IPL 2016 player drafts: Live pick of the tweets

On Tuesday, all the limelight will be on MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Suresh Raina Ravichanrdran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane as the five top players each from the suspended franchises Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) go to new Indian Premier League (IPL) teams Pune and Rajkot in the players’ draft.

The IPL 2016 players draft will be held at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) in Mumbai where fate of 10 players will be decided. The remainder of 40 players will go to February’s auction pool. Dhoni is still expected to be the top pick while Jadeja and Ashwin, who had a great series against South Africa recently, should be favourites too.

With Pune getting the first chance and Dhoni being the obvious first choice, there’s a strong possibility of Jadeja turning out for his home-town Rajkot, who bid second. Also overseas players like Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Steven Smith could end up being the big buys.
