Why IPL Auction?
The Indian Premier League is held every year. Each team has a certain number of players. Based on performance, each team wants to keep the best players in their team. But if all teams want to have certain players in their team, how is that possible? For this, the process of taking the players in the team is followed through an auction ceremony. Since there are many competitors and the number of posts is less, everyone is constantly trying to increase their performance. So the IPL is auctioned every year and the teams get a chance to change players.
IPL Auction Rules & System
As we know, everything is governed by certain rules and regulations. There are also some rules for IPL auctions. Each team has a specific purse for the auction in which the auction must be completed. This year, each team has a maximum allocation of Rs 85 crore to complete their team. Within this Rs 85 crore, each team has to complete their squad. A team must use at least 75% of the total allocated funds. If the team is completed with less than 75% (65% or 70%) then the rest (10% or 5%) will go directly to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Player Cap of IPL
The player cap is the specific policy of the players in a team as to how many players there will be in total, how many Indian players and how many foreign players. However, the BCCI has set the policy regarding player caps. According to that policy, each team in the IPL can have a maximum of 25 players. Of these, at least 17 local (Indian) players must be kept. However, if desired, a maximum of 25 local players can be kept. On the other hand, the maximum number of foreign players is 8. However, there is no minimum restriction for foreign players.
IPL Right-to-Match Card
The option of the Right-to-Match (RTM) card will not be available to franchises. If a franchise leaves one of their players, they can’t take them if they want to. If they have to take it, they have to bid again.
