IPL Unpicked Players List 2016:Two new Indian Premier League franchises based in Pune and Rajkot will choose ten players in the Players’ draft on December 15 in Mumbai.The bidding process for the two new franchises was necessitated by the suspension of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for the involvement of some of their officials and co-owners in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal, which was probed by the Supreme Court-appointed Justice (retd) RM Lodha committee.

However, both the CSK and RR will be allowed back in the league after serving out their suspension.The cricketers from the two suspended franchises will be divided into two groups of capped and uncapped and the top names will be sold through the draft system. The two new teams will have a minimum of Rs 40 crore and a maximum of Rs 66 crore to buy players.
A player of Shane Watson’s class was not picked. Tim Southee, Dwayne Smith, Pravin Tambe, Irfan Pathan, Karun Nair, Sanju Samson, Kane Richardson, Chris Morris and more remained unpicked on Tuesday’s draft. One cannot really blame the two new franchises as they could pick only five best players from the suspended teams Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).
The players who remained unpicked in the draft on Tuesday will automatically be added to the auction list. Both Team Pune and Rajkot have spent more or less around Rs 39-40 crore on Tuesday and they will have a balance of Rs 27 crore to spend during the auction on 6 Februrary for IPL 2016.
