And the auction is today. The top picks expected are as far as I think:

1. KP (expect DD to go for him)
2. Corey Anderson (expect CSK to bid heavily for him)
3. WI All-rounders

Among Indians:
1. Yuvi
2. Sehwag
3. Irfan

CSK would again try to get back its own men, RR & KXIP would try to save money for their owners' party
Expect DD's fireworks really this time (only in the Auction)

I expect DD will get all the top guys, since they have 60 crores to play with. Looks like DD is really gunning for the title this year.

Correct - Only if the teams on paper would be as good on the field, probably MI would have won everything so far, every edition.

RCB still left to buy bowlers. Not sure why Amit Mishra was paid so much. He has been pathetic in Irani trophy (all RoI bowlers for that matter).
Ross Taylor is unsold, consistency has been a problem with him.

Rest of India lose by innings and 222 runs to Karnataka. Great reserve strength for India :(

Congratulations to the Karnataka team for lifting the Irani trophy for the fifth time A totally one sided affair with Karnataka winning by an innings and 222 runs. Vinay Kumar claimed 10 wickets in the match and Shreyas Gopal claimed a hat-trick. Binny and Gautam laid a solid foundation with their centuries.

That's just great news, congrats to the Karnataka team.

Bad move in my opinion. He is a beast of a player in Asian conditions.

Wrong tournament to drop him from.

I smell a Sri Lankan snub here. None of the Lankans have been sold yet.

Maybe because they didn't vote for the Big 3 proposal.

Azhar Mahmood too is unsold. Finally they have realised that he's a Pakistani.

Murali (a Sri Lankan Tamil) was sold to RCB for 1 cr. Perera sold for 1.6 cr to KXIP.
No one else from Lanka could get a price.

RCB will probably pick up the local boys in the uncapped auction tommorow.

Availability, my friend

SriLanka has a series with England the entire May this year.

I am not sure how the contracts are drafted, any idea if there are any performance linked fees / pay out for these *cricketers*? Or is there a like a penalty to be paid back to the franchises if , hypothetically a batsman does not average more than 20 runs per match?

They are paid the entire amount even if they don't get to play in the 11, case in point being Maxwell for Mumbai Indians last season!
Some amount is deducted i assume if they are not in the squad for certain reason like being away at national duty.

Ashish Nehra bought by CSK for 2cr. They seriously are missing a 'cricket enthusiast' at the auction!
