January 20 last date to submit list of retained players

The 2021 IPL auction is likely to be held on February 11. The IPL has also set January 20 as the deadline for the eight franchises to submit the lists of retained and released players.

Those were two of the key decisions taken by the IPL Governing Council which met virtually on Monday. The dates and venue(s) haven’t been finalised yet for the 2021 edition which the BCCI recently decided would remain an eight-team event.

The venue for the auction, which will be a day-long event, has not been finalised yet either. However, it will take place in the short break between the first and the second Test of the India-England Test series which begins in February. The first two Tests of the England series are scheduled in Chennai with the first match to be played between February 5-9. The second Test will run from 13th to 17th.
