    Indian Premier League - 2011

    Indian Premier League: IPL 2011 to comprise 74 matches | Cricket News | Indian Premier League 2011 | Cricinfo.com

    Pathetic.

    Just 5 days gap between WC and the IPL. What rubbish calendar is that. A holes.

    The ten IPL franchises will be divided into two groups of five each for the fourth season of the competition in 2011, which has been scaled down to 74 matches from the 94 proposed under the old format. Apart from changing the tournament's format at a meeting in Mumbai, the league's governing council also decided that the franchises would be able to retain four players in their squads - a maximum of three Indians and two foreign players - while the rest would go into the auction scheduled for November. The tournament will begin five days after the 2011 World Cup final on April 2.

    In the new format, each team will play the other four in its group home and away, which means the league stage will comprise 40 matches. The three top teams from each group will then play in another round of home-and-away matches, which will comprise 30 games, followed by semi-finals, a third-place playoff and a final.

    The franchises' spending power for the season has been capped at $9 million.
    4 players? What rubbish... Pretty sure Mumbai will retain Malinga, Pollard and Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan..

    Most probably will be the last IPL I will take interest in... and only if Tendulkar plays.

    FFS, 74 matches. I have no idea why you cannot follow the first round with semi finals and finals from the top two in each group.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    The franchise and the player it wishes to retain must come to a mutual agreement regarding the retention and the fee for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. However, irrespective of the actual fee agreed upon by the franchise and the player, the franchise's salary cap will be reduced by the following for each player retained:

    $1.8 million per year for the first player retained
    $1.3 million per year for the second player retained
    $900,000 per year for the third player retained
    $500,000 per year for the fourth player retained
    Therefore, if a franchise decides to retain four players, it will be charged $4.5 million per year and will have only $4.5 million to spend on other players, compared to the $9 million available to a franchise that retains no one. The size of the squad is capped at 30 players.
    So now theres a 'penalty' to pay if you decide to keep the players you bid so hard for a couple of seasons ago? It's ridiculous imo. Entire squads will be shuffled and may not even look remotely the same anymore.

    I'm definitely not looking forward to watching a MI game where I won't see Harbhajan, Tiwary, Zaheer, Malinga, Sachin, Dhawan, Bravo, Pollard and the various others.

    This whole new players auction is absurd.

    Will any Pakistani players get selected this time around?

    Will be interesting to see what happens without Modi. Corruption aside, he ran it very well.

    Just wondering, were team owners notified of this new scheme prior to buying players in the previous auctions?

    The question is will you watch the games without doubt creeping in if they play?

    The IPL will disappear up its own arse in a couple of seasons or so.

    You're stereotyping.

    I didn't mean to say everyone. For instance, Amir has got a contract with KKR pending approval if I am not wrong. What then?

    So ban the few players involved, why the rest of the Pakistani players?

    Surely the rights to resigning a player to your franchise would have a massive impact on the prices that you are willing to bid for players. Making up the rules ad-hoc at this stage about how many players you get to keep just seems unfair, and doesn't allow the franchises to conduct their business in a professional manner.

    Because even if honest players drop a catch people would immediately get suspicious. Not a good thing but that is how I see this playing out. And frankly the tournament does not need this bad feeling at all. We did just fine for the past couple of seasons without them. Wouldn't mind it if the scandal reaches an end and the clean players are allowed to play.

    PS: onscreen keyboard is a bitch.
