Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS):-
Rising Pune Supergiants had a completely different 2016 IPL debut season As they finished seventh in the table. They’ve already released Star Players Who Not Perform Well In previous Season the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Irfan Pathan, T prera from and Ishant sharma who rope Their Base Price 2 crore. their squad However, with the likes of MS Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith, f du plessis and usman khawaja the batting department doesn’t seem improvement. It is the bowling, though, which looks extremely weak and this is something that Pune will look to strengthen. After the release of Irfan Pathan, Ishant, Albie Morkel and Thisara Perera, the bowling attack And All-Rounder does need some new and potent faces which can back up the strong batting line up. With the likes of Trent Boult, Morne Morkel, And Obviously Ben Stocks, tymel mills And All-rounder player Chris Jordan who performed very well in previous series against India munaf patel, Mitchell Johnson’s and kyle abott also available in the auction, the Supergiants will most likely start a bidding war for these pacers.
Purse spent – 48.5 crore
Purse remaining – INR 17.5 crore
Total Players in the squad – 17
Overseas Players in the squad – 5
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
Last year’s IPL saw Royal Challengers Bangalore score heavily with their powerful batting line up. But they did struggle to defend the scores they made very run but struggle to defend . If there is one department that RCB will be looking to strengthen this time around it will be their bowling, especially their death bowling which has let them down consistently. Mitchell Starc alone will not be enough to plug the gap on the runs as he needs support from the other end. Rcb already released the likes of Chris Jordan and Varun Aaron, it will be interesting to see who they pick from this year’s auction. Meanwhile, Tymel Mills t20 SPACIAL Bowler and Ben Stocks will be first choice Of Franchise in place of Kevin Richardson and Chris Jordan.and spinning attack Like Santnera is good choice for Rcb because Iqbal Abdullah and tabrez shamshi is not enough Spinners for Rcb.
Purse spent – 53.175 crore
Purse remaining – 12.825 crore
Total Players in the squad – 20
Overseas Players in the squad – 8
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
This Team consistently running in form at the top of the table, Kolkata Knight Riders have released quite a few notable players which includes the likes of Morne Morkel, Jason Holder, John Hastings and Colin Munro. Adding to that is the ban on Andre Russel which will be a huge matter for the two-time champions. Kkr definitely think about ben stocks in place of Andre Russell This means that quite a few Changes are expected to be on the way. While the spin department looks well settled like Piyush chawla, shakib-al-hasan and KKR’S middle order and the pace attack that KKR will be looking to strengthen as it doesn’t seem strong enough.A reunion with elder brother Yusuf pathan might very well be on the cards if KKR does go in for the much experienced Irfan Pathan or someone like Nathan Coulter-Nile would suit perfectly in the KKR set up.
Purse spent – 46.25 crore
Purse remaining – 19.75 crore
Total Players in the squad – 14
Overseas Players in the squad – 4
Mumbai Indians (MI):-
Mumbai Indians have retained a total of 20 players for this season of the IPL and it looks pretty well settled in all the departments. So it will be hard to predict who they will go for. But whoever they look to prize away from the auction it must be well thought of as they also have the least purse strings to loosen among the other teams. They cannot afford to be unmindful as they did last year, in the case of Nathu Singh, who was bought for a whopping Rs. 3.2 crore from a base price of Rs. 10 lakh. He was ultimately released this year after failing to live up to expectations. They have released the Kiwi pair of Corey Anderson and Martin Guptill. so obviously need some good players who played well for middle order. MI need a good opener like jason roy who start well for the team with captain rohit sharma and mohammed sehzad is also a good choice for team.,
Purse spent – 54.445 crore
