Ben Stokes: Base price Rs 2 crore
England captain Ben Stokes is currently counted among the star all-rounders in the world. All ten teams would be looking to get Ben Stokes with them, so when his name is called out, a prize war could break out between the teams. Even before this, Ben Stokes has been sold as the most expensive player in the auction. In the year 2018, he was bought by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 12.5 crore. Ben Stokes missed the IPL of the year 2022 due to personal reasons, which means he is returning after the break. Earlier he was playing for Rajasthan Royals. The Rajasthan team would definitely like to buy him again, but since he is in the auction, other teams will not hesitate to bet on him.
Shakib Al Hasan: Base price Rs 1.5 crore
Bangladesh’s Test captain Shakib Al Hasan is also one of the best all-rounders in the world. He has been playing IPL for the last several years, but his teams have been changing. This time again he will be in the fray in the auction. Shakib Al Hasan is one of those players who has the ability to win matches for his team with both the ball and the bat. Sometimes he has been a member of KKR and sometimes Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both these teams would like to go after him, as well as the rest of the teams must be planning to take him with them considering his performance. Don’t be surprised if Shakib also gets a big bid and he is sold for a higher price.
Sam Karan: Base price Rs 2 crore
England’s Sam Karan is going to come to the auction again this time. In the recently held T20 World Cup 2022, Sam Karan had a big role in making England the winner. He also got the player of the match award in the final. The special thing about Sam Karan is that he bowls fast and has the ability to finish the match by batting in the lower order. Till now Sam Karan has played in IPL for Punjab Kings and Kings XI Punjab. Apart from these two teams, considering his talent, other teams would definitely want to keep Karan on their target. Players like Sam Karan have the ability to win a lost match by changing the map of the match anytime. Big bidding will be seen on them too. It has to be seen how far the last bid on them goes.
