Mumbai: IPL season is here again!!! Indian Premiere League 2018, which will begin it’s 11th Edition from April, 04, 2018 is all set with the 8 franchisees and their squads ready to compete. The IPL auction, which was going on for two days in Bengaluru came to an end couple of days back, with the eight franchisees  spending a jaw dropping amount of 431.7 Crore on the players. We saw some major changes in the auction as the franchisees had made it pretty clear that above all what matters is the quality of players and nothing else. A prime example of this was, when Chris Gayle, the wonderful player or the hit machine, was not able to find a place in any of the teams, and after the third round, was placed in the Kings XI Punjab.
