The two new teams of IPL, Ahmedabad and Lucknow, have been fixed as the last date for selecting three players each through draft before the auction. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has given time till January 22 to both the teams. He has been informed about this through a mail on Wednesday (January 12) morning.

When will IPL auction happen?

Teams were initially expected to be given two weeks, but it is believed that the time has now been reduced due to the longer time taken on CVC Capital. 10 days will be enough for them. The big IPL auction is to be held in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13. This is what the BCCI had earlier planned. The final decision regarding the dates and venue of the auction was taken in the meeting of the Governing Council.

What are the rules for selecting players?
According to the rules, new teams can spend Rs 33 crore for three players. If they choose capped players, a slab of Rs 15 crore, Rs 11 crore and Rs 7 crore has been made for three players. If one of these uncapped players is signed, then he will have to spend Rs 4 crore. Earlier, eight teams had got the right to retain four players each.
