so that they still have a smirk on their faces when Ganguly gets mentioned in cricket debates But that expression changed a wee bit the other day when Ganguly went unsold on the first day of Indian Premier League 4 auction And as soon as the auctioneerwith perpetually arched eyebrowsstruck the hammer and rolled the Ganguly ball to the darkness below the daisall hell broke loose A collective shaking of heads questioned the cricketing intellect of the franchise owners And logic moved to the back burner as every sold or unsold new entry on the players roster was questioned Meanwhilethe Ganguly gangnot losing hopewere expecting the franchise owner to pick their hero at the leftovers sale the next day That was not to beand rightly so Indias most successful captain can only be the

anybodys guess that Mumbai will pay much more to 38-year-old Sachin Tendulkar to retain him And considering the multiple role 41-year-old Shane Warne plays for the Rajasthan Royalsit is very likely that he too might top Gambhir Thirty-nine-year-old Adam Gilchrist might have been sold cheaply at the auction but he is likely to get a big bonus as he is to lead Kings XI Punjab The same is true for the Sri Lankan veterans Kumara Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardenewho too might end up being captains of their IPL sides And since VVS LaxmanRahul Dravid and Muthiah Muralitharan will be seen in action during IPL 4it is a clear indication that age isnt quite an issue with owners Indias 20-something cricketers getting fat paycheques is perceived as another IPL 4 mystery But it too has an easy explanation: short supplyhigh demand Since the inaugural seasonyoungsters have always been in demand The present quantum leap is because of the two new franchises and the $9 million purse they brought with them So the IPLs most consistent performer Rohit Sharmas tag of $2 million isnt unrealisticnor is Saurabh Tiwarys contract of $16 million unreasonable Even the big bucks for young pacers Umesh Yadav or Jaydev Unadkat are somewhat justifiedconsidering the chances of these fringe players becoming big stars are high in the coming years But still: why was Irfan Pathanwho isnt even playing for
