The Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2021 auction, a three-day affair, kicked off on August 29 in Mumbai ahead of the eighth season which is scheduled to start in December. After only four players were bought by franchises on Day 1, things are expected to get quite exciting on Monday. Day 2will see domestic and foreign players from Category A going under the hammer in the mega auction.
The 12 teams had collectively released 161 players ahead of the new season. The three-day auction will give the participating teams a good opportunity to build their respective squads for the upcoming PKL 2021 tournament. Most of the released players have been added to the auction pool, which also has additions in the form of new young players and those from the domestic field. Each franchise has a limit of Rs 4.4 crore to make up their squads, they can also avail a maximum of two Final Bid Match cards, however, that depends on the number of players the team has retained.
The auction proceedings on Day 2 will see 33 players from Category A under the spotlight. They have been divided into three groups – All-rounder, Raider and Defender. With some extremely talented players like Pardeep Narwal, Ajay Thakur, Rahul Chaudhari and Monu Goyat up for grabs, bidding on Day 2 is expected to be fierce.
