The BCB said the maximum squad size of a team should be 16 players. There will be a random draw for each set of the Draft to decide the order for the five participating teams to call their players of choice.
For the second round of each set, the call order will be reversed. For example, if a team gets to call first in round one, it will call last in the second round.
For each set there will be two rounds of calls. Each team will get one opportunity to call in each round. A team may call their player of choice from any category. After one set there will be a fresh draw to decide the order of calls.There will be maximum of eight sets for conducting the Player Draft.Once a player is chosen from the Draft, he cannot be withdrawn unless he is unavailable due to injury, illness, unavailability on medical grounds or any other logically acceptable reason.
Players can only be recruited from the Draft list. But in case of any injury, illness, unavailability of any player, teams may request for replacements. The replacement player has to be of the same or lower grade and from the unsold players' list.
