ISL 2017-18 Player Draft: From big-money moves to smart signings, complete list of players picked up

The 2017 Indian Super League (ISL) Player Draft took place in Mumbai on Sunday and all the teams have built their home-grown contingent after 15 rounds of the draft process. The teams had a total salary cap of Rs 18 crore, out of which Rs 12.5 crore were reserved for foreign players. The 10 clubs together spent Rs 48.85 crore while in 2014, the eight teams that were part of the tournament spent a total of Rs 24 crore to acquire all the players.

The two Tata Group-owned teams, Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC, were added to the ISL roster ahead of the draft. Except Delhi Dynamos and Jamshedpur, every team had at least two players already in their ranks at the start of the draft, which meant that these two sides started first in the auction. Jamshedpur wasted no time and roped in Anas Edathodika, one of the costliest players in the draft, for a whopping Rs 1.1 crore. The newcomers picked up ace goalkeeper Subrata Paul as well. Apart from Anas, Eugeneson Lyngdoh was signed by reigning champions ATK for a similar amount.

The likes of ATK, Bengaluru and Jamshedpur signed a few big names, while teams like NorthEast United FC and FC Goa focused more on young, local talents.

The fourth edition of the ISL no longer has the requirement of fielding a marquee player. Moreover, a new regulation suggests that a minimum of six Indian players should be present on the field which is an increase from the five needed till the last season.

Let's take a look at the complete list of Indian players picked by the teams:
