    Champions League : Taylor , Oram and Napier to play for IPL franchises?

    IPL has first call on top Kiwis - cricket - sport | Stuff.co.nz

    Not concerned about Napier as he was a ring in, but Oram and Taylor? Was sure last year that it was the players choice?

    IPL franchise reserves first right of call.

    Oram has already been released by Csk I think.

    Taylor will be retained by Brc.

    I thought it was the player's call but if the player chose IPL they would compensate or something?

    Or is this put in the player's contract, rather than a rule? If it's in the player's contract, not the IPL's fault. The player signs the thing.

    Napier didn't even get close to playing a game for Mumbai. Think he left India a week or so before the IPL finished as well. No problem with Mumbai taking first dibs on players who represented them but as Napier has no chance of getting in their first eleven, then he should represent Central Districts.

    TBH ..the counties get paid a lot if they lose a player to IPL...so not sure if they will be happier with the player choosing IPL or not...

    Yes but you know they will keep him so he doesn't play for the opposition.

    If he were such a player who had to be prevented from turning out for the opposition, he wouldn't have been released by them during the IPL.

    How does that work!?? Unless it's a clause in their IPL contract, can't see how it'd be justifiable otherwise.

    Edit: Never mind. Just read the article posted and saw that it is in their contract.

    Taylor was interviewed about 2 months ago on breakfast radio in NZ and clearly stated that he wanted to play for CD above all other teams. It stinks if he has to play for a team which isn't his first choice.

    Napier may well play for Essex as the county season is still ongoing, he seems to feel a lot of loyalty to them.
