IPL auction 2020 today,Keen Watch on Top Players

Auctions for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will kick-start, on December 19, with franchises expected to be restrained in their spending and eyes on key cricketers from West Indies and Australia.

However, like previous editions, some lesser-known youngsters could walk away with big deals.

As many as 332 cricketers (186 Indian, 146 overseas players) will go under the hammer at an auction at a hotel in Kolkata, West Bengal. It will not be a big auction this time around with only 73 slots to be filled by the eight franchises. Remember, only 29 of them can be foreign buys.

IPL 2020 assumes added significance as it also coincides with the T20 World Cup year.
