Another New Zealand player appears in this list and the name is of Luke Ronchi now. He was present at the auctions last year as well at a base price of ₹75 lakhs but still remained unsold.

Ronchi proved himself as a good T20 batsman as he was the leading run scorer in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) where he scored 435 runs in 11 matches at a healthy average of 43.50 and a jaw-dropping strike-rate of 182 for the defending champions Islamabad United and hence is expected to make it big in the auctions.

3.Dwayne Smith (West Indies)

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v Barbados Tridents - 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Tournament

Dwayne Smith is one the most experienced overseas players in the history of the tournament with a total of 91 matches a handful of teams. But, the 37-year-old failed to grab any buyers for himself in the previous year's auction.

In the recent season of CPL, he racked up 174 runs in eight encounters with a top score of 58 against St Lucia Stars and is currently signed up with Northern Warriors in the T10 League which is being played at the Sharjah Cricket Ground. Thus, he is expected to grab buyers for himself, thanks to his current form and the kind of balance he brings to the side.
