IPL Auction 2021 In February | Everything You Need To Know About CSK in IPL Auction 2021

India is the home of various cultures and a highly diverse population. Despite the differences, all unite when it comes to our favourite sport.

Cricket is the seven-letter word that brings the nation to a halt and gives joy to every heart alike. All year round, we wait for the IPL season just like we wait for our own birthdays.

Each year the eight teams fight for the most prestigious championship in the history of cricket, creating memorable moments in a fan's life. All of these teams are undeniably a part of the fans' lives. 








Around the corner is the IPL 2021 auction where all eight IPL teams will disassemble and rebuild themselves for the upcoming season. Although the much-awaited auction is yet to happen in Chennai on February 18, the primary process of releasing and retaining players has already been finalised.
