Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch opt out of IPL auction

Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch have chosen not to enter the IPL auction, keeping in mind Australia’s packed schedule over the first half of 2019 – a home summer followed by a World Cup in England, and then the Ashes series.

England’s Sam Curran, one of the finds of 2018 as an allrounder, has put himself in a group of nine capped players who have listed themselves at the maximum base price of INR 2 crore (USD 278,000 approx). Also among this group is Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga, who last season was on the Mumbai Indians coaching staff, playing the role of mentor.

Mawell and Finch were among a host of players released by their franchises in November, having just spent one season with their new teams. Maxwell was released by Delhi Daredevils (now renamed Delhi Capitals), who signed him in January for INR 9 crore (USD 1.4 million approx then). Finch was picked by Kings XI Punjab for INR 6.2 crore (USD 948,000). (source)
