IPL Season 2 trading window plans confirmed

Following the success of the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL), which saw quality cricket and the success in spreading the awareness of the game, the challenge for the League in its Season 2 will be to engage the consumers and to retain that audience. The IPL on December 17 confirmed the plans for the trading window, which will commence from December 22, 2008 and continue till January 22, 2008, allowing the eight franchises to trade players.

Lalit Modi, Chairman and Commissioner, Indian Premier League, said, “Having laid the foundation for success in the first season of the IPL, it is only critical that we take the League on to greater heights in 2009. This meeting on the Player Trading Regulations is important steps in helping franchises redress the integral balance of their playing squads to make them more competitive. I am certain that the trading window set to open on Monday, December 22, 2008, will see some active trading – which will only result in significantly improving the competitiveness of the franchises, making for an even more exhilarating and action packed season for the IPL fans in 2009.”

Highlights of the discussion

It was decided that the maximum number of international players in each squad would be 10, nevertheless, the number of international players in the playing eleven would remain at four.

It was also decided that “If more than one franchise is interested in buying the player, the ‘selling’ franchise shall negotiate with all interested franchises”. The ‘selling’ franchise shall have the discretion as to which offer to accept.

Player Auction will be held on Friday, February 6, 2009, for the new players, those that did not feature in the IPL Season 1 2008.
