Eight TNPL squads – Chepauk Super Gillies, Dindigul Dragons, LYCA Kovai Kings, Salem Spartans, iDream Tiruppur Tamizhans, Ruby Trichy Warriors, Nellai Royal Kings and Siechem Madurai Panthers – will be featuring in the 2021 edition. The TNPL 2021 draft was held on June 30, with Spartans, Royals Kings and Tamizhans picking up seven players each in their squads, the most among teams.
The 2021 season will be the fifth year of the tournament, with the event cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All matches will be held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai.
Prominent players such as R Ashwin, Washington Sundar and Varun Chakravarthy are part of the squads, but are unlikely to participate due to international commitments.
