Mumbai making some good buys but the big question is whether their  unknown players will deliver like always. They have the best scouts but with COVID and lack of domestic matches in the last 2 years.... 🤞

 

Tim David has crazy reputation.

8 overs from Jofra & Bumrah will be deadly.

Looks good, meanwhile RCB probably has the worst team, atleast earlier team used to be semi decent only the captaincy was crap, ab to Bhagwaan malik.

 

 

 

Dont understand leaving Chahal out and buying Hasaranga.
If we got Hasaranga for 4/5 crs, it would have made sense. 

 

Buying Hasaranga for 11 crs & not bidding for Chahal dint make much sense.
Hasaranga is good, but not sure 11 cr good.

Lgidi is a decent buy at 50 lakhs. Bases covered for Delhi now

Ngidi and seifert at base price were amazing buys.. DC literally bossed the auction in picking right players at right time.

Sahe is backup. Wade should be starter.

I know, bc with this team we will fight for 7th and 8th position, until some youngster comes across and show a brilliant form and performance, kohli is past his prime and Maxwell is No ABD.

Why wasn't Raina picked? I know he's not in great form but surprised no one went for him. Did all these guys blacklist him intentionally or what

Looks like that, there was definitely something fishy in the way raina came back from dubai and probably all franchisees wanted to send out a message. That said he and ishant sharma priced themselves in oblivion with 2 cr base price both shoukd have kept 75 lacs as base price and may have got some bids.

 

Lucknow and Gujrat have really done well for first timers.

The only thought process could have been that he can bowl near good as Chahal and get few runs too, but 11 cr is a joke no matter how you look at it. Many players got way too much then what they are worth. This mega auction really needs to stop or each team shoukd be allowed to keep half the team. Though seeing the team rcb has picked I wish there was a mega auction next year itself.

Yeah even zampa wasn't picked as he was the first to run away when ipl was happening in India last year.

11 cr is too much. 
No doubt in that. 
Actually IPL will eventually move out of auctions, the teams have to build the teams by themselves.

 

Du plesis n DK are good picks. Reliable. Hope they continue there form.

Screw him. Ran away last time citing covid and spoke sh*t as well.
Someone from Australia should be last person to talk about how covid should be handled.

True.

Zampa went away without giving owners any chance and then when he reached Australia he started bad mouthing IPL. No way any team was gonna touch him. Infact i feel bad more for Adil Rashid who imo is the best leggie right now and still doesn't gets a gig. 

 

RCB f**ked up. That's a terrible line up along with Gujrat who don't have any batting after top 2 except for Wade if they play him. If Kohli flops which is a possibility as he isn't in good headspace there campaign will be over very early. 

 

Raina was never gonna be picked. He played zilch domestic cricket and expecting to be picked up for 2 cr when money is at premium was day dreaming. Plus he was terrible last season. 

 

Lucknow and Punjab have build a really great team and will be my pick for the finals this time. Only Punjab management can screw them up.

Nehra made sure Arjun gets extra 10 lakhs :lol: 

His dad is the richest dad in cricket. 10 lakh must be his weekly pocket money 😛

I believe they pick him on the belief they can nurture him to be someone very good like they did with Bumrah. Plus Ambani and Sachin friendship plays a big part too.. 30L is chump change for them for that.
