Former India fast bowler S Sreesanth has not been shortlisted by any of the eight IPL teams for the forthcoming mini-auction. The 38-year-old made his comeback in January after serving a seven-year ban for suspected role in IPL 2013 spot-fixing scandal.

Initially, the fast bowler was sentenced to a life ban after being arrested in a hotel with Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan on suspicion of spot-fixing.

Later in March 2019, the Supreme Court of India set aside the life-ban and BCCI reduced it to a seven year sentence.

The BCCI recently declared a preselected list of 292 players who will go under the hammer at the mini-auction.

Cheteshwar Pujara made the shortlist for IPL Mini-Auction

Arjun Tendulkar is also eligible for the auction after making his debut for Mumbai in the just concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The young bowler is available at a base price of Rs 20 lakh.

Cheteshwar Pujara also made the shortlist for the forthcoming IPL 2021 Mini Auction. The batsman will be available for a base price of Rs 50 Lakh. Pujara last featured in the Indian Premier League seven years back. In the recent past, franchises have overlooked the India batsman, and he was happy to focus on county stints. However, he once again registered his name in the mix for IPL 2021. Pujara played for Kings XI Punjab, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Kolkata Knight Riders.
