Interesting facts about selection of players for the IPLThe two-days long exercise of selection of cricket players through auction by the Indian Premium League (IPL) has brought interesting results. The top 10-crore club, numbering 11 players, has an interesting mix of bowlers (5), all-rounders (3), wicket keepers (2) and one batsman. It is observed that by and large all the teams have tried to retain their earlier players by bidding aggressively and non-performers were rejected by some of the teams. But it does not sum up the selection of 204 players. Ishan Kishan and Deepak Chahar topping the list and punishment to more experienced players like Suresh Raina and Ishant Sharma are interesting outcomes of this auction.
