The auction of the Indian Premier League has always proved to be very competitive. Many star players do not sell and, sometimes, it is because they have put a very high base price for themselves.

At this year’s auction, it will be even more competitive because most franchises have established squads.

Here is a look at five players who have raised the prices of the base.

  1. Colin Ingram

Colin Ingram, who has put a base price of millions of rupees, has played only three IPL games in his career. The first-order hitter presented to the Delhi Daredevils in 2011.

Ingram had a decent Afghanistan Premier League with 206 runs in 9 games, but a base price of Rs 2 crore might be a bit too much for the South African.

Corey Anderson, who had a base price of millions of rupees last season, was not sold during the auction. However, he was selected by the Royal Challengers Bangalore after the fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile was ejected from the season due to an injury.

This year, Anderson may face the same fate. He played only three games last season, scoring 15 runs and taking 3 windows.

Angelo Mathews, who did not play the IPL last year, has put a base price of Rs 2 crore. Sri Lanka does not have a big record in the T20. He has a batting average of 25.63 and a bowling average of 31.73.

He played only two games in the SLC T20 league this year, scoring 58 runs in total.

  1. Jonny Bairstow

The Englishman Jonny Bairstow may have misread the IPL market when he cited a base price of 1.5 million rupees. The wicketkeeper-batsman has shown good form in the recent T10 and Test matches he has presented, but his T20 record is below average.

The 29-year-old recorded a batting average of 24.61 in 96 T20 games.

Rilee Rossouw of South Africa has not played an international match since October 2016. The first-order hitter may have also gone over a bit with a base price of 1.5 million rupees.

Rossouw, who averages 26.16 in his T20 career, has also not performed well in the Mzansi Super League.
