When and Where to Watch Live Stream, IPL 2022 Auction Venue

Shreyas Iyer and all-rounder Shardul Thakur are expected to head to the bank with a laugh as two of the costliest buys in Indian Premier League history when the latest mega-auction kicks off in Bengaluru on Saturday.

The league’s 10 teams, following the addition of Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Supergiants, will make a big offer for Indian players in a roster of 590 cricketers, including 227 foreign contenders up for grabs during the two day event.

This year’s auction could see the maximum number of bids of one million Indian dollars (Rs 7.5 crore and above) with more than 10 cricketers set to break through the Rs 10 crore bidding range and some are expected to reach close to Rs 20 crore.

With megastars like Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings), Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bengaluru) and Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians) retained by their respective franchises, the teams ranged from flamboyant mid-level batsmen to good spinners not to forget the all. -curves, which are always in demand.

While KL Rahul at Rs 17 crore is the player with the highest retention price, former Delhi Capitals skipper Iyer could force some of the franchises like Punjab Kings (Rs 72 crore purse), Sunrisers Hyderabad (Rs 68 crore) and Rajasthan Royals (Rs 72 crore). 62 crore) to break the bank.

These are franchises that need solid mid-order game changers and also a member of the leadership group in case Mayank Agarwal or Kane Williamson doesn’t work.

Since this is a mega auction and teams must have a minimum of 18 players on their roster (everyone will go in the range of 22-25 players), Indian players – both capped and uncapped – will be greatly appreciated. This is the reason why last year’s Purple Cap winner Harshal Patel has maintained a base price of Rs 2 crore as he can get up to five times more than that while the second taker Avesh Khan has kept it as low as Rs 20 lakh, hoping it can increase 50 times (Rs 10 crore).

Even lesser T20 artists like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane at their premium base price should find takers while someone like an Ambati Rayudu could fetch a good Rs 7 to 8 crore. Bhuvneshwar Kuma, who has well past his prime, and returning Kuldeep Yadav should also get some decent, if not handsome, offers.

Watch out for Deepak Hooda, who has improved his game since the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and is now also a capped Indian player, with a very decent first two ODI games against the Windies.
