With the end of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the auction of the IPL 2021 is around the corner, all the franchises are trying to set the squad as they have been given the time till January 20 to finish the process. On the other hand, Indian players, who are without a contract but want to be a part of the IPL auction will be required to fill the agreement of player auction and submit it online by February 4 within 5 pm as well.
Meanwhile, IPL COO and interim BCCI CEO Hemang Amin have already sent an email to state associations where they have explained the process how an Indian player – be it capped or uncapped – register to participate in the 14th edition of the league. However, the process isn’t applicable for those who have a contract or who may get an extension ahead of the auction.
“When the above registration is initiated by the state association, it will generate an email to the player with their login details so they can complete the registration process. Once registered, in order to express their interest in playing in the IPL 2021, the player should login to the online registration system,” read the mail.
“They will be required to complete all the fields and download and complete the IPL 2021 Player Auction Agreement. Once completed, the agreement must be uploaded back to the online registration system and the original sent or delivered to their respective state association. It further added.
On the other hand, Amin also explained that the BCCI wouldn’t deal with any player agent or manager and state bodies will handle all these matters. he also shared that if in case any player fails to abide by this will then his name will be withdrawn with immediate effect from the IPL 2021 Auction Register and/or IPL 2021 Auction List as well. He again added that uncapped players who have retired from domestic cricket can submit his auction agreement if BCCI gives written approval.
“An Indian U19 player may only register for the IPL 2021 Player Auction if the player is registered as a player with a State Association and has played in at least one match in either First Class cricket or List A cricket. For the 2021 Season, a U19 player is one who was born on or after 1 April 2002,” the mail again read.
However, the IPL auction is likely to take place in the second week of February and the tournament will be played in March-April as well.
