The IPL 7 tournament is less than a month away, but before that there is the matter of the 2014 Auction to see who will be playing for the eight franchises.

Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad will all be looking to land 514 of the world’s best players.

Some key names to watch out for in the auction are recently sacked England batsman Kevin Pietersen, 2013/14 Ashes Man of the Series Mitchell Johnson and Indian veteran Yusuf Pathan.
