IPL Players Auction 2021 LIVE: Morris, Gowtham Among Big Winners
IPL Players Auction 2021 LIVE: 61 spots up for grabs as 291 players go under the hammer in Chennai.
IPL Auction LIVE: Starts at 3pm
292 shortlisted players will go under the hammer at the IPL auction in Chennai today with 164 among them being Indians. A total of 1097 players had originally enlisted for the auction but the list was pruned after franchises were asked which players they would be interested in.
Rs.2 crore is the highest base price in today’s ‘mini’ IPL auction and two Indians -- Harbhajan Singh and Kedar Jadhav -- and eight overseas players in Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Shakib Al Hasan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy & Mark Wood are in the highest bracket.
There are 12 players in the auction list with a base price of Rs.1.5 crore, though there are no Indians in it, while in the 11-player Rs.1 crore category, only Hanuma Vihari and Umesh Yadav are the Indians.
Well, that's that from the IPL Auction this year.
Thrilling and entertaining as always, the IPL 2021 Player Auction has come to an end. Chris Morris goes home with the distinction of being the most expensive player ever while another Tendulkar has made his way into the scheme of things.
