Not necessarily. He may have opted out because of the poor performance of his team in the last editions. However it is a surprise why other team managements decline him as he is one of the leading run getter in the previous editions and will be an asset to any team with his economical medium pace.

IPL is a big money game. Owners can not let their emotions rule. When they build a team they go by reasoning and calculation and not emotion. That is why among the icons, only players in top form like Sewagh, Dhoni and Sachin were retained by their team owners, whereas costly player like Lakshman, Dravid, Saurav, Yuvaraj and Kumble who are not in their original form or typically suited for T20 format had to go in for auction. Dravid , Yuvaraj and Lakshman took a sensible decision by agreeing for realistic lower base price so that they got picked up by teams who were building team from the scratch or were looking for bargain sale because of low amount in the kitty. Kumble since he was not prepared to move out of Bangalore and knowing very well RCB may find it difficult to bid for him decided to opt out of being auctioned and took up an official's role in RCB. In case of DADA like a typical Bong, he went by emotion rather than clear reasoning. Like other stalwarts, had he reduced his ...more

SRK is the owner of the KKR and he can take any decission what he thinks right but SG should not be blamed for the dismal performence of the KKR in the last three edition of the IPL;It was due to the wrong decission at the top othe team.Though he has not performed well in few of the matches he has the ability to play IPL for some time.Cricket is a team game and a singe player can not help the team to win every time.

I do not think so. As Josna pointed out it may be due to poor performance may prompt IPL Owners not to include him in any of the francise. more over, i think it may be due to age also. Even Jayasurya and Chris Gayle is also did not have any takers , then why there is hue and cry about Ganguly exclsuion I do not know. Moreover, tell you frankly i personally don' t like this IPL Masala. it kills the game of cricket. it may be called as Pyjama cricket.
