Hales' fee seems a tad unfair. Hyderabad saved Warner's $1.7m salary thought they could've paid around $500k

It is a free market, Hales could have said no.
No one else wanted him so he was sold as a replacement at his base price.
As with ebay. You need two or more teams to push up the price for a player.

Hales is off to the ipl with the sunrisers...

It is good. IPL and other t-20 tourneys should be reserved for aging or near-retirement players who can't play Test cricket. Make room for young guys to play their domestic first-class cricket and then boards can groom them for proper/high quality cricket.
