Having released a solid middle-order batsman like Robin Uthappa and with Nitish Rana under the scanner for age fudging, they might go for a proven Indian batsman with INR 20 lakh base price.
So, how much did each of the franchises spent at the auction table?
Young Afghanistan players have put forth their names for the upcoming 2020 IPL Auction to be held in Kolkata on the 19th of December.
Franchises are expected to be very specific about their picks depending on their needs.
The rivalry is set to extend to the auction table, as the two franchises look to strengthen their squad in all departments which might very well result in a bidding war between them.
Though all the teams have retained most of their pivotal players, still the auction list carries some heavy names who could start a bidding war.
Some franchises are keen on re-bidding and buying some of their released players for a cheaper cost.
332 players have been confirmed to go under the hammer on 19th December in Kolkata.
These players deserved to be retained by their respective franchises.
These hardworking released players can be termed 'unlucky'.
