IPL auction 2021 new player list: BCCI have shortlisted 292 out of the originally registered 1,114 players for IPL 2021 auction.
BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) have shortlisted 292 out of the originally registered 1,114 players for Indian Premier League 2021 auction scheduled to happen on February 18 in Chennai. Out of the 292 shortlisted players, 164 are Indian, 125 are overseas and the remaining three players belong to Associate Nations.
As many as 113 capped players have registered under five price categories namely INR 2 crore (two Indian and eight overseas), INR 1.5 crore (12 overseas), INR 1 crore (two Indian and nine overseas), INR 75 lakh (15 overseas) and INR 50 lakh (13 Indian and 52 overseas).
With a mammoth 822 players left out of the auction, some prominent names have also missed out on a chance to go under the hammer next week. Veteran India fast bowler Sreesanth, who had most recently made a comeback in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, had registered himself with a base price of INR 75 lakh but hasn’t been shortlisted for the auction.
