IPL 2022: The fourteen seasons of the cash-rich IPL have come to a close. It must have given us clarity on the franchises and their ambitions. So far, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have done well. Mumbai Indians are the most successful team so far with 5 titles.
On the other side of the coin, Chennai Super Kings won the 2021 edition of the IPL to win their fourth title. Meanwhile, the fans are witnessing the T20 World Cup spectacle that is currently taking place in the Gulf nation.
India, South Africa and West Indies are the top teams that were eliminated from the competition. England, Australia, Pakistan and New Zealand made it to the semi-finals. New Zealand will take on England in the first semi-final today.
Pakistan will take on Pakistan in the second semi-final tomorrow. Some cricketers showcased their mettle in the T20 World Cup 2021. Now, in this article, we will take a look at the list of 5 players who might attract massive bids in the upcoming auction.
Afghanistan prospect Mujeeb Ur Rahman hogged the limelight when he registered his career-best bowling figures in T20Is. The spinner took 5/20 in his quota of 20 overs against Scotland in the Super 12 stage.
He deceived the batsmen by bowling tricky deliveries. There is no doubt that the franchises would even go for a bidding war to sign the Afghanistan international in the upcoming mega auction for IPL 2022.
South African international Aiden Markram is turning out to be one of the best players for the national team. We believe that Aiden Markram can be like Faf du Plessis.
Markram plays a fearless brand of cricket and also does proper fielding. He has taken superb catches so far. Markram scored 162 runs in 5 games with a staggering average of 54. There is no doubt that franchises would start a bidding war to sign this guy for IPL 2022.
Namibia started their campaign with a winning note over the Scotland cricket team but went on to lose the remaining four games. However, David Wiese single-handedly led the team by example.
Netizens praised the former South African cricketer for his all-around contribution. He scored 227 runs and took 6 wickets in 8 games. There are possibilities that he might be roped in by one of the franchises for a whopping price tag.
Australia’s leg spinner Adam Zampa has been productive in crunch situations. He bagged a five-wicket haul against Bangladesh (5/19). Zampa once again proved his worth in the shortest circuit.
The talented spinner accounted for 11 dismissals in only 5 games. Besides taking wickets, he has kept the batsmen in check and has been economical. Zampa is one of the players who might attract big bids in the next auction.
Sri Lanka might have failed to qualify for the semi-final but the players showed great might and determination. Charith Asalanka was one of the players who showcased his mettle.
He ended up as the top run-getter for Sri Lanka in the six-match campaign. Asalanka scored 231 runs including his fantabulous 80 off 49 deliveries against Bangladesh.
