IPL 2016: Auctions Wildcard & Trade Rules

The trade deadline is midnight 8th April 2016.

Each player will have two wildcards in the Auctions. Both wildcards can only be used when a squad player is released from the team. The reason for a player being released is inconsequential.

The first Wildcard (A) is only valid till the first seven games (inclusive of game 7). If your player gets injured before he has played seven games, you are entitled to a Wildcard. If your player gets injured after playing seven games, bad luck!

The second Wildcard (B) is only valid till the first ten games (Inclusive of game 10). The main condition here is that this Wildcard (B) can only be used if the player who has been released is one of the top three purchases made by you at the auctions. If this player gets injured after playing ten games, you are not entitled to this Wildcard (B).

The Wildcard (A & B) can be used to bring a player in and player out of the same position, i.e. batsman-batsman / bowler-bowler / All Rounder-All Rounder. Your points of player outgoing will be carried forward to the player incoming if you bring a player in the same position. In the event of a player bringing a player in of a different position to that of a player going out, your points WILL NOT be carried forward.

The Wildcard (A & B) once approved you will get a player in to a player out from a fixed tier list which is on Google Sheets. Do not expect to get Martin Guptill for Ishan Kishan!

A player once traded or wild-carded cannot be brought back into the team. Example: Shakib Al Hassan last year went off and then came back to play for KKR. If he has been wild-carded from your team this year he will not be allowed to come back.
