The tactics of some franchises were also challenged following the release in the auction pool of players such as Chris Morris and Steve Smith, while others, such as Chris Jordan, Chris Lynn, Andrew Tye, etc.

For the next season, franchises tend to have their plans intact, with a mini-auction. The decision to hold and release those players also appears to be influenced by a mega-auction with 9 or 10 teams in the 2022 IPL season.
