IPL Auction 2020
IPL 2020 auction results will be updated here. The 2020 IPL will be played from March and will go on till at the most mid-May. What this early season of the Indian Premier League means is that the VIVO IPL player auction which is usually held in the year in which the IPL is played will be hosted on December 19, 2019, in Kolkata. The event like previous years will begin from 2:30 PM IST and will be broadcast on Star Gold UK.
This year’s IPL auction will be a mini-auction, given that teams have been allowed to retain most of their players but it doesn’t mean it wouldn’t throw up some interesting combinations and selections. The complete list of IPL 2020 players released and players retained by the eight teams are placed here.

What happened in the previous auction
Teams like the defending champions Chennai Super Kings have retained all but three of their players. And now they are left with just two slots to fill during the auction and they can be expected to go through the auction almost unnoticed.
And while the Mumbai Indians have a few more slots to fill up, even they have retained a good core of their squad from the previous years, allowing them to build on the squad they had.
The team to watch out the most during this auction is Kings XI Punjab. Punjab’s performances in the recent seasons of the Indian Premier League haven’t been the best to write home about but given the change in their coach, they will look to change things around on the field too.
Mike Hesson, their new coach, has been one of the best in the world and will look to guide Punjab not just on the field but during the auction too.
Some of the top players who could feature in the IPL auction this year include Pat Cummins, JP Duminy, Mustafizur Rahman, Jaydev Unadkat, Alex Hales, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh, Axar Patel, Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Mitchell Starc, Jason Roy, Mohammad Shami and Glenn Maxwell.
Each of these players along with a host of other players who want to feature in the competition will set their own base price depending on whether or not they are capped players. The entire list of players available during the IPL auction will be updated here before the start of the auction.
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. 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 2019 IPL auction. The complete VIVO IPL 2019 player auction results will be placed below.
