How to register for IPL auction 2021: The auction for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be held on February 18.
It was over a week ago that the IPL Governing Council had announced that the auction ahead of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be held on February 18 in Chennai.
With less than a couple of weeks remaining for the mini-auction, the reported deadline for Player Auction agreements to be submitted online ended yesterday, i.e., 05:00 PM on February 5 (IST).
It is worth mentioning that players who already have an existing IPL contract or have been traded before the auction can’t register themselves for the auction.
“Please note that this procedure does not apply to any Indian player who has an ongoing IPL Player Contract that may be extended prior to IPL 2021 Player Auction,” IPL COO and interim BCCI CEO Hemang Amin wrote in an email to all the state associations.
