5) Rajasthan Royals

Besides, the Samson-led side has had a liking for English players in the past. Thus, considering their alliance with him in the past, it wouldn’t be surprising if the RR management bid for him once again in the upcoming mega auction.

4) Punjab Kings

Having Archer guarantees them four good overs almost every game. Besides, as they have shown faith in the young Arshdeep Singh, and the 22-year-old can learn a lot from the senior pacer.

3) Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB would need a reliable pacer, who can control the flow of runs, and at the same time, pick wickets. This would also give them the luxury to give Siraj a few overs with the new ball as well. Siraj and Archer can share the new ball and do wonders for the side.

2) Chennai Super Kings

The 27-year-old is the perfect solution to their problem. Not only can he generate the extra pace, but he can also deceive the opposition batters with his variations. Besides, the MS Dhoni-led side has always lacked a bowler possessing express pace.

1) Mumbai Indians

When they defend a total, there have been several instances where the opposition teams have launched a counter-attack on them, and have looked to play aggressively.In such a scenario, Rohit Sharma brings Bumrah for an extra over. Thus, this denies the 27-year-old a chance to bowl the extra over at the death.
