Fasten your Seat-Belts - IPL 5 Auction Day is here ! ! !
The much awaited IPL-5 Auction would take place as the hammer would go down once again on Feb 4th in Bangalore were several players would be hoping to make their mark in the big stage.
We are just a few days away from the much awaited IPL-5 Auction. The players who would be seen in action in auction would be the ones who were not a part in any of the IPL season in the teams and also players from the Kochi Tuskers Team. The teams will have an additional salary cap of $2 million.
Should any of the Kochi players fail to attract the bid, their salaries
will be covered by the IPL through the franchise's bank guarantee worth
Rs 156 crores that has been encashed by the BCCI. Among the leading
players that will be part of the auction are Muttiah Muralitharan,
Brendon McCullum, Mahela Jayawardene and Ravindra Jadeja. Many players would be hoping to make a come back in their International side using IPL as a platform and some to prove themselves in the game. We also hope to see some good unknown talents to emerge out from the auction.
Royal Challengers Bangalore already have a good set of players up their ranks and would be looking to add to their strengths. RCB already did a wonderful job by retaining Chris Gayle for the next 2 seasons. We also had picked up Andrew McDonald, the allrounder from Australia, from the Delhi Daredevils for the 2012 IPL season during trading window.
We have had loads of discussions in our RCB website as to which player should be picked and who should be left out. We got a mixed response from all and Lets hear it from RCB fans as to what thoughts they share on it for the welfare of the team.
Fanatic Fan Jinish mentioned that Ravindra Jadeja will the luckiest of all and will be enjoying the most
of the termination of the KTK team and also had thoughts of getting Vinay back in.All in All...It would definitely be a
thrilling Auction to watch this time.
Fan karthik-Shetty4 had some excellent points to share on. His thoughts were "we should get Vinay,Akhil are must choices.Get Parthiv(If possible) and optional
between Sreesanth,RP Singh,Ashish Nehra.Get Amit Verma and Nervanda C
Aiyappa from uncapped signing process.Believe me,RCB will be more
Rocking." He also had a very valid point on making our domestic base strong by taking players like Vinay,Akhil,Aiyappa,Gaurav Dhiman to be signed.
Fan RoyalShaan spoke for taking Darren bravo, Vinay Kumar and Andre Russel..Jadeja if possible. Fan jigarr-jain1 spoke on taking Ben Laughlin as a good choice and I quite agree with him after watching BBL. Many fans spoke on getting Parthiv Patel in and also to make our middle-order more strong. Fan parappanangadi-cricketclub shared his view on Sree santh as a spicy pick who would be adding more spirit among the fans!!!.
Lets keep the discussions going along strong and who knows maybe the management would listen to your voice and pick them in the RCB side.
