Simi Singh and Paul Stirling have put their names forward for inclusion in the 2018 IPL auction.

The duo are the only two Irish internationals among the 1182 on the list, 282 of which come from overseas.

Stirling impressed during the recent T10 competition in the UAE and has many admirers for his swashbuckling style.

30 year-old Singh had a prolific 2017 season domestically which saw him earn senior recognition with Ireland and has won five caps to date.

However he has yet to fully establish himself in the Irish set-up, having only played five matches to date and has yet to feature in the ongoing tri-series in the UAE.

Here's hoping one of the pair become the first players to step onto the IPL circuit.
