IPL Auction 2018 Players List

The next season of Indian Premier League is approaching once again and that is enough to provide adrenaline rush to each and every one of us. It is difficult to actually wait for the matches to start and to see who would be the ultimate winner this time. You must be aware of the fact that every year, the team chooses a different player and this process of choosing a team is done via auction.

The auction is an important phase for many players as it provides an opportunity to many young players who emerge victoriously in these matches and gets a platform to showcase their talent. At the same time, the IPL Auction is also important for senior cricket player as it can help them in earning a huge fee.

IPL Auction Date and Time

For this season, the IPL Auction was held on 27th January 2018 and 28th January 2018. This time, the dates were bought a little backward and in addition to this, the Auctions were held in Bengaluru. You might be surprised to know that auctions were supposed to be held in Goa but because of the tourist rush, the IPL Auction Venue had to be changed. The timings for the auction were 9:00 Am to 6:00 PM on both the days.

IPL Auction Rules

Each and every auction is governed by the rules and some rules were also applicable for IPL Auction. If you are not aware of the rules applicable to the auction then here is a short summary of these rules.

  • Each team was allowed to spend only 80 crores and they were not allowed to spend anything more than that. Previously, this budget was 66 crore.
  • Each and every team is allowed to retain 5 players from the last IPL Match and there are certain conditions which are applicable n retention policy as well.
  • Each team should have a minimum of 18 players and a maximum of 25 players. There is also a cap on a number of foreign players a team can have and this number stands at 8.

IPL Auction Player

Now coming to the player list for the IPL Auction, there are almost 100 players who have been auctioned in this IPL Season and the players were from a different nationality. There were players from South Africa, Australia, England and many other countries. One country which always goes missing in IPL is Pakistan. So the base price for the players were Rs 20 Lakh and there were three players who were sold at this base price. The list of these three players includes Ishank Jaggi, Harshal Patel, and Ricky Bhui.

Coming to the player who bagged the maximum money. Do you know who could he be? Any guesses? Well, he is Virat Kohli and he was auctioned for a sum of Rs 17 crore. This year, he is playing for RCB. In addition to this, the second highest sum was bagged by MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma who bagged 15 crores each. They would be playing for CSK and MI respectively.

Overall, there are 12 players who bagged over 10 crores during this IPL Auction and it would certainly be interesting to see these players fighting in the field to be the number 1.
