Welcome to the 2017 IPL Auctions! The new set of rules are:

Conditions

  • Minimum of 11 players have to be bought.
  • Maximum of 17 players.
  • Minimum 3 batsmen & 3 bowlers.
  • All wicker-keepers are considered as batsmen.
  • Points will be taken from your best eleven with the condition being of course the points from your respective highest 3 batsmen & 3 bowlers.
  • Three players allowed from one franchise.
  • Four players allowed from the franchise you have bought.
  • Once a player has received no bids in an auction he goes directly to the second round of auctions.
  • Point system from the official IPLT20 game.
  • Each franchise team win nets you 20 points.

Trades

  • One trade per player before the IPL.
  • No restrictions at all. Transfer bowler to batsmen or bowler to all rounder, etc.
  • No approvals needed.
  • Once you have set your trade with another player just mention it before the IPL starts on April 5th in the Whats App chat.
  • Only condition being the 3 players per franchise rule or 4 players if you are the owner of that respective franchise.

Transfers

  • 3 transfers per player to be used anytime before all teams play 12 games.
  • Transfers will be between the players you have bought and the players that remained unsold.
  • No additional transfers will be given if your player in injured, recalled for international duty, etc.
  • Transfers will be given on the basis of who listed a player’s name in chat first.
  • Only condition being the 3 players per franchise rule or 4 players if you are the owner of that respective franchise.
  • New players entering the IPL will be entered into the unsold players list every Friday only at Noon. If a player is added on Monday, he will only enter the game on Noon the coming Friday.
  • Transfers will cost units, i.e. units left in auctions plus player sold will refund you a value to buy unsold players. Unsold players will have values going up and down depending on performances.

Loans

  • 5 loans per player to be used before all teams play the knock-outs, i.e. all 14 games.
  • Loans only count for 1 game.
  • A player can be loaned out for batsmen-batsmen / bowler-bowler / all rounder – all rounder. The logic is that since 3 batsmen and 3 bowlers are minimum this statistic should not be skewed by interchanging disciplines.
  • Players must mention their loans in the Whats App chat.
  • Player being loaned out will have his game counted. Examples:
  1. Raina out Pandya In. Raina has played three games and Pandya four games. Raina gets Pandya’s game 5 points for his game 3. Raina returns to the player for his game 4.
  2. Raina out Pandya In. Raina has played three games and Pandya two games. Then Pandya’s points from game 3 will count for Raina’s game 4 points. Raina returns to the player for his game 4.
  3. Raina out Pandya in. Both have played three games. Pandya’s points from game 3 will be Raina’s points for game 3. Raina returns to the player for his game 4.

Cost

  • Auction is set at 3,000 units.
  • Elimination Chamber is set at 500 units.
  • Ranches contribution is 200 units.
  • Minimum bid for franchises is 100 units. Closed bidding.
  • In case of tie, a randomizer will be used.
