A total of 77 slots are to be filled in this auction and 30 of those are overseas slots. The franchises have a collective Rs 262.95 crores to spend to add strength to their squads.

IPL teams announced their player retention and releases by the deadline of 26 November. However, teams can still trade players until 12 December, a week before the mini-auction.

The BCCI and IPL Governing Council will decide the dates for the IPL 2024 after Election Commission of India (ECI) declares the polling schedule for the Lok Sabha elections next year.
