In the guidelines documents, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) called for both capped and uncapped players to register online for the Women’s IPL 2023 auction to enter Player Auction Register.

As per the current protocols in the Men’s IPL, the Board will shortlist the players from the ‘Auction Register’ in recommendation with the five yet-to-be-established franchises to form an ‘Auction List’. Notably, the players who enter the ‘Registered Available Player Pool’ are only allowed to get picked as replacement players after going unsold at the auction.

Meanwhile, three ‘reverse price’ categories have been set by the board for the capped players – INR 50 lakh, INR 40 lakh, and INR 30 lakh – which will be the starting point for bidding. Also, two categories have been set for the uncapped players – INR 20 lakh and INR 10 lakh.

Talking further about the Women’s IPL, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already announced the release of an Invitation to Tender for the right to own and operate a Women’s IPL (WIPL) franchise. The BCCI has informed that the entities will have to make a payment of INR 5 lakh, which will be non-refundable, by January 21 to access the Invitation to Tender (ITT).
