Mumbai: After a gap of ten years, all teams at the Indian Premier League (IPL) may wear a fresh look, thanks to the mega auction scheduled for 27 and 28 January in Bengaluru. A total of 578 players — pruned from the initial list of 1122 — will go under the hammer under eight distinct slabs.

While there is considerable buzz about who the top buys could be, names of 16 'marquee players' have been confirmed, and they include English duo of Ben Stokes and Joe Root, besides India's premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin .

A total of 62 capped and 298 uncapped Indian cricketers will vie for the available slots with 182 capped overseas cricketers, 34 uncapped overseas players and two cricketers from Associate nations.
