IPL auction: WI, Aus stars in focus but youngsters set to be top draws

The focus will be on swords in West Indies and Australia, but some of the lesser-known youngsters may pull out with big deals at the IPL Player Auction in Kolkata on Thursday, as franchises are expected to limit their spending.The thirteenth edition of the lucrative franchise league will have additional significance because 2020 is the year of the T20 World Cup.With 14 years and 350 days, Noor Ahmed from Afghanistan has become the youngest name in the auction group. The left-arm chinaman, with a base price of Rs 30 lakh, can join players such as Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi to play in the prominent Super League.Noor has been impressive in the recently-launched U19 series against India, where he picked up nine wickets.Among the young Indians, the first player in Mumbai, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Priyam Garg, who lead the U-19 World Cup team in India, will be watched with the spinning of Tamil Nadu, the left arm Tamil Nadu, R Sai Kishore pacemaker from Bengal, Ishan Porel. All have a base price of Rs 20 lakh.For the stars, Shimron Hetmyer, the 22-year-old West Indies hitter who was launched by Royal Challengers Bangalore before the auction, already presented himself with a century from 85 balls in the first ODI vs India in Chennai.The Guyanese southpaw, who has a base price of Rs. 50 lakh, scored the most in the previous T20I series: 120 in three games with a hit rate of 151.89.After buying him at a whopping price of Rs. 4.2 crore last year, Royal Challengers Bangalore allowed batsmen to attack in 2019 IPL.But with three cards available for the right to match, RCB can still exercise the option to keep the player in the model.However, with a larger portfolio, other franchises will target Hetmyer at the first-time auction in Kolkata.Kesrick Williams, from the West Indies, is also expected to set a medium rhythm, which had upset the captain of India Virat Kohli as he is in the T20 International series, offering an intense offer at a base price of Rs 50 lakh.The limited money in a portfolio of most franchises may mean that the bid will not be particularly aggressive for those with a higher base rate.The auction includes five Australians: Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell. The five, along with South Africa's Del Steyn and Sri Lanka Angelo Matthews, are in the top group of Rs. 2 crores.Australian cricket players participating in the World Cup chose not to participate in the 2019 auction, but this time they registered their names keeping in mind the T20 World Cup at home in October.While Mitchell Starc has chosen not to participate this year, it is very likely that Maxwell, Cummins, Hazlewood and Lyn would be considered top players.After hopping two years in a row, Cummins can be a good deal. He had an impressive season for 2017 with 15 wickets at a strike rate of 18.46.However, it remains to be seen how Del Steen and Angelo Matthews will do at a high base price of Rs 2 crore.Steyn was not sold at the previous IPL auction, but Royal Cha Challengers Bangalore agreed to replace Nathan Coulter-Nile. This was not good, as he had an injury that excluded him from the World Cup.Upon entering the auction, RCB off-loaded Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, and Colin de Grandhomme along with nine other players. They are probably the busiest among the teams to fill 10-12 spaces.With the likes of Tim Southee, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazelwood at stake, it will be interesting to see how they'll do it with Rs. 27.90 crore in their portfolio.Among the Indians, Robin Uthappa, former Kolkata Knight Riders vice-captain, who was released by his winning team at IPL, maintained his base price at Rs. 1.5 crores.Currently leading Kerala state on the national circuit, Uthappa has recorded 139 runs in six T20 national championships for Mushtaq Ali Trophy, and it remains to be seen whether the 34-year-old has found any takers.KKR also released Piyush Chawla, and he is among the four bowlers who collected 150 wickets in IPL. The leg-spinner fixture, in addition to the Yusuf Pathan, bears a price tag of Rs 1 crore.Indian test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma Vihari, at a base price of Rs 50 lakh, also enter the tender area. Pujara was not sold last year, while Vihari was released by Delhi Capitals.As for the teams, Kings XI Punjab, who is aiming for an elusive title, has the most money to brag about, Rs. 42.70 crore, and is expected to make an extensive offer.With its rocky top arrangement, KXIP looks very dependent on Mohammed Shami as a quick bowling option. They can search for a spinner to fill the void left by Captain R Ashwin's exit.Funds with franchises:CSK: Rs 14.60 crore, Delhi Capitals: Rs 27.85 crore, KXIP: Rs 42.70 crore, KKR: Rs 35.65 crore, MI: Rs 13.05 crore, RR: Rs 28.90 crore, RCB: Rs 27.90 crore, SRH: Rs 17 crore.Read More: Vivo IPL 2020 Schedule: Full Schedule Of VIVO IPL 2020,IPL Schedule,Time Table,Fixture,Team Squad,Dates,Venues,Point Table,Live Match,Tickets

Aussie players made merry, raking in the big bucks at the IPL 2020 players’ auction in Kolkata on Thursday. In a fierce competition between eight franchises, struggling to collect the best possible teams, Australians emerged as the most dominant number.Of the 338 players who fell under the hammer, 62 were sold at the auction table in Kolkata. The Eight franchises combined spent Rs 140.3 crore with Australian cricketers such as Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell attracting big deals.In the list of the most expensive five players at the auction, three were Australians.Below is a list of the five major purchases at the IPL 2020 Auction.Pat Cummins (Bought by KKR for Rs 15.50 Crore)Pacer Pat Cummins was the subject of the conversation in the city, as he became the most expensive foreign purchase in the history of IPL. Cummins got a massive offer of Rs. 15.50 crore from twice-winner Kolkata Knight Riders when they broke the previous record for Ben Stokes, which Rising Pune Supergiant bought for Rs. 14.5 crore at the 2017 auction. After a fierce three-way war of rivalries, KKR surpassed Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore to buy the number one test bowler in the world.Cummins was part of the Kolkata team in 2014 and 2015 and played for the last time in the Delhi Capital in 2017. The Mumbai Indians picked him up in the following season, but was excluded with a back injury."I thought he was the best player of the auction as a cricketer, he's grown, his body has become robust. He is now the vice-captain of the Australia cricket team, which is a mark of his development. Wonderful to secure a world-class player," said Brendon McCallum, KKR coach after buying Cummins.Glenn Maxwell (Bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 10.75 Crore)Glenn Maxwell's international break didn't bother because of the mental health difficulties, as they struggled to buy expensive offroads. It ended up with Maxwell receiving Rs. 10.75 crore, becoming the second most expensive purchase at the auction and would represent KingsXI Punjab in the next 2020 IPL release. Maxwell recently returned from break and is currently playing with the stars of Melbourne in the Big Bash League.Chris Morris (Bought by RCB for Rs 10 Crore)In one of the great surprises of the auction, the South African realist Chris Morris was taken over by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a large sum of Rs 10 crore. With a base price of Rs 1.5 crore, Morris made big profits, as the franchises were looking for a powerful and impressive all-rounder. Rajasthan Royals showed initial interest in buying Morris, but then RCB and Kings XI Punjab got into a bidding war when RR remained behind. When the numbers suddenly increased, the Mumbai Indians also threw their hat into the ring, but the RCB finally packed Morris for a whopping sum of Rs 10 crore.Sheldon Cottrell (Bought by Kings Xi Punjab for Rs 8.5 Crore)The major cricket show "Cottrell Salute" will feature in the next release, as the left pacemaker attracted first-time buyers at IPL. Astonishing performance in the shortest format for Windies helped him catch the attention of the franchise when they went to the auction war. Finally, the Kings XI Punjab won a three-way battle that also included the Delhi Capitals and the Rajasthan Royals. The Punjab-based franchise had to spend Rs 8.5 crore to purchase the Cottrell, making him the fourth-highest auction purchase."Very happy to have Cottrell on board," said  Ness Wadia, owner at KXIP.Nathan Coulter-Nile (Bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 8 Crore)Australian Nathan Coulter-Nile completed the list of the five main purchases at the IPL 2020 auction, after Indian defenders Mumbai Indians purchased him for Rs. 8 crores. In a fierce battle with runner-up Chennai Super Kings last year, MI had to pay a large sum to take over Western Australian. After a great international year followed by some good performances in the domestic circuit, Coulter-Nile caught the headlines at the auction.Read More: Vivo IPL 2020 Schedule: Full Schedule Of VIVO IPL 2020

RR vs SRH Dream11 IPL 2020 Prediction, Playing 11In another high-effort Indian Premier League match on Great Thursday, Rajasthan Royals Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Match No. 40. The royals led by Steve Smith are sixth in the standings with eight points and still have little chance to advance to the next round. On the other hand, SRH is one point six points below it and thus has four points to memorize. RR failed to shoot Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His tactic of demoting Jos Butler to fifth, however, managed to finish the match unbeaten at 70 and lead the team to victory. Ben Stokes, Sanjo Samson and Robin Uthapa should provide a good start, while the responsibility for turning them falls to Butler and Smith. Samson has been in decline since the first two games of the season and will be looking to improve his performance.RR captain Guofra Archer (39 wickets from 31 matches) will once again lead the reins and seek support from Stokes, who has yet to make a difference. The other players, Tiwatia, Shrias Gopal, Ankit Rajput and Kartik Tiyagi were too cheap for the ball against CSK. On the other hand, SRH is on the verge of losing a tipping point, and winning alone is what keeps them optimistic. The 2016 champions are based largely on the top four: Johnny Burstow, Warner, Manish Bundy and Ken Williamson. They still couldn't find a finisher in their middle order. It was this factor, along with Williamson's injury, that drove Warner down the standings in his previous match against the Kolkata Knight Riders. He ended up pushing the match into super.RR vs SRH Pitch And Toss ReportWith first-round average scores of 174, the Dubai International Cricket Stadium saw its fair share of excitement in IPL 2020. The Bolins succeeded in this place, with enough movement available off the field on the roof to keep them interested.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is developing a T20 cricket league like the Indian Premier League (IPL). BCCI Secretary Jay Shah recently spoke about the plans of the Indian Cricket Board to host the T20 tournament for cricketers in India in the future.Many of the Indian female players trade in the T20 women's leagues around the world and receive accolades for their outstanding performance. Eight Indian female players were part of the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) in Australia this year, with India's T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur winning the women's best player award in the series.Harmanpreet scored 399 points and took 15 wickets in the season to win the Player of the Tournament award. Smriti Mandana, Chavali Verma and Jemima Rodriguez also impressed the league with their bravery. As women's cricket continues to rise, Shah has reassured BCCI fans that the T20 league will soon start as a women's IPL.BCCI is already organizing the Women's T20 Challenge, which is a short tournament held during one season of the IPL. However, there are only two teams in the tournament and it still has to rise to the next level as more players and teams are introduced.“The women’s T20 challenge has generated a lot of interest from fans and it is an encouraging sign. We all want a league similar to the IWC, but it is not just about getting three or four teams together and announcing the women’s cricket league,” Shah said in an interview with Hindustan Times. Launch of the IPL Women's League.“Many factors come into play, such as a dedicated window, availability of international stars, bilateral commitments from member boards, to name a few. We are exploring all our options and hosting a similar league for our players. We are working towards the future.”Shah spoke about how Harmanpreet and Mandana have been very vocal about introducing a league like IPL to female cricketers in the country. He said such tournaments will help the Indian players to improve a lot as they will have the opportunity to walk side by side with some of the best cricketers in the world."Players like Smriti Mandana and Harmanpreet Kaur have expressed their views on helping India change the T20 league and the standard of play in India," he added.“Having a league like IPL will definitely benefit our cricketers as they will have the opportunity to play with global superstars. Apart from Smriti and Harmanpreet, other female cricketers of the Indian team have done well in leagues like The Hundred and WBBL. Deepti Sharma, Jemima Rodriguez, and Cavalli Verma, and Poonam Yadav are highly sought-after athletes and role models in India. Shah said his tenure would definitely help him gain confidence.Also Read - Sourav Ganguly admitted hospital after testing positive for COVID-19
