The second Indian Premier League players' auction will be held in Goa on February 6, its Chairman and Commissioner Lalit Modi announced on Friday.
"I know that all the franchises are putting in a lot of work to ensure that their playing squads are even better than last season. The second players' auction at Goa on February 6, will be an opportunity to sign some experienced internationals to complete their playing squads," Modi said.
"Following the Goa auction, I believe that we will have most of the world's top cricketers registered to play in the DLF IPL. But, I am particularly pleased to see franchises investing in the Gen-Next of World Cricket with the addition of many top young players," he said.
During next month's auction franchises will have the opportunity to purchase current international players to fill the remaining slots for overseas players in their squad.
