112 players in second IPL auction

Cricinfo staff

January 29, 2009

The IPL has announced an exhaustive list of 112 overseas players who will be considered for the second auction in Goa on February 6. Not surprisingly, Australians dominate the list (27) while the big difference from last year's edition is the addition of 21 England players.

Each franchise has a maximum of US$2m to spend on their overseas signings in the auction, which gets underway on February 6, and it is likely that only about 16 players - or two per franchise - will be chosen out of the 112.

The England players will be available for a three-week window in the tournament for the next two years, with Kevin Pietersen the star attraction. Pietersen has a base price of US$1.3 million, and it is expected that he could be the highest paid player. Veterans like Dominic Cork and Darren Gough also figure in the list.

"We are extremely happy with the interest the league has garnered globally," said Lalit Modi, the IPL commissioner, "and look forward to the action at the second player auction in Goa."

List of players for second auction

Also worth noting, Tyron Henerson plays county cricket in England but is actually South African.

I see.

I still think our players have a good chance, England and South African players are likely to cost more, BD players will be relatively cheap. If teams are looking to consolidate as Lalit Modi has been hinting, then I wouldn't be surprised if there are more BD players than English ones! Call me optimistic!

Sakib will make it, Mash should but probably wont, Ash and Tamim should be kicking their own back for not grabbing the chance.

IMO, those IPL fellas would snatch Ash at any available opportunity, its only that Ash himself is giving them enough reasons atm not to. All his own doing.

Which is why BD players will give their wickets cheaply as well.

"We will definitely play an active role in helping them out," Modi said. "We are looking at adding a few [Bangladesh] players for the next IPL auction. And we are also looking at a team from Bangladesh participating in the Champions League from 2010 onwards."

so I am expecting 1 or 2 players will be playing.

be sure about it if only one gonna selected, that would be Shakib. and he deserves it. above all his lucky charm is still on. IPL team managements are looking for all-rounders more than just a bowler or batsman. so from this point of view Shakib is the best choice as he is on the top of the ladder. he has batter chances to be selected.

You've hit the nail on the head. Absolutely spot on.

If only Mr "talented" Ashraful carried his brains in his head instead of his a**, the world could have been his oyster. sigh...

Maybe mortaza.
But if pakistani players pull out of IPL it gives bangladeshi players further opportunity.

So that I say .... "sucker!!!!!"

Ash is our trozan horse for IPL.

Mohamedan learned it hrad way.... our national team never learned at all.....I am hoping one the IPL team will fall under the same trap.

I don't think there's any special quota for Muslim cricketers? BD players have to be good enough to be picked.

Only Shakib, Mash and Ash deserve to be in that list.
Tamim doesn't deserve to be in that list. His strike rat is in 80's.(T20 SR).

But Only SHakib will get it (most likely).

I reckon Jeetan Patel would be a good bowler to bid for, he will go for very cheap and has a good twenty20 record and is capable of bowling at the death(its his favourite aspect of cricket)

how in the world are players like rajin saleh get auctioned.
rajin saleh is a test material.
so,4get about t20. i think cricinfo did a mistake.
rajin saleh;s inclusion cnt b justified. i bet on this.
i like rajin saleh as a player but being realistic.considering him for t20 is a stupidity.we dont consider him for intl;s also.we bring him for test matches only.

i wont how they included his name..

nadif and ziaur ..they have proved smthing often in domestic circuit...but rajin...i dnt get it...sm1 give me an answer...i m goin mad....!!!

If Shah Rukh Khan is smart, he should pick up Shakib, it makes the obvious sense to me, but then again its a competition based on talent and money not a tournament based on cultural and linguistic ties.
Lets see what happens.

January 29, 2009, 06:05 PM
Realistically, only Sakib, Mash, and Ash really have a chance. Tamim did, but hes been invisible for a while.

whoever gave the list is begging for it. i wonder in what sense he(obviously) thought Rajin saleh, Junaid Siqqiqi, Mehrab Jnr, Nadif Chowdhury and Ziaur rahman will have a chance and the franchise will buy them with Dollar to be in IPL ? when players like Mushfiqur, Raqibul and mahmudullah etc have real doubt of getting a chance!

Ipl will probably take some of these players Probably for collecting the ball from outside the boundary line after someone hit a six or four. just ridiculous

rajin and mehrab's inclusion indicates its a farcical list drawn up by the BCCI or IPL to try and appease the BCB. they picked players they know, not the best 20-20 players we have.

rasel should have been on the list.

as long as sakib gets a big contract, i am pleased. mash deserves one as well, though he's not a very good 20-20 bowler.

Ditto. anybody forgotten that he was the first bowler to take a wicket maiden in 20/20 history??

economical rate is far crucial than wickets at 20/20(well both quite important with economy having an edge over wicket taking!)

would be ridiculous if shakib doesn't get a contract, and agree that rasel should have been on the list.

I wonder how much our gour real contenders have per head:

Sakib-$350,000...real deal, he's a better investment than maybe even flintoff. He alone can make a team go to the final

Mash- $105,000 ...he's pretty good, but his commitment worries me sometimes. I'm sure the IPL ppl will notice this as well. Nevertheless, he can be quite penetrating as a bowler.

Ash $100,000... a hit or miss player. But maybe in Twenty20 he'll prosper under less pressure. He can make runs from ball one and can easily score 20-30 runs in most matches in no. 6-7, just like Albie Morkel. Good value for money, plus fan base in calcutta.

Tamim-$70,000... again, a hit or miss player. Wud prob get ~20 every 2nd game. But prob not worth getting a spot more than 1-2 matches, especially since its the opening spot


Btw, do u guys know what countries do not have international commitment in this time? Cud be crucial in selecting players.

i believe ashraful will make it. if ipl look at his recent 20-20 form in ncl. they will be interested. also his overall 20-20 statistics is not bad at all. once he had the world record of fastest 20-20 half century.

I was expecting more Pakistanis on the list.

Good news for the BD players who will not get a contract in this auction. pak players are not likely to be available due to tensions surrounding Mumbai Attack...

Players unsold at auction available as replacements
IPL franchises will be allowed to sign on 'unsold' players at next month's auction as replacements for contracted cricketers who won't be available for the entire season this year. The IPL's latest decision, which could make for a busier auction, also allows franchises to sign uncapped players not part of the auction as replacements.

Franchise officials said the move could particularly help overcome the uncertainty surrounding the availability of Pakistan players for the tournament following the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Players unsold during the February 6 auction will be available at a fee "equivalent to or greater than the reserve price", the release said, though the amount spent on them would not count towards the US$2 million cap on player purchases for each franchise.
