IPL 2021 UPDATES, PLAYERS AUCTION, AND IPL RECAP 

The wait is over as IPL 2021 is announced after a few months of IPL 2020. It has been in the news for various reasons. Some of the key reasons include Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement and fans will see him again as CSK skipper. Many big names opt out from the game that include Dale Steyn who announced not playing in the IPL by commenting that IPL is more focused on money than the cricket. Or just high bids for Australian players in IPL 2021.

Here, we answer a few most asked questions about IPL 2021. Get your facts straight about the cricket.

IPL Auction 2021 is completed and there are many significant changes in the squad. Internet memers have jokes about selling people at auctions but who cares. It is pretty legal this way where eight teams engaged in a day-long tussle to fill their squads, picking from a list of 292 players shortlisted on the basis of their recent performances. Here’s the complete list of sold players.

In case you missed out on the auction, we assure that you get the full details in minutes we prepared regarding IPL auctions. These 292 players came from 11 different countries out of which 164 are from India. Once the IPL retentions released last month, everyone was shocked about star players like Glenn Maxwell and Chris Morris. Also, a few players were traded in and out during the trading window.

It was a ‘mini auction’ by definition, as teams furiously outbid each other to claim their player of choice. At the end, it was South Africa’s Chris Morris who broke the box office, registering a bumper sum of INR 16.25 crore, the most any team has spent on a player in the history of the IPL auction.

There were plenty of other buys:
