T20 Auction Draft

And the auction for the world's most awaited T20 Draft Premier League is on. We have a pool of 150 players from which 8 competing franchises will choose to make the minimum stipulated squad count of 15 or get more than that to have more variety within the squad.

With the league going to be played on a variety of surfaces from flat pitches to spin, pace, swing etc., a well rounded strong squad will be on every franchise owner's minds. The franchises do have a bigger purse this time of $1.2 million and so, should be waiting to use that to get the players they need for their home surface as well as away.

We have 8 strong franchises as below to start off the bidding. Some franchises even have procured an experienced coach to aid them in their decision making. So, this auction should be worth watching. Tune in to the thread as fast as you can.

Also, can you give some more explanation on how you see the squads working?
To qualify for playing the league, you need to have atleast 15 members. The T20 draft premier league is a long tournament and hence, Your squad should have ample back-up options in case of injury or if people get called upon for tests post the test auction. Final voting will happen for the full squad.

You choose your home condition and base your squad on that. But you should also be able to win away against the opposition teams who will have different conditions and so the squad should be able to cover that too as much as possible.

Just thinking aloud, post the auction and post the voting, people can call out challenges to other squads and play a friendly match on specific conditions. People can vote through emoticons in the same post with the two teams lined up.

@CricAddict - I know you were asking about max limits for players in Test Auction Draft? Are there any rules regarding that here? Just so it is clear from early on for everyone.
