Owing to the pandemic, this will be a ‘mini’ auction and there will be just 292 players (164 Indian, 125 overseas and 3 Associate) that will go under the hammer and this will give the squads the ability to find the winning core before the next big auction.As was the scene in the previous season, every franchise can have up to 25 players in their squad with no more than 8 overseas players. Also, the value of the roster cannot go beyond INR 85 crore.
