IPL 2019 Complete list of Teams, Squads, and Players, Scheduled to commence from 23rd of March 2019, the twelfth season of Indian Premier League is historically important as players from states like Arunachal Pradesh, Bihar, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, and Union Territory Puducherry had registered for auctioning.

Out of 1003 players who registered for 70 spots available in 8 franchisees, 200 players were capped, 3 players were from associate nations (countries associated for cricket purposes, or a geographical area, which do not qualify as Full Members, but where cricket is firmly established and organized) and the rest (800) were uncapped. 50 of these spots were reserved for Indian players and 20 for players from other countries.
The auction of players for these 70 spots was held on 18th December 2018 and out of 70 players, Rs 106.86 Crores was spent on 60 players. While Jaydev Unadkat and Varun Chakravarthy occupied the joint position of the most expensive Indian Players and pocketed Rs 8.4 crores each, Sam Curran of England was the most expensive foreign player and was bought for Rs 7.2 crore by Kings XI Punjab.
