IPL 2021 Auction — RR’s auction strategy: With the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 auctions just weeks away, all the franchises are busy making strategies to strengthen their squads. The auction will take place on February 18 in Chennai. And while they are busy making plans, fans are also busy giving their favourite teams suggestions on social media.
Twitter has been flooded with advices from fans about who they should sign at the auction. Some fans have also been busy asking the franchises about the players they would like to buy in the auction.
Recently a fan sent a query Rajasthan Royals’ way. It all started when the inaugural IPL champions took to Twitter, sharing pictures of their star pacer Jofra Archer training in Chennai for the upcoming series against India. Sensing an opportunity to get his query cleared, the fan wrote: “What do you think who will you pick in the auction??,” sharing a picture of Herman Baweja from 2009 Bollywood movie Victory.
To this RR, which has been quite active on social media, responded by saying, “Seems tough but we’ll try our best to get this firepower”.
RR have released Steve Smith and named Sanju Samson their new captain. The Royals would be desperately hoping that a change in captaincy would also change their fortunes.
