#CPL16 CPL announces record applications for CPL Player Draft 2016






#CPL16

CPL announces record applications for CPL Player Draft 2016
Tom Moody hails "most competitive roster" in CPL history

Badree, Bravo brothers, Gayle, Narine, Pollard, Sammy and Simmons in as West Indies talent pool increases by 22%
Afridi, Dilshan, Malinga, Misbah, Shakib and Wahab lead strong Asian presence

Amla, Miller, Philander, Morkel and Tahir named in 34-strong South African contingent

Overseas players increase by 18% from 14 countries ahead of 11 February Player Draft

A record number of local and international stars have been officially registered for the HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Player Draft which takes place on 11 February in Barbados.

Commenting on this year's record list of applicants both in the West Indies and across the world, Director of International Cricket for CPL, Tom Moody said: "Some of the leading names in world cricket have signalled their intentions to join the biggest party in sport at the CPL, so this year's competition is sure to be our most exciting to date.

"Outside of our 'marquee' players, there are international players of the highest standard including a host of World champions, and a myriad of players who continue to entertain and enrich the global game.

"It is without doubt our most competitive roster and it is exciting to see such a high standard across the established and emerging nations around the world. That players from 14 nations have entered the Draft illustrates the global reach of the CPL, and with a sizable increase in the West Indies contingent which is up by over one-fifth this year, it is clear that the T20 game is growing from strength to strength."


Amongst the list of West Indies talent who are in the frame for the six franchises this year are stars of the calibre of Chris Gayle (a winner of the inaugural competition with Jamaica Tallawahs back in 2013), West Indies World T20 captain Darren Sammy and Lendl Simmons.

Darren and Dwayne Bravo are set to join the number one ranked T20 international bowler Samuel Badree, as well as Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard, who was such a driving force in Barbados reaching last year's final before being edged by eventual winners Trinidad & Tobago.

To supplement the outstanding pool of local talent on display, some of the biggest names in international cricket will bid to join the five marquee players - Faf du Plessis, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Kumar Sangakkara and Shane Watson - who were confirmed last week.

Amongst the assembled overseas stars is a 34-strong South African contingent headed by prolific top order batsman Hashim Amla, leg-spinner Imran Tahir and fast bowler Morne Morkel.

There is sure to be a strong Pakistan presence in the tournament, which takes place from the end of June until the beginning of August, with one of the stars of last year's CPL for Barbados Shoaib Malik included amongst a plethora of big names including Shahid Afridi, Misbah-Ul-Haq (who has played in both St Lucia and Barbados to date) and left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz.

Across the continents, there will be seven Bangladesh (including Shakib Al Hasan who is one of the finest all-rounders in world cricket), while there will also be seven Afghanistan players which is indicative of their recent rise in the shortest format of the game. Sri Lanka, currently ranked third in the T20 team rankings, will have 20 representatives in the frame including legends Tillakaratne Dilshan and Lasith Malinga will be looking to join their compatriot Sangakkara.

There will be 23 players from Australia in the Draft, including a blend of experience in Brad Haddin, Brad Hodge and Michael Hussey allied to a crop of up-and-coming talent, and a further 11 New Zealanders, including the likes of Nathan McCullum.

Of the current ICC World T20 player rankings, nine of the top 20 batsmen could be set to feature in this summer's CPL: du Plessis (fourth place), Guptill (fifth), Gayle (seventh), Zimbabwe's Hamilton Masakadza (eighth), Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad (ninth), Dilshan (13th), Brendon McCullum (15th), Watson (17th) and Umar Akmal (18th).

Four of the top five bowlers in the T20 rankings are also in the frame with the list headed by West Indian leg-spinner Badree, Afridi (third), Sachithra Senanayake (fourth) and Graeme Cremer (fifth), with Malinga (seventh) and Tahir (ninth) also amongst the leading lights in contention.

With coveted spots up for grabs from the ICC Americas region, there is sure to be a lot of interest across North America as players from Canada (seven) and the USA (10), who recently competed in the Nagico Super 50 competition, all aim to book one of the six coveted places.

England (two), Ireland (two), Scotland (two) and Netherlands (one) will be the European representatives hoping to secure a place in the CPL.

Sixteen of the 157 West Indies players to register have already been retained ahead of the draft, leaving 141 eligible for selection on draft day. This is 25 more than the 116 who vied for spots at last year's Draft and represents a 22% increase. Coupled with an 18% increase in international player registration, this is further illustration of the CPL's growing stature as one of the foremost tournaments in T20 cricket.

England 'discard' KP and Fighter Yuvraj lead highest bid base in IPL 2016 Auction

The most expensive buy in the previous IPL auction, Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, along with 11 others, have quoted the highest base price for this year's auction to be held on February 6 in Bangalore.


According to a report in 'ESPN Cricinfo', apart from Yuvraj, England swashbuckler Kevin Pietersen and in-form Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh are among the 12 players who have listed the highest base price in a list of 714.

The final pool of players from these 714 would be selected on Monday.

Others in the Rs 2 crore bracket are Shane Watson, Ishant Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik, Stuart Binny, Sanju Samson, Dhawal Kulkarni, Kane Richardson and 40-year-old Australian all-rounder Mike Hussey.

South African pacer Dale Steyn, India's Mohit Sharma and Englishman Jos Butler are part of the Rs 1.5 crore group, while Irfan Pathan and Tim Southee are in the Rs 1 crore cluster.

IPL 2016 : Dhoni led Pune franchise named as Rising Pune Super Giants

Kolkata-based RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group has renamed its IPL Pune franchisee as Rising Pune Super Giants, in sync with its branding pursuit. On Monday, the group said that the abbreviated name is the same as group's name: RP-SG.

From Day One, we had indicated that our entry in the sports vertical will be for branding purpose.
- group chairman, Sanjiv Goenka said.
Apart from making sure to reflect the abbreviated group's name on its franchisee, the logo of the IPL cricket team also features part of the business group's logo and is designed using the corporate group's colours.The players' shirts may also use the same hues as the RP-SG group.
The team has narrowed in on former Indian cricket team skipper M S Dhoni as its captain for the 2016 season of the IPL. Dhoni was earlier captain of the successful Chennai Super Kings, whose promoters were barred from the franchise after the Justice Lodha committee found them guilty of match-fixing. An earlier IPL team Pune Warriors, owned by Sahara India, was disenfranchised from the IPL by the BCCI after it defaulted on bank guarantees following a meltdown in the promoter company's finances. 

Additionally, former Rajasthan Royals' senior official Raghu Iyer has been brought in as the CEO of the RP-SG group's sports vertical; the team will bid for players in the February 6 auction later this year.
Hinting at an entry into other sports as well, Goenka said,
 
We'll be more aggressive in the sports vertical in the coming days.
Initially, the company's decision to enter into sports hadn't gone down well with its shareholders as CESC shares took a beating after Goenka decided to buy a stake in the Pune IPL team.
However, Goenka said the decision would not reflect on its publicly listed companies.
"No losses from cricket will get reflected in the shares of our public listed companies", he said.
The market had perceived that the group's entry into the sports vertical might affect the bottom line of CESC, the RPSG group flagship company. The Pune franchisee is owned by New Rising, a subsidiary of CESC.

Ganguly fans burn Shah Rukh's effigy in Kolkata

 Angry over Kolkata Knight Riders' decision to not bid for Sourav Ganguly at the IPL auction, the fans of the former India skipper burnt KKR's principal owner Shah Rukh Khan in effigy on Sunday. 

Not only KKR but none of the nine other IPL franchisees showed interest in Ganguly. 

Ganguly, who is an iconic figure in Bengal, went unsold on the first day of the auction. He had a base price of $400,000. 

"No Sourav, no cricket," the fans said holding placards. They alleged that a "political conspiracy" was hatched against Ganguly. 

"We will boycott KKR matches here," they said.
