IPL 2020 Auction Live Streaming: When and where to watch Live Telecast
IPL 2020 Auction Live Streaming and TV Broadcast: A total of 332 cricketers will go under the hammer on Thursday in Kolkata as the 8 Indian Premier League franchises will be looking to fill up 73 spots for the upcoming season of the T20 league.
For some, it will be about finding the remaining pieces of their puzzle, while others with unsettled line-ups will look to add muscle and even overhaul the core of their sides at the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction which will take place in the state capital on Thursday.
As many as 332 cricketers (186 Indian, 146 overseas players) will go under the hammer at the auction at a plush hotel here with Australia’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and veteran South African fast bowler Dale Steyn among those opting for the highest base price of Rs 2 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.
Kings XI Punjab has the maximum money to spend (Rs 42.70 crore) and will look to rope in a captain after India’s premier Test off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was traded to Delhi Capitals. KXIP might go all out for England’s World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan or Australia’s limited-overs captain Aaron Finch.
Heavyweights Chennai Super Kings and defending champions Mumbai Indians have more or less a set core of players retained and will look to buy back-up options in case of injuries. Both teams do not have a lot of money left in their purse and would look to spend smartly.
India captain Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore will have their eyes on overseas players although they don’t have too much purse remaining (Rs 27.90 crore) to play with. RCB, who endured a dismal season last time, have a new coaching staff and scouting system in place, and therefore it remains to be seen how they go about on Thursday.
