IPL auction 2018: 5 overseas players who could be more expensive than Virat Kohli
These are top 5 overseas players who performed excellently in IPL 2017.
The mega-auction for IPL 2018 will see many small and big stars grappled up by the franchises of the league. However, all eight teams have already made some retentions into their squad.
Royal Challengers Bangalore's Virat Kohli, with Rs. 17 crore, is the most expensive retention in the history of the tournament.
However, the bids for certain foreign players can match this number, or even go a step ahead of it. Here are five names that can create tremendous tension during the auction and rake up high numbers:
#5 Chris Lynn
Former Kolkata Knight Riders player Chris Lynn had to discontinue the last season due to a serious leg injury.
However, his tremendous batting in last 7 matches of IPL was unforgettable,.Lynn scored 295 runs off those 7 matches.
Though his performance was excellent in last season, he wasn't included in the retention list of KKR, which was surprising. But strong rumours suggest that the team is looking to have him onboard again through the RTM policy.
However, since Lynn is available for auction, he is all set to go for an expensive price.
