None of them are first choice for the 11, lol

It beats me. Why would they invest in these useless guys?  Sam Curran is another bizarre choice. Between Varun chakra and Sam curran a whopping 15 plus crores spent by PKXI.

Seriously Joe Root is that bad not to be picked by any team? What happened to Adam Hales? Also Mark wood has become much quicker now. Looks like CSK let him go.

And they bought Mohit for 5cr instead.

Now Ngidi is injured and Willey has pulled out of IPL, so no overseas fast bowlers

Mark wood have been a box office pick. He was clocking consistently 145k plus in West Indies.

That's news to me. Seriously what are the team owners, scouts and coaches/mentors/captains smoking? 

The names you have put in OP are shocking, and this is after 11 seasons, so auction mistakes should have been eliminated by now.

I am not sure about who all went under the hammer but surely more Bangladeshis and Lankans had to be picked, especially if they came with low base prices. I can imagine Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah, Sabbir, Mendis, Dickwella, Dananjaya etc having more impact than some of the goras especially in these conditions. Plus if they could be bought at 50L/1 cr you could easily build a strong bench of overseas players.

 

Most importantly it opens a big market for the teams, merchandise, sponsors, brands, viewership etc. For instance Bangladesh will always be more invested in an Indian product like IPL compared to SENAW countries. With a sizable population (170 million + 20 million in India) and booming middle class, the one sport country would have been a great catch for a team like Kolkata, a city which also carries an emotional attachment for the neighbors. Wonder if these Aussie/NZ/RSA coaches are being nepotistic here. Also the people who run the league need to be more smart.

They can still buy Wood as somebody's replacement, right? His base price was low.. Is he available during the IPL?

Morne Morkel is another option... He is 34, so goes well with CSK's profile :laugh:

If they can pick Mark wood they should. Otherwise on flat wickets this pop gun attack will be obliterated.

It might be due to their availability this year see Root getting picked next year for some reason Ganguly is very impressed with Root might be bought by DC next year.

On an aside Sanju Manju earns 1 million dollar a year for his  pathetic commentary along with few other commies.

1 million USD? Seems far too much for a 1 month stint to be a part of a commentary team!

 

50 lakhs to 1cr INR seems more reasonable.

Other than Dickwella and Kusal, Lanka has no real T20 cricketer. You don't pick them test players in T20s

That was a slower ball. Even bumrah got swept on a slow ball by much inferior batsman in tewatia.

Mohit Sharma getting 5 crore. He should be getting Rs 120, a rupee for his average speed. You ain't fooling anyone with your back of the hand stuff cowboy. CSK is supposed to be smart with this. Srini is missing his sums and arithmetic. He is going senile

How Udadkut got record bids in both seasons is astonishing. He has to be the luckist IPL player in history. Terrible record, little international experience yet two times consecutive record bidding.

General knowledge question. I don't know about NFL drafting as i dont' follow. Or even any other drafting for other sports. Do they spend so much money on worthless players like IPL teams do?
