Shaun Marsh did not get any bid.

Mitchell Marsh had said he will not play IPL because he wants to concentrate on tests.

Mitch Marsh will be playing for surrey in all formats this summer, hence why he opted out of the IPL

Dinesh gets KKR captaincy. Surprised Uthappa was given vice captaincy rather than Dinesh. Ashwin is captain of Kings 11 Punjab.

Rajasthan Royals to sack Smith as Captain in IPL 2018.

Think Ajinkya will get the role.

A top official from the franchise told Republic that they wouldn’t wait for the final report as Smith’s active role and involvement has been proved beyond any doubt.

Confirmed.

Smith quits Royals captaincy, Ajinkya replaces Smith as captain.

imo if CA enquiry find Warner guilty, Warner will be asked to step down from captaincy by SRH. Tom Moody and VVS Laxman would not allow him to lead side if he is guilty. Both Tom and VVS have top reputation in IPL and imo they will ensure action only after sufficient justification and proof.

Smith already stepped down because he admitted the tampering act and RR would have told him to step down rather than sacking giving it a nice cosmetic look. Same will happen with Warner if found guilty.

Mitch Marsh might need to be getting his head around being the new Australian captain.

Speaking to CricketNext, a senior BCCI official said that all speculations mean nothing if the CA bans them for even two months as any player banned by his host body cannot be a part of the IPL.

Martin Guptill is available. Luke Ronchi had a brilliant PSL. In fact match winning final knock. Those are two names i can think of for now.


Amla is not an option as he has opted for county contract after not getting bid in IPL.

I expect Kane Willamson to take over the captaincy for us (sunrisers)
