Delhi Daredevils scouts prompted management to sign David Warner early in the off-season

With most international players (barring members of the England squad and Indian Cricket League players) signing up for the first season on multi-season contracts, the emphasis for off-season signings for 2009 were possible up-and-coming young players from international domestic circuits. Some teams, including the Delhi Daredevils sent scouts to domestic and 'emerging player' matches held in Australia to sign up players.[7]

Pre-auction signings

Post-auction signings
Any 'unsold' players as well as players sought after as replacements for Pakistani players who would be unable to play for their IPL team in 2009 can be signed on after the auction. These include:


IPL Replacement Players, filling in for players away on national duty, and some under-19 players, were recruited with a one-year contract and hence their franchises had the choice to resign them or release them as free agents.


Other players opted to withdraw from this particular season from the IPL, but have not ruled out returning in the future. In most cases, the reason for withdrawal was that the players wanted a break from the hectic international schedule. There have also been withdrawals due to injury and also Pakistanis who have had their contracts terminated or suspended due to tensions between India and Pakistan since the Mumbai Terrorist Attacks. Most withdrawals were Australian international players, for whom the IPL would be the only break between a series against Pakistan and the upcoming long tour of England which would include The Ashes series. Withdrawals included:


Kevin Pietersen was signed for a record 1.55 million USD by Bangalore Royal Challengers and made captain of the team

The 2009 Indian Premier League Players Auction was held on 6 February 2009 in Goa, India. A total of 43 players from 9 countries were shortlisted for the auction.[8] However, only 17 of them were sold.[9] The English duo of Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff each went for US$ 1.55 million, which made them the highest-paid cricketers in the IPL.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16]
