IPL 2020, mid-season transfer: Eligibility criteria, window and full list of cricketers available for trading

The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is currently underway in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is distinctive in many ways. There are many unique features about this year’s competition but perhaps the most interesting one has to be the provision of mid-season transfer of capped and uncapped players.

For the first time in the history of IPL, the governing council of the tournament has allowed the eight participating franchises to trade off its capped and uncapped cricketers internally, in the middle of the tournament. In the previous editions only uncapped players were allowed for trading but this year the authorities have tweaked the rules and so that teams can further strengthen itself as per the dynamics of their respective squads.

The transfer window:

The transfer window will open up at the halfway stage of the league when all the eight franchises have played a minimum of seven matches each.

Any player (Indian and overseas) who haven’t played more than two matches in this year’s IPL will be eligible for this mid-season trading. However, there has to be a mutual consent between the franchises while moving the players. The transfer window will also allow the franchises to sign players whom they couldn’t buy at the pre-season auction back in December 2019.

Here is the complete list of cricketers who could be eligible for trading this year. This is a tentative list since as of now teams are yet to play seven matches each and the dynamics may change when the transfer window finally opens up.
