Twitter reactions for the IPL Player Draft

Krishna Chopra / 15 December 2015

The Player Draft process for the 2 new franchises for the upcoming edition of the IPL has just been completed. As expected, India’s limited overs skipper MS Dhoni, and captain of the defunct Chennai Super Kings was the first player to be chosen. Dhoni was drafted in the Pune side for 12.5 crores while Rajkot first drafted Dhoni’s former teammate Suresh Raina.

All in all, Rajkot seems to have a stronger side as their arsenal consists of batting giants such as Suresh Raina and Brendon McCullum. They also have three all-rounders in Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, and Dwayne Bravo. The Pune side consists of Dhoni, R. Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, Faf Du Plessis and Steve Smith.
