Top 5 IPL 2022 Mega Auction Buys Who Did Well In PSL
1) Tim David
Mumbai Indians made the right decision to buy the Singaporean cricketer Tim David. He came at a cost of 8.25 Crore for the franchise. Tim made headlines while playing for BBL but his performance in PSL was impeccable and this led MI to buy the player.

2) Jason Roy
Gujarat Titans had a disappointing start to the IPL mega auctions. They were lost and were not aware of which player to bid for and which not to. Because of the same reason, Titans didn’t have any wicket-keepers till the last moment of the auction.
However, they made a brilliant decision by buying Jason Roy for a price of 2 Crore. The Englishman had a fantastic time while playing for Quetta Gladiators in PSL. He has scored 303 runs in just 6 matches at an average of 50. Among the foreign players, Roy is the highest scorer.

3) Alex Hales
Kolkata Knight Riders are known for buying some of the best players from the auction. Alex Hales went to KKR for his base price. However, looking at his performance in PSL, KKR will defiantly get a huge benefit from the cricketer.
Alex Hales can be a clever choice for KKR as he has got the ability to play some big shots in the middle overs. In PSL, Hales has been part of 7 matches and has scored 255 runs at an average of 40. If his form continues in IPL as well, KKR will get a huge benefit.
4) David Willey
It is very clear that PSL is dominated by English cricketers. In the 2022 Pakistan Super League, English cricketers have done some wonders for their teams. David Willey, because of the same reason, went to Royal Challengers Bangalore from the IPL 2022 auction. Here are
In PSL 2022, Willey has picked up 10 wickets in just 6 matches at an average of 14.30. He will be one of the first-choice overseas players for RCB in the upcoming tournament of IPL. The pacer has disciplined line and length and can bowl constant yorkers.
5) Chris Jordan
Chirs Jordan is one of the best death-over specialists in the world. He has been part of 75 T20 internationals and has picked up 80 wickets while maintaining an economy of 8.66. Because of the same reason, Chennai Super Kings were quick to pick the Englishmen.
Jordan plays with Karachi Kings in PSL. The team had a very disappointing season of PSL this year. However, Jordan was the only performer on the team. He picked up 9 wickets in just 5 appearances. CSK will be expecting him to continue his form in IPL as well. Jordan’s yorkers and pace will benefit Chennai on Indian pitches but more than that his slower deliveries will suppose the batsman more.
