Kochi IPL Team to Be Ready By March: Lawson
Kochi IPL team coach Geoff Lawson today said the entire team would be announced by march.

Speaking to reporters after the IPL trials in which 43 players took part, he said, "The team will be announced by march. We will do a through research... A camp was held in Mumbai also."

Lawson did not specify any names who are likely to make it to the Kochi IPL team from the selection trials here but said he was 'impressed with the local talent. Kerala cricket is in good hands."

On Pakistan players not being part of the IPL matches, Lawson, a former Pakistan coach, said that that was a loss and they should have been part of IPL.

On India's chances in the World Cup, Lawson said, "If they can avoid someone like Sreesanth, India should be a very good team. India is a strong team," he said.

"South Africa, Sri Lanka, England and India are the team which are likely to reach the semi finals. But don't rule out Australia," he said.

On who would captain the Kochi IPL team, Lawson said Mahela Jayewardene was the likely name.

Asked about the name of the Kochi team, Lawson replied, "Experts are discussing..."

Lawson, who also visited the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here said it was a 'wonderful partnership with Kerala cricket Association for the IPL matches here.'
