Plan, strategize and build a side - It's that time of the year again.

With all the players (barring the ones retained) to go under the hammer, the auction promises to be an exciting one with a lot of strategy expected to be on display. New auction brings along new hope and new outlook for a lot of teams while some look to rebuild around a few core members. Either way, it will be a fresh start for all eight teams to try and find the best possible combination going forward. (514 players to go under the hammer)
