IPL auction: Yuvraj Singh, Shane Watson in focus as new teams enter fray

first_imgThe dust is beginning to finally settle down on the controversies, suspensions and commission reports as the Indian Premier League gears up for yet another player auction.As many as 351 players from across the world will go under the hammer tomorrow but the focus will be on the eight marquee players which includes the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Ishant Sharma, Kevin Pietersen and Shane Watson. These four have the highest base price of Rs 2 crore and are certainly going to be much sought after once the auction gets underway tomorrow. (Stupid to turn my back on IPL: AB de Villiers )Yuvraj, who starred with bat and ball in India’s World Cup triumph in 2011, stands to make bi bucks again. The swashbuckling Punjab all-rounder fetched a record Rs 14 crore deal with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2014 auction before breaking his own record to bag a Rs 16 crore deal with Delhi Daredevils the next tear. However, both teams released him after just one season following poor performances from the star player. (Suresh Raina wary of MS Dhoni in IPL 2016 )Yuvraj had barely played any international cricket before the 2014 auction and had been out of the Indian team for nearly a year before Daredevils snapped him in February 2015. This time he goes into the auctions as part of the Indian team for the World T20. Though he did not set Australia on fire with the bat during the three-match T20 series, Yuvraj bowled well, looked sharp on the field and struck two lusty blows in the final over of a tense finish at the Sydney Cricket Ground. All of that combined with his cult status with the masses could force several teams to gun for the 34-year-old.advertisementPietersen, the sacked England batsman will also be on the radar. He was in top form during the Big Bash League and smashed 323 runs for the Melbourne Stars. Pune and Rajkot are still looking to build on the core they developed at the first ever IPL draft in November while several other sides would be desperate for Pietersen’s experience in the middle-order. (Don’t have preference for any IPL team: Kevin Pietersen )Australian all-rounder Shane Watson, who made an international comeback in the T20 series against India, did his prospects at the auctions no harm by slamming a majestic hundred at the SCG last Sunday. He has a terrific IPL record and has been a crucial cog in the wheel for Rajasthan Royals. Expect several team owners to go aggressively after Watson.Meanwhile, India speedster Ishant Sharma, who had a poor ODI series against Australia and has been overlooked for subsequent T20 squads, could attract some attention tomorrow as well. There is a dearth of quality Indian pacers in the IPL and Ishant’s experience on Indian pitches could be telling in tight games.Besides, there will be a host of other international stars to choose from. Usman Khwaja, who was in red-hot form during the BBL, is bound to attract some attention as is Michael Hussey, a Chennai Super Kings veteran.There will be plenty of options for teams looking to shop for bowlers this year. Ashish Nehra, Dhawal Kulkarni, Mohit Sharma, Sudeep Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat and Ashok Dinda will be up for grans along with other foreign players.Here’s everything you need to know about the IPL
