This year auction will be held for 2 days earlier this month retention event held for the IPL where each franchise can retain a maximum of 5 players from both retention process and RTM process. Let’s have a look what is the procedure for retention this year.
Each franchise will get a chance to retain their own team players from their squad. Every franchise will get a chance to retain a maximum of 3 players in the retention even remaining 2 players can be retained in the auction event through RTM card.
RTM- Right To Match
RTM plays an important role in this years auction. where any player from one particular franchise bids and going to be sold to another franchise then the auctioneer will ask old franchise owner to sell or not. If the old franchise wants that player means they can use RTM card which means the highest bid amount will be paid by the old franchise itself. This benefits franchise to get back their players.
If X is a player and Y is the old owner. Z is a new franchise and bids for that player X. Then if Y interested to bring back X into their squad means Y can use RTM card and pays the bid amount where Z is ready to pay.
In this year money purse is increased to 80cr. Uncapped players base price is increased from 10lacks to 20lacks. So each franchise starts their auction with 80cr but in the retention event, some franchise used their purse.
