Full-team IPL auction 2021: Eight franchises spent a total of INR 145.3 crore to buy 57 players for IPL’s 14th season.
As expected, the Indian Premier League 14th season auction was life-changing for many Indian and foreign cricketers, with eight franchises spending a total of INR 145.3 crore to buy 57 players.
If the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals had purchased three and one more player respectively, a rare case of every 200 filled slots would have occurred. Apart from the Royal Challengers (22) and Royals (24), all of the remaining teams made up a full squad of 25 players each.
