IPL Auction 2021 News Live Updates: Kings XI Punjab are the latest IPL franchise to go for a change in their Team Name – the franchise has never won the IPL and will hope that a change in name to Punjab Kings will also bring a change in fortunes for them. Kings XI Punjab were looking to change their name for some time before finally finalising it ahead of the 14th edition of the coveted league set to begin in early April.

Some Indian names to watch out for? — Shivam Dube (allrounder), Shahrukh Khan (batsmen – Tamil Nadu), Mohammed Azharuddeen (batsman – Kerala), Lukman Meriwala (pacer – Baroda), Vishnu Solanki (batsman – Baroda), Siddharth Manimaran (bowler – Tamil Nadu). And of course, Harbhajan Singh, Umesh Yadav and Kedar Jadhav.

A total of 164 Indian players, 125 overseas players and three players from Associate Nations will be up for grabs in the auction. INR 2 Crore is the highest base prize with Kedar Jadhav and Harbhajan Singh enlisting under it. Besides them, eight overseas players – Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Shakib Al Hasan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy & Mark Wood have chosen to be slotted in the highest bracket as well.

There are a lot of big and important people at the auctions – from team owners ranging from industrialists, film stars and politicians to strategists, ex-players, famous coaches and analysts. But amongst all these the person who is the master of the show, on whose shoulders lies the responsibility of carrying out the auctions and calling out the several hundred names one after the other patiently but firmly, is the auctioneer. So who is the auctioneer for the 2021 Auctions?

One of the more unknown players who has gotten shortlisted this time around is Khrievitso Kense from Nagaland, a leg-spinner by trade who impressed for the state side during this year’s Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.His journey to becoming a professional cricketer started at age 7, when he played tennis ball cricket with friends.

He further said that he doesn’t see too much of chopping and changing in the team setup. “So, probably there could be an all-rounder and plus an overseas batter, because there are two overseas batters normally who open for CSK. There’s not going to be too many changes to be honest. Most importantly, they should have a smaller squad, because this is only an auction for one season. After this season, there’s going to be a bigger auction. So, I don’t think CSK will have an overall revamp.”
