He shares this figure with nine other foreign players. Among the 19 players who have listed themselves at INR. 1 Crore, there are only four Indians - Yuvraj Singh, Wriddhiman Saha, Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel.

Rules of the auction

The 351 players in the auction pool will be sorted into groups based on their role, (batsman, bowler, all-rounder) and split into different pots.

- Hugh Edmeades, who will be the auctioneer for the day, will then call out the player’s name following which the teams will start the bidding war by raising their paddles. The base price will be called out first and it will escalate if there are more than one team fighting it out to avail the player. The team with the highest bid at the end will snap up the player.

- Only when all teams save 1 back out and the auctioneer calls out ‘sold’ will the bidding conclude.

- If none of the teams raise the paddle and if the auctioneer believes that there will be a stalemate in the affairs, the player remains unsold.

- These unsold players will go back into the pot and if the franchises want them back they can be brought back in the final phase of the auctions.
