    Corey Anderson's IPL contract - guess the bid game

    Before we get too excited let's see how he does for the remaining games. if he manages a few 50s then a half mil contract isn't off the cards

    Without guessing the price, I'm certain he'll be picked up based on that one amazing innings in the same way Richard Levi was.

    IIRC Zinzan is correct that several flukes have been picked up.

    So probably something like $800,000, given he can bowl too.
    5-0

    It all depends on whether there is a bidding war, and IPL schedule vs NZ schedule.

    I could see it being anywhere from 200,000 to close to a million.

    If India skittle him easily then he might not even get one.

    If Glenn ****ing Maxwell can go for a mill based on an international high score of 50 odd (I think at the time) then god knows how much this fella will go for now.

    It'll depend on how he does vs. India. But unless he completely loses form, he should get a decent contract at the very least. IPL is in its infancy - the prices that players go for are still random - the analysis and valuing of players has not become professional like other leagues yet.

    He's going to do a Guptill and opt out in order to go play county cricket.

    Jokes aside, one substantial innings against India and a couple of cameos before the auction and I can easily see him getting over $1mill. Maxwell went for that on the basis of one innings and Anderson now > Maxwell then plus the sub continent suits Anderson's play style perfectly.

    What I like about it is that he'd played and had good success at test cricket before this happened.

    Might not have gotten a game for tests if he had've done this first. People might have thought he was too aggressive. Just a comment.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yeah, it's an interesting thought. I'm not sure how good his first class record was at the time, but Australia picking Warner for Tests after he was such a hit in t20s caused a little bit of a stir. And then there's Glenn Maxwell, but that's just straight up a bad selection

    We know which team splurges in auctions like they'll never run empty. But I do hope that doesn't happen, and he goes for a sensible price. IPL franchises bid big for overseas players, and then are compelled to promote them and play them up front at the expense of domestic talent, which reduces the relevance of the IPL in the scene.

    They play them because they're better than the Indian players.

    Besides that, the IPL want to have an international window so surely to get that they've got to show that it's more of an international competition than a domestic one.
