Total 130 players went under the hammer at the IPL 2021 Auction, out of which 73 players remained unsold.
The auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw 57 players getting picked from the pool of 298 players before the start of the cash-rich tournament in the month of April. Total 130 players went under the hammer, out of which 73 players remained unsold.
From breaking the record of being the most expensive player in the history of the auction to one of the captains of an international side not finding any takers, the 2021 IPL player auction saw it all. While the bowlers and the all-rounders were in huge demand, the batsmen had an off day, either they went for their base prices or were not even picked.
There were a lot of big and important people at the auctions, ranging from team owners – industrialists, film stars and politicians – to strategists, ex-players, coaches and even analysts.
So while fans knew most of the people present at the auction, one girl grabbed the attention of many. Sitting beside VVS Laxman at the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) table, was Kaviya Maran.
So who is Kaviya Maran and what was she doing at the auction table of SRH?
