The two Australian batsmen have made the decision, keeping in mind a busy schedule and the Cricket World Cup, which will start in England, weeks after the conclusion of IPL, according to ESPNCricinfo.

As many as 232 players have registered for the upcoming IPL auctions.

Among the Indians, Yuvraj Singh - after a dismal IPL 2018 - will enter the auction with a base price of Rs 1 crore. The allocated numbers go to 232 overseas cricketers and 746 Indian cricketers.

Bangladesh (10) and Zimbabwe (5) are the other countries that have seen registrations.

The eight franchises have a total available purse of Rs 145.25 crore. Yuvraj Singh, Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel, all at a base price of INR 1 crore (USD 138,000 approx).

South Africa have the maximum number of contestants with 59 of them to be bid in the auction; this is followed by 35 from Australia while West Indies are third in the list having 33 entrants.

Among the foreign players, 35 Australians have registered themselves while 27 players are from Afghanistan.

In the Rs 2 crore bracket list, there are no Indians and the list is populated by veterans of the game as well as find of the India-England Test series, Sam Curran.

Aiming to fill up the available 70 spots are 200 capped players, 800 uncapped and three players from Associate Nations.

Another notable development will be the absence of auctioneer Richard Madley, who became a regular feature during the IPL auctions over the years.

The franchises will have to send their shortlist of players within 5:00 pm on December 10 (Monday).
