So after this tournament and when the next IPL comes around, who do you think will have increased/decreased in value because of their performances in the 20-20 WC?
Wasn't Umar Gul one of the cheaper players after being the best bowler in the last WC? Could it be different this time?
You'd bloody well hope so, given he has arguably been the best bowler in this tournament.
Parnell will make some money while Dilshan might break a few records.
Shake up is after next IPL, I believe. Unless there's a dramatic turn around in the performances of some of the players next year, looks like:
Going south: Ishant, Uthappa, Kaif (unless KKR decide to beef up their Indian batting), Flintoff,
Going up: Kumble, Hayden, Gilchrist, Warne, Yuvraj, Yusuf, Irfan, Dilshan, DeVilliers, RP,
Based on T20 WC performance.
Up: van der Merwe, Gul, Mendis, Bravo, Afridi, Dilshan, AB, Younis Khan
Down: Morkel, Oram, Collingwood, Dhoni, Smith
New names: Simmons, Parnell, Udana, McCullum
would be interesting how much razzaq fetches if hes allowed in
Most of the blokes who are curretnly playing in the IPL already have 3 year contracts with their respective franchises, so most of these blokes get the same amount of money during the period of their contract, so fluctuations in form won't really effect their salaries for now.
Though likes of Parnell, Guptill, Afridi, Gul, Mohd.Amir, and other such blokes, who don't have a contract with the IPL yet, are set to rake in lots of money.
Indian public hardly cares for such trivialities. There is a huge section of fans here who cheer for Pakistan when they play some other country than India (yours truly included).The decision was completely political and need not necessarily reflect the Indian public's attitude towards Pakistani cricket.
