The highest rupee in Punjab’s purse to buy players
The salary purse (budget) of the franchise in this season of IPL has remained the same as last season at Rs 85 crore, which means that the salary budget has not increased this time due to Corona, while in 2019 the budget was Rs 80 crore and in 2018 it was Rs 66 crore. This time, Punjab has the highest amount of Rs 53.20 crore to buy players. Under the rule, the minimum cost of a team should be Rs 60 crore, which means the value of the salary cap is 75 percent.
Right to Match Card (RTM Card) can be used
Through the Right to Match card, the franchise can return its old players to the auction. For that, he will have to pay the highest bid on the player in the auction. The Rajasthan Royals, for example, have not returned Steve Smith this season. If a franchisee has placed the highest bid on him during the auction, Rajasthan can bring him to their team using the RTM card. A maximum of 5 players can be retained by the franchisee (RTM card).
