Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: The fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is fast approaching and the franchisee must prepare for the mega event. The 2021 IPL auction is scheduled for February 18 in Chennai and the teams will surely try to add courage to their team with the new talent.
Although there is a part of the franchise that can lead to the next Indian Premier League season without participating in the 2021 IPL auction if necessary. Here in this article, we are going to take a look at 3 teams that can head to IPL 2021 without any purchases in IPL 2021 auctions.
3 teams that can move towards IPL 2021 without any auction purchase:
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR):
Even though the Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise had a horrendous Indian Premier League season last time around, it still has one of the biggest arsenals around. The two-time champions had to do a lot of swapping and combining to qualify for the playoffs last year, however, they’ve been a team whose middle order is intimidating for the rest of the franchise.
KKR only released Chris Green, Nikhil Naik, Siddhesh Lad, Manimaran Siddharth and Harry Gurney and kept the international stars with them even though they underperformed last season.
With Eoin Morgan, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Andree Russell in their middle order, they form an explosive core that can crush any target. Shubman Gill and Varun Chakravarthy are their young talents who can surprise any party with their tricks.
Without a doubt, they can head to the 2021 IPL without any purchase at the February 18 auction.
Capitals of Delhi (DC):
The aggressive and talented team led by Shreyas Iyer had a breakout season last time around as they reached the top of the IPL. DC remained a step behind the IPL title, however, reaching the final was history for them.
Along with Prithwi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajiinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyre and Marcus Stoinis, DC is a formidable team. Including Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ravichandran Ashwin and Axer Patel at the bowling alley, they get even stronger.
DC has only released six players from their squad ahead of the 2021 IPL and will feel strong even if they don’t get a quality pick at auction.
Indians of Mumbai (MI):
The most successful franchise and five-time champion is one of the teams that remains the all-time favorite to win any tournament. Rohit Sharma has led the IPL Lateral Trophy five times.
The Mumbai Indians have retained all the key players including Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah and the list goes on.
Without a doubt, they are still the favorites to win the IPL 2021 with world class cricketers.
MI released seven players ahead of the 2021 IPL mini-auctions and the team will be happy without the auctions.
