Shikhar Dhawan

The opening batsman is one of the prolific performers in the IPL and was one of the highest run-scorer for the Delhi Capitals franchise.

Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer could be the highest ever auction buy (in the 20 crore range) according to the reports. The former Delhi Capitals skipper can be a hot favourite for many franchises.

Mohammed Shami

Senior Indian pacer Mohammad Shami has also been put in the marquee players list due to his string of good performances with the white ball.

Ravichandran Ashwin

India's senior spinner with his spin bowling options and handy skills in batting will also attract the franchises during the auction. 

Kagiso Rabada 

The South African pace ace has been key to the Delhi Capitals' success in the previous two seasons and was the leading bowler with 30 scalps in 2020 when they reached the final.

Rabada, 26, remains one of the few genuine pace bowlers in world cricket and seems to justify his base price of $267,000, with teams expected to shell out big bucks for him.

David Warner

The swashbuckling opener silenced his critics last year with his key role in Australia's maiden T20 World Cup triumph following a poor IPL season with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Warner, 35, who led the side to their only IPL title in 2016, was removed as Hyderabad's captain in the first leg of the pandemic-hit competition, later dropped from the team and finally released.
