Just as expected. So those who missed out must play extra-ordinarily in BPL to keep their option open just in case any player gets injured.

I hope Tamim going unsold in the auction. It will be good for him

even 2 Irish players on the list.

No doubt that most of the Zim players will be unsold, but picking 7 of them whereas only 1 player from Bangladesh will surely raise the question regarding IPL governing bodies decision. To be honest, i dont see tamim getting a team in IPL 5 either.

+ Ireland - 2

We're pathetic in this format of the game. Then again, we're pathetic in the other two as well.

Good or bad, that's probably what will happen, unless the under-the-table deal mentioned in the other thread actually did go through. That, or he will be sold at the price of livestock and get only a game or two.

But Zim and Ireland aren't that much better than us either. Even WI has 3 uncapped players. It is just pure discrimination.

I'm alright with a lot of the Lankans and Windian players being there since their good T20 players but Zimbabwe has 7 players and then we have only 1? Like WTF. We should have had more players in the auction then that. Thank god BCB created BPL. Or else we would continue to be disappointed.

Zimbabwe has 7 players and BD has only Tamim. [rant edited]

I don't understand why you have fingered at India while IPL is govern by BCCI not Indian government. You should maintain some decency when you are on a public forum. Are we (India) bad neighbor? Please read some history.

Just try to accept simple facts that BD didn't have good T20 player, when they will be able to provide, for sure more and more players can be seen in the world arena.

I too agree that some of ZIM player doesn't deserve to get a team and in my opinion they won't get a team for sure. The auction is for only those players who didn't have a team in IPL. Some of BD players are already in Squad of some IPL team like Sakib in KKR.

Guys who cares? We need to improve on test cricket..... This IPL **** isnt taking India, Sri Lanka anywhere except money. India is going down a downward slope right now and they will continue to do so. I dont remember the last time in 2 years where we got humiliated like the way Indians are. Follow Clarke, Strauss, Ponting and not Shewag, Dhoni and Malinga. Bangladeshi players need to commit themselves to the longer formats and stick to that. These IPL contracts should never be their target. The Zimbabweans and Irish players hit pretty well so it makes sense to have them in auction. But wow, have em play against us at home and they will be nothing but destruction. With the way our younger generation playing right now, i have high hopes for our cricket.

The first one under the hammer is Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal. Base price $50,000.
