It’s a Cricket Report special this week as Matt Floyd is joined by Isa Guha and Dominic Cork to reflect on all the big stories from the IPL auction.
The trio will take an in-depth look at each of the eight franchises, how they did in the auction and how they are shaping up ahead of April’s season opener.
Much like last year, there is plenty of English interest with eight players snapped up, including Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who will play together at the returning Rajasthan Royals.

The panel will ponder how each of the English contingent will get on in India as well as discussing why some big-name England players such as Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Alex Hales were not picked up.
There is also time to look back briefly at last year’s competition, including a dramatic final in which Mumbai Indians edged out Rising Pune Supergiant.
