The player auction where the brains trust from each of the eight franchises bid for the right to have that playing talent on their roster. Each club has a salary cap of approx. US$12.4m to spend on a maximum of 25 players (eight overseas). Initially all the teams were given some fixed amount to bid for players and form their teams which varied from team to team depending upon the cost each team has been bought, e.g. if MI has bought the franchise for Rs.1000 and KKR for Rs.800 then MI will get more money to bid for players than KKR but the differences were nominal and not humongous.
