@bowl_out I dislike IPL, in fact I am kinda anti T20. Just hope the test stars remain injury free after this tournament because this is a crucial year for Indian cricket. I won't mind if some of the guys like Che, Ishant, Saha, Shami, Ashwin, Vijay remain unsold (latter 4 doubtful) so that they get a county stint before the Eng tour.

Even if Saha goes unsold, he will probably play club cricket for Mohun Bagan instead :wall:

Do not get me wrong -- I actually like the general premise; the legendary Australian system could be so, because international stars (Hayden, Langer, Ponting et al.) regularly played Grade cricket (Ponting famously kept tabs on grade cricket results even when on national duty, which, according to M "Mr. Cricket" Hussey, makes Ponting the "real" Mr. Cricket) ...

Unfortunately, Saha's efforts are a bit wasted in CAB club tournaments, because there is a **tremendous** anti-East Zone (non-Hindi belt) bias when it comes to national selection. Unless you are a bona fide ATG, you will not even make the squad, let alone the playing XI. At the moment, we have Saha, but still there are voices galore calling for his removal. Tells you all you need to know about the pathetic state of affairs. Sudip Chatterjee, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Shreevats Goswami, Anustup Majumdar, Writtick Chatterjee, Ishan Porel, Kanishk Seth -- most have not even heard of them.

You want Ishant again for England tour? Haven’t you been tired of him yet? Are you from Chennai? I hope Ishant gets sold to Chennai or your home town team soyou can see him during CSK games more often.

Ishan Porel has many supporters here. And Saha has been highly praised and many want him to playbover pappu or anyone. I would play Saha in England and I am sure he will play since Kohli likes Saha, the keeper, and thats what matters most.

Chennai.

 

Though to be honest, it's hard to support Chennai this time around with an over the hill Dhoni. Let's see.

No I am not from Chennai and have no affinity for any IPL team. I believe Ishant has a role in England, I am hoping a county stint can get the bearings inside his skull tuned better. For a 5 test series we need at least 5 quicks in our touring party to cover for any possible injury/pitch, even Ishant haters will admit he is in that top 5 list. I have high hopes from him, guy gave us 2-3 matches on the platter last time and we took only 1, Lord's.

Why did Kings X1 even retain Axar Patel...they should have let everyone go and go crazy on the auction for a couple of marquee names :wall:

 

they let go everyone to retain Axar...really ?

Seriously a silly move.

 

Anyway, is willow covering Auction live? Last year it did show. Nothing on the tv guide.

I am with you on this brother, the bias against Bengal is evident even on this forum. In fact I would say Bengal, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu (the 3 present powerhouses of East+South zone) will have a tough time in the near future, irrespective of merit all spots are being filled by Hindi belt+Punjab/Mumbai/Gujarat. All achievements by players from these 3 states are being downplayed to such an extent that sometimes I want to stop posting on this forum. Saha is the GOAT Indian keeper and a primary candidate for ATG Indian XI, yet he is treated like an untouchable here. Vijay, Rahul, Ashwin, Nair all in the firing line irrespective of their pedigree. Even a UPwallah like Shami is a pariah here just because he chose to represent Bengal. Under Kumble this wasn't the case, all the more reason why I am sad after his departure. I hate getting into debates over zonal representation and * but * got real, there is a deliberate tilt towards certain state players and that is grossly unfair, I mean when stalwarts like Ashwin, Saha, Vijay, Rahul, Shami are being attacked 24x7 you can feel there is a pattern at play here.

No I pray no one picks Ishant and he gets a county stint. IPL 1st season was on when I was in high school, went with the flow and KKR was a sentimental favorite but the way SRK filled the team with Pakistanis, that was the 1st breaking point. Then we had some multiple captain * idea of Buchanan and  finished last I guess. Even attended an IPL match in person at Eden in the 1st season but never caught the IPL bug. 

 

I lost interest in IPL after I moved to college. I prefer catching up on other sports during these couple of months.

That's good. This is good entertainment, I was addicted to Premier Hockey League as a a kid and would cheer against the Hyderabad team every time simply because they had filled their roster with Pak players. Now I only pull the leg of the CSK supporters among my friends because they are the guys who get triggered by baits. I don't follow the matches but whenever Dhoni's team loses some of us gang up on his chamchas and the butthurt is real among them when they lose :phehe:

Does Willow telecast IPL auctions?

 

@folks in the US : any good links to watch the auction?

@bowl_outAnd @UnknownGenius

 

 

As discussed above, Willow did show last year but with now introduction of Hotstar here, certain games or things might be restricted on some channels from here on going forward so there is a chance Willow TV channel might not cover it.

 

Hotstar app is available for one month free trial. You can watch it on there for free and if you like other content, then can subscribe it for $9.99/month. It also has lotnof other stuff if you like other shyt like Indian movies etc.

 

I use it to chromecast to tv and it works great.
