The VIVO IPL 2021 Player Auction list is out with a total of 292 cricketers set to go under the hammer in Chennai on February 18th, 2021. 1114 cricketers had initially registered for the auction. The final list was then pruned after the eight franchises submitted their shortlist of players.
INR 2 crore is the highest reserve price and two Indian players – Harbhajan Singh and Kedar Jadhav – and eight overseas players – Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Shakib Al Hasan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy & Mark Wood have chosen to be slotted in the highest bracket.
12 players are in the auction list with a base price of INR 1.5 crore. Hanuma Vihari and Umesh Yadav are the two Indian players in the list of 11 cricketers with a base price of INR 1 crore.
A total of 164 Indian players, 125 overseas players and 3 players from Associate Nations will be up for grabs in the VIVO IPL 2021 Player Auction in Chennai. The Auction will start at 3 PM IST.
Franchises announced player retention list last month
The franchises announced the list of retained and released players last month on January 20. However, the trading window closed on Thursday at 5 PM and it led to the BCCI releasing the final players list after the franchises provided them with the required cricketers list.
Among big players, the likes of Joe Root, Mitchell Starc and James Pattinson have already decided to skip the auction possible for different reasons. A total of 61 slots are set to be filled out of which 22 are for overseas players and it will be interesting to see who manages to bag the elusive IPL contract.
Among the trending names is Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar who made his debut for senior Mumbai team in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this season. He has been shortlisted and it remains to be seen who shows interest in him. Arjun has kept his base price at Rs 20 lakh while the SMAT stars Mohammed Azharudeen and Shahrukh Khan has also been shortlisted by the franchises.
