Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff are among eight England cricket players named in the auction for the Indian Premier League.

The England cricket board has allowed its contracted players to play in this season's IPL after stopping them last year with the players going into the February auction to decide who plays for which team.

According to IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, Monty Panesar, Steve Harmison, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Matt Prior and Owais Shah have also been included.
