It was not much for Chris gayle in IPL Auction 2011. He is still available after Ganguly, still he is in waiting list. It’s understood from the franchises that Chris Gayle was available only for two weeks of the IPL in 2011 and that’s why the teams didn’t want to bid for him. So to took that risk to bid on the brand Chris Gayle.
Same is the case with Herschelle Gibbs and Jesse Ryder, they are still not on the boards.
No one took that initiative to even bid for them. Not even the bid started to wave them to any corner of any franchisee.
