Times of Sports(TOS) listed the full list of players available for the IPL 2021 Auction. Days before on January 20 BCCI set the deadline for the IPL teams to announce their released players and retained players names.
RCB released 10 players, the most out of the eight teams. KXIP decided to end the contract for nine players. SRH had decided to retain a majority of its previous season’s squad, letting on five players go for auctions.
Some big names would be up for grabs at the auction that will take place in Chennai on February 18 after the second Test against England.
Players like Jason Roy and Steve Smith would be up for auctions along with stars like Glenn Maxwell and Tom Banton. While some players would in all probability fetch big, some will go unsold. That is the nature of the sport.
