Adani Sportsline Pvt Ltd (Ahmedabad), Indiawin Sports Pvt Ltd (Mumbai), Royal Challengers Sports Pvt. Ltd (Bangalore), JSW GMR Cricket Pvt Ltd (Delhi), and Capri Global Holdings Pvt Ltd (Lucknow) were successful in winning the franchises ahead of the first season after competing in the BCCI’s bid process for the WPL teams.

And the aforementioned franchises will take part in an auction in the nation’s capital on February 10 or 11.

WPL Players Auction

Although a player draft was discussed, BCCI has chosen to go with a men’s IPL-style auction instead. The BCCI has established Rs 50, 40, and 20 lakh as the players’ reserved base price.

It is Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 20 lakh for uncapped players. Each team will have a salary budget of Rs 12 crore, and the auction pool is expected to include 150 players.

Teams will be entitled to select 15–18 players, with a squad size of 18 being the maximum. Additionally, BCCI has authorised 5 foreign players to join the playing XI. However, one of the five must come from an associate nation.

Base Price and Auction Rules for the WPL Auction

  • Three “reverse pricing” categories (INR 50 lakh, INR 40 lakh, and INR 30 lakh) among the capped players will serve as the starting point for bidding.
  • The player’s agreed-upon rate for the competition will be shown in the hammer price at the end of the bidding procedure.
  • The base cost for uncapped players is available in two sizes: INR 20 lakh and INR 10 lakh.
  • Five yet-to-be-named franchises will then update the “Auction Register” in accordance with the IPL’s current protocol to create an “Auction List,” which will then be put up for bids.
  • Those who are in the “Registered Available Player Pool” but are not selected at the auction will have another chance to be selected as replacement players (s).

WPL Media Rights were purchased by Viacom18 for Rs 951 Cr. In terms of teams, bids for WPL teams have been accepted by Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Delhi Capitals. In addition to the three IPL franchises, other clubs have been owned by Adani Sportsline and Capri Global.
