IPL release final list for player auction
The IPL have released the final list of 51 players who will be eligible to take part in the IPL player auction which takes place later this month.
The original list release last week contained 97 players who had made themselves available for the auction but the IPL have worked along side the franchises to finalise a list of players the teams are interested in.
A noticeable omission from the list are any players from England. The original list included eight English players but they have been removed from the auction process after the England and Wales Cricket Board were unable to agree terms with the IPL.
The players to miss out are Jonathan Trott, Usman Afzaal, James Foster, Eoin Morgan, Monty Panesar, Tim Bresnan, Anthony McGrath, and Adil Rashid.
The new list includes 11 players from Australia, 9 from South Africa, 8 from Sri Lanka and West Indies, 7 from Pakistan, 4 from New Zealand and one each from Bangladesh, Canada, Holland and Zimbabwe.
