IPL Auction 2018 live streaming : In the Indian Premier League 2018 or IPL 2018, the two stalwarts, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be back in the game. They had been under suspension for the duration of 2 years and are all set to make a return. This will mark a truly game-changing comeback. A lot is being expected. Another important matter that has proved to be rather intriguing is and frankly, somewhat a setback is that the two renowned teams, Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiants will be deprived of the game and will not make it to the list because there is only space for eight teams to compete at the 2018 IPL.

Now the idea of open player auction has been well-received by some while jilted by others. Some are being optimistic about it while others are sceptical about to what extent it may prove to be beneficial to the cause. Some of the franchise owners are on board with the open player auction idea while others don’t want to opt for that. Apparently, the teams will have the chance to retain any two players from the roster and they will not be subjected to open player auction. The rest of the squad has to be selected via the aforementioned procedure.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super kings will the make the best of this opportunity and retain their best players. Chennai Superkings (CSK) will retain Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni while Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will retain AB De Villiers and ViratKohli.

If the officials and authorities decide to go with open player auctions, then new, refined squads with new captains might be seen. This might stir things up and bring a change to the game. Whether the change will be good or bad is yet to be seen. The revelations will be made next year so all one can do is wait.
