    Which England players are going to the IPL?

    Morgan and Pieterson so far,but Flower not keen on it.
    Would not be good if Stokes,Broad,Anderson and others go.







    Will that effect their being picked?

    Wonder if Flower will say no to Pieterson and Morgan,really Morgan who is being touted for the One day side and Test captaincy is shooting himself in the foot.
    Middlesex hardly see him,if i we're them i'd release him not worth the cash.

    Buttler's obviously made for the format, but I suspect he'll also be burnishing his first class credentials rather than chasing the Rupee.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Morgan would do well to play a few FC games, they'd love him in the test side if he scored a few for middx early doors

    Trouble with Morgs is that his technique has so many moving parts when he's not in prime nick he's a walking wicket.

    I hope Morgan plays IPL, not a test player and even with our current troubles he would be a backward step in the test side.

    You what? Morgan is being touted for the One Day side? He's already in there as a key player.

    Morgan being touted for the Test captaincy? On what planet?

    Other way round presumably. Test side, ODI captaincy.

    Players association specifically made a deal with ECB, so that more players can participate in IPL. But ECB is now pretty much blackballing them through flower. Its just stupid, I do hope most of them do go, but don't see anyone with realistic ambitions to be selected in test side will go.

    @Eoin16: I would like to thank @IPL for accepting my request to withdraw from this years auction. Good luck with the tournament.

    Morgan obv had some word that he's a contender for a recall to the test squad.

    My thoughts exactly on hearing the news. A few county runs and he's in with KP gone you'd think

    Yep, almost certain I would say.

    Really looking forward to the county season now, lets hope we actually get some cricket.
