New Delhi: Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh have retained their highest base price bracket of Rs.2 crore for the upcoming IPL auctions.



There are 46 capped Indian players on the list of 208 international players who have enrolled for the auction.

Kiwi sensation Corey Anderson's base price is a relatively modest Rs.1 crore; it is widely expected, though, that Anderson's price will go through the roof after recent exploits — he broke the record for the fastest century in ODIs and his performances against India in the ongoing ODI series has been stupendous with bat and ball.

While Michael Clarke has pulled out of the auction, Ashes hero Mitchell Johnson's base price is Rs.2 crore.

Like Sehwag and Yuvraj, Ashish Nehra is also expected to fetch atleast Rs.2 crore or more at the auction, going by his highest bracket base price.

Dinesh Karthik, who was widely tipped to be retained by Mumbai Indians, also has a base price of Rs. 2 crore.
