1003 cricketers registered for IPL 2019 auction

With the 2019 Cricket World Cup looming, Australia's limited overs captain Aaron Finch has chosen to sit out next year's IPL, alongside all-rounder Glen Maxwell.

Among the Indians, Yuvraj Singh - after a dismal IPL 2018 - will enter the auction with a base price of Rs 1 crore. Of the 800 uncapped, 746 are Indians.

Among other countries, 28 contestants from Sri Lanka, 17 from New Zealand and 10 from Bangladesh will go through the auction. However, the highest players registered are from South Africa (59).

One player each from Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands and US have also registered for the auctions. In total, 1003 players have registered for the IPL auctions.

Afghanistan, after gaining the Test status, received a huge gain having 27 cricketers registered for the auction. And Mohammad Shami, Axar Patel and Wriddhiman Saha - who has been out of the Indian team due to a streak of injuries - also enter the auction with a Rs 1 crore base price. Foreign players including Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews, Lasith Malinga, Brendon McCullum, D'Arcy Short, Chris Woakes, Colin Ingram and Sam Curran entered Rs 2 crore.

Fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat, who was released by Rajasthan Royals, has listed himself for Rs 1.5 crore, the maximum base price for an Indian.

Another notable development will be the absence of auctioneer Richard Madley, who became a regular feature during the IPL auctions over the years.

Franchises will now have time until 5:00 PM IST, Monday 10th December to submit their shortlist of players that will make up the final VIVO IPL 2019 Player Auction list.
