It is believed that the invitation for this meeting has been sent by IPL CEO Hemang Amin.

The focus will be on retention during the meeting: It is understood that during this meeting there can be a discussion regarding the retention of players before the auction. IPL teams have different opinions regarding this matter. There is no consensus on the number of players to be retained and it is believed that BCCI will find a middle path to resolve the issue. Some IPL franchise owners believe that the retention number should be increased. He argues that teams have established themselves and now need continuity to strengthen their brand and fan base. Some franchisees suggest that the retention number should be increased to eight. However, other sections are opposing it and say that the number of retentions should be reduced.

There will be discussion regarding salary cap: Another important point regarding salary cap can also be discussed during the meeting. This is a topic on which there is always controversy. BCCI has also had a strong stand regarding this. The salary cap in the mini auction held last year was Rs 100 crore, but it is believed that it will increase.
