The players are to have a sapphire in Chennai before the 14th season of the Indian Premier League is held. On February 18, all eight franchise teams will participate in the IPL mini-auction. Some players released this year are finding it difficult to sell at an auction. Two Indian players are also included in this list.
40-year-old Indian veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh did not play for personal reasons last season. He played for Chennai Super Kings in the last two seasons, but for this season he himself requested to release the team. In Bhajji’s bowling, he is no longer an edge and neither is he active on the cricket field, so hardly any team will show interest in buying him.
Murali Vijay, playing for Chennai Super Kings, has been released for auction by the team. In 2016, Murali Vijay scored 453 runs for Kings XI Punjab, since then he has not done much. In 2017, he did not get to play a single match while in 2018 he played just one match. In 2019, Murali played only 3 matches in 2020. He did not even play in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Combining all these things, it is difficult to sell them at auction this time.
Karun Nair has also failed in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, having failed to reach the score of 50 in the last 10 T20 innings. His highest score is 27 runs and on the basis of this score, hardly any team in the IPL auction showed interest in joining them. Karun, who played for Kings XI Punjab, played 4 matches this season, while last season he got the opportunity to play only 1 match.
This batsman has caught everyone’s attention by playing a sharp half-century in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy before the IPL auction. The team has decided to release Jadhav, who has been long associated with the Chennai team due to injury and poor form. It seems unlikely that the 35-year-old player will be interested in this auction.
