7 Players in Top Bracket of Rs. 2 Crore as IPL Auction List Trimmed from 971 to 332

The original list of 971 players for the IPL 2020 auction has been trimmed to 332, the BCCI confirmed on Friday.

While 997 players had initially registered, the final list has been pruned after the eight franchises submitted their shortlist of players.

It includes 24 new players who weren't in the original list, after the franchises requested for the addition. Among them are Kesrick Williams, who was a part of West Indies squad in the T20I series, Australians Dan Christian and Adam Zampa and Bangladesh's Mushfiqur Rahim.

With Rs. 2 crore as the highest reserve price, seven overseas players – Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Dale Steyn & Angelo Mathews have opted to be slotted in the highest bracket.

Robin Uthappa is the only Indian player in the Auction list with a base price of Rs. 1.5 crore. Other Indian stars, Piyush Chawla, Yusuf Pathan & Jaydev Unadkat have set their base price at Rs. 1 crore.

A total of 186 Indian players, 143 overseas players & 3 players from Associate Nations will be up for grabs in the IPL 2020 Player Auction in Kolkata.

Earlier, Australia pacer Mitchell Starc opted out of the auction. He had missed IPL 2019 too, to focus on the World Cup and Ashes.

The auction will be held on December 19 in Kolkata.
