The most shocking name in this above list of players with Rs 2 crore base price if that of Kedar Jadhav. He is 38 now and did not get any IPL team last time around. Yet Kedar has opted to put himself in the Rs 2 crore category. Wonder if any side will be interested in buying him for such a big amount.
Quite interestingly, New Zealand's emerging all-rounder Rachin Ravindra has kept his base price at Rs 50 lakh but expect this number to grow as there is potentially an intense fight written for him.
Apart from Ravindra, the players will have the attention of the franchises are Travis Head and Starc. The World Cup winners have made themselves available for the IPL this year. Starc is returning to the fold after a very long break. Head, at the same time, is Player of the Match in World Cup final. He is an explosive top-order batter and expect the likes of Kolkata Knight Riders, Punjab Kings to go after him and get into a heated fight in the auction room.
