Potential team XIs and how each team did

Let's have a quick gander at possible team XIs, and what each team did well, and where the gaps are.
Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, Deepak Chahar, Bravo/Santner/Jordan, Adam Milne, Asif/Deshpande.
They've managed to keep a large part of their core together, and also given themselves options to bat deep with a lot of bowling options - courtesy all-round talent. As always, a team not to be taken lightly.
Delhi Capitals: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Mandeep/Sarfaraz/Bharat, Rowman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Lalit Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya.
They've got superb firepower through their top order, right down to Rovman Powell at six. They can pick a bowling attack of five bowlers where three can bat. If Mitchell Marsh also bowls, it's almost a bonus. They look good.
Gujarat Titans: Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Jayant/Sai Kishore, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
They've got some gun players in the XI, but they'll probably need outstanding seasons from both Hardik and Rashid, who have to lead the way in this team.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Sam Billings, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy.
The batting looks a bit thin at the top, as it did last year. Unless one of the uncapped buys KKR picked up towards the end of the auction pay off for them, they'll probably need their top order to show more urgency. The bowling could still win them games.
Lucknow Super Giants: KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, K Gowtham, Ravi Bishnoi, Mark Wood, Avesh Khan.
A potent first XI, and they still have back-ups in Dushmantha Chameera, Shahbaz Nadeem and Evin Lewis. The batting has variety and depth, the bowling likewise. A superb performance in their first ever auction.
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen/Daniel Sams, Sanjay Yadav, M Ashwin/Mayank Markande, Tymal Mills, Jasprit Bumrah.
Despite lacking Jofra Archer's services for 2022, Mumbai brought out the big hits at the end and have once again built a squad that can challenge for the title. It's not as awe-inspiring as the 2018-2021 version was, but that could change in IPL 2023, when Archer is back.
Punjab Kings: Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Prabhsimran/Bawa/Jitesh, Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh.
They had the biggest purse coming in, and have they made it count. Punjab have a potential XI that's power-packed right through the order. In addition, their bowling has variety and depth. Not since 2014, have Punjab entered an IPL season with a squad so full of exciting possibilties.
Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Neesham/Coulter-Nile, R Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
Rajasthan had a superb Day 1 at the auction, which meant most of their pieces were in place. They can put out a good XI on the field, with the batting particularly looking good. The bowling has some outstanding names too, with the only possible grey area being the death bowling.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik, Lomror/Sisodia, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Shahbaz Ahmed, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj
The Royal Challengers will be happy with their squad. They can put out an XI that has plenty of quality bowling options, and have a batting line-up that runs deep-ish too. They also have the likes of Finn Allen and Sherfane Rutherford as back-ups, as well as David Willey.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd/Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Kartik Tyagi/Umran Malik.
They overloaded on bowling options, staying true to type, but a middle order of Williamson, Markram and Pooran is pretty good, all things considered.

It's been an action-packed two days

And each team will feel that they have done well in their own ways... However, there's going to be only one winner at the end of the day. And less than half the teams will have 'successful' seasons - if success is measured by making the play-offs.
We'll bring you all the snap analysis of each franchise in a moment.

Chennai Super Kings' auction explained

The Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan spoke about the defending champions' auction to host broadcaster Star Sports.
Retaining the core: At the end of yesterday, nine of ten were ex-CSK players. We had planned as always. Credit to the skipper and coach, who work on the balance of the team.
On missing out on Faf and Shardul: He has been the most consistent player for us over the years and has done well with the bat. Knowing about his performances and the kind of player he is, we thought we must go after him. Disappointed to miss out on Faf. Both of those were crucial players of our team and Faf was with us over a decade. But we were disappointed to not have enough money for them. We thought the best replacement for Faf can be Conway, as he is doing well in all formats. Fleming knows about his credentials. Milne was in the IPL earlier and we needed a quick bowler replacing Hazlewood.
On Shivam Dube: He is an Indian all-rounder who is available. As far as the XI goes, it is up to the captain and the coach and I have no say.
On the team combination: I will never say we are a champion side every year. We will set the process right. We have a balanced team, as far as we are consistent, the result will come.

Andy Flower speaks

Andy Flower has been one of the smartest T20 coaches going around, finding success across leagues and franchises. With him at the helm, Lucknow Super Giants did pretty well for themselves. Speaking to host broadcaster Star Sports, Flower outlined his franchise's strategy:
On splitting roles with Gambhir during the auction: Gautam’s got a great cricket brain. I have enjoyed spending time with him. Looking forward to working closely with him. I respect his thinking about the game. He has a vast experience with IPL auction.
Multi-faceted players’ focus: There are a number of all-rounders. We have a potential of having K Gowtham at 8 or Holder at 7, which will stand us in good stead. Avesh Khan is a superb operator, looking forward to Mark Wood haring in. We have a lot of attacking options and that is the sort of cricket we want to play.
Getting Quinton de Kock at the price they did: We budgeted for a little more for Quinton, so we think we got a good deal. He keeps well, and a left-hander, which is a nice balance to have with KL Rahul.
On the pace attack: Mark Wood is one of the quicker bowlers in the world, seen recently in the Ashes where he clocked 150kmps. With him getting rest between IPL games, exciting to see him bowl. Having seen Avesh Khan over the last few years, looks very exciting. I think they should be a potent combination.

Only six teams in the running

Both CSK and PK have exhausted their upper limit of players, and have 25 players each.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, have exhausted their budget, so they're out too. SRH have also practically exhausted their budget because they have only 10 lakh left, and the minimum base price is 20 lakh.
So it will be only Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Bangalore.
Each team can submit only 2 names, so we're going to have a maximum of only 12 names coming under the hammer.

Another accelerated auction round coming up

Each team can submit two player names now. This is likely to be the final round of this mega auction.
