It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the Chennai Super Kings will have to release some big stars to improve upon last season’s dreadful year.
Although the Mumbai Indians retained the IPL Trophy last season, the second time this has happened in the tournament’s history, they too have a big decision to make. Do they keep their winning formula, or do they mix things up and not rest on their laurels? They will be trying to make history by being the first team to win the competition three years in a row.
The Kings XI Punjab and the Rajasthan Royals have always gone down the youth route, and we see this being the case again this year.
The Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore reigned their big spending in slightly last season, but they still both had decent seasons finishing the regular season in fourth and fifth. They will look to build on that this year as they try to get the right blend of working with what they had last season and adding to that this season.
Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are probably the most intriguing teams this season, having had such a good year last year, finishing second and third. The Capitals reached the final but came up short against Mumbai, losing with just eight balls remaining. They both have reasonable budgets left, and with a couple of useful additions, they could go all the way this season.
If the auction is anything like last year, we will be in for a treat. Last season saw Pat Cummins become the most expensive overseas player in IPL history, costing 15.5 Crores. Glenn Maxwell was involved in a bidding war between Kings XI and Delhi, which Punjab won, costing them 10.75 Crores. They also spent 8.5 Crores on Sheldon Cottrell as they pinned all their hopes on the duo, which almost paid off as they missed out on the playoffs, narrowly losing out on net run rate. Although Chris Morris had a relatively poor 2018 IPL season, he was still snapped up for 10 Crores as his form picked up considerably just before the auction took place. This was five times his base price of 1.5 Crores, which was the auction’s biggest surprise. England’s World Cup-winning captain, Eoin Morgan, who hasn’t played in the competition since 2017, was signed by Kolkata for 5.25 Crores.
Questions which many have asked already will be answered soon enough. Like:
- Will Steve Smith leave Rajasthan? If so, who will captain the team in his absence?
- Will Ashwin return to CSK?
- Who will be the most expensive player this season?
- Will Adil Rashid earn his first IPL contract
- Who will sign that big hitter Malan?
Whatever happens, it is sure to be as exciting as years have gone by. Please stay tuned as we bring you regular updates regarding the auction, league, and ticket news.
