There will be IPL auction from 3 pm today. All eight teams will bid for the players for the next season. Out of the 292 players who will bid, only 61 players will be purchased. Virat Kaholi’s team Royal Challengers Bangalore can buy the maximum 11 players, while Punjab has the highest amount of Rs 53.2 crores to buy 9 players.
Which team needs players? Which team can bid on which players? Let’s know …
Chennai has slots for only one foreign player. Which is vacant after Shane Watson retired. The team would like to bid on a player who can not only do power hitting but can also bowl if needed. In such a situation, Glenn Maxwell and Moin Ali will be in his top wishlist. Both are off-spinners.
Chennai do not have a single off-spinner after Harbhajan’s departure. In such a situation, Maxwell and Moin can also fill this gap. At the same time, the team also wants to prepare the future captain after Dhoni. In such a situation, Chennai can also bet on Steve Smith.

In the last IPL, Delhi reached the final for the first time. In such a situation, there will be no major change in the playing eleven of the team. The team’s focus will be on backup players. Delhi does not have the backup wicketkeeper of Rishabh Pant. Pant is the only wicketkeeper in the team after the release of Alex Curry.
Delhi needs a wicketkeeper the most. Among the homegrown players, Mohammed Azharuddin and Vishnu Solanki, while foreigners may bid on Sam Billings and Glenn Philip in Delhi. The team also needs backups for Stoinis, Rabada and Hetmyer. In such a situation, the team will also try to buy players like Maxwell, David Wiley, Chris Morris.
Players in the team right now: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyash Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Akshar Patel, R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan, Lalit Yadav, Amit Mishra, Praveen Dubey, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Shamron Hetmyer, Kagiso Rabada, Enrich Nortje .
Punjab has the most money for auction. Therefore, the franchise can buy its own players. The team can once again bet on Maxwell. At the same time, Kyle Jameson of New Zealand and Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh will also be on his radar.
The team does not have an experienced finger off spinner, so Kumble can also bid on his old partner Harbhajan Singh. The team may also bid on JE Richardson and Umesh Yadav to accompany Shami in the death over.
Players in the team right now: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Deepak Hooda, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Prabhasimar Singh, Arshadip Singh, Harpreet Brar, Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, Ishan Porel, Mohammed Shami, Darshan Nalkande, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Chris Jordan.
Kolkata have changed their captain during the last IPL. The coaching staff of the team has also changed. In such a situation, the new management has recently hired an analyst to create team strategy. Given Andre Russell’s fitness and Sunil Narine’s failure as an opener, the team’s focus will be on the duo’s backups.

Virat Kohli’s team needs more than one player in their playing eleven. The team has released players such as Aaron Finch, Chris Morris and Moin Ali. The team may bid on players like Maxwell, Shakib Al Hasan, David Malan to reduce the dependency on Virat and AB de Villiers.

Hyderabad and Kolkata have the least money (Rs. 10.75 crores) to spend on auction. But, Hyderabad neither needs too many players, nor does it have the space. The team may try to buy an overseas fast bowler after Bill Stanlake leaves. Apart from this, the team may also try to buy back its former player Shakib Al Hasan.

Mumbai can bid on three types of players during the auction. First, the foreign fast bowler who is the backup of Trent Boult. Second, an all-rounder who is Pollard’s backup. Third a spinner because Rahul Chahar and Jayant Yadav were not very effective last time.
