With the IPL 2021 auction nearing, Rajasthan Royals (RR) like other franchises is gearing up for the auction which takes place on February 18. RR’s team management made some huge moves on the retention day by releasing heir captain Steven Smith.
Apart from Smith, RR released seven players making it hard for the team during the auction. While RR has struggled over the past seasons, their Twitter admin has been in full form for a couple of years now. On January 31, RR once again left the fans laughing with their comic response.
When asked about their strategy this auction by a user, RR shared the picture of Bollywood actor Harman Baweja from his movie Victory and wrote they would buy him. Victory is a cricket-centric movie released in 2009.

Often trolled by users, this was just another occasion of RR winning the internet with their response. Ahead of the retention day instead of announcing the list of released players, they announced that RR’s admin had been retained for the next season.
Kumar Sangakkara, coach of RR will have a tough task during the auctions as the team requires 3-4 pacers and a couple of all-rounders. Sanju Samson who had joined RR in 2013 will be captaining the team in IPL 2021.
