I would probably bid on Rohrer and Coulter-Nile and perhaps a min bid on Burns. I would be so surprised if Harris, Maddinson or Copeland get a bid.
A little surprised that Ravi Rampaul was bought for $290,000.
I mean where is now? Is he injured or can't make the West Indies best ODI XI?
Dirk Nannes $600,000 has done very well for himself, he is a top bowler and hopefully he gets a bit more support compared to at the Thunder.
Bollinger will be gutted, I don't think I would have bid on him though.
Guptill unsold at 100k while a guy who no-one had heard of until a week ago breaks 1 mill. Maxwell sure knows timing.
There have been some really bad buys, and misses imo. Aussies seem to be making bank this auction, and for Maxwell to go for 1 million is crazy...would of been less surprised to see him be unsold for 20k. As much as I think Faulkner, Henriques and Pomersbach are decent players, they all went for way above their worth. The best buys have been Ryder and McCullum. Biggest misses for me are Dananjaya, Phangiso and de Kock, with all three only going at 20k, they were all absolute bargains.
Reckon Ryder was over priced. Looks absolute trash these days from the vision I've seen.
Definitely figured he'd go for around the 400K mark.
Also, don't think NcCullum is that great a buy. He will hardly play IMO.
Poor guppy, turned down the ipl cash last year to focus on his intl career and now the ipl clubs won't touch him despite the fact that he hit a match winning t20 century a month ago.
