IPL 2022 Auction: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be without their distinguished coaching staff in the IPL 2022 mega-auction. Due to the IPL’s attendance cap, batting coach Brian Lara and pace-bowling coach Dale Steyn won’t be available in Bengaluru for the auctions on February 12 & 13. Instead, the contingent will be led by head coach Tom Moody.
After Trevor Bayliss stepped down, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) announced a star-studded coaching staff. In IPL 2022, Tom Moody, Brian Lara, Dale Steyn, and Muttiah Muralitharan will shape the future of SRH. However, due to the attendance cap imposed by COVID-19 regulations, not all will be able to attend the auction. Get the IPL results here.
“The presence cap would certainly not allow any franchise with all the expertise to go into the auction. Tom will be there for us, and we hope Murali will be able to join us. Dale and Lara, on the other hand, will be available by phone”.Close source to SRH told insidesport
Prior to the mega-auction, SRH retained only three players. Kane Williamson will remain captain, while SRH has decided to keep Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. SRH will have to go at the auction without David Warner and Rashid Khan. They have Rs 68 crore to work with and will need to draft 21 players.
IPL 2022 Auction: 10 Rules to follow in the Mega-Auction
- The IPL 2022 auctions will be held in a bio-bubble.
- On February 9, 10, and 11, officials representing the franchises are asked to clear COVID tests with a negative RT-PCR report.
- The testing will be carried out by a BCCI-accredited medical facility.
- In the auction, there will be no Right to Match (RTM) option. Unlike previous IPL editions, no teams can keep their old players with final calls.
- It will pose a threat to the core of the Mumbai Indians (MI), Delhi Capitals (DC), and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), to name a few. As a result, all of the teams are likely to undergo significant changes.
- The purse for the IPL 2022 has been increased from Rs 80 crore to Rs 90 crore in order to accommodate more players, particularly from the domestic arena.
- Participants who have returned to India from overseas tours within the last 15 days will be subjected to a 7-day mandatory quarantine and must test negative on Days 8 and 9. (twice). Hence, foreign team representatives have already arrived in Bio-bubble in Bengaluru.
- The BCCI will keep a close eye on those arriving at the team hotel on February 11. They will be watched for signs of COVID-19.
- The testing will take place between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m. to ensure a smooth run of the IPL 2022 Auction on February 12-13. The members will remain in their rooms until they are declared virus-free.
With the addition of the Ahmedabad and Lucknow franchises, the auction will feature as many as ten teams. The auction will take place in a strict bio-secure bubble in the midst of the country’s challenging COVID-19 scenarios.
