5 Foreign Players Who May Become Expensive Buys During IPL 2024 Auction: The buzz around the IPL 2024 has begun to pick its pace as we head closer to the auctions. The recently passed deadline for the player’s retention played a perfect role in being the ice-breaker for the cricket fans to have discussions. The cricket pundits are now involved in a game of predicting the players who can be potentially targeted by 10 Indian Premier League (IPL) teams.

Player retentions have become instrumental in determining what an IPL franchise is looking to do as far as their squad is concerned. All 10 IPL teams have retained their core set of players while releasing only a handful of them. While a couple of players have been involved in the trades.

The IPL 2024 Auction will not be about the retained players, rather it will be more about the new players who have left a solid impression over a period of time in the lead-up to the auction. Plenty of new players would sign up for the IPL 2024 Auction and the teams would be raring to seal those potential assets during the auction proceedings.

It is noteworthy that the recently held ODI World Cup 2023 would play a huge role in determining the worth of the players. Those who have managed to hop into the limelight with their brilliant performances will certainly fetch a lucrative IPL deal not from one but multiple teams.

This article will lead you through 5 foreign players who may become expensive buys during IPL 2024 Auction:
