5. Sunrisers Hyderabad

With a bulky purse of INR 68 Crore, the orange army can easily fetch the likes of Shreyas Iyer. Otherwise encompassing Williamson with some veteran names like Eoin Morgan or Shikhar Dhawan can be an interesting choice. Perhaps in such a scenario, the team can again even buy back, their best hero (David Warner).

4. Chennai Super Kings

Perhaps currently, CSK has interesting players like Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja to experiment with. But since it’s a mega auction, they can even bag some other credible candidates at the table. Though their adequate purse won’t allow them to offer whopping deals, picking players like Ishan Kishan can become an apt choice.

3. Punjab Kings

Perhaps as Punjab also possesses the maximum cash amongst all IPL teams, they can look to sign a steadfast cricketer like David Warner. As a zestful individual, Warner can altogether rewrite the history books of the team. The southpaw who’s also known to bring out the best from the least resources at SRH can apply a similar approach with this team.

2. Kolkata Knight Riders

To fit their needs, both Warner and Shreyas Iyer can be ideal entities to lead KKR. Even the young Ishan Kishan can be selected as the future face of the franchise. Overall, it also won’t be a surprise if veterans like Ashwin or Shikhar Dhawan might lead KKR, especially considering their past history of a rewarding experience.

1. Royal Challengers Bangalore

Especially if Shreyas Iyer gets a hefty deal then he can become the second bigwig after King Kohli. Overall, as the red-army also has to pick a sizable replacement of ABD, bagging Iyer seems to be a fitting solution. Hence it won’t be a surprise if RCB goes full throttle to sign a heavyweight figure for its reign.
