Star Indian cricketers like Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Ajinkya Rahane and many others will take part in the auction. The IPL 2018 auction will take place in Bangalore over a span of two days on the 27th and 28th of January. There is a huge bunch of players available and over a thousand cricketers will be taking part in the auction.

The teams are only allowed to hold back on to a maximum of five players. The retentions and RTM’s can be used by the teams in a 3:2 or 2:3 ratio. The retention has already been done and the teams retained their best possible options. Since there are many restrictions in the retention policy, the franchises had to let go of many big names.

Harbhajan Singh was one those big players who were released by the Mumbai Indians. Although they can use their RTM card to buy him back, the chances look very low. The Indian off-spinner was an integral part of Mumbai Indians ever since it’s inaugural edition.

However, the ‘Turbanator’ is still battling hard to make a comeback into the squad. With age not on his side, it’s pretty difficult for him to make a comeback. But, given that he is a great fighter, he won’t let it go easy.

In a recent event, Harbhajan posed along with the IPL trophy. He took it to Twitter to make the teams aware that he is the first player to have touched the trophy this year. On a funny note, he also said that picking him up in their team will be an added advantage for the franchises to be able to lift the trophy.

Bhajji tweeted, “First one to lay the hands on the IPL trophy this year.. incentive of getting me in team, you get the trophy with me ! Lol ! #IPLAuction #StarSports #re.imagine”.
