With less than a week left for the IPL auction 2021, the franchises have shortlisted a total of 292 players who will go under the hammer. Earlier, 1,114 players had registered themselves for the auction and the franchises trimmed down the list of 292 players. These 292 players include 164 Indians and 125 foreign players.

According to India's cricket board (BCCI), a total of 10 players -- eight overseas and two Indian -- have chosen to be slotted in the highest bracket of the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction with a base price of INR two crores. Harbhajan Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Shakib Al Hasan, Moin Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy and Mark Wood are the top players.

India's Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara has also been chosen for the IPL auction, with his base price of INR 50 lakh. Pujara's last IPL appearance came way back in 2014 and since then he has been putting his name on the auction list but has failed to attract any interest. Similarly, former India international and Kerala pacer S Sreesanth who had reportedly registered his name for the IPL 2021 Play Auction to be held on February 18 in Chennai had failed to make the cut.

Moreover, Arjun Tendulkar, the 21-year-old son of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, also made it to the shortlisted players in the all-rounder's category at a base price of Rs 20 lakh. Arjun made his T20 debut recently in the 2020-21 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He played two matches for Mumbai in the premier domestic T20 tournament and picked up two wickets from two matches, conceding runs at an economy of 9.57.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) go into the IPL auction 2021 with the biggest purse of INR 53.20 crores, with nine available slots, while Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) have the least money in their kitty, with a salary cap of INR 10.75 crores each. Whereas, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has a total of INR 22.70 crores with seven slots available for their team.
