Chris Gayle left out of IPL auction


West Indies big-hitter Chris Gayle is among the stars missing from the upcoming auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL).

More than 1,200 cricketers from India and 18 countries across the world have registered to go under the hammer in Bangalore on February 12 and 13 for the 15th edition of the world’s most lucrative cricket tournament.

Other notable absentees from the long list of players in the bidding pool for the IPL-expected to begin in late March depending on the COVID situation in India – are Ben Stokes, Mitchell Starc, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran.

Gayle, 42, delayed his retirement following the conclusion of last year’s Twenty20 World Cup, indicating his desire to play his final T20 International before his home crowd at Sabina Park in Jamaica, Ten teams will bid and participate in this year’s IPL after the addition of two new franchises – Ahedabab and Lucknow – according to The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

On Saturday the BCCI discussed logistics and the emerging COVID situation with IPL franchise owners before announcing that its showcase event will start in the last week of March and run until the end of May.

  1. Such a misleading headline. This gives the impression that he has been dropped or discarded. He simply did not register. That is totally different.
