There will be competition for Sreesanth
It may be interesting to see the bidding on Sreesanth in the 14th season auction of IPL. Sreesanth is among 1097 players who have registered their names for auction. After the ban was lifted, Sreesanth was playing for Kerala in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. However, he could not do anything special in this T20 tournament. Despite this, given the aggressive approach of Sreesanth, teams can compete to buy him.
Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc has not registered his name for IPL 2021. The reason for this may be his injury. If Starc had participated in the 14th season of the IPL, he could have a big stake.
