Lucknow Super Giants are also beleived to have stayed away, however, it is still not clear whether Punjab Kings were present

The confirmed list of interested entities is yet to be released, but as earlier reported big corporate houses like the Adani Group and Torrent Pharma have expressed interest, while others like Uday Kotak, Chettinad Cement, JK Cement, AWL Appollo, Nilgiri, and Haldiram had taken the Invitation To Tender (ITT) document.  

Those who meet the criteria set by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will be eligible to participate in the financial bidding which will be on Wednesday. The key requirement is INR 1000 crore net worth clause.
