Sreesanth was not preferred by any franchise last year, thus failing to make it to the final auction list. Jofra Archer has registered for auction but is unlikely to be available for the IPL 2022.
There are players in the first round of the auction who could end up being among the biggest buys of this year’s IPL. Ishan Kishan decided to go into auction despite new franchises – Lucknow Super Giants and Team Ahmedabad showing interest in acquiring him pre-auction.
Tamil Nadu’s tall and muscular batsman Shahrukh Khan is expected to be the hot pick at the auction. Aakash Chopra had earlier expressed the possibility of Shahrukh becoming the most expensive uncapped player at this year’s IPL auction. Shahrukh was recently inducted into the T20I side against WI and has now raised his base price from 20 Lac to 40 Lac.
