Next three IPL seasons to comprise 74 matches each (http://www.cricinfo.com/indian-premier-league-2011/content/current/story/475828.html)

September 5, 2010

Two fundamental issues concerning the 2011 IPL season - the tournament format and player retention - have been finally resolved by the league's governing council, after months of uncertainty which followed the addition of new franchises. The next three seasons of the IPL will have 74 matches each, the format designed to reward the most consistent teams during the league phase of the tournament. The 2011season will begin five days after the World Cup, which ends on April 2.

Apart from changing the tournament's format at a meeting in Mumbai, the governing council also decided to allow franchises to retain four players in their squads, the rest going into the auction scheduled for November. The franchises' spending power for a squad of 30 players has been capped at $9 million.


Format

In each of the next three seasons, the IPL will comprise 70 league matches and four playoffs. The ten teams will be split into two groups of five each, but will be ranked together in one composite league table. The change was necessary due to the inclusion of two new teams, Pune and Kochi, from the next season. An extension of the current home-and-away format would have stretched the season to 94 matches, which had prompted concerns of player burn-out. Franchise owners were also reluctant to reduce the minimum number of matches their team would play each season. These constraints have led to a convoluted format.


League phase

Every team will play the same number of league games (14, 7 home and 7 away) as in previous seasons with the following break-up: Each team will play the other four in its group both home and away (eight matches), it will play four of the teams in the other group once (four matches, either home or away) and it will play the remaining team in the other group twice, both home and away. A random draw will decide the composition of the groups as well as who plays whom across the groups once and twice.


Playoffs

The teams that finish first and second in the league table will contest the first playoff, which is effectively a semi-final (Game A). The teams that finish third and fourth will play each other in a knockout that is effectively a quarter-final (Game B). The loser of Game A will play the winner of Game B in a match (Game C) that will decide the second finalist that will play the winner of Game A in the grand final.


Player retention

Each of the eight franchises that participated in 2010 can retain up to four players but a maximum of only three Indians. The retained players must have been part of the franchise's registered squads for the 2010 season and will not be part of November's auction.

The franchise and the player it wishes to retain must come to a mutual agreement regarding the retention and the fee for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. However, irrespective of the actual fee agreed upon by the franchise and the player, the franchise's salary cap will be reduced by the following amount for each player retained:

* $1.8 million per year for the first player retained
* $1.3 million per year for the second player retained
* $900,000 per year for the third player retained
* $500,000 per year for the fourth player retained

Therefore, if a franchise decides to retain four players, it will be charged $4.5 million per year and will have only $4.5 million to spend on other players, compared to the $9 million available to a franchise that retains no one. Also, the size of the squad is capped at 30 players.

Ahead of the auction in November, the two new franchises, Pune and Kochi, will also be allowed to sign up to four players from a list of players who were not part of any of the other eight franchises in the first three IPL seasons. However, if either Pune or Kochi sign players ahead of the auction, their salary cap will also be reduced by the same amount as the salary cap for existing franchises retaining players.

All the other international capped players, as well as other players who have played 75% of their team's matches in 2010, will be part of the auction.


Player regulation

A franchise can have up to ten overseas players in their squad but only four can be on the field during a game. The player contracts that will be signed ahead of the 2011 season will be valid for two years, with a right of extension for the third year.

All players who are part of a franchise's squad will come under the salary cap. The Indian cricketers who have not yet played an international game will have their salaries fixed as follows:

* Rupees 10,00,000 (around US$21,500) per year for players who have not played first-class or List A cricket between 2009-10 and 2010-11 and for those who made their debuts during this period.
* Rupees 20,00,000 (around US$43,000) per year for players who first played first-class or List A cricket in the 2006-07, 2007-08 or 2008-09 seasons.
* Rupees 30,00,000 (around US$64,500) per year for players who first played first-class or List A in the 2005-06 season or earlier.


Revised catchment areas

The IPL has changed the catchment areas for the existing franchises because of the addition of two new teams from the 2011 season. Teams have to include four players from their catchment area in the squad of 30.

* Mumbai Indians: Mumbai, Baroda
* Royal Challengers Bangalore: Karnataka, Goa
* Deccan Chargers: Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa
* Chennai Super Kings: Tamil Nadu, Railways
* Delhi Daredevils: Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal
* Kings XI Punjab: Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir
* Kolkata Knight Riders: West Bengal, Jharkhand, Assam, Tripura, Sikkim, Manipur
* Rajasthan Royals: Rajasthan, Gujarat, Saurashtra
* Pune Warriors: Maharashtra, Vidarbha
* Kochi: Kerala, Services, Madhya Pradesh

Why does he have to get bought by an IPL team? And why are you so excited about it? Didn't the previous treatment of Ash & Mash in IPL teach you anything? Be absolutely happy that Shakib is playing in County rather than IPL.

absolutely, in county there is lot to learn and thus become a better player.

in IPL, there is nothing to learn, only money to earn, and then become a stupid frustrated benchwarmer.

yeah,i guess i gotta agree with you there,but then again,wouldn't you like seeing Shakib bowl a maiden or slog sweep a few sixes and hear the commentators go berserk about how gifted this boy from Bangladesh is,and how underrated his national team is.Well THEN AGAIN,i do like dreaming every now and then :P

Seriously,the IPL or the Champion's League are probably the two best ways to make an impression,or to get attention,the sort of attention players like Shakib deserve.But yeah,i'd rather watch him develop as a player rather than see him waste his career over money..

career dont get wasted over IPL or CLt20. Careers gets made through these tournaments. Look at kieron pollard who was he durng the last CLt20 and who is he now. Everybody seems to have 2 things mixed up, majority of the county season doesnt get mixed up with IPL. So if tamim gets selected by an ipl team and a county team he can do both based on his national duty

Yeah, because playing in a league where most of the best players play in will not have anything for a player to learn about. I really don't get the IPL hate. Its one of the best places to be in for recognition and exposure to quality cricket. County cricket is also great but I think shakib and tamim should play atleast 2 seasons in the IPL.

Sachin, Dhoni, Sehwag secure - Ganguly, Dravid, Kumble out (http://www.cricindian.com/news/sachin-dhoni-sehwag-secure-ganguly-dravid-kumble-out-ipl4)

The player auction for the fourth edition of Indian Premier League might have been postponed, but franchises have already prepared a list of players to be retained. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar will be retained by Mumbai Indians, but Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble have not been provided shield by their owners.

IPL is being seen as a hundred percent turnover business than a game. And this is proved, as franchisee owners are going for foreign players ignoring our own Indian players.

Ganguly becomes a stranger for Kolkata

Kolkata Knight Riders owner, ShahRukh Khan has decided not to retain Bengal Tiger Sourav Ganguly for IPL4. Instead West Indies player Chris Gayle will be retained.

Dravid-Kumble, a forgotten story now..

Royal Challengers Bangalore owner, Dr. Vijay Mallya has not included Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble in their safe players list. Virat Kohli will be retained for next season and its likely that New Zealand's Ross Taylor will also be retained.

Sachin's magic continues..

Mumbai Indians' owner Mukesh Ambani has retained his star player Sachin Tendulkar in the team. Sachin with hard hitter Kieron Pollard, Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga and Harbhajan Singh are being retained. Zaheer Khan has failed to secure a place in this list.

Dhoni irreplaceable for CSK

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will remain as the King of Chennai Super Kings. Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay and South African Albie Morkel are the other players who are safe.

Sehwag safe, Gambhir in line

Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag has been retained in the squad. Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik, Ashish Nehra or Dirk Nannes are expected to be retained.

Warne the King

Shilpa Shetty, the owner of Rajasthan Royals is likely to retain Shane Warne as the captain of the team. Australian all-rounder Shane Watson has also been saved. Excellent in-form Yusuf Pathan is also in the list of players to be retained.

Ganguly, Dravid shown the door, Kohli stays on (http://www.espncricinfo.com/indian-premier-league-2011/content/current/story/490973.html)

ganguly left by kolkata...i think they will buy him back in the auctions..nobody will go after ganguly and they can buy him back in a fair prise but if they retained him that would have cost them a fortune..1.8 million would have been reduced from the auction money for the 1st retained player!

December 8, 2010, 09:32 PM
This is to conserve cash. They can keep only 4 with one non-Indian, and the cost of retaining the top 4 can eat up into the player budget. Many of these players may just be resigned during the auction but probably at a cheaper rate. The headlines are a bit duplicitous just like the headlines about Yunus "siphoning" money "meant for the poor". Journalists are desperate.

The headlines are a bit duplicitous just like the headlines about Yunus "siphoning" money "meant for the poor". Journalists are desperate.

I think it's a maximum of 3 Indians and thus at least 1 non-Indian, Mumbai have retained Malinga and Pollard, as well as Sachin and Bhaji.

I think this whole retention process is flawed and is susceptible to price fixing. The franchises could secretly agree not to compete with each other in bidding for certain players to keep the prices down.

Taken from Cricinfo:

According to the auction rules for IPL 4, teams can retain up to four players, only three of whom can be Indians. The retained players - who must have been part of the franchise's registered squads for the 2010 season - will be valued at $1.8 million for the first player, $1.3 million for the second, $900,000 for the third and $500,000 for the fourth.

The retained players are:-

Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga
Chennai: MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, M Vijay, Albie Morkel
Rajasthan: Shane Warne, Shane Watson
Delhi: Virender Sehwag
Bangalore: Virat Kohli

Kolkata Knight Riders, Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab have decided not to retain any of their players.

The decisions made by Mumbai and Chennai are fairly obvious and expected but maybe a little surprising to find that neither Zaheer Khan nor Bollinger were retained at the expense of say Bhaji and Vijay/Morkel.
Bangalore seem to be banking on the potential of Kohli both in terms of performance and marketing. However $1.8 million taken from the purchasing budget makes it seem a big gamble. Also note that they have not retained Kumble and Dravid, their previous captain and "icon". They probably are hoping to pick them up cheap at the auction, I can't see many teams fighting for these two.
Similarly Kolkata have not retained Ganguly probably for the reasons outlined above. $1.8 million for Ganguly would be absurd, when they can probably get him for around $200,000 at the auction.

What does this mean for the Bangladeshi players (mainly Shakib and Tamim) that are eyeing up the IPL. Well now that it seems likely that they will be available for the majority of the tournament their chances should be hopeful. What they have going for them is that they should be good value for money. Particularly for the teams that have a smaller budget due to player retention. Tamim could be a "cheaper" alternative to a Gayle, McCullum or Ghambir, and prove to be excellent value for money. Regarding Shakib, there would be no excuses for the teams if they fail to bid for him, he would be an asset to any team, whatever the price. Maybe even Abdur Razzak could join them if he keeps up this good form and takes it into the World Cup. Mashrafe would need a repeat performance against India alongside exceptional performances in the other games to stand a chance. And Ashraful... unless Sachin decides to give him a very generous wedding present I don't think IPL 4 will have the honour of having the company of Ash and his Eids.
