IPL auction may happen by 26 Feb

MUMBAI: The Indian Premier League (IPL) auction in all likelihood will be delayed to 19 or 26 February. It was earlier expected to take place on 4 February.

The IPL auction is probably set to return to Mumbai this season after Bengaluru hosted the event in the last three seasons, and five times altogether -- since its inception in 2008. It was in 2010 when the first auction was held in Mumbai.

Friday was the last day for the interested players to submit their names. Ideally, the names will be sent to the eight teams tentatively on Monday. A final list of players in the auction will then be prepared. A senior IPL official said that an overhaul of the system was anticipated next season.

The franchises of the tenth season have declared 63 players. Rising Pune Supergiants have declared the names of 11 players. Last season champions -- Sunrisers Hyderabad -- have released the names of six players.

Pune franchise skipper MS Dhoni has selected overseas players such as Thisara Perra, Kevin Petersen, Albie Morkel and George Bailey.

Well known names that have been released by other franchises include Amit Mishra, Dale Steyn, Mitchell Johnson, Colin Munro, Kyle Abbott, More Morkel, Martin Guptill, Corey Anderson, Eoin Morgan, Trent Boult, Chris Jordan and Varun Aaron.
