The IPL 2021 auctions broke quite a few records when it came to bidding as the franchises didn’t hold back and splurged to get hold of their top T20 stars.
Twitter was abuzz as Chris Morris and Glenn Maxwell fetched the big money contracts once again alongside Indian uncapped stars K. Gowtham and Shahrukh Khan who made merry on Thursday.
Here are some of the top reactions from the day:
Welcome back to the manic world of T20s, Che Pu
And it’s a stellar entry for the Chennai boy!
Maxwell under the hammer is a sure-shot firecracker
Pretty subtle for the million-dollar man. A fiery trio (VK, ABD says hi) in the making at the Chinnaswamy

The defending champion has little to fret at the auction
Mi always smart at the auction. They got quality fast bowlers as well as Getting Piyush Chawla at reasonable price will fuel good spin department which I thinking was needed. #IPL2021Auction

Unpredictable for so many reasons!

Inexplicable as the auctions are, can RCB’s
I see a lot of you shocked about the price at which the players are going at! Let me break it down. It’s resources (money) which is plenty, supply (good players, very limited) and the demand (role gaps in teams) which is non negotiable. And it’s a 1-year investment. #IPLAuction
