Day two of the IPL mega auction is set to kick off from 12 PM.
The first day of the IPL 2022 mega auction saw a successful end where various teams bagged players of their choice after aggressive bidding. As many as 590 players were set to go under the hammer wherein the majority of the big names have found a team for themselves. The remaining ones might get home for the new season on day two of the auction.
Mumbai Indians broke the bank to buy back Ishan Kishan
As CSK retained four players in form of MS Dhoni, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ravindra Jadeja, and Moeen Ali, they were all in need of a fine pacer. No one apart from Deepak Chahar could’ve done justice do that spot as he had been Dhoni’s go-to man with the new ball for a few years.
Other players’ who stowed consideration on day one were Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Avesh Khan, Suresh Raina, etc. Mumbai Indians broke their bank to purchase back Kishan at a gigantic INR 15.25 crore while KKR took absent Iyer for 12.25 Crore. It was a stunner for all to see that Suresh Raina, prevalently called Mr. IPL went unsold within the handle.
Avesh Khan became the most expensive uncapped player in IPL’s history as Lucknow Super Giants acquired his services for INR 10 crore. Earlier in the day, Lucknow brought a partner for opener KL Rahul in form of South African star Quinton de Kock.
