Robin Uthappa tops the chart for the Indians as the only domestic capped player with ₹ 1.5 crore base price as the final player pool for the IPL 2020 Auction was formally announced. A total of 332 cricketers are set to go under the hammer in Kolkata on December 19, Thursday. As many as 997 players had initially registered for the auction. However , the list has been pruned after the eight franchises had submitted their shortlist of players.

With ₹2 crore as the highest reserve price, seven overseas players – Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Dale Steyn and Angelo Mathews – have opted to be slotted in the highest bracket, which incidentally has no domestic talent.
