Today’s event in Dubai may not be the spectacular spectacle that the IPL super auction is, but it is nothing less. The star-studded lineup, which includes Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Rachin Ravindra, and others, promises a captivating 8-plus hours of entertainment. Also, hey, hello! The returning Rishabh Pant will be on that Delhi Capitals table, employing all of his skills and planning to secure some of the top players available.


Now for some trivia. The ten franchises have a total budget of 262.95 crore to spend, with the Gujarat Titans having the highest capacity – a hefty sum of 38.15 crore – followed by the Sunrisers Hyderabad having the second-largest purse of 34 crore. The other two teams with over 30 crore to spend are Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings. The Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Punjab Kings have enough of money to fine-tune their squads as well, with 28.95 crore, 23.25 crore, and 29.1 crore, respectively. The Mumbai Indians (17.75 crore), Lucknow Super Giants (13.15 crore), and Rajasthan Royals (14.5 crore) have the smallest war chests among their rivals.

There are 77 places available for franchises to fill, including 213 Indians and 116 foreigners. The format is straightforward. Players are divided into distinct sets based on their abilities and will be available for selection once their names are selected from the bag. Mallika Sagar, who recently handled the WPL auction, will succeed Hugh Edmeades as the first female auctioneer in the IPL’s 16-year history. There are several pricing ranges to choose from. The top price category is 2 crore, for which 23 players have registered, including Shardul Thakur, Harshal Patel, and Umesh Yadav. Then there’s the 1 crore bracket, the 75 lakh bracket, the 50 lakh bracket, the 20 lakh bracket, and so on.

While the participation of several players has increased the stocks for the IPL 2024 auction, there are some conspicuous absentees as well, the most prolific of which being England’s Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, as well as Shakib Al Hasan and Joe Root. Nonetheless, the enormity of this spectacular event is such that none of it can detract from what comes ahead. The auction is just what fans wanted since the 2024 edition of the IPL promises to be greater. Hardik Pandya will captain Mumbai Indians for the first time in an IPL season that also happens to be MS Dhoni’s swansong, in a move that has already generated quite a stir.

The return of two young India captains to the fore in Shreyas Iyer and Pant, as well as Gautam Gambhir’s return to KKR as their mentor, has already turned heads, and we haven’t yet begun the new year. Although no official date has been confirmed, the IPL 2024 is expected to begin on March 22.

So hi! Relax and prepare for a bumpy yet enthralling trip. Which player will make the most money? Will Sam Curran’s 18.5 crore purchase by PBKS last year be broken? If you say yes, who will it be? All of these questions will be addressed within the next 12 hours.
