Stokes, Gayle, Root among top foreign stars in IPL auction

281 capped players 838 uncapped players including 778 Indians and three players from the Associate nations have registered themselves for auction

Among the Indians, a fierce bidding war is expected to break out when Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, off-spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, mystery spinner Kuldeep Yadav and openers Lokesh Rahul and Murali Vijay go under the hammer.

Joe Root and Ben Stokes are among 282 overseas players who will be part of this year's Indian Premier League auction.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has circulated the first short-list of players among the eight IPL franchises.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is still out of the national side as he awaits disciplinary or legal charges for the Bristol incident in September, has listed his base price at INR 2 crore. The allrounder became the most expensive overseas player bought at an IPL auction when Rising Pune Supergiants paid 3.5 million dollars.

In 2018 IPL auctions, there will be a total of 281 capped players, 838 uncapped players including 778 Indian players.

From Australia, hoping to show his full range of strokes in this year's IPL will be Glenn Maxwell, along with Pat Cummins and Mitchell Johnson, who bowled Mumbai Indians to their third title last season with his final over heroics.

The list of players on auction also includes players from Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

South African players listed for the auction include Hashim Amla, Faf du Plesis, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel.

The Black Caps Colin Munro has done his cause no harm by racking up T20I centuries against the West Indies while his skipper Kane Williamson is also likely to be a sought after acquisition. Jofra Archer still looks set to wait out naturalization with his stated ambition to play for England but right now he could be bound for an IPL spell after his brilliant displays in the Big Bash League.

Apart from these countries, players from Afghanistan (13), Bangladesh (8), Zimbabwe (7) and Ireland (2) have registered for the auction.
