The three-time champions CSK who finished in the seventh position in the IPL 2020, reportedly released a lot of players as they looked to revamp their Dad's Army. Teams like SRH and MI who have mostly retained their core squad will be looking to only solidify them with a few players.

The KXIP, RCB, and KKR, on the other hand, may look to have increased their purse string and will now need strong players to help lift the squad. Ahead of the IPL 2021 player's auction, here is how one can view the event live on Television and on mobile.

IPL 2021 auction: Little known uncapped Indians who can start a bidding war

With the mini-auction ahead of IPL 2021 coming up, here is a look at some uncapped Indian players who can get the cash registers ringing despite not being popular names:

1) Avi Barot: Base Price - 20 lakh: The 28-year-old Saurashtra batsman is expected to be on the must-get list of several teams after his exploits in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He smashed 32 boundaries and 12 sixes in 5 innings at a strike-rate of 185. He scored a century and a half-century to end with 283 runs in the tournament.

2) Rahul Gahlaut: Base Price - 20 lakh: The Services batsman lit up Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy with his consistent show too. 244 runs at a strike-rate of 177 with three half-centuries means he will be a good catch for teams looking to add valuable uncapped Indian players to their side.

3) Mohammed Azharuddeen: Base Price - 20 lakh: The Kerala batsman's unbeaten knock of 137 is the kind of innings that holds the potential of creating an instant impact. He didn't do much in the remaining 4 innings in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, but in that innings, he showcased his full range of strokes and that has definitely turned the head of many scouts in IPL, Hindustan Times cites.

4) Chetan Sakariya: Base Price - 20 lakh: The 23-year-old left-arm paceman from Saurashtra picked up 12 wickets from 5 matches at a brilliant economy of 4.9. Teams often look for left-arm pacers for variety and Sakariya could fit into the plans of some franchise as a back-up Indian pace option.

5) Kedar Devdhar: Base Price - 20 lakh: At 31, Devdhar is not a youngster anymore but 349 runs in 8 matches in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy could well prove to be his lucky year when someone picks him in the auction. His strike-rate is an issue but Devdhar's consistency this season should be rewarded with a contract.
