The upcoming IPL 2024 auction promises a spectacle of cricketing drama, strategic bidding, and potentially jaw-dropping deals.
The IPL 2024 auction is all set to be held on Tuesday, with Dubai as the chosen venue. The IPL 2024 auction stage is set for franchises to strategically build their squads with a total of ₹250 crore in play for 77 slots.
Among the myriad stars set to go under the hammer, three players stand out as potential game-changers. Check details on 3 players who can get more than 10 Crore bids at IPL 2024 auction.
1. Mitchell Starc (Base Price: Rs. 2 crore)
Mitchell Starc is no stranger to the limelight. Having clinched his second World Cup title in the recent cricketing extravaganza, Starc’s IPL absence since 2015 has only fueled the speculation surrounding his potential return.
At 34, the left-arm speedster is undeniably in the twilight of his career, but his lethal pace and ability to swing the new ball make him a perennial hot property.
The question remains: Will franchises vie for Starc’s services, potentially making him the most expensive buy of the auction?
2. Rachin Ravindra (Base Price: Rs. 50 lakh)
In the unpredictable world of cricket, few stories are as captivating as the rise of Rachin Ravindra. The New Zealand all-rounder, thrust into the spotlight during the 2023 World Cup due to fortuitous circumstances, emerged as a revelation on the Indian subcontinent.
With a base price of Rs. 50 lakh, Ravindra’s utility as a proficient spinner and a handy lower-order batsman makes him a potential dark horse in the bidding war.
As franchises seek adaptable and versatile players, Ravindra’s unpredictability may translate into a substantial bid, far exceeding his modest base price.
3. Wanindu Hasaranga (Base Price: Rs. 1.5 crore)
Priced at ₹1.5 crore, Hasaranga brings to the table a good T20 package. A crafty spinner, explosive lower-order batsman, and a reliable fielder, Hasaranga embodies the modern-day T20 all-rounder.
His stellar performance in the IPL 2022 auction triggered a bidding war between Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
As the first spinner bowling all-rounder available, Hasaranga’s scarcity and his demonstrated skills elevate his market value.
Will the auction witness a repeat of the fierce bidding that marked his entry into the IPL, potentially boosting him into the elite club of ₹10 crore-plus earners?
