Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar to play for Mumbai Indians. It will be great to see these iconic batsmen bat with each other.

         

Two of the greatest batsmen of all time and compatriots Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar have always been playing against each other their entire careers. But now, both will be donning the same jersey and will be making efforts to make only one team win - Mumbai Indians.

We are talking about the latest IPL auctions. Ricky Ponting has been bought by the Mumbai Indians for a price of $400,000, which is equivalent to Rs. 2.1 crores. There was expected to be a great amount of interest in the bidding of Ponting, who retired from international cricket recently.

A lot of eyes were also on the auctioning of Michael Clarke - the current Aussie captain. However, the interest proved to be a damp squib as not much interest was generated in their auctioning. Both of them were sold at their base prices, which was the same for both.

As far as Ricky Ponting is concerned, Mumbai Indians managed to win the world renowned player who has also been a bit controversial in his playing days. This upcoming season of IPL would be a treat to watch for the fans as it would possible to see both Ponting and Tendulkar bumping their fists when one of them hits a boundary.

This type of camaraderie is only possible through IPL. And that is what the flavor of the league is. We have already seen brothers facing brothers - Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan battling against each other. We have seen players from one team getting the other out and celebrating madly, but the same players have played for their country as well.

The players will be contracted only for the current season. There will be new contracts issued the next year. This means, it is only this year that the players will be playing for their respective leagues unless they are bought by the current franchises.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) got underway from April 3, 2013.
