With few overseas slots left, It will be challenging for Lamichhane to be bought by teams like SRH, CSK, KKR, RCB. MI already have strong leggies so it is unlikely for them to go for Lamichhane.
KXIP lacking leg spinners might want to grab him for his base price of 40 lacs, It would be interesting to see which team picks him.

The IPL auction is set to start from 3 PM IST today. For live updates regarding the auction, stay tuned to Cricket Corner.
