Clarke, Ponting top IPL auction list

Jan 31 2013, 6:58am CST | by

Chennai, Jan 31 (IANS) Australia captain Michael Clarke and former captain Ricky Ponting attracted the highest base price in the list of 101 players that feature in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) player auction to be held here Sunday.

Chennai, Jan 31 — Australia captain Michael Clarke and former captain Ricky Ponting attracted the highest base price in the list of 101 players that feature in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) player auction to be held here Sunday.

The Australian duo will go under the hammer with highest reserve price of $400,000 (approx Rs.2 crore).

Clarke played for Pune Warriors India in IPL 2012 after they bought him on a one-year contract outside of the auction. Ponting was part of the inaugural IPL season, in 2008, playing for Kolkata Knight Riders. He was released by the franchise in 2010.

Along with the two Australians, South African all-rounder Johan Botha ($300,000) and Indian medium pacer RP Singh ($100,000) form the list of four marquee players.

West Indies' World Twenty20 2012 winning captain Darren Sammy will feature in the player auction for the first time with a reserve price of $100,000.

The list of 101 players feature seven Indians, including Mumbai's Ranji Trophy winning all-rounder Abhishek Nayar ($100,000), who has been released by Kings XI Punjab.

Nayar's Mumbai team-mate Wasim Jaffer, who scored a century in the Ranji Trophy final, is also on the list at a reserve price of $50,000.

Pacers Sudeep Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat, Pankaj Singh and Manpreet Gony are the remaining Indians to go under the hammer.

On the list that is dominated by the South Africans, Sri Lankans and the Australians, Ireland's all-rounder Kevin O'Brien is the lone representative of the associate countries.

"Taxi for Cook!" Yes, England's humiliating nine-wicket defeat to India has confirmed it's time for Alastair Cook to catch a cab for a one-way journey into ODI retirement. Indeed, Graeme Swann, like a Shakespearean villain, put the issue into the mainstream a few days ago, stabbing his former colleague and good friend in the back with a very public call for his head. But the sheer futility of this latest loss should have the En ...

Angelo Mathews: World Cricket's Batsman of the Month, August 2014

Sep 1 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Angelo Mathews was identified as a future captain and a long-term cornerstone of Sri Lankan cricket well before his ascension into the game's upper echelon of stars, and expectation has closely followed him on his journey to this point. Mathews is wonderfully talented in both disciplines and a natural leader, and the 27-year-old's bolt to the pinnacle of the game in 2014 has been another case of perfect timing for Sri Lanka, with Mahela Jayawardene reti ...
