Chennai, Feb 2: With less than 24 hours to go for the start of IPL 6 player auction, the nine franchises would have drawn up the final list of cricketers who they want to bid for.
Sunday's (February 3) auction will have 101 players going under the hammer with Australians Michael Clarke and Ricky Ponting with highest reserve prices of $400,000 each.
Rajasthan Royals have the maximum funds to spend in this auction. They have $7.7 million while Hyderabad's new owners Sun Network have $7 million.
This mini-auction is likely to be a low-key affair with most of the teams already settled and only looking to fill a couple of spots. The IPL 6 Auction will be telecast Live on Sony Six TV channel. It will begin at 11 AM.
This year's IPL will start on April 3.
