The IPL 2018 auction will take place in Bengaluru on January 27 and 28 where a total of 578 players will go under the hammer with 282 overseas players.
The 11th edition of IPL will see many new faces and also the flow of money has increased but some old champions are still the favourites.
There are 16 players awarded marquee status and those are: Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Benjamin Stokes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Christopher Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Ajinkya Rahane, Dwayne Bravo, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Kane Williamson, Faf Du Plessis, Joe Root, Shakib Al Hasan and Yuvraj Singh.
Ben Stokes was the most expensive bid in the last edition of IPL and even this year, he is eying big money.
Though Glenn Maxwell was axed from Australia's squad for the one-day international (ODI) series against England but he is definitely among most favourites.
