Arbaaz Khan, like the rest of India, is an avid cricket lover, and is quite updated about the IPL auction.

'Uncapped players have an unfair deal at the IPL auction. The max a player can get is 30 lacs according 2 the number of seasons he has played. That means a player as good as manish pandey goes for only 20 lacs and saurav tiwary goes for 7.36 cr. How ridiculous !' he tweeted.

His rant continued with: 'Uncapped players 2 should be auctioned , in any case each team has a purse on only $9m. Who is anybody to decide a players worth. Rubbish !! Just because saurav tiwary got 2 play an ODI match he get a heavy contract of 7.36cr. Manish pandey surely deserves more. Say wot ?'

He also had a suggestion for the IPL: 'Maybe it makes sense to auction capped players first but what remains in the purse can be used to buy uncapped players too in an auction.. Bottom line, IPL should be treated as an open market where each player decides his worth and risks getting picked or not.'

And he didn't stop there: 'Imagine the potential corruption that can take place in the selection of players now that its understood that the are worth more when capped. Players will be given international caps on tours of bangladesh and zimbabwe so that they can command high prices at IPL. Its all a big mess.'
