    Interesting facts about selection of players for the IPL

    The 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.
    Would solicit views of friends.

    Very interesting selections are also there.
    Avesh Khan was sold for Rs 10 crore to Lucknow Super Giants. He is an uncapped player. The amount he got was the highest so far for an uncapped player in the history of IPL.
    74 players were sold on the first day and the total players sold were 204. England's Liam Livingstone, who was bought by Punjab Kings for 11.5 crores is the costliest foreign player in this tournament. Ishan Kishan was sold at 15.25 crores. He was bought by Mumbai Indiana and he is the player who got the maximum price in this auction. He is the second-highest-paid batsman after Yuvaraj Singh who got 15 Cr in 2o15. Shardul Thakur was sold at 10. 75 crores to DC.
    Deepak Chahar's services were obtained by Chennai Super Kings. The cost is Rs14 crore. He became the most expensive Indian fast bowler at an auction ever in the history of IPL.

    I have followed the IPL auction for the last two days. Many of the teams retained the same players what they are having before. Sunriser like teams not cared about much good players and they have backed whoever thought of to be there in their team. They backed Bhuvaneswar kumar like players who is not in form. Some out of form players were backed by some teams but some teams selected players with latest good form. They spend lot of money on them. I am getting doubt the team squad select players whether they know about cricket. Some very good players sold at very low rate in auction. Star like players Suresh Raina, Ishant were left out by teams because of their bad form. Some uncapped good youngsters were also selected by teams for good amounts. IPL helps youngsters to get some great learning through the greats of cricket.

    When there is auction and bids are made to grab the prospective players then it depends solely on the bidders as which players they are more interested and accordingly pay the price. Cricket is a game of great skills but a lot of speculations also made and go side by side and these high prices are sometimes the result of these conjectures only. The bidders know very well that in favourable circumstances all their money would be back along with good returns.
    Knowledge is power.

    Nice analysis from the author of IPL players selection process and it has once again proved beyond doubt that the cricket is the game of money spinning business and those players who performed themselves and not for the country would benefit the lot through huge auction money given to them and this also implies that the particular player is at the behest of the company which brought them and they have to prove their mantle again. So the money which they are going to recieve is huge they have the huge pressure to show their playing ability and some time hasty performance would lead to dismal show case and that would bring bad name to the player. So IPL is putting more pressure on players and they are being purchased for past performance but what is in store in future is big question as the best would win.
