Players unsold at auction available as replacements
IPL franchises will be allowed to sign on 'unsold' players at next month's auction as replacements for contracted cricketers who won't be available for the entire season this year. The IPL's latest decision, which could make for a busier auction, also allows franchises to sign uncapped players not part of the auction as replacements.

Franchise officials said the move could particularly help overcome the uncertainty surrounding the availability of Pakistan players for the tournament following the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Players unsold during the February 6 auction will be available at a fee "equivalent to or greater than the reserve price", the release said, though the amount spent on them would not count towards the US$2 million cap on player purchases for each franchise.
