The Indian cricket board (BCCI) on Tuesday finalised the list of players for the two-day IPL 2022 player auction, to be held on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru.

In December, the eight pre-existing franchises have announced their retention list. As expected, the legends of the game -- MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, etc -- were retained, but there were some big surprises. Check HERE the list of retained players.

It was followed by the two new franchises announcing their initial buys before the auction.

The Auction

As usual, the auction will start with the marquee players, followed by capped players by traits -- batters, all-rounders, wicket-keepers, pacers and spinners; then the uncapped players.

The accelerated auction will start after player no 161 in the revised register, reports Cricbuzz quoting a BCCI mailer.


"For your planning purposes please note, subject to timings it is envisaged that the accelerated process will start after player no.161. The first accelerated process will cover all the players from 162 - 590. Franchises will be asked to nominate a set number of players from this group by 10 pm on the evening of 12th February," the portal shared a BCCI e-mail.

"Once these players (162-590) have been presented, franchises will be requested to submit the names of players (unpresented / unsold) from all those on the full list of 590 for further accelerated presentation. This will be covered in more detail at the auction briefing on 11th February 2022."

There will be a mock auction on February 11.

The IPL 2022 player auction will be telecast live on Star Sports Network. Live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar. On both days, the auction will start at 12 PM IST. There will also be a pre-auction show from 11 AM.

Last year, Hugh Edmeades conducted the auction.
