WPL 2024 Auction: Teams, full squads, purse, live streaming– all you need to know


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will conduct the Women’s Premier League (WPL) mini-auction in Mumbai on Saturday, December 9, to determine the squads. A total of 165 players will compete for 30 spots, including nine from overseas, 104 Indians, and 61 from overseas, including 15 from Associate nations.

56 capped players and 109 uncapped players might go under the hammer in the auction. The second edition of the WPL will most likely be held in February-March, before the IPL. In contrast to the initial edition, which was held in a single city, the 2024 edition will be held in Mumbai and Bangalore.

With the largest purse going into the WPL auction on Saturday, last season’s wooden spooner Gujarat Giants will attempt to fix the holes ahead of the league’s 2024 edition, while the four other teams will be looking to fine-tune their squads.

Remaining Purse: Rs 2.10 crore

Slots Available: 5 (1 overseas)

Champions Mumbai Indians also have five slots available, including one overseas. With a purse of Rs 2.1 crore, MI did not lose much in terms of player release because their core remains intact, as does skipper Harmanpreet Kaur’s approach of stacking the playing XI with all-rounders. The Mumbai Indians may look for young players to add to their camp and groom for the future.

However, after losing someone as skilled and experienced as South Africa’s Ismail, the UP Warriorz are likely to look for another frontline fast bowler to improve their attack while also filling the vacuum left by Devika Vaidya’s departure.
