IPL 2019 Auction: Morgan Makes a Late Entry

England's limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan has been included in the player list for Tuesday's Indian Premier League 2019 auction, alongside four other late entrants: South Africa's Rassie van der Dussen, Australia's Riley Meredith, and Indians Mayank Dagar and Pranav Gupta.

Morgan will enter the auction with the base price of INR 2 crore and will share the seat with the likes of Brendon McCullum, Lasith Malinga, Corey Anderson, Chris Woakes, Colin Ingram, Shaun Marsh, Angelo Mathews, Sam Curran and D'Arcy Shorts.

With the latest inclusions, as many as 346 players - 228 Indians and 123 overseas players - have been shortlisted for the auction which will be conducted on December 18.

Morgan has featured for four franchises in the cash-rich league, with Kings XI Punjab in the 2017th edition being his last. He went unsold in the last auction.

Meanwhile, Van der Dussen (INR 50 Lakh) ended as the highest run-getter in the recently-concluded Mzansi Super League, scoring 469 runs in 11 innings at an average of 58.62 and a strike rate of 138.75 for the inaugural champions Jozi Stars.

Meredith (INR 40 Lakh), the 22-year-old paceman, has played a couple of games for Hobart Hurricane. Dagar, who was with Punjab last year, and Jammu and Kashmir's batsman Gupta have kept their base price INR 20 Lakh.
