The VIVO IPL 2019 Player Auction list is now out with a total pool of 346 cricketers who underwent the hammer in Jaipur on December 18, 2018.

With India Rupees (INR) 2 crore as the highest reserve price, nine overseas players (Brendon McCullum, Chris Woakes, Lasith Malinga, Shaun Marsh, Colin Ingram, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews, and D’Arcy Short) opted to be slotted in the highest bracket.

With INR 1.5 crore as base price, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel returned to action for the 12th season of the VIVO IPL. Among the Indian quicks, Mohammed Shami set his base price at INR 1 crore while Ishant Sharma invited the first bid at INR 75 lacs.
