However 11th April is the tentative date to start IPL 2021. The series against England finishes in March and players will get a good break with the 11th April start for IPL 14th. But the official date is not yet announced.

What Happens to the Unsold Players after the Auctions?
If a player goes unsold in the first round of IPL Auctions, he might be bought by a team in the subsequent rounds, including the accelerated round.
However, if a player is unsold by the time the Auctions come to an end, it becomes evidently clear that he will not participate in that year’s IPL.
In case one of the players from a team gets injured, an unsold player might still get a chance, but that is seldom the case.
Who Gets the IPL Auction Money?
The player whose contract has been bought for three years by a franchisee gets the amount of the winning bid, each year for the next three years.
For example, if a player is bought in the auction for one Crore, the franchisee pays him one Crore every year for the next three years.
