10. Mohammed Siraj
The right-arm pacer has been in top-notch lately and showcased his potential across formats. If RCB doesn’t retain him, Siraj will definitely set the auction on fire.
9. Jason Roy
Roy is indeed one of the most destructive openers going around. The England dasher is all but likely to get released by SRH ahead of the mega auction. Hence, many franchises might fight for him.
8. Mark Wood
A veteran of just 1 IPL cap, England pacer Mark Wood is a much-improved T20 bowler now. He can set a speed gun on fire and this would prompt many teams to buy him.
7. Jonny Bairstow
Roy’s fellow England opener Jonny Bairstow might also get released by SRH. However, his prowess with the glove and bat would surely fetch him big bids.
6. Devon Conway
The New Zealand dasher has emerged as one of the hottest properties in world cricket. Many teams would like to have such a destructive batsman in the top order.
5. Jason Holder
Holder is another star player who might not be retained by SRH. Nevertheless, he’s likely to fetch some big bucks in the auction event.
4. Suryakumar Yadav
MI might not be able to retain Suryakumar Yadav with many big names in the side. Hence, don’t be surprised if you see teams breaking banks to get the dasher’s services.
3. Lockie Ferguson
Ferguson has express pace at his disposal and he has done well in IPL as well. Hence, if KKR releases him, the New Zealand speedster would go for plenty.
2. Jos Buttler
Buttler can walk into any T20 team in the world and RR must not release him. However, if they do, Chris Morris’ record of fetching the highest bid in IPL might be in danger.
1. Kane Williamson
Williamson might not be a hard hitter of the ball but his prowess in T20 games is hidden from none. The SRH skipper would surely bag millions if his name pops up in the bidding event.
