Finally, the IPL 2021 Mini-Auction date and venue has announced by BCCI on Wednesday. As per latest updates, IPL 2021 Mini Auction will be held in Chennai on 18 February 2021.
Due to Covid-19 impact, it will not be a mega auction. So the teams have retained their best players and released a few players whom are not their first choice or did not performed last year.
The two best teams in IPL, CSK and MI have retained their core group of players. Similarly the franchaises also retained 10-15 best players from last season. CSK and RCB already traded Robin Uthappa from RR and Daniel Sams, Harshal Patel from DC.

There are few big names will take place in this IPL 2021 mini auction. The players are Steven Smith, Gleen Maxwell, Mitchel Sterc, Kedar Jadhav, Jason Roy. Most probably no 1 T20I Batsman David Malan will be available in IPL 2021 Mini Auction. And in my opinion, he will be one of the biggest purchase in IPL 2021 Mini Auction.
IPL teams have released a few international players from their team compared to the last season. Steven Smith, Gleen Maxwell, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Murli Vijay, Lasith Malinga, Parthiv Patel are some of them.
