    RCB shd sign either d hussey or a mahmood,and DD shd go with k abbot, v philander, k oberion

  • POSTED BY on | April 29, 2014, 18:47 GMT

    RCB have already made a call on Rossaouw, an U-19 Lefthanded bat to replace maddinson, Mumbai have got Simmons instead of Saxena. Eyes on CSK and DD...CSK might not need any player at all! But DD definitely needs a cover for CoulterNile, has to be between Nannes/Bollinger/Philander/Lee/Mclaren/Pattinson/Tahir

  • POSTED BY D-Coach on | April 29, 2014, 9:09 GMT

    @UMASHANKARCOOL A.Mohammed is Good option for RCB. He can replace neither C.Gayle or A.Morkel based on availability / form. Also he is more experienced and a cool customer at crunch situation that is more essential to RCB now.

  • POSTED BY D-Coach on | April 29, 2014, 8:58 GMT

    @Sharath Mammen Well said Mate. Rusty will be an excellent option for DD and the deadly verity. All the Best DD.

    @Zahir Aslam Good suggestion for Chennai. Wright or Philander or Mc Laren would be ideal as concern with Faf form CSK may not persist with him for long. Believe he will be back to form in India. If not, CSK needs a player to play in middle order / lower middle order with hard hitting.

    CSK in Batting Order 1. B.McCullam,2. D.Smith,3. S.Raina,4. (i)M.Manhas / (ii)B.Aparajith,5. R.Jadeja,6. MS.Dhoni7. (i)L.Write / (ii)R.Mc Laren / (iii)V.Philender (Based on form),8. R.Ashwin,9. I.Pandey,10. M.Sharma,11. S.Badree

    R.Jadeja can be tried to bat ahead of MS.Dhoni with freedom since now a days caption ship caught up his mind with responsibility. This leads to some incomplete shots. IPL 2014 yet to test the CSK middle order as the openers and bolwers played exceptionally well. In reality CSK is a team which does not stick to one order and used to shuffle things based on situation.

  • POSTED BY Manikkaraj on | April 29, 2014, 7:39 GMT

    Samuels is the best option for CSK.. He can be a good replacement for Faf, who is not doing good job in the middle order. Also Samuels will bowl death overs.. CSK... Go with Samuels....

  • POSTED BY android_user on | April 29, 2014, 6:56 GMT

    csk needs a powerful fast bowler who can bowl well in the death overs and he should be able to produce some hard hits with bat...so i think vernon philander will be the best option...he can bowl at good pace and bat after jaddu n before aswin..the playing xi like: mac.smith raina.msd.faf.manhas.jaddu.philander.aswin.mohit.iswar

    Cameron White is a good buy!

  • POSTED BY Mohammed.Abdullah on | April 28, 2014, 14:05 GMT

    From my view any of them can chose any of these players Jos butler, Craig Kieswetter, Kusal perera , steven finn , stuart broad, tim bresnan, Alex hales, luke wright, Ryan Mclaren and Myburgh . Do you guys agree for these players.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 12:50 GMT

    CSK dont need any spinners or pure batsmen. A fast bowling all rounder gives us options in case Hilfy or Faf need to be replaced. Wright or Philander or Mc Laren would be ideal. If however we need an quicky - then Kemar Roach, Bret Lee it has to be. Radical choices : Jesse Ryder, RP Singh, Marlon Samuels !!

  • POSTED BY vikumsd007 on | April 28, 2014, 12:32 GMT

    CSK - Theron,McLaren and McClenaghan could be good buys, Theron and McClenaghan as a back up for Hilfenhaus and Praveen Kumar could be a very good buy as he is an Indian Pacer.Brett Lee though he is over aged he is experienced and could be a great 1 year option.Or Pankaj Singh could also be good as he is a work horse and Nehra won't be picked any more so Pankaj Singh could be a good replacement for Ishwar or Mohit. RCB-Should go for Badrinath as they lack someone who can steady the ship. DD - Should go for an allot under like McLaren or Mahmood or even van dee Merwe

  • POSTED BY aatif456 on | April 28, 2014, 11:56 GMT

    would love to see Myburgh playing or big bash starrer simmons. any one out of pattinson,thomas,bird,tait can be a good buy for dd..csk can pick wright. if rcb goes with ryder or hales What kind of batting they will have is quite hard to imagine.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 11:35 GMT

    If Peterson and Delhi are smart they should invest in Juan 'Rusty' Theron, he can bowl at the start of an innings and can bowl efficiently at the end of the innings (similar to Coulter-Nile). Has bowled well for other franchises and can be a useful batsman. He could also bowl in tandem with Wayne Parnell as they have played in same teams throughout their respected careers. (Has played a blinder of an innings with Parnell against the Aussies in a T20).

    One common factor throughout is that 'Delhi Daredevils' since the inaugural IPL have always had a strong batting lineup,the effectiveness of this lineup all depends on how the coach sees their potential to win games at ease.

    Then again Chennai and Bangalore would benefit from having Juan Theron play for them, but the connection with Parnell and Duminy at Delhi stands out for me.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 11:08 GMT

    RCB can pick one among alex hales, cameron white or martin guptill

    CSK can go for azhar mahmood or bollinger

    DD must pick IMRAN TAHIR..........

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 10:46 GMT

    IMran Tahir would be the best choice for DD as they already have enough of seamers. After an impressive world t20 Tahir could be a good choice

  • POSTED BY D-Coach on | April 28, 2014, 10:44 GMT

    I don't understand bringing all bang bang players into RCB. They need someone like Badrinath who can calm and stabilize batting environment. They can do wonders if the selected players can show little form and commonsense. All the b3st RCB.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 10:42 GMT

    Delhi must buy as he can be a useful wicket taker with the new ball.Eventhough he has a high risk of getting injured he can be useful for Delhi.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 10:35 GMT

    CSK could go for Azhar Mahmood.Eventhough his age is high he could be useful in both batting & bowling.He can be used as a finisher and can be the the lead bowler in the team.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 10:24 GMT

    I would prefer L.Wright or A.Hales for RCB bcoz both are hard-hitting right handers. It is better for Rcb to Choose a right hander as they already have 2 left handers-parthiv & gayle.Wright & Hales are quick scoring batsmen so they can be handy if they open the innings with gayle

  • POSTED BY Hate.ME on | April 28, 2014, 10:05 GMT

    For RCB: They need a opener until Gayle returns. I say why not pick Cameron White who has been in red hot form. Can bat anywhere. Has opened batting in Big Bash League. I wold prefer him over Hales as former has more experience of playing in sub-continent.

    CSK can go for anyone. They have a settled playing XI.

    DD must go for a specialist bowler (pacer or spinner). If it is a pacer then he should be a death over specialist too..someone like Bollinger... or Nannes..

    If they want to strengthen the spin dept. then even Botha is not a bad idea, he can bat as well.

    But it seems options are very less..Quality wise !

    Remember no SL or Eng player will be chosen as they have the ODI series to play for their national team during IPL.

  • POSTED BY SooryaN on | April 28, 2014, 10:03 GMT

    RCB could bought Luke Wright

  • POSTED BY SamWintson92 on | April 28, 2014, 9:47 GMT

    Options of unsold players who can be considered:

    Batsman: Hales, Voges, Guptill, Ryder, White, Russow, Myburgh, D Harris, Klinger, C Simmons, Anamul, Badrinath. All-rounders: Azhar Mahmood, Wright, McDonald, Franklin, VD Merwe, Wiese, McLaren. Pacer: Tait, McClenaghan, J Taylor, Theron, Bollinger, K Mills, Lee, A Thomas, Pattinson, Bird, Behrendroff, Praveen, RP Singh, Kamran Khan. Spinner: Imran Tahir.

    @Cricinfo: Can we have the list of players link who registered for the 2014 auction but were not bought ;)

  • POSTED BY SamWintson92 on | April 28, 2014, 9:30 GMT

    CSK should pick Azhar Mahmood. A hard-hitting batsman & death over specialist like Dwayne Bravo.

    RCB should pick Alex Hales, after his match winning century vs SL in WT20 2014 do I need to say more ? If there's balance problem (as Maddinson went for 50 Lakhs) then Stephen Myburgh, Daniel Harris or Micheal Klinger can be considered.

    DD should pick Imran Tahir, a wicket taking leg spinner who was in terrific form in WT20 2014. DD already has Parnell & Neesham and their spin has Nadeem & Rahul Sharma who's out of the XI currently. So, addition of Tahir will be very handy.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 9:28 GMT

    CSK... If they pick Brett Lee ... they will be unbeatable.... But having lost Coulter Nile DD may go for Brett Lee/ Shaun Tait... They can be deadly

  • POSTED BY UMASHANKARCOOL on | April 28, 2014, 9:26 GMT

    As a true fan of RCB, I feel they should take Azhar Mohammed, though age is the factor and lack of competitive cricket, but he is a good choice as an all-rounder.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 9:17 GMT

    RCB could pick Queensland opener Pomerbach, CSK should pick Moses Henriques and

    DD should go for Josh Hazzelwood

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 9:03 GMT

    With current T20 form and nature of the pitches, I believe Imran Tahir is the first one I would have pick. He can win matches even with low scores to defend.

    If CSK take praveen kumar as replacement then the team almost won the cup. But I think think some problem going on with praveen kumar which is not known and that is why he went unsold even when Nehra's are grabbed for 2 crores.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 6:48 GMT

    Csk can buy marlon Samuel . Can bat in the middle order and bowl 4 tight overs. Clint McKay is another good option. Clever bowler. Not a big fan of dan Christian , messed up sev chances. RP singh available if u want strengthen indian bowling. I think he is injured . Azhar Mohamed is a good choice , but age and not playing much competitive cricket are issues.ryan mclaren ok but he can't match bravo as a genuine all rounder, other teams tried and failed especially MI.

  • POSTED BY Manikkaraj on | April 28, 2014, 6:23 GMT

    CSK should consider Doug Bollinger, who did resonably fine job in the last T20 series. He is a good death over bowler compared with Hilfi...

  • POSTED BY Rishiking on | April 28, 2014, 5:59 GMT

  • POSTED BY maneematters on | April 28, 2014, 5:55 GMT

    Without a doubt in Nadeem and Rahul Sharma I still think Delhi need a spinner who can spin the bowl rather than skidding it through bowlers...Senanayke would be a better option on Indian tracks with his variations and ability to spin..

    CSK should select either Luke Wright or just leave it as they are and hope Bravo will recover quickly and can play in Play-offs. But CSK seriously need to play Baba Aparajith in place of Mithun Manhas and should bat at No.4 thus leaving out Faf and add Sam Badree in the playing 11 or Keep Faf but at No.5 below Dhoni and before Jadeja.

    Csk dont have a quality Indian fast bowler..So they can also go for a good Indian fast bowler like Praveen kumar or RP singh instead of Bravo.And anyone please clarify this doubt-Will Bravo be back for csk next season if they pick any one as a replacement for him or will he go into the auction??

  • POSTED BY Bharadhwaj.s on | April 28, 2014, 5:22 GMT

    Csk should go for a like for like replacement for bravo like Ryan Mclaren,Luke wright or Azhar Mahmood who can bat and also bowl a bit...They have enough spiunners in the their squad.So the must not go for a spin bowling all-rounder.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 3:50 GMT

    CSK doesn't need a replacement, as they seem content with their current playing 11. Delhi certainly need someone who can bowl and bat a bit and good enough in Indian conditions. Bangalore need to explore their options. They have had some decent squads, but haven't been able to perform at times that mattered to them since the first season.

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 3:47 GMT

    teams can only replace players whose price is less than what they paid for the injured players.. Maddinson went for only 50lacs.. Coulter-nile for 4.5cr and bravo retained for 4cr of auction money.. And they can only take players from the list of players who were unsold in the auctio.

    So choices for RCB are very less.. DD and CSK have tons of options!!

  • POSTED BY on | April 28, 2014, 3:46 GMT

    Csk should go for David wiese. He is a very good t20 player .abd dd can go for dougie bollinger and banglore should get alex hales.. Gayle was unsold ,and he came as a replacement for RCB and made a big difference. Alex hales can do the same.

  • POSTED BY shah_nawaj on | April 28, 2014, 3:32 GMT

    Guys guys!!! CSK wont choose SL player because of the all known Sri lankan issue and definetely not badri as they didint want him back.

RCB should go for Hales, tall man who showed that he could even bat on slow and low tracks in both tours of India ans World T20 cup. DD must try for dougie,Nannes,Theron or even the T20 specialist Alfonso Thomas.

  • POSTED BY on | April 27, 2014, 22:25 GMT

    I agree with most people who posted before me,Delhi MUST and WILL go for a fast bowler with quality similar to coulternile coz this attack has consistently leaked runs against all opposition esp at death..Bollinger/Lee/McKay/McCleneghan are the options. CSK might just not call in a replacement at all or Badri/Morris/Azhar. And RCB will again chose a batter knowing them,Guptill/Tammim/Ryder/Hales will be on their minds.

  • POSTED BY on | April 27, 2014, 21:21 GMT

  • POSTED BY on | April 27, 2014, 21:12 GMT

    I think CSK should pick Brett Lee, Yes you heard it right, BRETT LEE. He is still the fittest and nastiest T20 bowler. He could easily replace the unpredictable Hilfy! Or Badri to replace Manhas.

    The other teams can pick some of the SL players. They are good and fresh of T20 victory.

    DD could go for a Bollinger/Mckay or any other good fast bowler who can bowl well at the death. Parnell is doing well for now, but they may want someone more reliable. CSK will probably go for an allrounder just in case. They don't really need a particular type of player, so going for a like for like replacement for Bravo could help. Is Morris injured? RCB will do well to grab an opener. Maybe Hales or even someone like Martin Guptill.

    How do the franchises decide how much to pay the newly acquired players?

    Alex Hales would be a good Maddinson-replacement. He might be expensive, but has a good record in T20s and T20Is. But he is currently only playing 2nd XI cricket in England, so won't be missed by Notts, and is unlikely to play in the ODIs vs Sri Lanka and Scotland. I'd love a young English player like Hales to gain the invaluable experience of playing in the IPL.

    CSK, please get Alex Hales for Bravo. In case Smith, Mac or Faf get injured we need a replacement.

  • POSTED BY Scrop on | April 27, 2014, 14:31 GMT

    Dougie, Ryder, Mckay and D Hussey will be sort after...

    McKay/Bollinger must be a pick for DD; RCB needs a good back up, White is the best options, in case of CSK, they have a settled side, so someone like Badrinath might be picked up !

    RCB should get Azhar Mahmood into their squad. He is a great T20 all rounder, who is effective with ball and bat. Played well for KXIP last year. Wonder why no one bought him!

    How do the franchises decide how much to pay the newly acquired players?

    Alex Hales would be a good Maddinson-replacement. He might be expensive, but has a good record in T20s and T20Is. But he is currently only playing 2nd XI cricket in England, so won't be missed by Notts, and is unlikely to play in the ODIs vs Sri Lanka and Scotland. I'd love a young English player like Hales to gain the invaluable experience of playing in the IPL.

    Herschelle Gibbs,Jacob Oram & Shaun Tait.Replacement of injured players.

    T M Dilshan for Nic Maddinson @ RCB.. Since Dilshan is not selected in Ireland ODIs & already retired from tests, he will be better option

    DD could go for a Bollinger/Mckay or any other good fast bowler who can bowl well at the death. Parnell is doing well for now, but they may want someone more reliable. CSK will probably go for an allrounder just in case. They don't really need a particular type of player, so going for a like for like replacement for Bravo could help. Is Morris injured? RCB will do well to grab an opener. Maybe Hales or even someone like Martin Guptill.

Coulter-Nile, Maddinson ruled out of IPL

Nathan Coulter-Nile, the Delhi Daredevils fast bowler, and Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Nic Maddinson have been ruled of IPL 2014 with injury. The IPL technical committee has allowed the franchises to look for replacements for these players. Chennai Super Kings, too, could look for a replacement for the injured Dwayne Bravo, the committee said.

Coulter-Nile took 2 for 27 against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 19, before injuring himself three deliveries into Daredevils next match, against Super Kings. He hobbled off after hurting his leg while sliding to stop the ball. Maddinson opened the batting for Royal Challengers in two games, scoring 4 and 12. Bravo, who was one of five players retained by Super Kings, hurt his shoulder while attempting a catch on the boundary in the team's first match, against Kings XI Punjab.

According to the IPL player regulations, the three franchises can choose replacements from among the players who registered for the 2014 auction but were not bought.
