The eight regular bidders will be joined by two new ones from Kochi and Pune, adding the Roys to challenge the Mallyas and the Ambanis. That’s, though, not all! After getting an interim relief from the High Court in the form of stay on their termination by the BCCI, the presence of King’s XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals is set to make the BCCI and fellow bidders uncomfortable.
The two-day-long tug of war over bidding for top players is set to be intense, with only two teams – Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians – using the retention clause to its fullest by retaining four players. That means many of the top players like Gautam Gambhir, AB de Villiers, Yusuf Pathan, Yuvraj Singh, Adam Gilchrist and Chris Gayle are up for grabs.
