Following could be the 10 most sought after players in IPL Auction 2018 :

Joe Root (England)

The English Test skipper has proven his worth across all formats, making the national team a force to reckon with in the last few years. He recently expressed his desire to play in the IPL. If at all a player of Root’s calibre joins this elite tournament, its status will only rise and thefans would take the privilege to welcome the 26-year-old.

2. Ben Stokes (England)

This 26-year-old lad requires no introduction as he is already touted as the greatest all-rounder of this generation. Considering the fact that this guy can perform even with the pressure a heavy price tag attached to his name, franchises will battle it out against each other to rope him into their team. His all-round abilities and being equally good in all the trades is what makes him such a special player and he’s quite a valuable asset to have on any side.

3. Krunal Pandya (India)

He has such a fabulous record, it’ll come as no surprise if the franchises spend big money on him. Of late, his performances in South Africa representing India A were spectacular and just like his brother, he’s a three-dimensional player who adds a lot of stability to the side.

4. Chris Gayle (West Indies)

No matter how old he is, one thing is certain that his value in the shortest version will remain sky high. Taking his experience, record, and current ability into consideration, Gayle might still get a whopping amount and induce a war amongst the bidders.

5. Kagiso Rabada (South Africa)

Every team needs a marquee bowler in their side and he is definitely one such bowler who can be trusted with the crucial overs. One of the brightest young prospects in the fraternity, Kagiso Rabada has been lethal with his aggressive fast bowling over the last couple of years.

6. Chris Morris (South Africa)

One of the most underrated players in the current generation, Chris Morris’ value for the side is inexplicably high. With the ball, he terrorizes the opposition and with the bat as well, he always performs when his side needs him. His ability to hit the big shots in crunch moments makes him a brilliant pinch hitter and finisher.

7. Rashid Khan (Afghanistan)

Rashid Khan became an immediate sensation in the IPL after his spectacular rendition in the 10th edition for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He was bought for a handsome amount in the auction and the teenager lived up to the expectations picking up crucial wickets for his side and chocking the opposition more often then not.

8. Faf du Plessis (South Africa)

The South African skipper was under the shadow of AB de Villiers for a long time in his career, but it’s important to remember a fact that he’s as good as anyone in the game. A match-winner in his own way, du Plessis is one of the most versatile batters around.

9. Jos Butler (England)

One of the most explosive middle-order batsmen in the fraternity,Jos Buttlerwas made to open the batting for Mumbai Indians and he didn’t disappoint. The Englishman will have a lot of demand in the auction as there ain’t many cricketers around who can finish the innings like him.

10. Evin Lewis (West Indies)

The 25-year-old Evin Lewis already has 2 T20 International hundreds after his name, both against India. He is a typical West Indian batsman, who brings the Caribbean flavour with every shot he plays. Without a shadow of a doubt, he’s one of the best openers available in the world at present.
