42 Players were up for auction in this Second Edition of the IPL Cricket T-20 in India….A lot of them were just not bid for
As was expected,English players,Kevin Pietersen (Base Price of US $ 1.35 m) and Andrew Flintoff (Base Price of US $ 950K) were snapped up for a record US 1.55 Million apiece by Bangalore and Chennai respectively.Last Year Dhoni had a price tag of US $ 1.5 m
What was not expected and has raised serious questions is how M Mortaza,fast bowler from Bangladesh,with a base price of just US $ 50000,was bid for so intensely by Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders,with the latter winning the bid at a very high US $ 600000
Mortaza’s High Bidding defies Logic and is not rational…It just does not make any cricketing sense !…Then what ‘sense’ does it make….your ‘BET’ is as good as mine !
