With the 2018 IPL auction just a couple of weeks away, the deadline for the IPL player registration closed last night (Friday, January 12, 2018) with as many as 1122 players signing up to be a part of the mega player auction which is scheduled to take place in Bengaluru on January 27 and 28.

Indian stars Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, off spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, mystery spinner Kuldeep Yadav and openers K.L. Rahul and Murali Vijay will be on top of every team's wishlist.

As far as global cricketers are concerned, leading the list are names like Chris Gayle and Ben Stokes.

There are a total of 281 capped players, 838 uncapped players, which also includes 778 Indian players, apart from three players from Associate nations.

Some 1,122 players will be on the auction block for the eight teams to bid for. While Gayle wasn't retained by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for this season, Stokes, who played his maiden season of the IPL a year ago, had been the most expensive acquisition of IPL 2017.

Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are two of 58 Australian players in the auction - the country with the most entries.

The list of players on auction also includes players from Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

Lasith Malinga, whose form has taken a considerable dip in the previous year or so, too will be part of the auction apart from his Sri Lanka mates Angelo Mathews and Niroshan Dickwella.

England skipper Joe Root could be set for a first ever stint in the Indian Premier League having registered himself for the auction along with 25 other English players.

Apart from these countries, players from Afghanistan (13), Bangladesh (8), Zimbabwe (7) and Ireland (2) have registered for the auction. Jofra Archer still looks set to wait out naturalization with his stated ambition to play for England but right now he could be bound for an IPL spell after his brilliant displays in the Big Bash League.

There are 30 New Zealand players on the list including Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan, Tim Southee, Colin Munro and Tom Latham.
