The final list contains 122 international players including 6 names from associate countries out of which 5 are from Afghanistan

The original number of 799 players was brought down to 351 after the teams submitted their preferences.

Like all others, nine Bengal players will also have their fingers crossed when a total pool of 351 players will go under the hammers in the IPL player's auction in Bengaluru on Monday.

The right-to-match option, which will allow the franchises to get back their player if they match the highest bid he receives in the auctions next year, may prompt the teams to go all out for the top players this time around, so that they enhance their chances of keeping them in the future. The list includes 6 players from associate nations that comprises of 5 afganistan players and one from UAE.

The coveted list also has a few big national players as well, 122 to be precise.

Oil Prices Advance Despite Modestly Higher Greenback
USA inventories tend to rise until late April when refinery demand accelerates ahead of the summer peak driving and demand season. Besides this, OPEC's high compliance levels and possibility of an Iran- U.S standoff is also supporting oil prices.


The number of uncapped players in the list was originally 639 which has come down to just 229 now.

Sensing that they have been released primarily for the sake of price correction, both players seem to have opted for a very low base price.

ESPNcricinfo understands that the IPL had informed the franchises about this in an email this week along with the final updated player roster for the auction on February 20. The players from associate nations are Asghar Stanikzai (Afghanistan captain), Mohammad Shahzad, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Dawlat Zadran.Mohammad Shahzad and Rashid Khan have gone on the highest base price INR 50 lakh in the list. Except for Ngidi, who is recovering from a hip injury, the other six players are part of the limited-overs squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand. Stokes brings a lot of variety to the team with his all-round skills. English trio of Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes and all-rounder Chris Woakes have also managed to attract the maximum base price permitted. Ishant Sharma who has stalked a base price of Rs 2 cr will also test his fate. Nathu Singh who didn't played a single game for Mumbai Indians despite bought for Rs 3.2 crore, has a base price of Rs 30 lakh.
