Sarfaraz Khan had an ACL injury...he couldn't have played even if he wanted to

The point is ... did they need to retain him?

He's potentially the next superstar of Indian Cricket, so probably worth retaining him given his potential.

They'll be hoping he becomes synonymous with RCB in the same vein that Rohit is for Mumbai, Kohli with RCB, and Raina & Dhoni for CSK.

Same thinking is behind Rishabh Pant & Shreyas Iyer being retained, albeit they have cost considerably more, given they are already capped.

My thoughts on the retentions:
Mumbai and Hyderabad got it spot on.
Did Bangalore mix up between Chahal and Sarfaraz?
Kolkata could have retained Lynn as well. Narine and Russell are good options. They will use the Right to match for their Indian players.
Delhi - Not sure about Pant but Shreyas and Morris are good options.
Chennai - Dhoni is more of a sentimental pick but Raina might have a point to prove.
Rajasthan - Smith might be burned out by the time IPL starts with the year he has had.
Punjab - Axar is a good player but don't think he would have gone for that money in the bidding. Best to have started from a clean slate.

Does anybody outside of india still watch the IPL? Felt to me as though it has just Turned into one corrupt money laundering event and spoiled my view of it.


Nope. Australian tv channels wont go near it either.
A lot of hype .

Few players who have over hiked their asking prices:

$315k - Mitch Johnson, White, Morgan, Wiley
$235k - harry gurney, jason roy, Bopara, Ali, Finn, Lyon

I had to check my eyes about 3-4 times when I saw Harry Gurney's name in the Cricinfo article last night.

What does everything think will happen with Root? I'd like to see him get some experience out there, but he hasn't got much of a T20 record to fall back on, but it's still Joe Root. Several better T20 players will be available for less.

Not much of a T20 record to fall back on??

He averages 40 in international T20s at a strike rate of over 125.....

Jason Roy looks like good value for money seeing what he has done today and his white ball record over all espically in amongst those other names

He'll probably get picked and sit in the dugout until he gets a game batting at 6 again.

Hope him and hales get a fair crack of the whip to show what they can do. Better value than some of the overseas who were picked up and played most of the games last season

If youre a poor player of spin you aint getting much of a look in. Neither Roy or Hales are capable against proper high class spin. Going further even Guptill struggled to get many games due to the same weakness

Think it's more the number of T20s that Root actually plays in.  He's the same age as Williamson and a year younger than Smith, yet Williamson has played over twice as many T20s as Root and Smith has played nearly 3 times as many.
