IPL five to watch - JP Duminy
South Africa's JP Duminy

Country: South Africa

Reserve price: $300,000 (205,617)

The current golden boy of South African cricket - and he's up against some serious competition right now - can do no wrong.

The languid left-hander helped guide Graeme Smith's side to a record fourth-innings chase against Australia in Perth on his Test debut in December.

And he followed that up with a match-winning 166 in Melbourne, an innings which would have made IPL franchise owners sit up and watch in anticipation.

Smashing 78 and 69 in the following Twenty20 matches down under probably helped too, seamlessly combining elegant strokeplay with brutal hitting. And he can bowl more than useful off-spin too.

With such a low reserve price, expect a serious bidding frenzy for the seriously talented 24-year-old.
