Gujarat, the defending champions, had a great strategy of not spending a lot of money in the auction because they already had a good core from the previous season. They did, however, manage to secure some big names in the auction. Kane Williamson and Joshua Little have been added to the team for the upcoming season.

The Chennai team had one of the best purchases at the auction as they bagged England’s Test captain Ben Stokes for a whopping price of 16.25 crores. This gives their team great depth in all-rounders and also brings in a potential captaincy candidate.


The five-time champions, Mumbai, had a great day at the auction. To begin with, they bagged Australia’s star all-rounder Cameron Green, and then purchased Jhye Richardson and leg spinner Piyush Chawla later on. With this, the Mumbai team managed to fill in all the voids in their team.
