Watch Tuesday’s IPL auction via a live stream on Sky Sports’ digital platformsDecember 20, 2018
You can watch Tuesday’s IPL auction via our live stream on skysports.com and the Sky Sports app as 18 English players, including Sam Curran and one-day skipper Eoin Morgan, hope to secure deals.
The bidding war in Jaipur will include 351 players but most will be left unhappy with a maximum of 70 players – 50 Indians and 20 overseas stars – to be purchased as the eight franchises supplement their squads for the 2019 season, which will begin in late March.
Follow our live stream in the video above from 10am UK time to see who goes where, including England’s Jonny Bairstow, Alex Hales and Chris Woakes, veteran South Africa seamers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel and New Zealanders Brendon McCullum and Corey Anderson.
Six English players – including the soon-to-qualify Jofra Archer – have already been retained by franchises for next year’s campaign.
Archer will join Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler at Rajasthan Royals once again, with Sam Billings and David Willey kept on by defending champions Chennai Super Kings and Moeen Ali retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The likes of Curran, Hales, Bairstow, Morgan, Joe Denly, Pat Brown, Mark Wood, Liam Livingstone, Luke Wright, Samit Patel, Steven Finn and Laurie Evans will be aiming to join them by earning contracts on Tuesday.
