Dhoni left behind, these players will be in focus in IPL 2024

Mitchell Starc - Rs 24.75 crore

Starc last played in the Indian Premier League (IPL) back in 2016 but has taken 34 wickets from 27 games in his brief career in the franchise T20 league

Pat Cummins - Rs 20.50 crore

Cummins had rested from the IPL last season to focus on his international cricket commitments, and that move paid off with the pacer leading Australia to the World Test Championship (WTC) and ODI World Cup titles.

Daryl Mitchell - Rs 14 crore

The Kiwi batter had donned the role of the quintessential No. 4 in the recently concluded World Cup, scoring 552 runs at an average of 69 and scoring centuries in both the faceoffs against India.

Harshal Patel - Rs 11.75

Harshal Patel was the purple cap holder in IPL 2021 and possesses a wide set of variations that could be handy in the broad boundaries of Mohali.

Alzarri Joseph - Rs 11.5 crore

Josh Hazlewood. Joseph previously represented Gujarat Titans (GT) and has taken 20 wickets in 19 games in the league at an economy rate of 9.19

Spencer Johnson - Rs 10 crore

played 20 T20 games and taken 17 wickets at an economy of 7.84 in his short career so far. Johnson is still an unproven commodity in the IPL and whether he is worth the price given for him remains to be seen

Sameer Rizvi - Rs 8.4 crore

Rizvi is likely to make his debut in the lucrative franchise T20 league in the coming season, on the back of a power-packed performance for the Kanpur Superstars in the UP T20 League recently.

In 24 T20Is, Rossouw has smashed 624 runs at an average of 36.78 and strike rate of 156.02

Rilee Rossouw - Rs 8 crore

Shahrukh Khan - Rs 7.4 crore

Shahrukh has not done justice to the hype around him in the IPL thus far, but he certainly has the caliber to silence the critics.

Rovman Powell - Rs 7.4 crore

Powell's weaknesses against spin bowling have glaringly come through in recent seasons, but he still remains a fine hitter against pacers, which is a trait that the Royals can capitalise on if they put him to use in specific phases of the innings
