IPL 2014 Auctions
Player auctions for Indian Premier League 2014 will take place on 12th and 13th February in Bangalore, and a list of 233 capped players from across 10 countries have been divided to all eight franchises, with 46 Indians being priced at top base price (of Rs 20 million or Rs 2 Crore each). As per the sources, the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Dinesh Karthik, Pragyan Ojha and Yusuf Pathan are some of the names who have been valued at top base price. Among the international players, hit in previous season of the IPL and the Ashes 2013-14 has landed Mitchell Johnson in the similar group as a Sehwag or Yuvraj. Although the likes of Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes are giving the competition a miss after their 5-0 thrashing against arch-opponents Australia, their teammate Kevin Pietersen could see several franchises contract their financial influence for him.
