IPL 2024: Before the IPL auction, the franchise releases the retention list. Before this, they had the facility to trade players.

IPL 2024: The auction for the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) season is scheduled to take place on December 19 in Dubai. Before this, all 10 franchises will have to release their retention list, the deadline for which is Sunday, November 26. November 26 is also the last day of the trade window. Franchises have the facility to trade players before releasing the retention list. Trade can happen in two ways. Franchises can either exchange cricketers among themselves or buy players by paying money.

Apart from this, if more than one franchise is interested in signing a player, then the franchise to which the cricketer belongs has the right to choose which team he will be traded to. The player’s consent is mandatory before a cricketer can be traded or transferred. The IPL Governing Council has the authority to give final approval to trade deals.

These players have been traded so far

There is news of Hardik Pandya being traded from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians.

Earlier, West Indies bowling all-rounder Romario Shepherd was traded to Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by Mumbai.

Guidelines regarding IPL trade

  • The trading window remains open from 7 days after the end of the season to 7 days before the auction.
  • It is open from the day after the Players’ Auction until 30 days before the start of the new season.
  • Players who are bought at the auction cannot be traded that season, especially immediately after the auction.
  • If the player being traded is from abroad, the franchise signing him will need an NOC from the respective board.
  • It is the responsibility of the purchasing franchise to ensure that the player being traded is match fit at the time of the trade. For this, the player may undergo a medical test.
  • No limit on trading players. Any franchise can make as many trades as it wants, but it has to keep in mind the salary cap and squad composition.
  • Any amount paid by one franchise to another during a trade will not form part of the player’s salary cap.
