View Full Version : Ashraful and Mashrafe in second IPL auction

March 9, 2008, 08:09 AM
Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq, Australia's Shane Watson, and Mohammad Ashraful, the Bangladesh captain, are among 18 players included in the second Indian Premier League (IPL) to be held in Mumbai on March 11. The list is made up of seven New Zealanders, four Australians, three Pakistanis, two Bangladeshis, one Sri Lankan and South African each but no England cricketers.

The injury-prone Watson has not played for Australia since the World Cup and he has struggled during Queensland's Pura Cup campaign. He earned a recall to the national side for the CB Series but nagging leg problems cut forced him out again. Misbah, who was not in the circle for the initial auction, is a big draw given his Twenty20 success this past season.

Mohammad Yousuf and Ashwell Prince, who failed to be picked up by any of the eight franchises at the main auction last month, will be auctioned again.

"There are 13 other foreign players who have shown keen interest to play in the first season," a top BCCI official told IANS. These include Shaun Tait, on a self-imposed indefinite break from cricket, Brad Hogg, who recently retired, West Indies' Dwayne Smith, and Yasir Hameed, the Pakistan batsman. Seven other Australians have also apparently expressed interest.

The IPL permits each franchise buy more foreign players outside the list of 18 if they inform the tournament officials about who they are interested in. The IPL organisers would then negotiate the players' base prices and try and secure No-Objection Certificates (NOCs) from the respective country boards.

This auction is expected to be relatively smaller than the first, which raked in US$42 million. The eight franchise owners still have unspent money, a factor which has necessitated a second auction. They are: $374,000 (Bangalore), $23,750 (Chennai), $71,250 (Delhi), $262,500 (Hyderabad), $1,700,000 (Jaipur), $107,500 (Kolkata), $292,250 (Mohali) and $53,750 (Mumbai).

"If a team overspends $5 million on players who were initially not available but become available later, the excess expenditure will be ignored," said the official. "Also, player fees for Indian players who were not in the auction do not count against the $5m purse. There will be no more auctions this season."

All team owners have to finalise their squads 30 days before the start of the 2008 season, which is March 19. The IPL kicks off on April 18.

Players for second auction:
Pakistan: Mohammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq; South Africa: Ashwell Prince; New Zealand: Ross Taylor, Peter Fulton, Jamie How, Jeetan Patel, Chris Martin, James Franklin; Australia: Brad Hodge, Shane Watson, James Hopes, Luke Pomersbach; Sri Lanka: Prasanna Jayawardene; Bangladesh: Mohammad Ashraful, Mashrafe Mortaza.

Players who have expressed their interest:
Australia: Shaun Marsh, Brad Hogg, Shaun Tait, Adam Voges, Mick Lewis, Darren Lehmann, Allan Wise, Aiden Blizzard, Adam Crosthwaite; South Africa: Goolam Bodi; Pakistan: Yasir Hameed; West Indies: Kieran Powell, Dwayne Smith.

How can Ashraful get $75,000 for playing in Delhi team, if they only have $71,250 left?

And where's Rafique? Isn't he supposed to play in the Kolkata team? Or is it possible to buy players without auction?

Ashraful wasnt bought by Delhi, he was bought by the IPL...and those reports about Ash playing for Delhi, I think are false he must be auctioned before playing for a team...but Rafique wasnt bought by IPL so he cant be auctioned and if a team wants Rafique they must sign him personally as long as there isnt multiple interest he can play for that team, but if there is multiple interest he must be auctioned too.

If two or more teams show interest toward a player, then he is usually auctioned. If only one team contacts a player, he can be signed by a franchise. Now that Ash will be auctioned, there is no gurantee Delhi will get him. I wouldn't be surprised if he makes 120-150 k now.

How?dont u see the teams budgets?And there are much better players than him in the auction as well...I'd consider him lucky if he even gets a team...Mashrafe even more unlikely.

With Ash and Mash's out of form in cricket, I dont think that they will get the nod. They will have to remain in BD and improve their cricket, especially for the Asian games. Ash and Mash dont need more money anyways, they are earning enough at home.
I am surprised at the inclusion of Zoysa from SL. He has not played international cricket for years.Ash is much better than him.

There are some loopholes.... many team has some australian players who most likely won't play in the first IPL.... in their cases, only quarter of their salary will count toward the salary cap which is 5 mil.... so teams can go over 5 Mil if they feel some of their players won't make the whole IPL tournament....

these are the budgets after the reductions, most teams have already gone over $5 million but due to the unavaliblity of the players they got some money back...and this is what they have left

No the reduction wasn't done... the money that they didn't count was the money they paid to indian palyers outside the auction list.... They can't be sure yet who is playing and who's not, so there is no way they can make the reduction right now....

From cricinfo


This auction is expected to be relatively smaller than the first, which was worth US$42 million. The eight franchise owners still have unspent money, a factor which has necessitated a second auction. The amounts are: $374,000 (Bangalore), $23,750 (Chennai), $71,250 (Delhi), $262,500 (Hyderabad), $1,700,000 (Jaipur), $107,500 (Kolkata), $292,250 (Mohali) and $53,750 (Mumbai).

"If a team exceeds $5 million [after spending] on players who were initially not available but become available later, the excess expenditure will be ignored," said the official.

So they can go over 5 mil as long as some players are not available....

For 20-20 matches, I would have thought the two most obvious candidates from Bangladesh would be Aftab and Rasel. Mashrafe maybe last year. But ever since he started migrating towards the square-leg umpire as the bowler is approaching, his value has somewhat diminished.

Razzak was on the list he was included yesterday and he got a team but Ash and Mash who signed with IPL months ago still dont have a team. And they were in the auction but no one bidded for them. And the last day for the teams to submit their final squad is March 18th, if Rafique is gonna play...Kolkata or any other team have to sign him before that day.

I just can't understand on what basis they are selecting players for a T20 league.

Salman Butt as an opening batsmen is one of the most slowest and boring cricketers to watch in a T20 match and they bought him for 100K .If you add up his and Mohammed Hafeeze's strike rate they merely brush pass Ashraful's mighty 180.55.

AND , what on earth is Ashwell Prince being paid 175K for?? His highest score is 6 and forget T20 , his batting skills in a test match is bound to make a commentator yawn.

Kylie Mills gets 150K as compared to Razzak , who is currently on of the most econOmical bowlers in the game.:hairpull:

Tell you what ,this IPL is a joke. I wouldn't waste my time to watch 'genuine' T20 talent from the likes of Kylie Mills and Ashwell Prince.

Salman Butt will do fine in T20. He has always done well in indian soil and has quite a decent SR. Hafeez is a utility cricketer who can bowl some offspin in the middle overs, field well and chip in with some runs in needed. Mills is a quality pacer IMO.

The only ridiculous inclusion is Prince, I agree. He is a good fielder but his batting will not be worth the money he is getting. I guess the only reason he was picked because IPL has agree to pay more than half of his salary.

Indians are not dumb that they will select Mashrafee over Razzaque,, Dont forget Razzaque was number 9,10 player in ODi last years and no other Bangaldesh bowler came close to him. Recently he has been batting really good as well. So its an "Automatic choice" to select the best perfomer from Bangladesh squad.,.. moreover, playing with likes of Kallis, Dravid, Kumble,, he will come back stronger and confident... He deserves it more than anyone else, He is probably getting the lowest pay of all but more than the pay,, the experience is what matters to him more. And thts the spirit of the game. I think next year tehre will be more Bangladeshi players like Tamim, Shahadat, etc..... but it all depends what we do in Pakistan and Asia cup. The world is watching....

Some are even worse than Ash. e.g. Sarwan, nothing good in the world cup and the Stanford 20/20, so many more whose names I do not want to mention. In te world cup Ash and Aftab scored very well, it was due to them that BD beat the WI

mashrafee is not much of a T20 bowler. and even if he was. with his recent form, i wouldn't select him if i were the GM of an IPL franchise.

same with ash. his performance of late has been horrendous. yes he got out to some good balls, but that ain't no excuse. his talent is no less than any human who has picked up a cricket bat, he has to score runs. period. and i believe he eventually will.

razzak got gyped. some no-name tasmania brett _____ gets 100K and razzak 50? you have to be effing me. anyways razzak will be amongst the top 5-10 bowlers in the league and he'll get a big pay raise come next year.

rasel also deserved an IPL call up more than mash or ash.

aftab also should have been auctioned. he was one of the top run getters in the WC. as long as the team loses matches, player achievements will be swept under the rug. its just the way it is.

According to The Telegraph’s sources, Shoaib’s replacement (in Kolkata team) may well be from among Andre Nel and Monde Zondeki, both South Africans, and Bangladesh’s Mashrafe Mortaza.

If Mashrafe was picked then that would be great. I wish Ashraful was picked too so that these players could get better practice against the best competition. If Mashrafe could play that could really benefit him.

don't attack them like this. too much pressure from fans are also bad. they are trying with their heart and mind. don't put the shackles of non performance on their feet. they served us well. we had our glory days. look how the indians performed against SA. did you see anything about crowds going awry!

I think they will pick Andre nel over mashrafee any day, but if they want some batting power as well, they might just go for Mash. you never know.
