Flintoff and Peterson(Pietersen) top the IPL auctions. IPL countdown starts....


The IPL fever has spread all over India as these most entertaining cricket matches are starting April 10th this year. IPL had a overwhelming response from all over the world especially India in the last season. The auction for the non Indian cricketers happened on feb 6th. The two England players Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen(Peterson) topped the auction list with 1.55$ million each. Previously the highest paid player was MS Dhoni with 1.5$ million. Flintoff was grabbed by the Chennai Super Kings and Peterson was won by Vijay Mallya for his Royal Challengers. Australians lost favour this season as the Australian team is out of form.
The series starts by April 21 and will contain 21 days of non-stop, highly entertaining cricket. Will the defending champions Rajasthan Royals make it again this time or lose it to some other team. Get ready to watch the IPL in action. The count down begins........
