IPL 2024 Auction: Rajasthan Royals (RR): Retained, Released, Target Players And Full Coaching Staff List. Rajasthan Royals, who secured their first title in 2008, are still aiming for their second Indian Premier League trophy. Despite being runners-up in the 2022 season, they were anticipated to make a strong comeback in the 2023 season. However, under the leadership of Sanju Samson, the team didn’t meet expectations, finishing in 5th place on the IPL 2023 points table with 7 wins out of 14 league matches.

With a mini auction scheduled for the 2024 edition, RR could seize the opportunity to enhance their squad for the upcoming season. The BCCI has slated the IPL 2024 Auction to take place in Dubai on December 19, and teams have until November 26 to finalise their lists of retained and released players. Remarkably, this marks the first instance of holding an IPL auction overseas.

For the IPL 2024 Auction, the BCCI has boosted the purse value of franchises by an additional INR 5 crores, bringing it to approximately INR 100 crores from the previous INR 95 crores. Once the team submits their lists of retained and released players for the upcoming event, the determination of the team’s ultimate purse value will occur.

The selection of Hugh Edmeades as the auctioneer for the IPL 2024 auction is under consideration. Since 2008, Edmeades, a distinguished cricket auctioneer, has been associated with IPL auctions, earning recognition for his wit and proficiency in maintaining a swift pace during the proceedings. Additionally, Edmeades holds respect as a cricket commentator and broadcaster.
