Ben Stokes is the expensive buy of IPL 2017 10th edition, where 66 players being selected out of 351. Here is the list where the teams stand after IPL auction 2017.
Delhi Daredevils includes 4 overseas players Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, De Kock and JP Duminy. The second highest team to spend more worth Rs 23.1 crore in IPL 2017. In last IPL season, DD lacked behind due to top order batsman. But still this year nothing is done special as JP Duminy has the only experience to play middle order on another hand De Knock is just too young for playing top order. Angelo Mathews and Corey Anderson could be good openers, still, it is interesting to see who will Rahul Dravid prefer for top order batsman.
Gujarat Lions based in Rajkot is one of the teams who has not spend too much for the picked up player except Janson Roy who was bought for Crore. The Lions are the new team in Indian Premier League after Chennai Super Kings. The team is all well set but Suresh Raina the current captain of the team take concern for the bowlers.[adToAppearHere]
Kings XI Punjab:
The Kings XI Punjab-based in Mohali remains the weakest team of IPL till now. With the slow start, they last lose first two games in early IPL. In this season also they only have the power of Eoin Morgan who bought up for Rs. 2 crore who brings a lot of hopes for the team. Looking for Indian bowlers Murali Vijay and Wriddiman Saha are not the part of Indian’s limited sides. Playing for championship match they should take care for balanced bowling lineups and effective top orders batting.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkatta Knight Riders represent city Kolkatta in IPL. With not so good performance of Andre Rusell and Morne Morkel, the captain already searching new player for the team and this time it was Chris Woakes, Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter-Nile who plays well and hope to face upcoming challenges for the team in IPL 10 edition.
Looking for performance and power pack team, Mumbai Indians always proves themselves right. In this edition of IPL 2017, this is the most stable team where mostly they have the last season players. Lead under Rohit Sharma it will be very interesting to see the bowling of Karn Sharma and Harbhajan Singh also Kunal Panday spins. Mitchell Johson will be spotted different for his lot of experience.
Rising Pune Supergiants:
Rising Pune Supergiants represents city Pune. This time they spend more for England player Ben Stokes along with Dan Christian well know for their aggressive play. On another hand Jaydev Unadkat is best suitable to solve the problem of the fast bowler.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Royal challengers Bangalore comes up with the balanced team this time. They already have string squad and replace Mitchell Starc successfully with Tymal Mills bought up for 50 lakhs. Indian player Pawan Negi could be a good support while Aniket Choudhary could be a surprise performer of this season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad the Hyderabad team line-up with strong batting and bowling power still unable to replace Amit Sharma as he left to play for Delhi Daredevils. The team bought up Rashid Khan, Pavin Tambe and Mohammad Nabi as the replacement. The English man Chris Jordan can bring surprise with his play while Mohammed Siraj could be the trump card.
