In the IPL auction player list, India all-rounder Deepak Hooda has been elevated to the capped category. In the just-finished ODI series between India and the West Indies in Ahmedabad, he made his international debut. Following his much-anticipated debut, Hooda has hiked his basic price from INR 40 lakh to INR 75 lakh. The all-rounder scored 55 runs at a strike rate of 96.49 in the two One-Day Internationals he played in the three-match series.

In the meantime, the BCCI has added ten more players to its auction roster. On February 12 and 13, a total of 600 players will be auctioned off in Bengaluru. Agnivesh Ayachi, Hardik Tamore, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Mihir Hirwani, Monu Kumar, Rohan Rana, and Sairaj Patil have been added to the list in the hopes of receiving a bid from the clubs.

At the eleventh hour, three additional Australian players—Aaron Hardie, Lance Morris, and Nivethan Radhakrishnan—were added to the roster. According to Cricbuzz, the Indian U19 players were not qualified according to the criteria, and their names have not been inserted.

On Saturday, 97 players, up to set number 11, will be auctioned off from the 600 that will be auctioned off during the weekend. The auction will begin with a set of ten marquee players, who will be among the 54 players capped in the first six sets. The uncapped players make up the remaining five sets.
