As we are heading towards the end of this year’s Indian Premier League, one question that is viciously doing the rounds across the country is whether the franchises will have to release all their players or they will be allowed to retain few players just like the 2014 auction when the governing body had allowed the franchises to retain five players (either capped or uncapped, no more than four of whom may be capped Indians) who were in its squad in 2013.

As of now, nothing official has come out from the governing body but speculations are rife that the 2018 players auction will be the biggest IPL auction yet, perhaps even longer the 2014 one which went for two days.

Only time will tell about how the next auction pans out but one thing is sure that several big names will go under the hammer. So here we are taking a look at 7 players who we might see in the auction ahead of the eleventh edition of the league.
