Here’s what the 10 teams need and what they can do to fill the spots.

Chennai Super Kings (wallet left:Rs 20.45 crore)

Following the dismissal of Dwayne Bravo and Robin Uthappa, the four-time champion is looking to bring on board a speedy overseas all-rounder who will also help add weight to his lean batting lineup. CSK can keep an eye on English all-rounder Sam Curran, which he acquired in 2019 for Rs 5.5 billion. Considering Ambati Rayudu and his MS Dhoni are there, a strong intermediate racket is also on his CSK’s wish list, and lately he’s struggled to score consistently in fast clips. While the Spins department looks set to settle, CSK wants a reserve fast bowler with real pace to complement Deepak Chahar and Mukesh his Chowdhury and ease his injury woes. increase.

Mumbai Indians (wallet left:2.055 billion rupees)
The five-time champion has mostly kept his core, but Kieron Pollard’s absence gives the Mumbai Indians concern for the first time since his 2010. It has decent firepower at the top and middle of the batting order, but it also has a bowling all-rounder on its radar that can provide a sixth bowling option. At the forefront, however, are the injury-prone Jasprit Bumra and the replacement pacesetter for Jofra Archer, whose tournament fitness is under the clouds. Kumar Kartikeya and Hrithik Shokeen gave glimpses of their ball skills at his IPL 2022, but MI wants to see more experience and diversity in the spin department, with figures like Adil Rashid and Adam Zampa you can look to With Tristan Stubbs being the only reserve wicketkeeper on the roster, the Indians could be eyeing a reserve for Ishan Kishan.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (wallet left:Rs 8.75 crore)

His RCB, who is chasing his first title, doesn’t have the cash to gamble. The rest of the wallet is his second smallest and still has some holes to fill. The Indian hitter is at the top of his checklist. Working with skipper Faf Du Plessis, it could be India’s opening batsman who places Virat Kohli in his preferred third spot. If Kohli opens up further, RCB could settle for an option in his order of Medium. Strong contenders for these roles, Mayank Agarwal and Manish Pandey, could anchor the innings and compensate for power hitters like Glenn Maxwell and Rajat Patidar. RCB’s overseas players du Plessis, Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga and Josh Hazlewood are self-selected and unlikely that the franchise will break the bank by filling his two remaining overseas slots.

Kolkata Knight Riders (wallet left:70.5 billion rupees)

Knight Riders are faced with the dilemma of having to fill the second most slots with the smallest available wallet. The INR 7.05 crore needs to be tweaked to get the wicketkeeper and opening batsman. Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who has yet to make his IPL debut, is the team’s only recognized wicketkeeper. Given that Garbaz is playing, he needs an opening partner, preferably an Indian, as Tim Saussy, Sunil Narin and Andre Russell fill the remaining overseas spots. Narayan Jagadeesan, Vivrant Sharma, Shubham Khajuria and Rohan Kunnummal are options KKR might consider given their tight wallets. Mayank Agarwal is an ideal candidate, but the former Punjab Kings skipper could be suspended from a financially troubled franchise.

Delhi Capitals (wallet left:Rs 19.45 crore)

Only after he released five players, Capitals looks like an established team before the auction. There is still a hefty sum of Rs 19.45 crore left to tie up five players, with room to target a few Big His names. Some of them could include Ben Stokes, Sam Curran and Jason Holder. But given that the Rishab Punt-led side is piling up with bowling firepower, Delhi could look to invest more aggressively in batters hovering in the middle order. clan chief. The Capitals are also considering a specialist finisher, with Riley Rothuw and Nicolas Poulain emerging as frontrunners for the role. Like most teams, the Capitals also need their captain and wicketkeeper’s pants covered, and they can look to K.S. Bharat, which the franchise purchased at his INR 20 million at a lower price in a previous auction.

Sunrise Hyderabad (wallet left:Rs 42.25 crore)

After a disappointing season that lasted his second year in a row, the Sunrisers are slated for a major overhaul. After Kane Williamson’s release, they can first look for a leader and consider Mayank Aggarwal, Ben Stokes, Jason Holder, and Nicholas Pullan for the job. The process involves maximizing the power of the Rs 42.25 crore fat wallet to make Abhishek Sharma a quick scoring opening partner. Jason Roy and Cameroon Green are viable options and Riley Rosou would be an exciting prospect in the middle tier alongside Rahul Tripathi and Abdul Samad and compatriot Aiden Markram. Wanted at the table, Zhampa, Rashid and all-rounder Sikandar Raza are all in contention. The pace department is rallying around Bubneshwar Kumar and Umran Malik, with management keen on Adam Milne, Chris Jordan and Jaydev Unadkat.

Rajasthan Royals (wallet left:1.32 billion rupees)

The top-heavy Rajasthan Royals seek stability in the middle orders that have long plagued them. Shimron Hetmyer could end the innings with a swing, but the Royals are looking for someone who can set the stage for a late swing or stabilize the ship in case of early wickets. Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, and Sikandar Raza are options that fit the RR mold, with the latter two also providing teams with additional bowling options. True all-rounders like Ben Stokes, Cameroon Green and Jason Holder can overcome their lack of depth while adding the pace battery of Trent Boult, Prashid Krishna and Kuldeep Sen.

Punjab Kings (Purse Left:Rs 32.2 crore)

The franchise will have a new leader in Shikhar Dhawan and will want to continue its aggressive brand of cricket with the bat. With a settled batting line-up, which includes hard hitters Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone and Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada forming a world-class pace duo, Punjab Kings will focus on getting a quality all-rounder and a spinner as backups for Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar. The franchise has the second biggest purse remaining and roping in hot property Ben Stokes or Cameroon Green could be feasible for the Kings. Punjab’s high-risk, high-reward approach with the bat is prone to collapses, and it could look for an anchor in Manish Pandey or Kane Williamson and Joe Root among overseas options.

Lucknow Super Giants (Purse Left:Rs 23.35 crore)

Super Giants are stacked with all-rounders but will need to bolster its batting as it lacks specialisation in that department. After a solid opening pairing of Captain KL Rahul and Quinton de Kok, a solid option in the middle order supports the team well. Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni and Deepak Hooda will be in charge of the finish. After letting Dushmantha Chameera go, LSG are in need of a reinforcement for injury-ridden Mark Wood, which could break Sam Curran’s bank. Jason Holder has been sacked from Lucknow and to the surprise of most, the move could set the stage for a major deal with Ben Stokes or Cameroon Green.

Gujarat Titans (wallet left:Rs 19.25 crore)

As expected, defending his champion Gujarat his Titans haven’t opted for too many changes after winning the title in their first season. An area that could be focused on, however, would be a fast bowling unit that no longer has Rocky Ferguson’s frenetic pace.Alzari Joseph and Mohamed Shammi reinforcements are needed, and overseas options are on the table in this regard. may consider. Reliable batting options are also something Gujarat is eyeing. Sai Sudharsan was fairly consistent in the middle order, while Abhinav Manohar was active towards the end of the inning. Hardik Pandya’s side wants a smart combination of the two to support David Miller
