    Quentin Dekock should be retained by Sunrisers,so that would have been my first or second pick.

    Nah Sunrisers will keep him after his season,probably release Sangakjarra who has had 3 poor IPL seasons.

    i have no idea who's playing for whoever so I don't give a crap. I liked it when Baz was playing for Kolkata and Shah Rukh Khan was doing his best impressions of a straight man, but now I really don't care

    Hard 1 may come up later with it.
    With so many players 36 plus hard to see some retained,and their form is tapering off.
    Hamid Hassan a surprise 1.

    Sehwag puzzle unsolved; Quinton De Kock, Corey Anderson on IPL teams' wish-list
    Dehli unlikely to keep Viru,IPL sides to name 5 players by January 10.
    Will give my picks later.
    Article suggests Dekock best pick.

    From the Big Bash, I've picked 7 players who I think would be good additions to any IPL franchise at bargin basement price.

    Brad Hogg
    Nathan Rimmington
    Jackson Bird
    Ben Laughlin
    Michael Klinger
    Chris Lynn
    Ben Dunk

    So I would be targeting some of these players at minimum cost and then spending more on the bigger names.

    I think Lynn is on the Sunrisers books,whether they retain them in their 5,or bid for him at the auction is another thing.Same Laughlin on Chennais' books.
    Remember if a IPL team bids for a player another IPL team had,they can match the offer in the auction and keep them.Brad Hogg is on Rajistan's books but with 3 year contracts i doubt he will be signed,Nathan Lyon?
    Klinger was a flop in his 2 seasons,and Rimmo only got 1 game.

    Where are all the Indians?

    For KKR, I'd like to have a bowling attack of Shami Ahmed, Varun Aaron, LR Shukla, Shakib and Narine, with Basanth Mohanty and Ajay Yadav backing up. It's up to them to put together a proper batting lineup. Yusuf Pathan's stay at KKR is finished, but if they continue to hang on to Kallis, they won't stand a chance of making the knockouts, let alone winning the Trophy. They need to get Tendo back.

    I'm not too much in love with the Chennai team, as it seems to have become a Dhoni/Srini private club. What they do is entirely up to them, and hopefully more TN players who don't work in India Cements will play. I hope Baba Aparajith and Malolan play, and they get Balaji back.

    Rajasthan, the state the BCCI loves to hate, can put together a bowling attack of Umesh, Pankaj Singh, Watson, Faulkner, Iqbal Abdulla and Ashok Menaria. Batsman Robin Bist should figure in their playing XI, given his form in the Ranji Trophy.

    For Mumbai, seeing them stuck with Pollard and Harbhajan is disappointing. Malinga-Johnson-Dhawal-Harbhajan-Ojha is the best bowling combination for them. They can pick up Maharashtra's Kedar and Harshad for their middle-order. They may also have to let go of Dwayne Smith, if they are stuck with Pollard, because they have as many as seven bowling options- they'll need to firm up their batting, with an already strong bowling lineup, instead of weakening their bowling with Pollard and Smith.
