ipl auction: my high point...

by straight point

in addition to homer's high point at the ipl auction... my high point was mohammad kaif bought by kings xi punjab for $250K...

for me they really became the 'kings' with this gesture... and i officially announce that my adopted team for the upcoming ipl season will be kings xi punjab after being rajasthan royals and the reason is not hard to guess...

after rajasthan's not so royal snub of kaif when he was sent back to india as unwanted flab from ipl season 2 in south africa.. and kaif not even featuring in rest of india's squad as also the challengers .. i was really worried about his future... fearing what if he goes unsold...?

as we have seen earlier... IPL has indeed given opportunities to players like watson, yusuf pathan etc. to stake claim in their respective national teams... so i hope and wish that kaif, after being re-united with his natwest series finals' mate yuvraj, which is a good omen, relaunches an irresistible claim for team india this season...

amen!

what was your high point of the ipl auction...?

My hight point was when Afridi was not bought. Another high point was when I thought Umar Akmal was bought, but he wasn't. But Kaif being bought, yeah, that was a higher high point than Afridi not being bought.

Nothing can beat Afridi not being bought. However, my high point had already been achieved before the auction - when Pricky was bought out and kicked away by Kolkata. Heck, I might even support them this time despite SRK :-)
One regret though is that I would have loved Pricky to be 12th man when Dada is batting, and Dada signs to him to replace his boots :-)

woohoo!! You said it SP! Exactly what I was saying to someone yesterday...

If they let Kaif play, they have my unconditional support for this IPL :)

High Point - The only English player bought was actually Irish

Going sentimental, are we? $250,000 for Kaif is way too much, and even I have a soft corner for him.

There wasn't anything about the auction that sent me over the moon but if I had to pick something it would be Parnell going to the Daredevils.
