As the Indian Premier League (IPL) is less than a month away, all fans are eagerly waiting for the mega event to begin and keeping a track of the preparations of all the 8 teams. The franchises made sure that they pick the right combinations and overcome the weaknesses of their squads in the auction which was held in Jaipur in December 2018.
