An Indian Premier League (IPL) player auction is known for two things -- money and talent. The first IPL auction after the Covid lockdown has had plenty of both.

Glenn Maxwell's price again raised eye brows, Chris Morris forced franchises to break the bank and Indian fans will be vociferously googling Riley Meredith's credentials while trying to figure out how Jhye Richardson swooped a nearly 2 million dollar deal.

This 2021 auction was about multi-skilled players, who can fit in anywhere.
