RCB always do something stupid in the auctions! Buying Tymal Mills for that price is crazy...having said that, all the players go back into the pool next yr so it probably wont hurt RCB as much. Strange that they didnt go after Mitch Johnson...given the form he is in, he would have been an ideal replacement for Starc.

Rcb are a odd team - no way are they within the squad budgets. People like Gayle are paid on the side through other means.

The biggest surprise for me was Mohammed Shehzad not picked by any of the teams..he can be a very destructive batsman and a game changer. Also, Imran Tahir not inviting any bids! how did that happen?

there were definitely a few surprises - but there always is -

Imran Tahir - unsold
Ishant Sharma - unsold
Klinger - unsold - with a base price of only 50 lakhs!
Dickwella - the SL is in great form and didn't attract anything

and thats just a few

it really was all about the seamers this year though.

can't believe anyone hasn't mentioned Woakes in this thread yet - went to KKR for 500K!

I was just about to comment on Woakes, seems absolutely mental.

Been flogged like a dead horse but seeing all of the English players doing well shows how far we've come from the horror show of that 2015 World Cup in such a short space of time, exciting times

Yes definitely, can't believe there will be 8 England players in this years IPL (and Hales & Bairstow went unsold) - amazingly they are all at different teams as well -

Stokes - RPS
Jordan - SRH
Roy - GL
Woakes - KKR
Mills - RCB
Morgan - KIXP
Butler - MI
Billings - DD

Except for Jordan, I think all of them would be first choice in the starting XI...although Roy will have to fight it out with a few other openers in GL.

If Roy doesn't open after the winter he's had in the subcontinent then they're absolutely clueless

Yep agreed.

It is a shame Roy didn't go to one of the other sides because at GL he is likely up against Finch and Smith for one of the openers spots and the last OS place.

With McCullum definitely opening and Bravo nailed on to play and probably either Faulkner or Tye as the final OS.

For me he gets in ahead of Finch and Smith though.

Dont know what the teams see in Eoin Morgan....he lacks consistency but still gets picked by teams.

If anyone in T20 cricket was consistent they'd be paid billions.

All about experience - if you look at where Kings XI paid their money they also bought Sammy and Guptill.

To be honest all 3 were absolute steals at the prices they paid as well.

I think Billings will struggle to be an automatic pick looking at DD's overseas roster
