IPL 11 auction: BCCI unsure of player retention

A team buys a certain player in the auction but later finds it hard to accommodate him in the playing XI due to their combination or team balance.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) may adopt another feature of the European football leagues by introducing a mid-tournament window where a player can become eligible to play for another franchise, the mid-day reported on Wednesday. Delhi Daredevils owner GM Rao, Mumbai Indians' Akash Ambani, Kolkata Knight Riders' Shah Rukh Khan and Jay Mehta, Kings XI Punjab's Mohit Burman and Ness Wadia were present.

The house also debated the retention numbers, the salary caps, total number of teams in the tournament and the venue of auction in the meeting attended by the team owners and Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators.

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla later stated that the idea was to invite the actual owners of the team (of the IPL) and solicit their views on the IPL after 10 years.

Chennai Super Kings, represented by George John, and Rajasthan Royals' Ranjit Barthakur pressed for the need for both the teams to have the right to retain players who were on their roster in 2015. Meanwhile, Sunrisers and Royal Challengers were happy with three retentions and two RTMs.

In 2014, the IPL had come up with a combination of retention and "right to match" cards, leading to each team being able to continue with a maximum of six players from the previous season.

Sources also said that KKR representatives raised an issue over CSK getting to retain their original top players like MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo when they are supposed to start from scratch after serving the two-year ban.

According to the IPL official, final decisions on all the matters are likely to be taken at the next Governing Council meeting, which will then have to be approved by the COA.

As far as how many players will be allowed to be retained, Shukla said: "There were different opinions and we will take into account the majority". It is understood that Royals have told the IPL they want to play in Jaipur.
