3 IPL teams with the most player representations in BCCI 2024 Contract List

A total of 35 players were handed a BCCI contract on Wednesday. The number has increased when compared to the list year. This contract is considering all the formats. Hence, IPL is not related here. However, by knowing the teams with the most players on this list, we could get an idea of the domestic strength of the sides. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of three IPL teams with the most player representations in the BCCI 2024 Contract List.

3) Rajasthan Royals – 5 (Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, R Ashwin, Avesh Khan and Prasidh Krishna)

Rajasthan Royals is one side that has been doing well in the recent seasons. Hence, it is not a surprise that they feature on this list.

While R Ashwin and Yashasvi Jaiswal are the important players, there are the likes of Sanju Samson, Avesh Khan and Prasidh Krishna, as well. If Dhruv Jurel plays the last Test against England, he also joins this list.

2) Mumbai Indians – 5 (Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma and Jasprit Bumrah)

Mumbai Indians have the strongest Indian core for IPL 2024. Hence, they naturally find a mention on this list. This is despite the exclusion of Ishan Kishan.

While the four top names are understandable, it is a big boost for Tilak Verma, as well, to get this contract. This will help him in the future.

1) Royal Challengers Bangalore – 6 (Virat Kohli, Mohammed Siraj, Rajat Patidar, Akash Deep, Yash Dayal and Vyshak V)

RCB is at the top of this list of IPL teams with the most player representations in the BCCI 2024 Contract List. RCB does not have a strong Indian core and yet, they belong at No.1 on this list.

The main reason is the introduction of the fast bowling contracts. In this list, as many as three RCB players have found their names recommended.
