which ipl franchise would suit our players best.

that is to say, where will our players benefit most from AND also where they are needed most.

this is what i think:

shakib - i have a strong feeling he will find himself at bangalore royal challengers. they will seek for a player that has the 'x factor' and someone who fills the role of middle order stroke maker and also quality spinner.

ashraful - chennai superkings are definitely lacking t20 middle order batting depth. with albie morkel regularly batting at five, it seems a certain fragment is missing and i believe our own ash is the final piece of the jigsaw.

mortaza - with the pull out of pollock, mumbai indians will be looking to replace the fast medium bowler as best as possible, and who better to do it than our very own mashrafi.

tamim - the deccan chargers have shuffled their top order relentlessly, going from gilchrist-laxman, to gilchrist-gibbs and then to gilchrist-afridi. with the very real risk of gilchrist losing his touch due to his international retirement, it seems prudent that the chargers recruit an up-and-coming t20 star; either to replace gilchrist or be his permanent opening partner. that up-and-coming t20 star is tamim.

I think the Chennai Superkings have a pretty stable batting line up and probably wont take Ashraful
I think he might be useful for Rajasthan
He might even improve his batting with coaching from Shane Warne

Bangalore is the worst possible choice for any BD player. RD is not the type of captain to support his players. Rajsthan is the best possible place for any BD player to be in, maximum learning. Money will be almost the same anywhere they go.

However do we have any choice in a buyers market? Even Pietersen doesn't have a choice I guess. :)

Ashraful should go to Delhi. Delhi has probably the most dangerous Top order but their middle order lacks the similar flair. Ashraful will fit in with Delhi's aggressive style immediately. And maybe Sehwag and Gambhir can give him some tips on how to be aggressive but still preserve your wicket in International cricket.

Mashrafe should go to Rajasthan. As they will be missing Tanvir they will need a new ball bowler who can hit BIG in the death overs. And Mash is a perfect replacement for Tanvir. On current form I'd say Mash is better than Tanvir. He has been bowling brilliantly with the new ball and we all know his hitting capabilities.

Shakib should go to Hyderabad. He is much better than Afridi in all three departments. I think at least 4-5 teams would want him. But Hyderabad should be desperate to get him. As with the absence of Afridi it leaves them without a spinner.

Tamim should go to Chennai. The Chennai openers are not aggressive enough. They open with Parthiv Patel. Tamim on his worst day would be able to score quicker than their two openers. Tamim would be devastating under the captaincy of MSD. Look at Sehwag, Yuvraj and Gambhir they are playing the best cricket of their lives with full aggression and I think Dhoni has something to do with that.

But I think all four of the players would want to go to either Bombay or Kolkata to get as near as Bollywood as possible. They would be hoping SRK gives them a special appearance in his next film. And of course all the Bollywood babes will be after them:-p.

On the contrary I'd say Bangalore and Hyderbad (or even Mumbai)teams would be the best for the lot.Other teams are more or less stable.It would be very difficult for say Tamim to break into the playing 11 of Rajastan Royals as they already have a stable Indian batting pair.Remember there are only 4 slots available to the internationals.

I agree with the author of the therad of except for Chennai which is almost set,
The Rajasthan team has money to spend this time and I have a feeling that they would go after Flintoff (to replace Tanvir) and Duminy.

All in all Mumbai,B'lore and Hyd would be the best bets for BD players

how ironic is this, all paki s not coming, and guess whats the equation
Butt-could be replaced by tamim iqbal
Afridi-more than likely to be replaced by worlds no.1 allrounder
Tanvir- World no.8 bowler
Misbah ul haq-did he just make room for our captain??

youve made some interesting points but,

Adam Gilchrist has become captain for the Deccan Chargers so it is unlikely that they will replace him with Tamim Iqbal. They also have players in the top order as you said like Gibbs and Afridi who can open, so they would probably look to sign an overseas in player who is a bowler, allrounder or a middle order batsman rather than an opener

Chennai Superkings actually have a very strong batting lineup. They have players like Hussey, Dhoni, and Albie Morkel as you say in their middle order and also some other good Indian batsmen like Subramaniam Badrinath and Suresh Raina. So I would say they are most like to sign a fast bowler, because they only have Ntini.

The rumour in India is that Bangalore Royal Challengers are favourites to sign Kevin Pietersen. Since Kevin Pietersen has a base price of 1.3 m, it is likely to suck up their 2 m budget. However, since they are losing someone like Misbah ul Haq and have a relatively weak opening pair, I would tip the Ashraful and Tamim Iqbal to have a better chance of being signed up by Bangalore Royal Challengers.

i hope they get picked and in teams that will allow them significant matches. Poor Razzak was only used after the team was out of contention and even then was used minimally.

Sakib has a good cricketing brain and should do well for any team.

Mash has the opportunity to shine since he doesn't like the old ball and the match is only 20 overs long.

I hope Ash gets picked up by a team with a captain that he can learn from (Warne, Dhoni or Ganguly).

Based on Tamim's SR, I really don't see him getting picked up by any teams.

Then, there are teams with specific needs. Delhi wants a specialist batsman; Kolkata, which has been hit by the absence of Shoaib Akhtar and Umar Gul, needs a fast bowler, possibly Shaun Tait; Mumbai would like to purchase an allrounder. "It has been generally accepted that multi-skilled players will be in demand, but most of the teams will enter the auction room with a clear, short list," a franchise official said.

The missing Pakistani players have also left the teams with a delicate balancing act to perform at the auction. According to IPL rules, teams can pick one-year replacements for the Pakistani players at the auction but will have to stay within the US$ 2 million cap. However, if the teams go for a replacement after the auction, they can spend the equivalent of the amount they would have paid the Pakistani player this year - this replacement will have to be from the original IPL list of 111 players released last week

so judging from this, i'm pretty spot on.

in my analysis i put 'selection patterns' into question. as in i arranged the players with which team they are suited in.

thankyou for the praise so far.

According to this Kolkata would be most interested in Mashrafe Mortaza and Ashraful! :)

the news follows:


Kolkata Knight Riders

Slots available 2

What the team needs With Pakistan's Umar Gul missing, Kolkata will be seeking a quality fast bowler to complement Ishant Sharma, Ajit Agarkar and Ashok Dinda. Shaun Tait or Jerome Taylor could be the ideal choice but lesser-known players like Shane Harwood of Victoria, Aaron Bird of New South Wales, or even Bangladesh's Mashrafe Mortaza cannot be ruled out. The other slot is that of a hard-hitting batsman or allrounder - Mortaza could be handy lower down the order. Kolkata could also be interested in Mohammad Ashraful, the Bangladesh captain, or Michael Dighton of Tasmania, a powerful hitter.

IPL auction 2009
Filling in the blanks
Cricinfo, February 5, 2009 (http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/ipl2009/content/current/story/389297.html)

Unlike last year, where complete units needed to be assembled, the IPL franchises arrive at this year's auction - where only overseas players are up for grabs - with a few blanks to fill in. The teams are looking to bid for between one and three players (each franchise is allowed a maximum of ten foreign players). Cricinfo looks at the strategy each team could adopt.

Bangalore Royal Challengers
Slots available 2
Amount they can spend: US$1.945 million

What the team needs Labelled as a side of Test players last season, when they put up a dismal show, Bangalore need a commanding and flamboyant batsman, preferably someone who can destroy the opposition. Kevin Pietersen is the obvious bet - he has an impressive CV and franchise owner Vijay Mallya has the deep pockets to forge a prosperous relationship.

Kolkata Knight Riders
Slots available 1
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.21 million

What the team needs With Pakistan's Umar Gul missing, Kolkata will be seeking a quality fast bowler to complement Ishant Sharma, Ajit Agarkar and Ashok Dinda. Shaun Tait or Jerome Taylor could be the ideal choice but lesser-known players like Shane Harwood of Victoria, Aaron Bird of New South Wales, or even Bangladesh's Mashrafe Mortaza cannot be ruled out. The other slot is that of a hard-hitting batsman or allrounder - Mortaza could be handy lower down the order. Kolkata could also be interested in Mohammad Ashraful, the Bangladesh captain, or Michael Dighton of Tasmania, a powerful hitter.

Deccan Chargers
Slots available 2
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.90 million

What the team needs Two aspects missing in Hyderabad's high-profile line-up last year were a stable middle-order batsman and a strike bowler. Andrew Symonds was available for only part of the season, while Herschelle Gibbs and Shahid Afridi flopped, leaving Adam Gilchrist, Rohit Sharma and Venugopal Rao to shoulder the burden. The inability of the fast bowlers to make inroads hurt, too, and the team finished last. Shaun Tait could be a target along with an allrounder who can bat. South African-born Tyron Henderson, who now plays for Middlesex, could be a valuable signing.

Kings XI Punjab
Slots available 2
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.45 million

What the team needs Owner Ness Wadia said recently he wants Andrew Flintoff desperately. Why? Because the England allrounder adds depth to the side. Punjab may be concerned about their fast bowling because Brett Lee is recovering from a foot surgery and Sreesanth hasn't played international cricket for a while. So the team needs a quick bowler like Flintoff, who can inspire others with his always-at-the-batsman bowling approach in addition to his batting skills.

Chennai Super Kings
Slots available 3
Amount they can spend: US$ 2.0 million

What the team needs With Matthew Hayden available for the whole season, Chennai have a experienced hand at the top of their batting line-up. The middle-order, marshalled by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and which also includes Michael Hussey, Subramaniam Badrinath and the hard-hitting Albie Morkel, is flush with experience and talent. The hole that perhaps needs to be plugged is that of an effective bowler. Kyle Mills and James Franklin could be be on their wish-list apart from Tait and Taylor.

Delhi Daredevils
Slots available 2
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.45 million

What the team needs A specialist batsman. With power hitters like Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and David Warner occupying the top order, JP Duminy, who showcased his versatility as a finisher during South Africa's series win in Australia recently, will be a favourite.

Rajasthan Royals
Slots available 2
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.875 million

What the team needs Rajasthan have too many vacancies so expect Shane Warne and Darren Berry to adopt the same strategy of buying lesser-known players with enough potential. Duminy is a strong prospect for the defending champions. Rajasthan will miss Sohail Tanvir, the highest wicket-taker in the IPL last season, but Morne Morkel will be available as cover.

Mumbai Indians
Slots available 3
Amount they can spend: US$ 1.76 million

What the team needs Their priority is an allrounder and obviously Andrew Flintoff tops their list. If they don't get him they will go for a batsman - even Pietersen or possibly JP Duminy. The franchise also has an eye on Kieran Pollard of West Indies, a youngster whose powerful hitting elevates him above many other experienced hands.

It mostly depends on the captain of the team. I would have preferred to be in the teams of Dhoni or Shane Warne. They care about their players. Yuvraj is probably the third best option. At least that gives some chances to hug Pretty Jinta after winning a match. ;)

Rahul Dravid is at the other extreme. The only match Razzak played under his captaincy, RD did everything to humiliate him. I have never seen Razzak such short of confidence. RD was denying singles when batting with him, even though there was no pressure of winning. That was ridiculous.

Mumbai will be bad as well. Usually Mumbai guys do not rate Bangladesh that high. Laxman seems to be NOT a good administrator. Under Dada they can get a Bangladeshi flavor; but I am sure Dada will handle Bangladeshis differently than foreigners.

Playing in a strong team has the advantage that when you are winning, usually the team atmosphere is better and more friendly.
