It would not be wrong to call IPL the biggest league of cricket. Many legends of the world are seen playing in this great battle of cricket. The IPL of the year 2022 is going to be even more exciting and fun. This time two new teams are going to play. At the same time, all the teams will also go through a transition phase in the 2022 season. Players are going to be auctioned for the 15th season. This time the mega auction will be held on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru.
Let us know about the top 5 top players who can be rich in this time’s mega auction.
Australia’s brilliant opener David Warner has been released by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Last two seasons Warner’s bat could not do anything special. Last season, due to his poor form, he was also removed from the captaincy and was also removed from the team, but after that this player is in amazing form. Warner had created panic in the T20 World Cup. Who can forget that innings of 53 runs in 38 balls against New Zealand in the final match. On the basis of his innings, Australia won the T20 World Cup for the first time.
After that he is in amazing form. Warner, who has turned 35 years old, may rain money this time in the IPL auction. This player, who was the ‘Player of the Tournament’ in the T20 World Cup, has scored 5449 runs in 150 IPL matches, as well as made Hyderabad the champion during his captaincy in 2016.
36-year-old Shikhar Dhawan was released from his team by Delhi Capitals, surprising everyone. Whereas the bat of this brave player has ignited the last three IPL seasons. He has scored 521 runs in 2019, 618 in the 2020 season and 587 in 2021. Despite this great performance, he was not even selected in the T20 World Cup, but the reward for his amazing performance can be found in the mega auction of IPL. Due to his experience, many franchises would like to have him in their team.
He can also prove to be a good captain. The biggest problem for Dhawan was his strike rate. He was not able to score runs fast, but his strike rate has also improved a lot in the last three seasons. In 2019, he scored runs at a strike rate of 135.67. His strike rate was 144.73 in 2020 and 124.26 in 2021. In such a situation, the franchisees can fight among themselves in the auction to take this player in their team.
Faf du Plessis
This amazing batsman of South Africa, who has turned 37, has not been retained by Chennai Super Kings. In the season of IPL 2021, this player blew the ball with his bat. He scored 633 runs in 16 matches. The 2020 season was also amazing for this player. He scored 449 runs in 13 matches. During this the strike rate of this player was 140.75. Faf can get the benefit of this stellar performance in the mega auction.
Only the team of Chennai would like to add this player back to their team. Because the performance of this player for the Super Kings for the last three seasons will not be forgotten by Dhoni’s team. Anyway, Mahi believes more in experienced players.
Chennai Super Kings did not retain the most experienced player of their team, Suresh Raina. Last season Raina’s bat did not show anything special, but this player’s IPL record is amazing. Raina, who is 35 years old, has played 205 matches in the IPL and has scored 5528 runs with his bat.
Their experience can be used in the auction. Two new teams Lucknow and Ahmedabad can take him in their team. Raina has a local connection from Lucknow. In such a situation, Raina can also get the benefit of this. Along with batting, Suresh can also bowl. He has also taken 25 wickets in IPL. In such a situation, this thing will also go in his favor during the auction.
Another player of Chennai Super Kings, 38-year-old Dwayne Bravo can also rain money in the IPL auction. The biggest reason for this is his amazing record in IPL so far. The franchise would like to add this bowler, who has bowled brilliantly in the death overs.
Bravo has taken more than 500 wickets in T20 cricket. Talking about IPL, he has taken 167 wickets in 151 matches. Bravo does well with the bat as well. He has also scored 1537 runs in his IPL career.
