Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is eager to participate in IPL auction2018. Pandya has been in fine form and every franchise will like to rope the all-rounder if he is available for auction and his current team Mumbai Indians will also look to retain him. With the retention policy likely to be instituted in the next edition of the league, franchises will look to retain their most valuable players. Pandya’s value has definitely been raised as he is achieving new heights in 2017. The Baroda all-rounder was signed by the defending champions for a mere 10 lakhs two seasons ago. A top BCCI official said “Hardik wants to be at the auction and the rule says that if he isn’t ready to play for Mumbai Indians, he can certainly be at the auction”.
