Jharkhand right-hander Ishank Jaggi has been included in the auction pool as one of the late entrants after a string of good performances in the final leg of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy.

Jaggi was not kept in pruned list of 351 players that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced after consultation with the franchises.

But scores of 51 no off 37 balls vs Central Zone, 90 off 51 balls against South Zone and 58 off 34 balls against West Zone forced the franchises to do a rethink and include him in the pool. His base price is Rs 10 lakh.

Some of the other late entrants are former India U-19 pacer Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Kshitij Sharma to name a few.
