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

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.
