Chris Gayle created waves with his 175 against Pune last year. This West Indian giant is known to clear the biggest grounds and will be on the bowler's radar to get rid off quickly. Once he settles, he can wreak havoc.
Aaron Finch may be without a team for now, but there is no doubt that if he is picked at the auction, this Aussie can send the ball into orbit whenever his bat makes perfect connection.
David Miller has the reputation of being a hard hitter. His knocks have on many occasions changed the course of matches and it will be interesting to see if he can replicate the form that saw him smash a 38-ball ton against Bangalore in 2013.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai skipper has immortalised the use of his favourite 'Helicopter Shot'. Trusdt him to go big in the end overs which often mean the difference between defeat and victory.
Shane Watson made a name for himself in the first edition back in 2008. Sicne then he has only gone on to build his success and any oppostion captain knows that his big hitting at the top of the order can send the run-rate sky-rocketing.
