New Delhi: A mega auction is to be held before the start of IPL 2022, in which players from all over the world will be bidding. Like every time, once again all the teams will blow crores of rupees on the players. It will be interesting to see who remains the most expensive player in the mega auction. KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya can be the biggest contenders for this. But there is another player who can break all the records in the auction.
Will this player break all the records?
Some big bids can be seen in the mega auction to be held before IPL 2022. Especially there is a foreign batsman who rocked the T20 World Cup. Yes, we are talking about South African batsman Aidan Markram. In the T20 World Cup 2021, Markram played many quick innings. Markram scored 162 runs in just 5 matches, but during this time he averaged 54. Markram’s bat also got two half-centuries in these 5 matches. The special thing about this batsman is that he comes in the middle order and changes the face of the match in just a few overs. Markram is also famous all over the world for hitting long sixes.
Part of Punjab Kings in 2021
Markram was part of Punjab Kings in IPL 2021. He was suddenly included in the team in the second half. Although Punjab Kings could not reach the playoffs, but Markram told in a few matches how he could create a storm with his bat. If Punjab team drops him, then one thing is clear that this batsman will break big records in IPL mega auction.
Will also keep eyes on Rahul-Hardik
In the mega auction, everyone’s eyes will also be on the best opening batsman KL Rahul and fast all-rounder Hardik Pandya. If reports are to be believed, Punjab Kings may drop KL Rahul next year. In such a situation, there is going to be a lot of war between the teams regarding this player. Along with batting excellently, Rahul can also handle the responsibility of captaincy. On the other hand, talking about Hardik, he is such a player who can change the face of the game in just a few overs. However, Mumbai can drop Hardik next year.
IPL auction to be held afresh
Fresh players will be bid for IPL 2022, although some cricketers will already be retained. New teams have joined the tournament in the form of Ahmedabad and Lucknow. Both these franchises can get a discount to buy some players in advance. It has to be seen on which player the teams will place the highest bid in the mega auction.
