- BCCI to organize mega auction before IPL 2022
- The number of players retained by the franchise is likely to decrease
- The fate of big cricketers will be decided in the mega auction
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is busy preparing for the Mega Auction for IPL 2022. The auction will be held later this year. Mega auction is a big opportunity for those franchises who want to make a lot of changes in their squad. Two new teams are likely to be added in the upcoming season, which will make the auction even more interesting. Along with this, the discussion of changes in the important rules of retaining is also in full swing. Now the number of players retained can be reduced. It is being said that if this happens, then the fate of big cricketers will be decided in the mega auction.
Teams will be able to retain four players
As per a Times of India report, franchises will be allowed to retain a maximum of four players before the mega auction. The team management can either retain three Indian players and one foreign player or two Indian players and two foreign players. Before going to the auction, the franchise will have to deduct the salary of these four players.
Let us tell you that with the arrival of two new teams, BCCI will increase the purse from 85 crores to 90 crores, which means that an additional 50 crores will be added to the budget of all the ten franchises. If a team retains three players, their salary structure will be Rs 15 crore, Rs 11 crore and Rs 7 crore. If two players are retained then it will be Rs 12.5 crore and Rs 8.5 crore. On the other hand, if a player is retained, the salary structure will be Rs 12.5 crore.
Mega auction may happen in December
Significantly, the mega auction was to be held before IPL 2021. But due to the loss to the franchise due to the Corona epidemic and there was not much gap between IPL 2020 and 2021, the mag auction was postponed for a year. Now the Mag Auction is expected to take place in December this year while two new franchises can be introduced by October.
