The IPL auction was an interesting affair with players like Ben Stokes and Tymal Mills, T Natarajan and Mohammed Siraj. getting their dream deals. There were wasted year for Ishant Sharma and irfan pathan, imran tahir.
In this year auction Some teams got what they wanted whishlist some had to make do with whatever was left. If we are Talking about The first IPL where MS Dhoni, the most successful captain in domestic T20, will not be captaining a side is building up to be an interesting one given the number of shuffles that have taken place and the number of new players inducted.
While it is too early to call which team will take the credit of winning the trophy 🏆, it is not a bad time to look at which squad has the most balance. Here’s the top 3 in my opinion.

Most Balanced Squad In Ipl 2017
#1. Royal Challengers Bangalore
Bangalore is probably the first-most balanced team in the IPL 2017 despite being the second highest spenders at the IPL auction. Their batting LINE up is in genius hands with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle and Shane Watson. Sarfaraz khan and rcb wicketkeeper opener batsman Lokesh Rahul. however, it is the bowling which is a huge problem.
The absent of Mitchell Starc made RCB bid aggressively for England’s Tymal Mills. It remains to be seen if Mills, who has restricted himself only to T20 cricket due to a back injury, will justify the $1791000(12crore) price tag. RCB would hope for Indian players like Yuzvendra Chahal who recently performed well and iqbal Abdullah to come good.
New Zealand’s aggressive fast bowler Adam Milne could also be a good option, not forgot to mention the bowling contributions of Watson, Harshal Patel, tabrez shamshi and recently bought players aniket choudhary and pawan negi.
#2 Sunrisers Hyderabad
The Sunrisers look formidable with David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan at the top followed by Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh who was in good form against England recently.
Every one knows that Srh bowling is their strength with Chris Jordan and Mustafizur Rahman, who are death bowling specialists and Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who can swing the ball early. Ben Cutting, Barinder Sran and Moises Henriques and in last season as we see Warner is the only batsman who constantly performed well with the Bat but in this season some reliable options are available just like kane Williamson, yuvraj singh, and moises hanriques, Ben cutting who hit very explosively and in this season srg found 2 very key all-around Mohammad nabi and Chris Jordan who can bowl 8 overs with minimum economy and also performe well with the bat.
It remains to be seen if Sunrisers should have really splurged so much on leg-spinner Rashid Khan from Afghanistan, who cost them more than Mustafizur, Jordan and Henriques put together!
#3 Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR is one of the few teams that understands and also exhibits business sense (banye ka dimag aur miya bhai ki daring)when it comes to buying players. And why not Shah Rukh Khan, who became owner. Rarely do they splurge, often picking awesome deals by requesting for players not picked the first time in the auctions. They have done amazingly well in their strategy and will continue to do so.
Even this year, they picked a high-value player like Chris Woakes, one of England’s shining points during the England tour for a third of Ben Stokes’ price. KKR have the quality of Trent Boult, Woakes and Nathan Coulter-Nile with the ball along with spinners like Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav.
They have accumulators in Gautam Gambhir and Manish Pandey, two Indian players equally capable of steering matches and coming up with the big shots. While Yusuf Pathan and rowman Powell who bought to fill the gap of kkr key players Andre Russell has the X-Factor, KKR also have the experience of Shakib Al Hasan. Umesh Yadav, Suryakumar Yadav, Robin Uthappa and the promising Ankit Rajpoot ensure that their Indian contingent is impressive and that the team is not dependent on its foreign players to pull through.
So, here the list of top 3 teams squads which have a good team. share your opinion about other team.
