Another big factor in the auction on Tuesday is going to be the availability of players for the complete duration of the league. Except New Zealand and West Indies, all other boards have restricted the availability of their players. Australia and England players (especially those in the ODI World Cup scheme of things) are likely to spend the least time in the league.
