IPL 2021 Auction Rules: Six rules that CSK, MI, RCB, SRH, DC, RR, KXP & KKR will have to follow at IPL 2021 mini-auction
The only big difference between IPL Auctions and IPL Mega Auctions is – before an IPL Mega Auctions each team can retain only five of their players at maximum. However in IPL Auction a.k.a. IPL mini Auctions, there is no limit on the number of players which any particular franchisee could retain.Another difference is that for the IPL Mega Auctions, each team also gets ‘Right to Match’ cards. The RTM card can be used by an IPL team owner to match the winning auction amount for one of their ex-players to buy back that particular player’s contract. In other words if a team has not retained a particular player but who was a part of their last squad and has now been bought by another team, they can use the ‘Right to Match’ card, and buy the player’s contract by matching the winning bid. Every team gets a maximum of three and a minimum of two RTM cards in the Mega Auctions depending on the number of players they have retained using the direct method.
