IPL Auction 2021 came up with a lot of talking points in Chennai on Thursday with South African all-rounder Chris Morris becoming the most expensive buy in the IPL auction history.

The 33-year-old’s big payday at Rajasthan Royals for Rs 16.25 crore came after another all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell, once again managed to attract a winning Rs 14.25 crore bid from Royal Challengers Bangalore. New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson also joined Virat Kohli’s team for Rs 15 crore.

Punjab Kings, who went into the auction with the maximum purse among eight teams, paid Rs 14 crore to rope in Australian pacer Jhye Richardson hoping he will plug the gap in their leaking bowling department.

Among the players who went unsold were Hanuma Vihari, Marnus Labuschagne, Jason Roy, Adil Rashid, and Aaron Finch.
