ipl auction 2018

IPL 2018 auction results will be updated here. The IPL is widely regarded as the biggest and best T20 tournament in the world and due to this the excitement around the event is always huge. The VIVO IPL player auction is one of the most exciting events to happen off the field and this year it will take place on January 27 and 28 in Bangalore.

Some of the biggest names in world cricket will change hands for huge amounts of money during this auction as teams try and put together a winning combination of players. In 2018 the auction promises to be a great one, with two teams returning from suspension and a whole host of big names available for clubs to target. With so many other T20 leagues around the world using the same model for their auctions as the IPL do, it is clear that this is a success and we can’t wait to see what happens during the 2018 IPL auction.

Teams List of retained players ahead of Auction Money Left RTM Left
Chennai Super Kings MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja Rs. 47 crore 2
Delhi Daredevils Shreyas Iyer, Chris Morris, Rishabh Pant Rs. 47 crore 3
Kings XI Punjab Axar Patel Rs 67.5 crore 3
Kolkata Knight Riders Sunil Narine, Andre Russell Rs. 59 crore 3
Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya Rs. 67.5 crore 2
Rajasthan Royals Steven Smith Rs. 47 crore 3
Royal Challengers Bangalore Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan Rs. 47 crore 2
Sunrisers Hyderabad David Warner, Bhuvneshwar Kumar Rs. 59 crore 3


Going into this season there have been a lot of changes to the way things work with the auction. The first thing to talk about is the player salary cap, and the squad size. The salary cap has increased, while the squad size has been lowered, meaning it is more likely we will see even bigger money being handed out to the players taking part. The cap now stands at INR 80 crore, which equates to around $12.4 million for those living outside of India. The squads have been trimmed this season, from a maximum squad of 27, including nine overseas players, teams now have a maximum of 25 plus 8 overseas players.

The IPL auction will take place right at the start of 2018, on the weekend of January 27 and 28. The auctioning off of the players is one of the things everyone gets excited about, but there is a serious side to this for both the clubs who are bidding and the players. We are going to see many players available for auction in 2018, which is going to make for a hugely exciting auction, just how many players remains to be seen based on the format the IPL goes with. As soon as those plans are revealed by the BCCI we will bring them to you, explain how things will work and give you the lowdown on this page.

All in all, it sounds like it will be an interesting auction to watch out in 2018 but more information on the IPL Auction 2018 date and format will be awaited as we get closer to the tournament. IPL Auction 2018 players list will also be updated below.
