IPL-4 Auctions 2011- Most Comprehensive article

IPL 2011 Auction held on 8 Jan 2011 (the first day) is over and it has given some interesting results. Here is a short summary and analysis.

Presenting the teams in alphabetical order and as per the possible lineup with the players at the end of day one in each squad. The amounts for each player might not be exact, taking the conversion from dollar to rupee and thus is a close approximation.

* Have also added the results of the auction on 9 Jan 2011, the second day. The players bought today 9 Jan are not in bold and those bought yesterday are in bold. Now only the domestic uncapped players remain which will make up the bulk of the teams.

* Updating about the uncapped players as well. They are in italics.


*  RETAINED PLAYERS SALARY-

*Also please note that according to IPL rules, for retaining one player, 1.8 million dollars or around 8.4 crores will be deducted from total team money allocated of 9 million $ or 41.4 crores, similarly for 2nd retained player, 1.3 million $ or 6 crore rupees, for 3rd retained player, 0.9 million $ or 4 crore Rs and for fourth retained player, 0.5 million $ or 2.33 crore Rs will be deducted. This however DOES NOT mean that it will be the actual salary of those players. It will be what is agreed upon by the owners and the players and this can be more or less than the deducted amount. Thus the auction might say Gambhir has the highest price but Sachin and Dhoni might still be the highest earning players!

Chennai is the one team that has retained most of its team from previous years as it had developed into a well settled, winning team. Almost the same team with a good addition of all rounder Bravo at a very low price and a backup keeper for Dhoni like it was Parthiv Patel previously..No major surprises.


On day 2, they have really increased their squad strength (highest number) adding a good mix of batsmen, bowlers and all rounders. This team has some of the best genuine all rounders. A wonderful, almost similar looking squad with a few good additions. One major loss of Murlitharan though. Have reached their limit of 10 overseas players.

A very interesting approach. Picked up the most number of players. Has done enough on day one to be able to raise a playing eleven. As one might have thought, picked up Sreesanth and an important one of Murlitharan at 5.1 cr. Jayawardena some what surprisingly going for 6.75 cr. More focus on Indian players. 


After day 2, they end up with 5 Australian players as expected, having Geoff Lawson as the coach. They too have reached the limit of 10 overseas players. Have picked up handy all rounders cheaply. Perera might turn out to be a good pick.

Made the headlines very early with the biggest buys of Gambhir at 11 cr and one of the most prized- Yusuf Pathan at 9.66 cr. Also have Kallis to boast of. A cheap buy of Morgan. Like Delhi, need more bowlers. 


Very less picks on day 2, mainly bowlers. Ryan ten Doeschate supposed to be a good pick.

          Amount remaining -  0.48 mill $ or 2.2 cr

          One of the best teams, again retaining 4 irreplaceable players. Picked up Rohit Sharma as many would have thought but at a shocking 9.2 cr and a very important one of Andrew Symonds. Very smart buys of Jacobs and Franklin compensate Rohit somewhat. Talks about Symonds and Harbhajan being in the same team.


          Not much activity on day 2. Bought three useful Australians. Even Davy Jacobs and James Franklin might turn out to be really good buys. I have been following this auction very closely, every minute of it, specially this team- Mumbai Indians and some of the main players they were interested in but couldn't get were- Gambhir, Zaheer, Taylor, Yuvraj, Kallis, Hopes, B. Mc Cullum, Parthiv, N. Ojha, Paine. Last four being in the hunt of a good wicket keeper which means they hadn't decided one particular. Davy Jacobs might be more useful then they would have thought. 8 of the 12 players they have are overseas players and there can only be 4 in the playing 11. Will need to seriously consider good uncapped players which they have plenty- Rayudu and Satish should be in the squad and in the playing 11 too besides Kulkarni, Rahane, Shah etc

          12. Deepak Chahar - Uncapped seamer
          * For retained players' salary, please read the fourth paragraph at the top.


          Amount remaining 0.8 mill $ or 3.73 cr

          The team worst off so far already having 2 million $ less than other teams due to their legal problems. Has only 6 players so far, a surprising high buy of Botha for 4.37 cr and only 5.52 cr left.


          Just one buy on day 2. Squad has only 8 players so far- the least.


          Some of the players haven't been bought. Some surprising ones being - Ganguly, Gayle, Lara,  Gibbs, Prior, Swann  and Boucher. Reasons could be age factor and some not being current players, availability issues for West Indies and England.


          After Indians, Australians and South Africans have been preferred the most followed by Sri Lanka, not too many from England and West Indies concerning availability issues and not much from Bangladesh either.


          Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders all three have a similar squad with similar amount remaining. Chennai Super Kings and Kochi have the biggest squads so far and Kings 11 Punjab and Deccan Chargers have preferred to save money.


          Now only the uncapped players remain. Big ones there being Rayudu, Satish and Pandey who should go to their previous respective teams as it will be between the franchisees, players and the board for between 10 to 30 lakhs.
