IPL five to watch - Andrew Flintoff
England's Andrew Flintoff

Country: England

Reserve price: $950,000 (650,810)

The broad Lancastrian's shoulders will be in demand by most of the franchises - big-hitting bowling all-rounders are as rare as hotpot in India.

The 31-year-old is one of the finest "death" bowlers around, with toe-crunching yorkers a particular speciality.

His six-hitting ability is legendary - he has 19 maximums in 24 Twenty20 matches, where he averages 21.40 with the bat.

Mumbai, captained by Sachin Tendulkar, and Chennai, skippered by Mahendra Dhoni, have been mooted as possible destinations for Flintoff.

Hard hats at the ready if Flintoff joins the Indian captain in southern India.
