‘It is something new and exciting. I haven’t been a part of the auction process before. I am looking forward to it,’ Pant said in a video posted by Delhi Capitals.
The auction will take place at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, the first instance of an auction taking place overseas.
A maximum of 77 slots are now available, with up to 30 being slotted for overseas players. Rs 2 crore (Rs 20 million) is the highest reserve price, with 23 players choosing to be slotted in the highest bracket. Thirteen players are on the auction list with a base price of Rs 1.5 crore (Rs 15 million).
Pant also spoke of his recovery process in the video and thanked fans for their support while he was recuperating from surgery.
