11 spots, 28.9 Crore in the purse & 6 hours of intense bidding! That is the IPL auction for Rajasthan Royals in a mini nutshell. The auction for IPL 2020 is the final one before the teams have to release a majority of their players for the mega auction before IPL 2021.
In November, Rajasthan Royals had retained 11 players and traded 3 into the squad for thirteenth edition of the Vivo IPL. With the third-highest purse among all the teams, we head into the auction to fill up to 11 slots in our squad.
The auction begins at 3:30 PM and ends around 9:30 PM on Thursday, 19th December. As many as 332 players will go under the hammer. The highest base price is 2 Crore, while the lowest is 20 Lakh. Here’s a quick look at how many players have listed themselves under each category.
