The list of replacement players of the IPL 2021 was officially released on Saturday, a day before the much-awaited second leg of the tournament resumes in Dubai with the clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI). Six franchises — Delhi Capitals (DC), Mumbai Indians (MI), Punjab Kings (PBKS), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) — announced the changes that they have made to their respective teams. 

While some of the replacements have already been announced, some were named a day before the resumption of the tournament.
