A total of 351 cricketers will go under the hammer in the 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL) players’ auction that is scheduled to take place on February 6 in Bengaluru.

There are 230 Indians and 121 overseas players for the franchises to choose from. The auction will also be the first for the two new teams -- Rising Pune Supergiants and the Gujarat Lions.

Out of the 350 cricketers on the auction list, 131 are capped players -- India 26, Australia 28, Bangladesh 5, England 7, New Zealand 9, South Africa 18, Sri Lanka 16, West Indies 20 and 219 are uncapped players -- India 204, Australia 9, New Zealand 1, South Africa 2, West Indies 3 Canada 1 and Ireland 1.

In terms of available spots, if every franchise were to have the maximum of 27 players in their squad, 116 players will be taken in the auction, of which up to 36 may be overseas players.

Here is a complete list of all the players available for auction with their base prices.

Because some teams chose to retain players and the others released many, the purse money varies from team to team. Here is an overview of total number of players retained, number of overseas players retained and their purse money.
