Which team has the strongest batting line-up after today's auction?
The two teams with the strongest batting line-up appear to be Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils. RCB's inclusion in the list comes as no surprise since they have Kohli, ABD, McCullum, de Kock and Woakes. On the other hand, DD played their cards right and have picked up Maxwell, Gauti, Munro, Ali and teen-sensation Prithvi. Moreover, DD had already retained Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer.

Why did Sunrisers spend so much money on Manish Pandey? I think they wasted a lot of money. They should have bought Ambati Rayudu for less money and he is also in good form.
Even though, we agree that Rayudu has been in a better form. He has scored 52*, 44, 8 24, and 53 in Syed-Mushtaq Ali trophy, whereas, Manish Pandey has scored has scored 24,14,11,7 and 9. However, Pandey has been a mainstay in KKR set-up over the past few years and has stabilised the middle-order. For the same reason, Pandey has been bought by SRH.
