The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to take place in its regular window between April and May. The previous season of the cash-rich league was postponed and as a result, the authorities had very little time to prepare for 2021 edition. However, everything is hunky-dory now as the league will start in April. A mini-auction is going to be held prior to the league. Inside are the details of the IPL Auction 2021 Broadcasting Channel.
The tournament has enjoyed a great fan base ever since its inception in 2008. The craze of nail-biting matches has only soared with every passing year. Earlier, all the franchises released players who didn’t live up to the expectations of the team while retaining their core players. The auction will decide the fate of the 292 players who have been shortlisted from a long list of over 1000 sportsmen.
Previously, BCCI was planning to take the tournament overseas this year as well. However, the improvement in the situation in India has made it almost certain that the league will be played in India only. The 2020 edition of the league had to be taken abroad (UAEA) owing to the inappropriate conditions in the country due to Coronavirus.
