New Delhi: The ICC World T20 Championship has just concluded and the stage is set for another cricketing extravaganza – Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 – which commences on April 9. 

The ninth edition of the Indian Premier League will witness eight teams in action. Two new teams, viz., Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions, will replace Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals following their suspension last year for the next two seasons. 

Players raking in big money in auctions has been one of the biggest talking points of the tournament since its inception. This year, Australian all-rounder Shane Watson was sold to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the highest bid of Rs 9.5 crore. The second best bid was a complete surprise for everyone. Indian all-rounder Pawan Negi went to Delhi Daredevils for Rs 8.5 crore. 

Here is a complete list of the teams and their squads for the IPL 2016.
