“I didn’t give name for auction. I think that there’s a lot that we need to do for this team, which deserves all of my energy. I really hope I get the opportunity to do it. I’ll keep sacrificing as much as I can because I care so much about Test cricket in our country and trying to get us to where we can,” Joe Root said after the final Ashes Test in Hobart.

BCCI earlier had set a January 17 deadline for all state cricket associations and cricket boards to send the list of names for the auction.

“We approached our partner boards a month back to send the list of players. We expect them to send the list of players by January 17.
