IPL Auction

The fixtures have yet to be announced, however the auction kicks off on the 6th of February, with 111 players up for auction. Each franchise has a maximum of US$2m to spend on their overseas signings in the auction, it is likely that only about 16 players – or two per franchise – will be chosen out of the 111. Kevin Pietersen has a base price of 1.35 million and the experts reckon he will be worth more than the 1.5 million paid for Dhoni.

Modi said the demand for England’s top stars would be high. “If you look at the base price it’s close to US$250,000 and US$350,000 a week for each week he [Pietersen] plays, which is comparable to the top soccer players around the world,” he told Setanta Sports News. “Andrew Flintoff has a minimum base price of US$950,000, but he’ll probably go for a higher figure. It’ll be quite competitive. All the teams can afford it. Everyone’s trying to get England’s top players in their team.”

SA Emerging Squad

This tournament is a benchmark to get the fringe players into the National side and has helped players like Philander make a name for himself. SA has performed well in this competition – often SA have taken players with international experience which generally the other sides don’t have. Watch out for Wayne Parnell fresh from the u19 World cup. Dean Elgar is a definite up and coming youngster to watch and Henry Davids has had the season of his life.

“We have won this competition in the last two years, beating Australia and New Zealand in the final. This is a tough competition and the experience gained by our players is invaluable for the later international tours”, Vince van der Bijl, Cricket South Africa’s High Performance general manager said.

Ahmed Amla (capt), Yusuf Abdullah, Werner Coetzee, Henry Davids, CJ de Villiers, Dean Elgar, Imraan Khan, Rory Kleinveldt, Wayne Parnell, Daryn Smit (wk), Blake Snijman, Thandi Tshabalala, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Vaughan van Jaarsveld.
