Stokes, Gayle, Root among top foreign stars in IPL auction

England's Joe Root will be among 282 overseas players who will be available for the Indian Premier League player auction 2018 to be held in Bangalore on January 27 and 28

England's Test captain Joe Root has also tried his luck with a total of 282 overseas players hoping to find a buyer. While Gayle wasn't retained by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for this season, Stokes, who played his maiden season of the IPL a year ago, had been the most expensive acquisition of IPL 2017.

Among Australian cricketers, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins top the list, being the most feared pacers in global cricket.

From the Caribbean, Dwayne Bravo, Carlos Braithwaite, Evin Lewis and Jason Holder would be the most sought after players in the IPL 2018 auction. South Africa are close behind with 57 while Sri Lanka and Windies have 39 each.
