How Does the IPL Auction Work?
The players in the auction are divided into three categories – Indian capped, Indian uncapped, and overseas players. These players are then grouped again. The sets are based on the specialty – batters, all-rounders, wicketkeeper-batters, fast bowlers and spinners. For a player to be sold, he has to enter the auction at a base price followed by teams making bids for him until it stops. Unsold players can also re-enter the auction through accelerated rounds if franchises submit their names.
