    Hmm, difficulties and there are probably multiple reasons.

    IIRC, the IPL has quite a lot of difficulties. Also, players had to break out of their cricket associations to play in the IPL. Something we wouldn't see in badminton.

    More information will come this Friday the 19th......

    Is there any statement as yet from any of the other badminton NAs as to which players they have released for the IBL?

    May be not... Whether he got attention or not, i found his familiarity when i found fans shouting his name in one of the tournament recently... Tata open international 2012 i think.. I have watched the presentation ceremony in the television . When his name got announced, the response from the audience was awesome.

    EXCERPTS:

    Burman family -- which forayed into the field of sports with Indian Premier League and followed it up with the Hockey India League, successfully bid and bagged the 'Pune Pistons', one of the six franchises in the USD 1-million IBL.

    The Burman family, promoters of Dabur Group, has bought the Pune franchise of the Indian Badminton League (IBL) which is scheduled to be held in six states across the country from August 14 to 31.

    Burman family -- which forayed into the field of sports with Indian Premier League and followed it up with the Hockey India League, successfully bid and bagged the 'Pune Pistons', one of the six franchises in the USD 1-million IBL.

    "Having been actively involved in league sports in the country, we are elated to contribute towards the rise of IBL," said Dabur Group Director Mohit Burman.

    "The conceptualisation and design of this League is really interesting and we are thrilled to be a part of it.

    "As in the case of our involvement in IPL as well as HIL, this is a personal investment by the Burman family and is not connected to Dabur India Ltd."

    Speaking on this occasion, BAI President Dr Akhilesh Das Gupta, said: "We welcome the Burman family into the game of Badminton and we look forward to a strong and successful association. We are confident that this association will add value to the overall badminton scenario of India."

    The IBL is an initiative of BAI with Sporty Solutionz as the Commercial Partner. The tournament will get underway on August 14 with some high-voltage action expected between PVP's Hyderabad Hotshots and BOP Group's Banga Beats.

    Speaking about the deal, Ashish Chadha, CEO, Sporty Solutionz, said: "We are excited that the family behind the over 128-year-old consumer goods company has come on board the IBL. I am sure this association will help IBL create goodwill amongst its stakeholders."

    The inaugural IBL will feature six franchises and will run for 18 days. Each franchise will host a two-day leg and the League will showcase a grand total of 90 matches.

    The top four franchises in the League will clash in the semifinals and the winners will meet in the grand final on August 31, which will be played out in Mumbai.

    The IBL is also running a school championship -- Shuttle Express, which will offer Rs 10 lakh as prize money and an opportunity to train at the world-class Pullela Gopichand Academy to the young talent.

    Sunil Gavaskar, Nagarjuna buy Mumbai team of Indian Badminton League


    http://ibnlive.in.com/news/sunil-gav...522-5-135.html

    EXCERPTS:

    Legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has joined hands with South Indian actor Nagarjuna and Hyderabad-based businessman V Chamundeshwarnath to co-own the Mumbai franchise of the Indian Badminton League (IBL).

    More than 150 players are expected to go under the hammer at the players' auction that will see six franchises bidding to fill 66 slots. Hyderabad HotShots, Karnataka Kings (Bangalore), Lucknow Warriors, Mumbai Masters, Pune Vijetas and Rajdhani Smashers (Delhi) are the six teams that will play the IBL with 11 players each. Each team can have a maximum of four foreign players with one mandatory under-19 player from their local area.

    The players' auction for the $1 million league, scheduled for August 14 to 31, was to take place on July 19, but it has reportedly been postponed for 3 days after the franchises expressed their desire to have a workshop before the auction.

    Indian stars Saina Nehwal, Jwala Gutta, Ashwini Ponnappa, Parupalli Kashyap and PV Sindhu are the five icon players with a base price of $50,000. A yet-to-be-named foreign star will be the sixth icon player. The league will have a total of 90 matches.

    Co-owner of the Mumbai franchise, Nagarjuna promised a long association with the IBL. "Badminton as a sport has rendered our country immense global presence and limelight for which we all are proud of. We look forward to a strong and successful association with both BAI and Sporty Solutionz for all the editions of IBL."

    Gavaskar said he always admired the sport of badminton, which he follows passionately. "I am proud to be associated with badminton which I've always admired and passionately followed and played a bit as a fan. The sport has produced legends and recorded many milestones for India and I hope my association with the Indian Badminton League proves to be a worthy contribution to the great sport of badminton."

    Saina Nehwal, Lee Chong Wei get top base price for IBL auction






    Saina Nehwal



    New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) India’s women’s badminton ace Saina Nehwal and World No.1 men’s shuttler Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia have been given the top base price of $50,000 for the upcoming Indian Badminton League (IBL) players auction to be held here Monday.


    Along with Saina and Lee, four Indian shuttlers – Parupalli Kashyap, Jwala Gutta, Ashwini Ponnappa and P.V. Sindhu – have got a $50,000 base price tag to add to their Icon Player status for the franchise based tourney to be held across six Indian cities from Aug 14-31.


    As was known, none of the top Chinese shuttlers are participating in the event apart from Zheng Bo (mens doubles) and Bao Chunlai (men’s singles). Just the fact that they are from the most dominant country in the sport has led them to be given a base price of $40,000.


    Apart from Kashyap and Lee, Thai World No.4 Boonsak Ponsana and Hong Kong’s World No.6 Hu Yun also have got the highest base price of $50,000 in the men’s singles. Other Indian shuttlers featuring in the auction list are Mumbai’s Ajay Jayaram, priced at $30,000, and R.M.V. Gurusaidutt, at $25,000.


    Surprisingly, former Olympic and World Champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia, who retired recently, has been given a base price of only $15,000.


    In the women’s singles, Germany’s World No.4 Juliane Schenk and 2013 India Open Super Series champion Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand have also been tagged at $50,000.


    Meanwhile, Danish World No.3 men’s doubles pair Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen, silver medallists at London Olympics, have also been priced at $50,000 and are expected to fetch much more. They are the only pair in their category to be given that rate.


    In the mixed doubles, apart from icon players Jwala and Ashwini, Danish London Olympic bronze medallists Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christinna Pedersen, along with Kamilla Juhl, have been given the highest bid price of $35,000.
