“If each franchise has a maximum of 25 players in their squad, 87 players are eligible for purchase at the auction (of which up to 30 players can be overseas players),” according to a BCCI statement.
Before the auction, the registered list is pruned, with teams submitting a list of preferences before the selected names are auctioned.
Women’s IPL Player Pool
There was discussion about how to proceed with the women’s IPL, and the BCCI has determined that as a first step, it will instruct the women selectors to develop a pool of players for the WIPL.
The pool will include both domestic and international players. The BCCI has given the green light to prepare the tender for the franchise sale and media rights, which are scheduled to be released soon. The franchise auction will take place after the media rights tender.
