Cricket fans wait for the summer season to watch the Indian Premier League. IPL is the biggest T20 league in the world. Every cricketer aspires to create an impact in the Indian Premier League. IPL teams invest heavily in pre-auction strategies to form a perfect team combination consisting of good batting depth and various bowling options.
