Recently the IPL, which will be a 10-team league 2022 onwards, had enhanced the auction purse to 90 crore while setting various retention slabs. The existing franchises can retain a total of four players while the two new unnamed franchise – to be based in Lucknow and Ahmedabad – can buy up to three players each from the pool after the original eight teams have made their retentions.

In case a franchise retains four players, 42 crore will be deducted from the total purse. For three retentions the purse will shrink by 33 crore, while for two retentions it will reduce by 24 crore and in case of one retention 14 crore would be deducted from the purse.
