IPL Auction 2020 Live Updates: 332 Cricketers To Go Under Hammer

918

As many as 332 cricketers (186 Indian, 146 overseas players) will go under the hammer at the auction with Australia’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and veteran South African fast bowler Dale Steyn among those opting for the highest base price of Rs2 crore. It won’t be a big auction this time with only 73 slots there to be filled by the eight franchises and 29 of them can be foreign buys.

IPL 2020 Auction

In India, if cricket is a religion, then the IPL is its most popular cult, the biggest cricket tournament in the world that can change lives forever. Like all cults, it can get messy. Sex, drugs, match-fixing – the IPL has seen it all.

Yet it remains, a fast-track to the Indian team. And that makes the auction the entry gate to that heaven which begins today in Kolkata. Today’s the day that can make or break a player’s career. It can add an amount to his bank balance that he never thought fathomable. It can also destroy reputations, a final hammer blow to a fading star’s career. The final nail in the coffin.
