Sunil Narine (Kolkata Knight Riders) | The mystery spinner from West Indies can bamboozle batsmen with his numerous variations and punish bowlers when walking out to open the innings for KKR.

His blitz at the top of the order gives the team a perfect platform to build on and KKR will be hoping their Rs 12.5 crore player will help them lift a third IPL title this season.

Hardik Pandya (Mumbai Indians) | Mumbai spent Rs 11 crore to retain their star all-rounder who has seen his stock rise in recent years. MI first signed Pandya for just Rs 10 lakhs in the 2015 season but his swashbuckling performances soon saw his contract jump to Rs 11 crore in the 2018 season. A big hitter and a fast-bowling all-rounder, Pandya has become indispensable to the MI set-up bringing balance and a flurry of big shots to the side. The fact that he is also excellent in the field is an added bonus for the team. (Image: BCCI, iplt20.com)
