When it comes to judging IPL 2021 squads, hardly anyone can argue that MI possesses the strongest of them all. The MI management smartly picked up their foreign bowlers in Adam Milne and Nathan Coulter-Nile and the all-rounder from New Zealand, James Neesham. They filled their quota of a senior leg-spinner in Piyush Chawla as well. Their scouts followed Yudhvir Charak and Marco Jensen and managed to get them on their side. The IPL 2021 auction came to an end with the junior Tendulkar, Arjun, being picked by MI for his base price of Rs. 20 lakhs.

The MS Dhoni-led side grabbed eyeballs with the peculiar addition of Cheteshwar Pujara to their squad. CSK owner, K Viswanath revealed the pick to be ‘out of respect for Pujara’s contribution to India’ and there has been no doubt about that. CSK grabbed Moeen Ali, who scored a raving quickfire 18-ball 43 at CSK’s home, the Chepauk in a Test match just a couple of days before the auction. Ali was joined by Karnataka all-rounder K Gowtham to solve CSK’s off-spin conundrum. They also picked three domestic players in MH Reddy, KB Varma and CH Nishaanth to complete their tally of 25 players.

Preity Zinta was at the helm of things for the fourteenth year in a row, but this time with a changed name on the jersey. The ‘Punjab Kings’ had plenty of money in their purse but couldn’t really manage the high-profile picks in IPL 2021 auction. They were lucky to get the No. 1 ranked ICC T20I batsman in Dawid Malan for just Rs 1.5 crores but weren’t at their best for the rest of the day. PBKS has got three X-factor foreigners like Jhye Richardson, Moises Henriques, and Fabian Allen along with four domestic Indian players.

The one that made the headlines in the IPL Teams & squads list is Chris Morris. The South African all-rounder got the fattest paycheck of them all in the history of IPL auctions when the auctioneer sold him to the Royals for Rs 16.25 crores. The rest of the picks for the Royals weren’t as extravagant as they picked the foreigners Mustafizur Rahman and Liam Livingstone alongside 5 Indians. The only Indian to have played international cricket out of the 5 was Shivam Dube.
