The auction will be held ahead of the the15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Before that, IPL franchises Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals have released Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and pacer Mustafizur Rahman.

Mustafizur Rahman was in excellent form last season. In a word, he was the leading pacer of the team. But, Rajasthan left him this time. Mustafiz took 14 wickets with an economy of 8.41 in the last season. Rajasthan roped him for Rs.1 crore.

Kolkata have retained four players - Sunil Narine and Andre Russell from West Indies and Varun Chakravarthy and Venkatesh Iyer from India. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have retained Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal.
