"The list that has been sent out to the eight IPL franchises has 281 capped players, 838 uncapped players, including 778 Indians and three players from the associate nations", said a BCCI release.
The usual suspects like Chris Gayle, Ben Stokes, Ajinkya Rahane, Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Jos Buttler, Rashid Khan, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard etc., who are expected to fetch a huge sum at the auction, have registered for the mega auction.
As far as worldwide cricketers are concerned, leading the list are names like Chris Gayle and Ben Stokes.
The timing of the Big Bash League means that Australian players are especially well positioned to leave an impression ahead of the auction with names like Glenn Maxwell and Shane Watson being considered alongside more left-field selections like D'Arcy Short.
From the Caribbean, Dwayne Bravo, Carlos Braithwaite, Evin Lewis and Jason Holder would be the most sought after players in the IPL 2018 auction.
