    Smith not playing today would be a big loss for the batting . Delhi needs to start winning , if they get left behind , they would miss out to the big dance

    I saw in the tweets thread that this is their last year anyway before the franchise gets disbanded

    So what's the incentive to build a strong team for the long term?

    Yeah I agree , Well Smith has a stomach bug.
    If you can only play 4 overseas players that's fair but make sure you use them properly.
    By buying both Zampa and Tahir you are bound to play them or that's wasted money. Now if Tahir and Zampa play that means only 2 other overseas player one of them is always Smith - so only one more Foreign player to be played.
    Pune should have possibly only bought one of Tahir or Zampa - played an Indian spinner and used another overseas bat like Quinton or possibly Morris / Khwaja even Lynn in their team.

    Yeah but if you are paying money to promote your business and spending money on auctions...wouldn't it make sense to build a proper team to get the necessary hype for your brand?

    I mean, if you are doing something why not do it right?

    Several reasons:

    1. Cos they get more turn off the surface than finger spinners
    2. Cos they can spin it both ways
    3. Cos the above reason can make batsmen circumspect and get confused
    4. Cos most batsmen are right handers who will play for the turn and miss a straight ball (that advantage even left armers have) but with leggies it can happen more often cos they will turn one or two deliveries putting doubts in batsmen's mind and making them miss straight balls
    5. T20 has evolved where half tracker is a WAYYY better ball than a overpitched one...leggies can get wickets off half trackers (due to batsmen in pressure to score fast) which is supposed to be their biggest weakness
    6. Googly - If you have a great googly, you can keep ruling the world till batsmen decipher your googly....left armers or offies don't have such weapons.....

    Means there will be 10 new owners for 10 new teams?

    Auction again, Icon player again?

    Some other businessman could be owning RCB than Vijay Mallaya? And some venues like Rajasthan might not have a franchise at all and some new venue could have it in their place?

    No,just Pune and Gujarat might not be renewed and probably many players will be put up in the pool.

    There will be 8 teams. 8 owners.

    As before.

    These 2 new teams will go.

    Auction will be there.

    Icon player no.

    Probably retaining some players will be there.

    As of now, no info on incorporating 2 new teams.

    He hasn't been great in recent times. He'll be 36 next year, with the likes of Pant and Samson coming up Dhoni will have to make way for the youngsters. Without playing international matches he won't good enough to play in next year's IPL. I'm sure he will still play but won't do well I recon.

    INTL he is finished,imo after Champ trophy should retire on his own but probably won't.He probably has 2 seasons of IPL left in him before becoming mentor or something.

    Vijay Shankar is the next captain of Chennai if not vice-captain. A person associated with one of the big 2 political part of Tamil Nadu is expected to bid for the Chennai team.
