On the other hand, the IPL teams will enter the auctions with a lot of planning and strategy. It is well that the half of the battle in the IPL is won or lost in the auction, and the teams will like to be on their toes on an all-important day. The team will bid according to the current form of the players and their respective remaining purse.

Consequently, all the eight teams will like to tick the right boxes in the auctions and cover their bases ahead of the season.
