Among the Indians, Yuvraj Singh - after a dismal IPL 2018 - will enter the auction with a base price of Rs 1 crore.

Bangladesh (10) and Zimbabwe (5) are the other countries that have seen registrations. The allocated numbers go to 232 overseas cricketers and 746 Indian cricketers.

One player each from Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands and United States of America have also registered for the auctions.

The eight franchises have a total available purse of Rs 145.25 crore.
