IPL 2021 is approaching soon, and cricket fans cannot hold their excitement to watch their favorite players on the ground. Indian Premier League is one of the most famous and loved domestic tournaments hosted by BCCI. As per the IPL 2021 news, Chris Morris was the biggest buyout in IPL 2021 auction for 16.25 crore. The eight franchises spent a whopping amount of money to include talented players in their roster. Some of the players in the IPL 2021 auction were purchased for a higher bid amount. There are some key players who will hold the hopes and dreams of a million cricket fans. The five beloved players to watch out in IPL 2021 are:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings)
Chennai Super Kings is undoubtedly one of the IPL’s best team. MS Dhoni did not have an amazing stat in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League. The skipper just scored 200 runs in 14 matches. Also, even being the strongest team of IPL, CSK was not able to make space in the playoffs. However, several videos surfaced on the internet where MS Dhoni was seen practicing on the field with various bowlers. We all know the capabilities of the former Indian captain. Once Dhoni gets his rhythm back, he will be one of the best performers in the IPL 2021 all team squad of CSK.
Glen Maxwell (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Glen Maxell is one of the ruthless batters on the Australian team. He was sold out for 14.25 crore to Royal Challengers Bangalore. Maxwell did not live out to the expectation of his former franchise Kings XI Punjab who purchased him for nearly 10 crores. He just scored 108 runs in 13 matches in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League. However, Glen Maxwell returned to his original form in the Big Bash League by scoring 379 runs in 14 matches. Indian fans, especially Royal Challengers Bangalore fans, will be expecting the ruthless batting form of Maxwell in IPL 2021 to aid the franchisee in bagging the first IPL trophy.
Prithvi Shaw (Delhi Capitals)
Prithvi Shaw is one of the rising talented players in the Indian roster. However, the 2020 edition of the Indian premier league was disappointing for the newcomer. He started his journey strong in the beginning but lost the momentum as the tournament progressed. He was dropped out by playing XI. Even though Shaw had a roller coaster ride in IPL, he was retained by Delhi Capitals for IPL 2021. Shaw’s recent performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy surprised everyone. Shaw was the highest scorer in the tournament, with 837 runs in just eight matches. Delhi Capital fans will be expecting the same performance by the youngster in IPL 2021.
Ravindra Jadeja (Chennai Super Kings)
Ravindra Jadeja is one of the beloved players of the CSK roster. Whenever CSK faced difficulty in getting wickets or scoring runs, he dived in for the rescue and contributed his part. Recently, Jadeja was one of the key players of India in the Border Gavaskar Series 2020-21. Also, his impressive fielding skills are known around the globe. Jadeja will be one of the key players to watch out for in IPL 2021.
Kuldeep Yadav was trending among the IPL 2021 auction as fans were confused with a similar name. Even though Kuldeep Yadav was retained by his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders, cricket fans thought that he was purchase by Rajasthan Royals. However, Rajasthan Royals purchased Kuldip Yadav instead of the Indian spinner. The star spinner of India had a disappointing performance in IPL 2020. He just bagged one wicket in 5 matches. However, Kuldeep is one of the talented players who have experience of taking wickets in difficult times. He will be one of the crucial players to watch out in IPL 2021.
