The current foreign CSK squad includes Sam Curran, Josh Hazlewood looks not so good. At the auction, they payed large sum for Moeen Ali and sought out Glenn Maxwell to some extent, but were unable to obtain it. As a result, their overseas groups always seem a bit weak. After the volatile IPL 2021 auction on Feb. 18, the team is now ready for the full lineup. Teams like the RCB and the PBKS, who still have large money, have been actively involved in the process. Overall, it was an interesting auction with some new names to sign the IPL contract.

Team Changes

However, there are teams that have consistently performed well at IPL over the years. These teams, like MI and CSK, have teams that cover all the bases. They have the perfect mix of Indians, ex-pats, and unlimited players.

KKR also acts as capital, holding the core and liberating those who cannot reach XI. It also means that he has shown confidence in K Yadav, who picked only 5 batsmen out of 13 appearances in the last two seasons, and D Kartik, who resigned as captain, currently announced as the Vice-Captain.


After Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals helped retain most of the players and kept the score in the final round of last season. A total of 6 or 2 people were traded and all had difficulty getting into the game’s XI.

Each team can only play four foreign players in 11 matches, further increasing their height. It is very important for the IPL team to have the best foreign players in the right roles.

Eight IPL brands announced their list of players held, issued, and traded on Wednesday ahead of the 2021 season auction next month. A total of more than 50 players were released, of which SRH held the most players, and RCB and KXIP were the ones with the most players in the auction panel. We will look at how each team’s building and the type of players each brand looks for.


Many players were released by KXIP, two of which were the largest purchases in the previous auction. Glenn Maxwell and Sheldon Cottontrell are those two players. The team management of KXIP abandoned the Australian when Maxwell returned to a low average strike rate at the last edition, but he appeared successfully in this series against Team India with a strike rate of more than 140. As he performed well against India in December, many KXIP fans were thinking he would be retained in the team. However, Anil Kumble and other team management members thought they shouldn’t retain him.

Royals are looking for a solid mid-range strike option to take part in something like David Millar. They have also released four top pacemakers and want to add designers to their team. Teams with balanced numbers of Indian and foreign players are expected to perform well. When Robin is traded, the Royals also look for an alternative opener. The board has decided to add two more teams but these two teams will be added next year.
