The auctions are over, the games will be as enthralling as ever.
Take care and dissect your respective teams!
Adios...
...
Ricky Ponting, Delhi Daredevils coach: We are expecting Gambhir to lead by example. We have a good Indian core, and Glenn Maxwell in the middle order. All in all, it looks good.
...
Venky Mysore on KKR's auction strategy: Obviously it is a very cursory glance you have given. We are quite kicked. I don't know what you mean thin when you have four of the best match-winners in the T20 format with Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, and Sunil Narine. You have probably some of the best bowlers in Starc. Nitesh Rana is one of the best performers. Robin is an all-time IPL performer. Dinesh Karthik is a national player. People rate Shubhman Gill as one of the emerging stars. Our intention was to invest in youngsters. Jaggi is one of the more underrated batsmen going around. I wouldn't call that thin batting.
...
Stephen Fleming, CSK coach: "Bravo at No. 7 gives a lot of options for us. The clock is ticking on for him but we value our senior players," he tells Star Sports.
...
The two Royals, Rajasthan and Bangalore 24, and 23 players each.
...
The usual suspects, CSK, Sunrisers, Mumbai, and Delhi have the full possible contingent- 25 players strong.
...
KKR and KXIP have less than 8 overseas players.They have the smallest squads, 19 and 21 players.
...
CSK bought 25 players, but alas have INR 6.5 crores left over which will now be useless!
...
That does conclude the auction. It has been an action-packed two days. All squads look stacked up and ready to invade the IPL!

Let the games begin!
