CSK just like MI they had a big star team lineup to choose 5 from it. But unlike MI, CSK valued their players very well to choose MSD, Raina Ashwin, Jaddu and Bravo. The only question is Vijay or Jadeja/Ashwin. Provided that Jaddu can skyrocket the bid easily Ash over Vijay seems not a great choice. But with Ash's local flavor in Chennai, it seems justified. Their only RTM card could be used on Faf/Hussey. They are known for shrewd buys like Hussey, Haydos, Bravo. They must be vigorous to choose most from the old team and might look into some interesting talents in Corey Anderson, Tendoeschate, Morgan, Neesham, Rishi Dhawan, Adam Milne, Ryder, Marlen Samuels, Aaron Finch, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ben Cutting

RR shed their least spenders tag to retain 5 players. Though it may seem brillian, retaining Binny and Samson for 4Crs each is a bit expensive. Though this can't be justified as Binny is in good form and Sanju is a great batting talent. Faulkner's value is increasing by each innings. They might be hoping to get back Hodge with their RTM card. Their 'moneyball' strategy will help them not to worry on their decreased purse.

SRH. Steyn. Dhawan. 2 RTMs. Very impressive choices. 2 RTMs mostly will be either of two: Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Mishra, I sharma

RCB has made an err by retaining just 3 players. With more than 2 players RTM gets reduced to 1. So they should have either gone for 2 more players with just 5.5cr and 4cr worth. Or they should have let lose ABD and should ve caught him with extra RTM card they would ve received. Now their only RTM could be eyed for Zaheer

Mumbai made the most erroneous move by retaining Bhajji and Rayudu inplace of DK and Mitchel Johnson. They already know how they felt without a WK-batsman and how much they paid to get DK. Definitely Rayudu wouldn't be going beyond 4Cr. Also Bhajji is past his prime. But definitely Mitchel Johnson and DK are going to cross 4Cr easily. Provide that DD and KXIP having a bigger purse, DK is a tough choice for MI. Even if they use RTM card for anyone it will burn their already 2/3 empty purse. Probably they will be eyeing Rishi Dhawan/Maxwell/Ojha incase MJ and DK go for a big price

Master Stroke by DD. Now they can escalate the players price easily so that others purse will decrease. Now they also can retain Warner and KP with RTM card. Third can be a tussle between Irfan Pathan, Varun Aaron and Umesh Yadav. Also they need to focus on young talents they have in Unmukt, Juneja, Kaul and Negi

KXIP once again proved they are bad choice makers to retain a foreign player for 12.5cr. They could have used RTM card to wrap Miller, Marsh and Chawla/Mahmood/P Kumar with a full purse. RIP KXIP

RR shed their least spenders tag to retain 5 players. Though it may seem brillian, retaining Binny and Samson for 4Crs each is a bit expensive. Though this can't be justified as Binny is in good form and Sanju is a great batting talent. Faulkner's value is increasing by each innings.

Strange MI haven't retained Johnson. Or are they banking on that one right to match card to buy him back.
