what about the ipl worth of pakistani players now...

by straight point

not so long ago...in fact just two matches before...when pakistan was on a high after winning t20 world championship there were reports that pakistani players were demanding more money to be featured in the next ipl...as they were not happy with their existing contract after their new champions status...

as usual plenty of debate in media and the blogs...

many said it was sheer opportunism...while others said they were worth it...

after two matches and three consecutive collapses...it will be interesting to see what sort of price they will demand with ipl franchisees...will the ‘worth’ be reviewed...?

before you make comments like that that was t20 and this is tests...

i would like you to see the nucleus of the team...or the final xi that played in these two tests...how many players were missing from the ‘t20’ lineup...?

so if they keep on collapsing even in other formats...do you really think that ‘market’ will evaluate their ‘worth’ the same way had pakistan won this series...?

Well, SP, the fact that they can last only around 20 overs in Tests shows they are totally committed to T20, isnt it? I say, their value should increase after this performance in tests :-)

I second that Raj. On second thoughts, I twenty that.

More than any Pak players, there should be demand for Afridi, if he hasn't retired.

hahaha...raj...

indeed if this is the criteria...it should... :)

NC...i wonder there will be special clause on afridi's contract to keep his mouth shut the way he is in 'sound bites' mode for waiting media...

Q said...

So from the team that played the test only Misbah, Malik, Akmal, Gul, Ajmal, and Aamer are sure starters for a T20 game.. that's just half the team...

Out of them I think only Misbah, Malik, Akmal, Gul, and Aamer may get IPL contracts...

Misbah, Akmal, and Gul already have contracts.. the other 2 may get ones higher in value than what they had before..

straight point said...

that's fair assessment Q...

but where i differ with you is that i don't think misbah, malik will be retained...and if retained will play...

Q said...

Misbah still has a contract with Bangalore and they have said they will take him back..

Malik's contract was cancelled by Delhi and I believe he will be picked up at the auction...
