The common question on everyone`s mind is does Sourav Ganguly have to go to the IPL auctions on 4th February or will he play for Pune Warriors without having to go for the auctions. And after the terrible experience in the last auctions, most Sourav Ganguly fans would love to avoid the auction part.
So its confirm now that the players who were replacement players in the last IPL like Ganguly & Gayle, can sign up with those teams only if they mutually agree! So, if Pune Warriors and DADA agree, then DADA can play for PWI!!!
According to the new rules, the Team that these players played for in IPL 4, have the first rights of refusal of the player & only of they reject the player, he will go into the auctions.
So, we can confirm you the news, that yes, Sourav Ganguly will not enter the IPL auctions & will simple sign a contract of mutual agreement with PWI & play for them.
Earlier, Gayle has already done the same thing, and has signed the contract with RCB to play IPL 5 in red & gold.
So rest assure Ganguly fans, the Maharaj is all set to take the IPL 5 full on.
