Vivo IPL 2019 Auction: Yuvraj Singh Enters With Rs. 1 Crore Base Price, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch Opt Out

The Vivo Indian Premier League 2019 (IPL) auction will happen on December 18 in Jaipur and the momentum has already picked up with some important names reportedly opting out. As reported by ESPN-Cricinfo, flamboyant Australian batsmen “Glenn Maxwell” and “Aaron Finch” have opted out of the auction, essentially owing to Australia's hectic timetable in the run-up to the 2019 World Cup.

Among the Indians, “Yuvraj Singh” - after an unhappy IPL 2018 - will enter the auction with a base price of Rs. 1 crore. And Mohammad Shami, Axar Patel and Wriddhiman Saha - who has been out of the Indian squad due to a streak of injuries - also entering the auction with Rs 1 crore base price.
Another Indian cricketer who deserves remarkable mention is “Jaydev Unadkat”, who will enter the auction with a base price of Rs 1.5 crore. “Jaydev-Unadkat” was surprisingly the most costly Indian in last year's IPL, having been bought for Rs 11.5 crore by the Rajasthan Royals.
Reportedly, there is a Rs. 2 crore club as well. England all-rounder Sam-Curran has set his base price at Rs 2 crore.
Others in the Rs 2-crore bracket are Corey Anderson, Colin Ingram, Lasith Malinga, Shaun Marsh, Angelo Mathews, Brendon McCullum, D'Arcy Short and Chris Woakes.

Previously on Wednesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said that it received over a 1,000 registrations for the coming auction. After the players registration deadline ended, Vivo “IPL” on their official Twitter handle said that a total of 1,003 players, with 232 overseas ones have signed up to be a part of the IPL 2019 Players Auction. A total of 70 slots will be up for grabs in eight different franchises with a total purse of INR 145.25 crore.
