The Indian Premier League auction is approaching fast, and there is much excitement about the players going under the hammer. With only 33 players being retained by the 10 franchises, there has been interest shown by total number of 1214 players for the IPL mega auction scheduled in mid-February. But, only 217 of them will be considered for the final bidding process, with the franchise working out with the organizing team of the tournament. This will certainly bring the top players into the auction pool.

There are a lot of names who are going to be available. There will be some fight for the Indian names. But I still believe that Deepak Chahar will be the most expensive; it’s just a gut feel. There will be a lot of teams who will put money on him because he is a three-over powerplay bank.” Chopra said.

“He is a wicket-taker. Even if he is expensive, he will pick up wickets. He is batting alright, and is putting his case forward again and again. Deepak Chahar bowls difficult overs in the powerplay; he is maturing as a player. So I am going with Deepak Chahar as the most expensive Indian bowler in the auction.” Chopra added.
