    Default IPL auction: Sammy to debut as Ponting, Clarke get top base price

    They are not exactly Twenty20 stars, but retired Australia skipper Ricky Ponting and his successor Michael Clarke have attracted the highest base price of $400,000 (approx Rs 2.1 crore) among the 101 names who will go under the hammer in the IPL players' auction, in Chennai, on Sunday.


    There are four marquee players in the list, the other two being South Africa all-rounder Johan Botha and out-of-favour India pacer R P Singh, whose base price is pegged at $100,000 (Rs 53.3 lakh).

    Singh was bought by Mumbai Indians last year for $600,000, but after a dismal show of 10 wickets from 11 matches was released by the franchise.

    While Clarke was previously with Pune Warriors Indians, Ponting played for Kolkata Knight Riders last season.

    Botha, on the other hand, has attracted a base price of $300,000 (Rs 1.6 crore).
    The list includes seven Indians, two Englishmen and Irish all-rounder Kevin O'Brien.
    Even though Clarke and Ponting have attracted the highest base price, their T20 credentials are not exactly exciting.
    Clarke retired from the format a couple of years ago, while the 38-year-old Ponting did not quite click with his initial franchise, Kolkata Knight Riders.
    Darren Sammy, who captained the West Indies in their World Twenty20 Championship triumph last year, is among the first-timers up for sale. His base price is set at $100,000.

    Among other international players, England's Matt Prior and Ravi Bopara both of whom went unsold last season, have a base price of $100,000 and $ 200,000 (Rs 1.06 crore).

    The auction is expected to be a low-key affair owing to lack of star players in the list.
    "Apart from filling in certain small gaps, I do not see any big action happening this time around. Also, with the player contracts expiring after the 2013 season, it would be difficult to place your bets on any big buys," a franchise official was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

    Default IPL auction: Pak players snubbed again

    Considered pariahs by the Indian Premier League since 2008, Pakistani cricketers were once again left out of the list of players to be auctioned for the event's sixth edition in April-May.


    The 101-strong list of players, to be auctioned on Sunday, does not feature a single Pakistani player despite the resumption of bilateral cricket ties between the two neighbours in December last year.
    Pakistani players have been ignored by IPL since the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks . Even though the Pakistan Cricket Board has been pushing for their inclusion, the efforts have not paid off even this year.

    And it has got nothing to do with the recent tension that gripped the Line of Control earlier this month after an Indian soldier was beheaded during a violation of the ceasefire.

    The move to keep Pakistani players out was initiated in December last year even though BCCI had hinted about having them for the auction at least.
    The BCCI's apprehension stemmed from the fear of controversies given that having sportspersons from across the border remains a sensitive matter in India.
    "It is for the franchises to decide their teams. The franchises invest a lot of money and they do not want to take risk by including Pakistani players. The idea is to play it safe", a top IPL official said.
    Recently, Pakistani hockey players were sent back from the Hockey India League while the women cricketers from the country, who are here for the World Cup, were shifted from Mumbai to Cuttack following protests by the Shiv Sena

    Default Sachin Tendulkar to be Mumbai Indians captain

    Sachin Tendulkar is to be re-instated as captain of Mumbai Indians ahead of IPL 2013 which starts on April 3.

    Harbhajan Singh has reportedly quit the captaincy and there were reports that Rohit Sharma would take over in his place.

    Sachin was tha captain of Mumbai Indians for the first three seasons of the IPL since its inception in 2008. Harbhajan took over as skipper in 2011 after Sachin handed over the reins. The same year Harbhajan led the team to victory in the Champions League T20 and also captained them in IPL 5.

    This is one in a series of recent changes for the franchisee. Anil Kumble was also roped in recently as the chief mentor with John Wright being appointed as head coach.

    Default Never seen this much money in life, says Chris Morris on stunning IPL deal

    The bidding war that his name triggered at the IPL players auction left Chris Morris' head spinning and the South African all-rounder conceded that he has never seen the kind of money he would now be drawing.

    "I have never in my life seen this much money," said Morris, who was bought for a whopping USD 625,000 (Rs 3.3 crore) by the Chennai Super Kings, 31 times more than his base price of USD 20,000.

    Morris was sought by the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore as well but they were outbid by CSK at the auction in Chennai where only 37 of the 108 players in fray managed to find buyers.

    Morris followed the auction on his ipad and was amazed to see the interest in him.

    "Neil McKenzie had a little joke with me when it got to (USD) 450,000 but nobody could really believe what was happening," Morris told 'ESPN Cricinfo'.

    In rands, the 25-year-old's earnings are now 5.5 million and he has no clue how to spend the money except for splurging some of it on his parents.

    "I honestly don't know. I suppose one of the things I'd like to do is give my parents anything they should like and spoil them a little bit," he said.

    Morris was the leading wicket-taker for his domestic team Lions in the national T20 competition last season. He was spotted by CSK coach Stephen Fleming during the Champions League Twenty20 in the same year.

    "He (Fleming) came and had a chat to me afterwards and said he was impressed with the way I bowled. So I guess that was a big platform for me," Morris said.

    "Fleming was one of my heroes as a schoolboy, so it will be an honour to be around him. And obviously with Faf (du Plessis) and Albie (Morkel) playing there, it's going to be quite fun," he said.

    Talking about the IPL, Morris said he can't wait to head to Chennai.

    "I've heard it's pretty hot. But I've heard stories from people like Faf about how everyone is cricket-crazy, and I really just want to experience the vibe there," he said.

    Morris is currently nursing a niggle but hopes to be fit soon.

    "That quad injury was a real eye opener for me. I realised how quickly things can change in a career," he said.

    "I've been working hard with the physiotherapist on my rehab processes and on getting my body right, and at the moment I am feeling good and ready to play," he added.
