    I thought Pankaj Singh would get picked up. Probably Lee too. Milne, Cummins would be fodder and a waste of an international slot.

    What more does Pankaj Singh need to do, to get a place in an IPL side or the national side? Bribe a selector, like Abhijeet Kale? Leave Rajasthan, whom the BCCI hate with a passion? Give up cricket and play hockey? It's a pity when in a mega auction for an Indian domestic event, India's single best seam bowler gets no takers at all.

    What's sad is that Ishant got picked up,unadc*nt received 2.8 crore(probably would buy some food with that),even Nehra was bought

    Vinay Kumar Got bought too! he gave away a century !

    I can understand Vinay Kumar getting bought, after he won the Irani Trophy game against Rest Of India with a ten-wicket haul. Nehra, Ishant and Unadkat were sold at far more than they were worth.

    Maybe Pankaj Singh can join that party of brigands running Delhi, and regularly protest on the streets for his inclusion in the national team.

    You could make a team of the unsold players that could win the comp. I didn't follow much of todays auction but I also presume Ryder went unsold?

    Indian top players are more valuable because they compete for 7 spots in the team while overseas players have only 4 spots.

    KKR have this problem where Shakib Al Hassan has to sit out while Rajat Bhatia gets every game
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    Also Jacques Kallis. He's been promoted as their frontline all-rounder even when his T20 bowling is poor, his batting lacks the strike rate and he's not even a top T20/T20I player. Surely Shakib could play in place of him.

    Best possible KKR XI:
    • Uthappa
    • Gambhir
    • Lynn
    • Shakib (SLA)
    • Manish Pandey
    • Debabrata (WK?)
    • SA Yadav
    • Vinay Kumar (RM)
    • Narine (OB)
    • Morne (RF)
    • Umesh Yadav (RFM)
    Still looks like a fruit salad team.

    That four overseas players are not enough is not an excuse to field a weak team or play poor cricket. Teams from other leagues manage with only two overseas players, or even one. Yet, we've seen several teams compete neck and neck with IPL franchises, and a few have even got the better of them.

    I wonder how much of Ryder's off field issues contributed to him not being sold.

    Of course they would. You reckon he hasn't been having a whale of a time over there before? Teams talk amongst each other.

    In other news, ex-employees of now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines, owned by RCB Boss Vijay Mallya, have written an open letter to Yuvraj Singh to not play for Mallya in the IPL. I support that. It's not funny when you're not paid for several months, but the boss can pay multiple times the amount to a cricketer who's in and out of active cricket.
