Cape Town - There will be 23 South Africans in the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction that will take place on Thursday in Kolkata.
The auction gets underway at 12:00 SA time.
Out of the 971 players registered only 332 are in line for IPL spots as they looked to be picked up by one of the eight franchises.
And Proteas fast bowler Dale Steyn will be part of the highest auction bracket after he was valued at 2 Crore (R4m).
Steyn ended as the third-highest wicket taker in the Mzansi Super League (MSL) - behind Imran Tahir on 17 and Tabraiz Shamsi on 16 - as he finished with 15 scalps in eight games.
Proteas all-rounder Chris Morris and former Proteas fast bowler Kyle Abbott are in the 150 Lakhs (R2.5m) bracket, while former Proteas batsman Colin Ingram should go under the hammer for around 100 Lakhs (R2m).
Other South Africans in the line-up include Proteas fast bowlers Anrich Nortje and Beuran Hendricks and Shamsi (all at 50 Lakhs or R1m).
A number of Proteas were retained by their franchises including Quinton de Kock (Mumbai Indians) and Tahir, Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi (Chennai Super Kings).
The IPL's highest wicket-taker last season, Kagiso Rabada, was retained by the Delhi Capitals.
