IPL 2021 Auction - What the teams need
February 16 2021


The auction will be held on February 18.
At 15:00 IST on Thursday (February 18), the player auction for the 2021 season of the IPL will commence at the ITC Grand Chola Hotel in Chennai.

In an ideal scenario, this auction would have been the first of a new three-year cycle and would have been a two-day affair with teams undergoing a major overhaul. Given the Coronavirus pandemic and the proposal of new team(s) coming in for the 2022 season, this will remain a 'mini' auction with just 292 players (164 Indian, 125 overseas and 3 Associate) going under the hammer as the eight teams look to tweak or top-up their squads in a bid to find the winning core before the next big auction.

As was the case last season, each team can have upto 25 players in their squad with no more than 8 overseas players. The value of the roster cannot exceed INR 85 cr.

Cricbuzz presents a lowdown on each team ahead of the event, breaking down their existing combinations, and charts their possible auction strategy.

Samson has been named captain for the 2021 season.

Rajasthan Royals

Purse:INR 37.85 cr || Slots left: 9 || Overseas slots left: 3

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Sanju Samson (c&wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Manan Vohra, Anuj Rawat

Finishers: Riyan Parag, David Miller

All-rounders: Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror

Spinners: Shreyas Gopal, Mayank Markande

Fast bowlers: Jofra Archer, Andrew Tye, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi

Issues & Requirements:

New captain Sanju Samson and the Royals management have a task on their hand trying to right the wrongs of a wooden-spoon finish last season. To that end, they've taken a bold step of releasing their captain Steve Smith. Not only does it open up an overseas slot in the playing XI, they can look to address balance in both the batting and bowling departments.

- Yashasvi Jaiswal didn't have the breakthrough season he was banked on to have at the top of the order and that was one of the reasons for the Royals using as many as five different opening combinations in 14 games. They ended last season with Ben Stokes as the opener and Jos Buttler in the middle-order.

- Samson remains the only experienced Indian batsman in the squad that has now lost Robin Uthappa to CSK (trade). The Royals lost joint-most wickets (29) in the PowerPlay last season and need a semblance of stability amidst a series of exciting batsmen. A bit of a left-field choice but a player like Kedar Jadhav could get a new lease of life in a new environment.

- Despite Jofra Archer's MVP-winning season, the Royals were the worst team with the ball in death overs. They conceded at 11.6 RPO, picked the fewest wickets (20) and conceded the most boundaries in this phase. Smith's release could allow more playing time for Andrew Tye in the XI, with the seamer seemingly having added a yard of pace (touched 150kph) at the Big Bash League.

- Having released Varun Aaron and Ankit Rajpoot, a backup Indian seamer should also be on the shopping list, and an Indian batsman to replace Robin Uthappa, possibly Baroda's Vishnu Solanki

Possible Targets: Kedar Jadhav, Gurkeerat Mann, Shivam Dube, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Lukman Meriwala, Chetan Sakariya, Vishnu Solanki, Harbhajan Singh

Raina's return will bolster CSK this season.
Chennai Super Kings

Purse: INR 19.90 cr || Slots left: 6 || Overseas slots left: 1

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, N. Jagadeesan (wk), Robin Uthappa

Finishers: MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ravindra Jadeja

All-rounders: Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo

Spinners: Karn Sharma, R. Sai Kishore, Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir

Fast bowlers: Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi, Josh Hazlewood, KM Asif

Issues & Requirements:

His recent form nothwithstanding, Suresh Raina's return to CSK's XI not only adds a left-hander to CSK's top-order but also opens up a foreign player position for Imran Tahir to feature regularly. Tahir should fix the middle-overs bowling where Jadeja, Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma struggled to pick wickets as well as contain runs.

- In a far cry from the days of Matthew Hayden and Brendon McCullum, CSK have lacked oomph in their top-order, with PowerPlay run-rates in the last two seasons 6.44 and 7.13 significantly lower than the tournament average.

- Frontloading with another power-hitter like Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Jason Roy or even the exciting Finn Allen is an option but all of them are likely to have lots of spin thrown at them in the IPL. Alternatively, CSK can pursue Glenn Maxwell or Moeen Ali as their final overseas option and find a space for them in the top-four. They'll likely ensure CSK aren't behind the eight-ball in run chases (common theme in IPL 2020) and also offset the loss of an off-spinner in the squad following the departures of Harbhajan Singh and Kedar Jadhav.

- They had an economy of 10.62 bowling at the death last season - third-worst in the league. Dwayne Bravo's fitness and form have been a concern for a couple of seasons now.

- A back-up Indian seamer could be a possible pick. R. Sai Kishore's promising Syed Mushtaq Ali season with the ball (8 wickets at ER 4.82) may ensure against making another addition to the spin department.

Possible Targets: Glenn Maxwell, Moeen Ali, Alex Hales/Jason Roy/Dawid Malan/Aaron Finch, Lukman Meriwala, Chetan Sakariya, K. Gowtham, Shivam Dube, Sam Billings

With 53 crores in their kitty, KXIP will be fairly active at the auction.

Kings XI Punjab

Purse: INR 53.20 cr || Slots left: 9 || Overseas slots left: 5

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: KL Rahul (c&wk), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Prabsimran Singh

Finishers: Nicholas Pooran (wk), Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda

All-rounders: -

Spinners: Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Harpreet Brar

Fast-bowlers: Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Ishan Porel, Darshan Nalkande, Chris Jordan

Issues & Requirements:

With over INR 53 crores in their kitty, KXIP will be fairly active at the auction and will predominantly shop in the overseas market. Their purse situation will be a double-edged sword: they can bully other teams into getting their targets but may also be pushed into overpaying for them.

- As ever, KXIP need all-rounders in the middle of their line-up, having released both Glenn Maxwell and James Neesham. It remains to be seen if there is a third re-union with the Australian at a lower price but KXIP will be better served with a value pick like Shakib Al Hasan who is back in the market after a one-year suspension. Chris Morris is another attractive proposition given his death-bowling prowess.

- On the subject of bowling, KXIP had the second-most expensive attack in IPL 2020 (ER 8.67), the second-highest ER in Powerplays (8.31) and death overs (11.17). Their fast bowlers went at 11.86 in death overs, by far the most expensive. The Sheldon Cottrell punt didn't pay off and if Shakib comes, signing his compatriot Mustafizur Rahman could make it a nice combo.

- KXIP could also do with a middle-order controller like a Steve Smith to insure a top-heavy line-up prone to self-destructing tendencies. With Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Maxwell and K. Gowtham let go, an off-spinner will also be on the cards.

Possible Targets: Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Morris, Ben Cutting, Daniel Christian, Jhye Richardson, Mustafizur Rahman, Steve Smith, Moeen Ali, Harbhajan Singh, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Ankit Rajpoot, Umesh Yadav, Vishnu Solanki

Cummins went wicketless in the PowerPlay in 10 off the 14 league games last year.
Cummins went wicketless in the PowerPlay in 10 off the 14 league games last year.
Kolkata Knight Riders

Purse: INR 10.75 cr || Slots left: 8 || Overseas slots left: 2

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tim Seifert (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh

Finishers: Dinesh Karthik (wk), Eoin Morgan (c), Andre Russell

All-rounders: Sunil Narine

Spinners: Varun CV, Kuldeep Yadav

Fast bowlers: Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Sandeep Warrier, Prasidh Krishna

Issues & Requirements:

The Knight Riders have a few little issues to address while praying for a healthy season for Andre Russell. However, there is a small problem in that they have the joint-lowest purse for this auction and will need to be very specific and smart with their picks.

- Bowling at either end of the innings has proved to be a bugbear. KKR took just 13 wickets in the PowerPlay in 2020. Pat Cummins, their big-money signing, went wicketless in the PowerPlay in 10 off the 14 league games and also conceded at 11.30 ER in the death. Even Lockie Ferguson is used as a middle-overs enforcer. A reunion with former Knight Umesh Yadav may not be outlandish. He's had two lukewarm seasons but is a good PowerPlay operator in Indian conditions as evidenced in the 2018 season.

- KKR were the slowest scoring side in the PowerPlay (RR 7.11) last season. A lot of it was down to the Narine move tailing off and Gill remaining the only constant in a continuous batting-order shuffle.

- The bowling attack could also do with a little variety. A left-arm seamer and a left-arm orthodox spinners could be useful given Kuldeep Yadav's sporadic appearances. Jason Behrendorff is a PowerPlay specialist and brings the left-arm angle. KKR could also be tempted into re-signing M. Siddarth, who enjoyed a dream Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 final against Baroda.

- A back-up Indian keeper for Dinesh Karthik.

Possible Targets: Jason Behrendorff, Mustafizur Rahman, David Willey, Jhye Richardson, Kyle Jamieson, Umesh Yadav, Ankit Rajpoot, M. Siddarth, Mohammad Azharuddeen, Avi Barot, Sheldon Jackson

RCB were once again heavily reliant on Kohli and de Villiers last season.
RCB were once again heavily reliant on Kohli and de Villiers last season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore

Purse: INR 35.40 cr || Slots left: 11 || Overseas slots left: 3

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Josh Philippe (wk)

Finishers: AB de Villiers (wk), Pavan Deshpande

All-rounders: Washington Sundar, Daniel Sams

Spinners: Yuzvendra Chahal, Adam Zampa, Shahbaz Ahmed

Fast bowlers: Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Kane Richardson, Harshal Patel

Issues & Requirements:

That RCB have opted for a major shake-up in the last year of their cycle and despite coming off a Playoffs finish is a reflection of how some of their old problems have far overstepped the hospitality accorded to them.

- The batting reliance on de Villiers and Kohli for starters remains to be addressed even though Padikkal's breakthrough season was most welcome. RCB struggled with their middle-overs batting last season scoring at a league-low 6.93 between overs 7-15. A middle-overs enforcer with the bat to ease the load will be most welcome. Glenn Maxwell, at his best, would appear to be an ideal fit. Although, if RCB get dragged into a big money bidding war for him, they could be left with little to fix the other deficiencies in the squad.

- Chris Morris had a good season with the ball and RCB could try to get the South African back at a much lower price than the INR 10 cr they forked out for him last year although Daniel Sams with his batting sparks can play that role if his injury troubles stay away. It is to be noted, however, that Sams didn't pick any wickets in IPL 2020. RCB also need a back-up for Kane Richardson for bowling at the death, a persistent bone of contention for the Chinnaswamy-based franchise.

- A back-up Indian wicket-keeper batsman as replacement for the now-retired Parthiv Patel given de Villiers' back concerns and the skewed balance playing a foreign keeper in Philippe could create. RCB will also need an Indian middle-order batsman having let go of Shivam Dube although there are few options available to fill that role.

Possible Targets: Glenn Maxwell, Shakib Al Hasan, Steve Smith, Daniel Christian, Chris Morris, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kyle Jamieson, Mustafizur Rahman, Shahrukh Khan, Shivam Dube, Mohammed Azharuddeen, Sheldon Jackson, Avi Barot, Vishnu Solanki

SRH might target one overseas quick bowler in the auction.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Purse: INR 10.75 cr || Slots left: 3 || Overseas slots left: 1

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: David Warner (c), Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Sreevats Goswami (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Priyam Garg

Finishers: Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Virat Singh

All-rounders: Mitchell Marsh, Jason Holder, Mohammad Nabi

Spinners: Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem

Fast bowlers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul, Basil Thampi

Issues & Requirements:

After another run into the Playoffs, their fifth on the bounce, SRH need little in the form of reinforcement as evidenced by their 22-man retention list. They also have only INR 10.75 cr in the kitty and will mostly spectate at the auction except when a player that fits specific requirements comes calling.

- Death-overs batting has been a concern for SRH. Over the last three editions, they've scored only at 8.89, 9.62 and 8.96 and have lost 40+ wickets each time in this phase. There is also a tendency to collapse in routine chases as was seen twice last year (vs RCB & KXIP). Mitchell Marsh, who had a good BBL season, and Jason Holder who filled in for him admirably are options alongside Indian youngsters. SRH won't say no to someone with more gravitas, Indian or overseas.

- While they have an army of fast bowlers, none of them are tear-away quick with Billy Stanlake now released. One quick bowler may be up for grabs

Possible Targets: Riley Meredith, Mark Wood, Oshane Thomas, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Matt Henry, Shivam Dube, Kedar Jadhav

DC will be looking at more firepower at the death to aid Pant.

Delhi Capitals

Purse: INR 13.40 cr || Slots left: 8 || Overseas slots left: 3

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (c)

Finishers: Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer

All-rounders: Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes

Spinners: R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Lalit Yadav, Pravin Dubey

Fast bowlers: Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

Issues & Requirements:

Delhi Capitals will be most wary of the scheduled South Africa home series against Pakistan. Their bowling unit revolves around two South African quicks who were an integral part to their run to the final last year. For if they miss a significant portion of the start of the IPL (in keeping with quarantine guidelines), their plans are likely to be hit badly.

- DC seamers, despite picking 72 wickets last season, took just 13 in the PowerPlay. In Ishant's absence, the back-up seamer (Sams, Tushar Deshpande, Harshal Patel) struggled for Delhi, conceding at 10.53.

- They also need a back-up Indian wicket-keeper. They had to change their team balance when Pant was injured last season. Alex Carey too has been released.

- Despite their strong core of Indian top-order batsmen, DC struggled with their opening combinations with Shaw and Rahane unable to find their mojo. That meant Marcus Stoinis moved up the order. If Stoinis remains as opener, Delhi will need a back-up finisher given their very modest death-overs scoring rate of 9.53 - second-lowest after SRH.

Possible Targets: Umesh Yadav, Ankit Rajpoot, Lukman Meriwala, Chetan Sakariya, Mohit Sharma, Daniel Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Morris, Mohammed Azharuddeen, Avi Barot, Sheldon Jackson

A spinner and an overseas seamer will be on MI's agenda.

Mumbai Indians

Purse: INR 15.35 cr || Slots left: 7 || Overseas slots left: 4

Existing squad breakdown:

Top-order batsmen: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Lynn, Saurabh Tiwary, Anmolpreet Singh, Aditya Tare (wk)

Finishers: Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya

All-rounders: Krunal Pandya

Spinners: Rahul Chahar, Anukul Roy, Jayant Yadav

Fast bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Dhawal Kulkarni, Mohsin Khan

Issues & Requirements:

On paper, the champions have their first 11 nailed down. That said, given their constant need for improvement, specific areas will need a tune-up.

- Krunal Pandya's batting returns have dwindled over the last two seasons and his spin pairing with Rahul Chahar hasn't always worked, with the duo conceding at ER 8.11 in the middle-overs last season - most expensive in the league. A spinner will most certainly be on MI's mind.

- Having let go of James Pattinson and Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mumbai will look to get an overseas seamer back, possibly even Coulter-Nile again at a lower price than the INR 8cr they paid for him last year. A backup for Boult.

- An overseas all-rounder as backup for Kieron Pollard.

Possible Targets: Piyush Chawla, Jhye Richardson, Daniel Christian, Moeen Ali, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Curran, Ben Cutting, Shivam Dube, Harbhajan Singh

Players to watch out for 2021 IPL

Players to watch out for at the IPL 2021 Auction

February 17 2021 by Kritika Naidu

Will Maxwell spark another big bidding war despite a lukewarm IPL 2020 season?
Glenn Maxwell(Base Price: INR 2 Crores)

Maxwell's reputation of being a game changer precedes his IPL stats on auction days. Barring a couple of seasons where he was ultra successful, he has been rather cold in the IPL. He, however, still attracts big bids due to the sheer power he possesses to take games away from the opposition in a matter of time, as was seen in the limited-overs series when India had toured Australia. Maxwell had had a horror season in 2020 for Kings XI Punjab, where he didn't even hit a six. In the series against India following the IPL, he was a different batsman. A decent Big Bash 2020-21 followed where he scored 379 at a strike rate of 143.56 and picked seven wickets. Although released from KXIP, now Punjab Kings, he will be subject of bids from a couple of franchises.

Steve Smith(Base Price: INR 2 Crores)

Released by Rajasthan Royals after an underwhelming season, where he was the captain of the team, Steve Smith has made a rather strong case for himself ahead of the auction. He smashed a sensational century for New South Wales against Victoria in the 2021 Marsh One-Day Cup. Although he had a poor 2020 IPL season, he 'found his hands' and reeled off back-to-back 62-ball ODI hundreds against India. Coupled with his experience and his ability to switch gears across formats makes him a good middle -order buy for teams looking to bolster that aspect of their squad.

Aaron Finch(Base Price: INR 1 Crore)

The Australian limited-overs captain has played for as many as eight IPL franchises. After an underwhelming performance in 2020, he was released by RCB. At a base price of INR 1 crore, some franchises though could be interested in him. Like CSK for example, who will be looking for a replacement for Shane Watson at the top. Although Finch's IPL career has been average, his wealth of experience, along with being a gun international player could have him cause some bidding wars. That said, he's had a lean BBL with just 179 runs at 13.76, striking at just over 113...

Kyle Jamieson(Base Price: INR 75 Lakhs)

The New Zealand quick has grabbed eyeballs and has forced his way into the spotlight after some consistent match-winning performances in international cricket. In the six Tests he's played so far, Jamieson has 36 wickets at spectacular average of 13.27, striking at 33.3. Add to that his prowess with the bat, and he is a handy buy for any team that's looking for a tall strike bowler who can double-up as a lower-order biffer.

Alex Hales(Base Price: INR 1.5 Crores)

The top-run getter in this Big Bash League -- 543 runs at 161.6 SR -- is likely to have teams interested given his success in Australia. Hales scored a century and three half-centuries in the league, hitting as many as 30 sixes and 54 boundaries throughout the tournament, putting him back into the spotlight for an England recall. It could see a drastic shift of fortunes for Hales, who was part of the 2019 auction, but remained unsold.

Dawid Malan(Base Price: INR 1.5 Crores)

He's ranked the No.1 batsman in T20I cricket in ICC's rankings, and for good reason. His reputation as one of the best batsmen in T20I cricket is not for nothing; in 19 T20Is, Malan has 855 runs, averaging 53.43 at a brilliant strike-rate of 149.47, with nine scores of 50-plus and century. In the recently-concluded Big Bash League, for the Hobart Hurricanes, he had an ordinary season, with 265 runs averaging 26.50. The brilliant top-order batsman could have a number of takers, however as with many of the overseas batsmen who contribute in just one discipline, ability against quality spin on Indian surfaces comes as a constant deterrent for teams.

Shakib Al Hasan(Base Price: INR 2 Crores)

Shakib's return after his one-year ban hasn't been a bed of roses, given that he has been afflicted by injuries after rediscovering his touch with both bat and ball. However, there's little question when it comes to his ability across formats, which makes him such an important buy for franchises given his all-round abilities. That apart, his vast experience of playing in leagues and having been an integral part of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders in the past, any teams looking for a reliable all-rounder to bat in the middle order will have their eyes on Shakib. They will, however, keep a close eye on Bangladesh's international assignments, with players unlikely to stay on post May 19.

Mustafizur Rahman(Base Price: INR 1 crore)

He played a vital role in Sunrisers Hyderabad's winning campaign in 2016 with his astute variations foxing batsmen across franchises. A left-arm pacer with proclivity for bowling in the death adds significant heft to T20 sides. He missed out on the 2020 season despite being approached by Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders due to the non-issuance of an NOC from the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

Jhye Richardson(Base Price: INR 1.5 Crores)

He's one of those T20 bowlers who not just strikes regularly, but also doesn't concede too many runs. He formed a great partnership with left-armer Jason Behrendorff (Base Price: INR 1 Crore) and finished as the top wicket-taker in the BBL this season with 29 wickets, averaging 16.31. His economy rate of under 8 (7.69) would be perfect for any franchise looking to bolster their PowerPlay bowling. It would be a debut call-up for the pace bowler who helped his side Perth Scorchers into the final.

Shivam Dube was released by RCB after scoring only 129 runs from 11 games in IPL 2020

Lukman Meriwala(Base Price: INR 20 Lakhs)

The left-arm pacer from Baroda pushed his case for an IPL contract after playing an integral role in his side's progress to the final of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Baroda may have lost the final to Tamil Nadu, but Meriwala finished second on the bowling charts with 15 wickets in eight matches. Generating pace and bounce consistently, he recorded his best figures of 5-8 against Chattisgarh. Adding to that his use of variations may spark some interest in franchises to load their Indian bowlers' strength.

Mohammed Azharuddeen(Base Price: INR 20 Lakhs)

A record-breaking 137 for Kerala propelled Mohammed Azharuddeen into the limelight. He became an overnight sensation as he destroyed Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy fixture with that outstanding century that was the highest T20 score by an Indian in a chase. He finished the tournament with 214 runs from five innings, and struck at the right time, just ahead of the IPL auction. His batsmanship and dynamic strokeplay coupled with his ability to double up as a wicket-keeper will attract suitors.

Shivam Dube(Base Price: INR 50 Lakhs)

As seen with RCB last year, Dube brings more than just big-hitting to the side. He's a handy bowler who has the ability to land timely strikes. However, he had an ordinary season in terms of numbers which could've played a part in RCB deciding to let him go for the upcoming season despite the all-round skills he brings to the table. A lot of franchises will be eyeing him given his strength as a finisher, especially with a base price of just 50 lakhs.

Shahrukh Khan(Base Price: INR 20 Lakhs)

A broad-shouldered domestic finisher - like Shahrukh Khan - should be high on the agenda for quite a few franchises. He's highly rated in the Tamil Nadu camp, and essayed the role of a finisher with aplomb over the last two seasons. Despite not getting to bat in a quality Tamil Nadu line-up, he gave a glimpse of his abilities in a crucial quarterfinal fixture against Himachal Pradesh, slamming an unbeaten 19-ball 40 after TN were reduced to 66/5 in a tense chase.
