Scenario 1: Sachin’s Malinga is injured but Mumbai do not release him officially. Simple no wildcard.

Scenario 2: Sachin’s Malinga is out of the tournament and has played 4 games. Sachin gets a wildcard and brings in Praveen Kumar. Praveen Kumar will get points from the fifth game he plays since Malinga has played 4 games. Since Sachin wisely brought in a bowler for a bowler he gets Malinga’s points from the four games and from then on Praveen Kumar’s points.

Scenario 3: Sachin’s Malinga is out of the tournament and has played 4 games. Sachin gets a wildcard and brings in Murali Vijay. Now because Sachin has got a batsmen in for a bowler out, he does not get any points from Malinga’s four games. He only gets point for Murali Vijay after game 5.

Scenario 4: Sachin’s Malinga is out of the tournament and has played 8 games. If Malinga was one of Sachin’s top three buys at the auctions. He gets the special wildcard.

Scenario 5: Sachin’s Malinga is out of the tournament and has played 11 games. Sorry, no wildcard here. The second wildcard is only till the tenth game!

Scenario 6: Sachin’s Malinga is released for Mumbai and brought back. Because Sachin decided to release him, he cannot return.
