best t20 bowler in the world..the retention salary is appalling.He would have definitely got a better contract had he been in the auction..

  • AverageJoe2 on January 8, 2011, 18:52 GMT

    I believe that the teams that have retained their valuable players will be at a great advantage. This will avail a solid and proven foundation for the teams on which to build. I also feel that Indian superstar players (say top 20 ranked) should play for the area franchise in which they were born as this will build fan and player loyalty and stop the IPL from becoming a financial venture for the mega rich. PS my Yuvraj shirt is on ebay ;-)

  • cricketisagame on January 8, 2011, 17:44 GMT

    All the franchies almost picked up the right combinations. Some of them appears to be lost their plot when bidding for too many overseas players who will sit in the bench. Only 4 overseas players can play in a game and RCB made sense it that thought they didn't puch very hard for allrounders. AB, Dilshan, Vettori and Nannes are the only 4 overseas players they have and we know they are all great asset in a T20 game. They do have good Indians in Kohli, S. Tiwari and Zak though we have not seen Pujare in action in a T20 game. Have to wait and see who will be their next three in the playing eleven... I dont think they will invest in overseas players anymore just to keep them in the bench.

  • on January 8, 2011, 17:36 GMT

  • on January 8, 2011, 17:36 GMT

It's interesting to see how bhajji and symo play together.. By the way u can see youngsters had dominate this bid and old guns were rejected (ex:- Nayyar going for plenty while Dada was unsold) Looking forward to watch a blasting IPL 4 !!!!!!!!

    Can't quite work out the logic behind the prices. Don't seem to be entirely based on ability. For instance - Doug Bollinger $700k and KP $650k!!!! Did the owners of the franchises not watch the Ashes? Also do you get three times as much if you are Indian? Only explanation I can think of to explain Pujara, Jadeja, Ashwin, Nayar bids.

  • yoohoo on January 8, 2011, 17:08 GMT

    Many comments here about the retained players getting only 1.8m and 1.3m. That is NOT true. $1.8m is deducted from the purse for the FIRST retained player, but the amount actually given to him is an undisclosed amount decided between the franchise and the player. (So for example Sachin, Dhone and Warne might actually be getting more than $3m).

    Similarly, for the SECOND retained player it is $1.3m, for the THIRD it is $900k and for the FOURTH it is $500k. But the actual amounts are undisclosed. Just clarifying for people.

  • on January 8, 2011, 17:07 GMT

    I am wondering whether anybody on the Kochi table know anything about cricket or maths. They have spent 6.92 mn and have only 2.08 mn left. They have got 4 spinners, 2 seamers, 2 wicket keepers and only 3 batsmen(one of them is VVS whom I wouldn't want anywhere near limited overs cricket although he is a great test batsman) and they can't even field a whole team now as they have only 6 Indians. I only hope that they will make better use of the 2.08 mn left. I also can't understand why RR didn't retain Yousaf Pathan when he would have cost them only 900,000.

  • on January 8, 2011, 17:04 GMT

  • ArnavSingh on January 8, 2011, 15:26 GMT

    Haha, no one buyed chris gayle and sourav ganguly. Gayle would have thought, well may be WICB was offering me reasonable amount of money. Vanity comes before a fall and thats what happend.

  • on January 8, 2011, 15:23 GMT

    Sakib Al Hasan Wid his all-rounder form, i guess More Worthy Than 425,000 & taking Brat lee Was Surprising for KKR. Leaving back Big Hitter Cris Gayle & Tamim Iqbal for unsold & James Anderson.... Were A ShoCK!

    God Bless Kocchi team

  • on January 8, 2011, 14:50 GMT

    In my point of view, Delhi has messed everything which they wouldn't do....by the way other teams have spent almost the same

  • on January 8, 2011, 14:39 GMT

    What in the world got into Kochi to spend 950000 on Ravinder Jadeja? They already had Murali. Kochi has made the worst decisions of the lot. Look at the line-up, apart from Mccullum and Mahela there isn't anyone on that team who could walk into a T20 game on their skills.

    RP was a sensible choice, wouldn't want to see any of Sreesanth's antics messing up the team.

  • on January 8, 2011, 14:37 GMT

    This retention policy was totally unfair. The players of Malinga's caliber went only for 0.5 million.

  • on January 8, 2011, 14:33 GMT

    No Brian Lara ??? Really surprised. Was really looking forward to see the master batsman in action..Really disappointed. At least Chris Gayle should have been there .. he is another match winner and truly exciting 20-20 player.. will miss him too..

  • on January 8, 2011, 14:23 GMT

    I think Chennai did a very good job so far. Their team apeears to be balanced than any other. RCB is the next best one. Keen to see how Deccan chargers utilize their advantage tomorrow. Mumbai, Rajasthan and Delhi need some good pace bowlers. Pune and Delhi need spin bowlers. Where as Kochi need some Indian T20 specialist batsmen.

  • balkee on January 8, 2011, 14:23 GMT

    i m feelin devasted and very sad that one of my fave star SAURAV GANGULY hasn't been chose for ist round auction and I hope that somebody will choose him in tommorow auction!

  • on January 8, 2011, 13:57 GMT

    These valuations are crazy and some obviously do not deserve it. Rohit Sharma's is really flattering as he has always underachieved for all that hype. Some aging and retired stars got good deals based on past success with no guarantee of future performance. IPL is more about the glitter of money and not about any real contribution to the game. The recently concluded Ashes series and India-SA series were a lot more entertaining than IPL.

  • Mr.Dee on January 8, 2011, 13:50 GMT

    Gambhir, Yusuf, Uthappa and Rohit definitely got jackpot!! But this is very unfair with retained player like; Sachin, Sehwag, Malinga, Pollard. I thing they really deserve much more than what they get from their franchise. And best example is Irfan Pathan, who secure 1900000 USD!!! Any comment....?

  • on January 8, 2011, 13:49 GMT

    Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kitten on January 8, 2011, 13:46 GMT

    Shane Warne and Shane Watson are 17 and 18 from the bottom of the list....Warne and Watson were both retained by RR for 1,800,000, and 1,300,000 resp.

  • zoomtodinesh on January 8, 2011, 13:44 GMT

    gambhir sold for more than what sachin is being offered..its really weired

  • KnightRiderX on January 8, 2011, 13:42 GMT

    indians are being unfairly overpaid.... (BTW I'm Indian)

  • Emancipator007 on January 8, 2011, 13:36 GMT

    Shocking!Warne for 1.8 million just because the other top retained players got that much. He was an utter failure in last 2 IPLs as a player. Let's not talk about captaincy in a still topsy-turvy, momentum-driven format as Gambhir and Ganguly would attest to. International captain Smith could still have captained RR in all 3 editions (I know he was injured in 1 edition).With R. Sharma getting $2 million each for 3 editions means finito to any motivation playing for Tests for India. Y Pathan's price is another joke after just 1 yes 1! substantial innings in last IPL and an utter failure at international level after many chances. Irfan does not play or prove himself in current domestic season and bags a million plus contract. Contrast the high-funda, "analytical" quotes given by the franchisee insiders and operations directors in the cricinfo IPL 2011 auction preview and their silly buying decisions at the actual auction.

  • on January 8, 2011, 13:29 GMT

    Surprisingly Rajasthan did not retained Yusuf (would have cost $900K) and Johan botha ($500K). Such poor call from a franchise which surprised everyone with their strategy in first auction :(
