Spin bowlers are expected to command considerable attention during the auction. Notably, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s decision to release Wanindu Hasaranga has stirred discussions and piqued the interest of other franchises. Hasaranga, the Sri Lankan spin maestro, showcased a remarkable performance for RCB, making his IPL debut in 2021.

With 26 matches under his belt, Hasaranga has claimed an impressive 35 wickets in the IPL. While his last season wasn’t exceptional, his phenomenal showing in IPL 2022, where he secured 26 wickets, has raised the bidding prospects for him in the upcoming auction.

Another notable release is England’s star spinner Adil Rashid by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Despite Rashid’s recent IPL performance not living up to expectations and his mixed display in the 2023 ODI World Cup, various franchises are likely to show interest in acquiring his services for IPL 2024.

Among emerging talents, New Zealand’s young bowler Aryan Dutt, who caught the limelight with his splendid performance in the 2023 ODI World Cup, is set to be on the radar of several franchises. Dutt has demonstrated his ability as an economical bowler, particularly effective in the powerplay, making him a sought-after prospect in the upcoming auction.
