IPL5 Auction Starts on 4th Feb’2012

On 4th February 2012 , bidding for IPL players would start in Bangalore and no Big Deal if in the forthcoming  T20 matches scheduled in Australia ,  witness Indian Bats swinging for good. Matches are to be held on 1st and 3rd of February on Sydney and Melbourne pitches respectively. These matches would have sure impact on the bidding process of Indian players who are enlisted in IPL and would be playing these 2 T20s as well. So miracles of India winning the T20s(at least one of the 2 matches) may happen as it is not the nation but the personal worth of the players of India which would be on stake.

Regardless,whether the players play for themselves or the nation, it is important that India wins. That would somehow bring back a little bit of  lost respect of  Team India which got shattered  in the Test Matches played with Australia and previously with England.
