IPL 2020 has made all the franchises very much aware of the abilities in their squads.

The franchises were anticipating a mega auction in the near future to give a new look to their squads.
Nonetheless, there were reports that the mega auction which was booked to occur before IPL 2021 is probably going to be rejected because of COVID-19. Despite the fact that no official declaration was made, Sourav Ganguly revealed that BCCI is yet to decide whether there will be a mini or mega auction for 2021.
