After a delay of almost half a year, India's biggest sporting festival, Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL) will get underway in the UAE from September 19, when Chennai Super Kings take on Mumbai Indians in the opener.
Mumbai Indians are the defending champions, having won the 2019 IPL for the fourth time, also holding the most IPL titles by a team.
The auction for the IPL 2020 teams & squads took place on 19 December 2019 in Kolkata. There were a total of 73 slots to fill, relatively less than the previous editions. 29 of these 72 slots were reserved for foreign players.
A total of 62 players including 29 overseas players were sold in the auctions for the 2020 IPL. Pat Cummins became the player with the highest value with Kolkata Knight Riders acquiring him for 15.50 crores.
However, owing to these unprecedented circumstances, many IPL 2020 teams have had to make tweaks to their squads, with CSK, in particular, looking to replace two experienced veterans, after Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina opted out of the tournament.
Below, we have listed every team’s updated IPL 2020 squad.
