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.

Posted by binu.emiliya on (February 2, 2013, 20:20 GMT)

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

Posted by usernames on (February 2, 2013, 20:11 GMT)

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.

Posted by JG2704 on (February 2, 2013, 20:00 GMT)

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.

Posted by bijuphilip on (February 2, 2013, 18:09 GMT)

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.

Posted by usernames on (February 2, 2013, 18:06 GMT)

For RCB, Abhinav Mukund, Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Pujara, DeVilliers, Mayank Agarwal, Glenn Maxwell, KP Appanna, Harshal, Vinay, James Faulkner/Rampaul/Philander. This will be a very good first XI; RCB need a good fast bowler from outside and I think Faulkner fits the bill very well.

Posted by bijuphilip on (February 2, 2013, 18:05 GMT)

i personally like to watch pakisthan players playing in IPL, First of all they are chapion players,second of all it's good for IPl. If we would have involved them they never think of starting their league. third out side cricket tension should be delt outside. this 21st century we can't fight for some ice cold land in cargil area. we need to have some mutual agreement and deal the terrist together.

Posted by usernames on (February 2, 2013, 17:54 GMT)

Since I support CSK, I think this will be a very good line up for them -- Faf, Hussey, Raina, Badri, Dhoni, Bravo, Jadeja, Ashwin, RP Singh, Nannes and Jakati. Their squad looks to be fairly settled apart from the obvious weak fast bowling, especially the fact that they have no Indian fast bowlers! Signing up Nannes, RP and perhaps even Pankaj Singh can help rectify that and it will, hopefully, cost them less than a million. They have the right spinners, the right Indian allrounder and a very decent batting line up though I feel the signing of someone like Thisara Perera will not only give them a bit more audience but also the right firepower (he can bowl and bat, and he can hit a long way). I just wish they had a bit more depth in the middle order as far as Indian batsmen are concerned -- someone like Robin Bisht, or Pujara perhaps, could have been an excellent purchase. I think RCB, on the whole, has a lot of potential but VERY poor management.

Posted by FOTO on (February 2, 2013, 17:22 GMT)

Nasir Hossain from BD should play

Posted by vigneshvinu on (February 2, 2013, 17:14 GMT)

CSK has added a useful players like abarajith and shankar,they will be looking for rampaul and r.p.singh.whereas RCB and sun risers will be looking for all rounders.especially sun risers need good hard hitting opener like finch,ryder,maxwell and sammy will be hav good competitio.only kkr looks a very balanced side covering every department.csk just need a good local fast bowler.

Posted by StevieS on (February 2, 2013, 17:05 GMT)

Jesse Ryder will be the buy of the tournament.

Posted by StarHawk on (February 2, 2013, 16:29 GMT)

Teams want to keep their core the same..so they should be allowed to retain as many players as they want, not just 4. If they don't want to retain the players, they should be in a free agency pool, from where the franchises can offer them contract and the player should be allowed to choose whichever team he wants to play for.

Posted by Nerav on (February 2, 2013, 16:08 GMT)

Royal Challengers Bangalore the team for me they need one more fast bowler. Not that it matters, with Chris Gayle and target it within reach.

Posted by srinideva on (February 2, 2013, 14:59 GMT)

Oh boys, look at the team at first in the article. It will dominate the IPL man. Way 2 go CSK. Good fast bowler is the only weak link. I hope they will rectify it tomorrow.. @JBSA, good comment on Avengers..never gonna happen..

Posted by Bruisers on (February 2, 2013, 14:54 GMT)

Rishi Dhawan and Jalaj Saxena are brilliant signings by the Mumbai Indians. Both of them deserve to play for India right now. They are that much talented.

Posted by   on (February 2, 2013, 14:31 GMT)

@half_blood-prince .... Robin Uthappa, Luke Wright/Tamim Iqbal, Marlon Samuels, YUVI(c), Angelo Mathews, Steven Smith/Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Bhuvi Kumar, Murali Karthik, Rahul Sharma/Murtaza Ali, Ashok Dinda/Ishwar Pandey

SUBS : Ashish Nehra, Mithun Manhas, Shrikant Wagh,Alfonso Thomas, Wayne Parnell,T Suman

I hope this is the best team to win IPL2013 if they select the combination which i have mentioned here.. I wish Yuvi to read this comment!!!!!!

Posted by   on (February 2, 2013, 14:27 GMT)

Sunrisers should look for Thisara Perara and Abhishek Nayar to add balance to their side. At-least for next IPL, IPL committee should get rid of player retention policy, that gives fair chance of bid for all the franchisees. Retention policy is just making bigger teams like CSK,MI strong on paper.

Posted by saifur.raffael on (February 2, 2013, 14:26 GMT)

Just shame of the Bangladeshi guys who are crying for BD players not taking part in the auction. Playing IPL is just for earning money and nothing else. They are already playing the BPL and getting some good amounts and the BPL is quite lengthy too, they are also getting that experience of international stars flavour. I would rather want them to play the BBL or Newzealand leagues or The County coz these will benefit them playing in the faster & bouncy pitches.

Posted by StoneRosesRam on (February 2, 2013, 13:31 GMT)

@iam_abir12 sorry but the only two Bangladeshis who are good enough to play in the IPL or any quality league are Shakib and Tamim Iqbal, did you see how awful Bangladesh have been in the WT20 over the past few years?

Posted by rosh280 on (February 2, 2013, 12:55 GMT)

It is great to see lot of young players being selected for New ipl. I really feel this list is incomplete. They have missed out really lot of talented players like i d singh of jammu, rahul dewan, sarul kanwar, murtuja vohra, kaustubh pawar, pankaj singh, jagadish of kerala, ravikant sinha and many more. lot of money disbursed but it should be much more entertaining. we hope this 20-20 to change to 35-35 format game then we could enjoy match. corporators are giving much money to these young talents but they should play to their potential.

Posted by iamabir12 on (February 2, 2013, 12:49 GMT)

missing some bangladeshi players in the list.....players like nasir hossain,shohag gazi....are of international calivar.....well if they were from australia or south africa then the story could have been completely different....

Posted by QingdaoXI on (February 2, 2013, 12:30 GMT)

Sunrisers hyderabad would have released Sangakkara, he is not useful in t-20, and when you appoint him as captain you waste one place for foreigner and cant rotate the players. I hope this year they appoint Indian captain may Shikar Dhawan, which will give more balance fo the team. Mumbai very good you bag two quality upcoming allrounders from domestic circuit. Happy for Aparjith as Chennai provide him Platform, Banglore you too did good by adding especially Abhinav Mukund and Sandip Warrier. Re-signeing of Smith and Iqbal and picking up young quick Ishwar Pandey before Auction makes Pune Strong outfit. As usually Delhi and Kolkatta look strong wiith good signing last years while KXIP and RR need to add lot of quality players to look the squad strong.

Posted by JBSA on (February 2, 2013, 12:21 GMT)

Signing of Aparajith to CSK can make up to build up their weak link of Indian middle order batting and also an additional spin bowling. With Ashwin, Jadeja, Raina and Aparajith, CSK should be eyeing for an Indian Pacer and a Foreign Southpaw Express Pacer having released Douggie might be because of his aggressive behaviour. Apart from CSK two teams looks more settled are DD and KKR. Some intelligent buyings PWI, they might be as competent. MI looks star studded and definitely going to fail for the same. Avengers happen only in the movies. They get the best players in the market not the apt players for the team needs. Hope Kumble's inclusion can bring a fresh change.

Posted by half_blood-prince on (February 2, 2013, 11:53 GMT)

max salary cap is needed to be increased upto $15mn or $20mn..and pune warriers?after havin spent almost 9mn they dont have an average team.
