even so!

of course, it's a different game. Franchise teams..... all about the money with no team loyalty. difficult to understand how a supporter is supposed to interact with a team.... perhaps they can only interact with certain players, and switch team loyalty around

Colin Munro will be one player whom franchisees will bid intensely for imo.

Ponting has been announced as the head coach of Delhi Daredevils. He coached Mumbai Indians for two seasons in 2015 & 2016.

Same here, i like to predict how much bid a player will get. I got it correct regarding Ben Stokes last year. :geek:

Auctions will be telecast and they are on weekends , so will get to watch it. Will be fun.
