IPL auction on Feb 16 at B’luru


Mumbai: The IPL player auction will be held on February 16 in Bangalore. There is no clarity on the number of players in the auction pool because the deadline for franchises to prune the original list has been deferred to February 4.

Yuvraj Singh, Kevin Pietersen and Dinesh Karthik along with South Africa Test captain Hashim Amla have attracted the highest base price of Rs 20,000,000. An additional purse of INR 30,000,000 will be available to each franchise over and above the balance accrued from the INR 600,000,000 last year along with the amount generated from the release of players.
