tomorrow,february 6,2009 is a big day in IPL. the auctions are taking place for the second season and england players are available this time.
the 2 big names are andrew flintoff and kevin pietersen.but the question is who will select these 2 players in their team ?
well lets c which team will be interested in byuing this players ?
i dont think kolkata will kp him as they already have some good foreign players like ponting,mcclum,hussey,gayle,etc.so no place for a batsman and especially for whom who is available for only 15 days. for kkr flintoff can be a better option because it is almost confirmed that pakistani players wont be playing in this ipl season.so they will loose akhtar and gul,who are very good bowlers.they have ishant sharma in the team but still needs 1 more good bowler so they might go for fredddie.but the problem is dada and flintoff dont share good relationship with each other.
rajasthan royals can go for kp. especially shane warne can force the team management to buy this south african born british cricketer.
mumbai indians is a team which might go for one of these players as in the bating department,apart from jayasurya they dont have quality foreign batsman.
royal challangers is the team which will try to buy both these players.but the remaining money wont allow that. we all know that the their last season's performence frustrated the flamboyant team owner mr.vijay mallya so he would be very keen to do so. and they really need such t20 kind of players.
deccan charger's bowling department is no so strong.they can try to get flintoff.
i dont think chennai can buy flintoff as he is an al rounder. but i dont think they will be interested in KP..
delhi might go for flintoff as its not yet confirmed that if mcgrath is playing this time or not
king 11 punjab also wont be that much interested in getting these two players at this time as they are looking a balanced side at the moment..
so lets keep the fingers crossed and wait for the auctions.
