A decision to this effect is likely to be taken in Mumbai today.IPL-3, would be held in 12 venues from March 12 to April 25, next year.On Wednesday, IPL Chairman Lalit Modi said players formerly linked to the rebel ICL floated by the Essel Group would be entitled to emoluments ranging from Rs 8 to 20 lakh in the IPL if they have not played any international matches.

But a formal approval by the BCCI is necessary for these players to be seen in action in the IPL, Modi said.

Seventy-nine cricketers connected with the ICL have severed their ties with the rebel league and rejoined the BCCI.

Among them are Rohan Gavaskar, Deep Dasgupta, Dinesh Mongia, Reetinder Sodhi, Hemang Badani, Sridharan Sriram and T Kumaran, all of whom have played for the country in the recent past.

Modi informed that all players would be sold at a players' auction, as has been the case for the last two years. (ANI)
