As we have seen in several mini-auctions in the past several big names went unsold, primarily because the roles which they prefer are already filled for most of the franchisees. At the same time, several Indian uncapped players had their dreams broken as they were not picked by any of the teams.


IPL Auction 2021 was a rollercoaster ride as we say some unexpected players fetching big money such as Riley Meredith and Krishnappa Gowtham. Chris Morris and Glenn Maxwell always seem to attract enough attention from the franchisees and this time was no different. Only time will tell if they will justify their price tags.


For uncapped Indian players, it was a great Auction. Krishnappa Gowtham became the highest paid Indian uncapped player by being sold for ₹9.25 Crores. Players such as Shah Rukh Khan and Mohammad Azharuddin who were the stars of the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy also found places in the IPL. IPL 2021 can be expected to be action-packed especially after the exciting Auctions which were concluded recently.
