As per developments, it was revealed that the existing eight teams can retain up to four players ahead of the IPL 2022 auction.
The two new teams can acquire three players
According to a report in Cricinfo, the two new teams can acquire three players from the player pool before the mega auction. The report added that while there is no confirmed date for the auction, the purse is likely to be Rs. 90 crore.

The existing eight teams will have two different combinations in terms of applying while picking the four players who would be retained. The first combination can have three Indian players and one overseas recruit. The second combination can have two Indians and two overseas players.
