IPL Auction 2021 Live Telecast Channel: The SportsRush brings you the schedule and details for the live broadcast of the IPL 2021 auction.
The auction for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League will take place in Chennai tomorrow, February 18th. While the auction is a mini-auction, expect some teams to go into bidding wars for some top notch names in T20 cricket.
Given its history, expect IPL auction day 2021 to be life-changing for many Indian and foreign players, as franchises are very likely to raise the stakes when it comes to their financial prowess. Fans should also be prepared for some not-so-smart decisions because that’s another aspect that the history of IPL auctions has taught us.
All some franchises need to do is make sure they cover the gaps with their armor. However, there are others who have a lot of work to do with a large sum under their belt.
