The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced a final shortlist of 333 players set to go under the hammer at the IPL auction ahead of the 2024 edition of the cash-rich league. Out of 333 players, 214 are Indians and 119 are overseas, of which two are from Associate nations with 77 spots being up for grabs in what is going to be probably the biggest mini-auction in recent years. Out of 333, 116 are capped players while uncapped are 215 with the remaining two from the Associate nations.

23 players have registered themselves in the top base price bracket of INR 2 crore and 13 are in the INR 1.5 crore bracket. The likes of Travis Head, Manish Pandey, Harry Brook and Steve Smith are in the very first set of batters followed by the likes of Gerald Coetzee, Shardul Thakur, Rachin Ravindra, Harshal Patel and Pat Cummins in the all-rounders category. Australian pacer Mitchell Starc will be in the fourth set for the fast bowlers alongside the likes of Josh Hazlewood, Lockie Ferguson, Shivam Mavi and Sri Lanka's World Cup star Dilshan Madushanka.

The third set of wicketkeepers has the likes of Josh Inglis, Phil Salt and KS Bharat being the only Indian amongst five names. Gujarat Titans have the biggest purse remaining with INR 38.15 crore left in the tank while Kolkata Knight Riders have the most number of slots to fill, 12. Mujeeb ur Rahman and Adil Rashid are the two top spinners with INR 2 crore base price in the fifth set. The full list of players can be accessed .

Lucknow Super Giants have the least amount of purse i.e., INR 13.15 crore with joint-least slots to fill (6), similar to Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The World Cup performances will be key for the overseas players to be picked up while the Indians, especially the uncapped players will hope that their outings in the domestic competitions Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare did the trick.
