Big Willey signs for CSK as a replacement for K Jadhav. That makes 12 England players at the IPL.

Having not seen many at the competition in the last few seasons, do Indians rate English T20 players more than the English do, or are they cheap...?
Willey the replacement for Santner. Overseas players can't replace Indian players

ECB really needs to do something about a cut off point of some kind for players to go there, I'm not a Yorkie by any means but to lose two players in the space of 4/5 days when the season starts on Friday is an absolute farce; shocking treatment as far as the counties are concerned.

If Warner was available, Sunrisers would have been massive favourites. They bought really well in the auction. KKR have a very good first XI but if anyone gets injured, then they don't have replacements.
Kings XI need to drop Yuvi to have any chance. Finch should play for them.
Maxi needs to play well for DD to have a chance.
Mumbai have retained their core and will do well as usual.
CSK looks weak. Raina needs to have a special tournament for them to make the playoffs.
Rajasthan look the weakest of all.
RCB need AB and BMac to fire as their bowling is weak. Should chase every game.

My predictions (Will go badly wrong):
Sunrisers, KKR, DD and Kings XI will make the playoffs. And I am going to pick DD to win this year.

Ah, my bad. That's how it was portrayed in the news.

Makes sense when you think about it.

I read it that cricket Australia withdrew Cummins to manage his workload and that he's not actually injured

Considering the amount of money on the line English players would have to be rated and they are also cheap!! Days when players were purchased on reputation are gone, mostly. Problem with english players is not all are available or were available in past, also some of your players are not that well suited for Indian pitches whereas players from other countries are now playing Big Bash, PSL, IPL, South African and Bangla leagues so they are more developed/used to dead and lively pitches, English players are held back for whatever reason and same for Indian who only play IPL.

In recent years though the English players have commanded some huge fees. I believe Stokes was the biggest overseas purchase last edition. Was Archer (soon to be English) one of, if not the most expensive overseas this year? Mills also commanded a fee of over $1 Million last year. To say the English players are cheap is a little misleading and certainly a trend that is changing, Stokes Buttler Woakes Roy Hales Ali Wood all in the mix this year for starters.

Traditionally they have been cheap but there are exceptions as always, for e.g. KP was not cheap. Yes the reputation is changing and players were purchased because the Indians see them as good players.

Russell back with a bang after his doping ban. Taking his mate bravo to the cleaners - not many do that
