    Because they already have IPL contracts. Please do some research before posting such comments.

    Banda Sunday, 03 February 2013 12:30 PM

    They are not auctioned this year - they will continue to play for the previous years teams

    Banda Sunday, 03 February 2013 12:32 PM

    Why? so that MR can appoint more ministers? You earn a living until you retire. Cricketers have to earn during a limited period for a lifetime. Some cricketers play only for a few seasons. SO LET THEM GET WHAT THEY DESERVE. Sri Lankans can be only proud of their cricketers. Are you chinese to say things like this?

    Banda Sunday, 03 February 2013 12:33 PM

    Sachitra will be a flop in Indian wickets

    Arun Monday, 04 February 2013 04:16 AM
