The IPL auctions for the 11th season took place on January 27-28. A total of 578 players went under the hammer in this year’s IPL Auction, major retentions took place, a lot of overseas and Indian players were bought for lump sum amount but many of them went unsold.
Here is a list of these players with their roles in various departments:
Openers: Alex Hales, Martin Guptill, Hashim Amla, Dwayne Smith, Unmukt Chand(uncapped)
Number 3: Joe Root, Cheteshwar Pujara
The above list of players can create a lot of damage against any opposition especially as openers and can make the best of the powerplay overs while the No. 3 players can provide stability if any wicket falls early. The No.3 players can play at a strike rate of 100 while others can easily go beyond 130-140+.
