New entrants Sahara Pune Warriors have registered all 30 players for the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League, which start on April 8, while the Shah Rukh Khan co-owned Kolkata Knight Riders, which failed to make it to the semi-finals in the past three editions, have only 20 on their roster.

Defending champions and runners-up Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have 24 and 23 players registered respectively.

Delhi Daredevils registered 29 players, RCB has 25 players. Kochi Tuskers Kerala, Deccan Chargers and Rajasthan Royals have named 27 players for the cash-rich league.

The Preity Zinta-Ness Wadia co-owned Kings XI Punjab have named 23 players.

While Rajasthan Royals, who were penalised financially, exhausted their full purse, Mumbai Indians had only US $1739 of their US $9 million purse remaining. This is due to Mumbai Indians opting to retain four players --- Sachin Tendulkar, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga and Harbhajan Singh for US$ 4.5 million.

Deccan Chargers had the maximum amount, US $1.49 million, left after the buy-outs, followed by Kings XI Punjab, who had US $1.46 million (approx) left.
