The most awaited event of the year finally took place putting an end to days of anticipation. The event was expected to be grand but didn’t turn out that mega affair. But the franchises have displayed a heavy amount of money splurging to steal the deal in the auction. The Indian T20 League auction observed the franchises spending inordinate sums on unproven, and erratic overseas players to fill voids in their teams. The auction was filled with payment records broken along the way.

Teams like Rajasthan broke the bank to buy the most expensive player, C. Morris for the premium amount of 16.25 Crores. This is the highest bid ever done for any player in the Indian T20 league auction. Among the uncapped players, K. Gowtham made it to the headlines by fetching a mammoth amount of 9.25 crores by team Chennai.

Here’s the squad list of all eight teams after the auction of the 2021 edition of the Indian T20 league.
