IPL Mega Auction 2022 Drafts
Both Yuzi and Shreyas Iyer will spice the tables with their presence in the drafts.

The IPL Mega Auction 2022 is going to be a turning point in the careers of several players. This money ball game will also see 6 players getting picked in the draft of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. This means that these players will not go to the auction table but will be hand-picked by two new franchises before the auction begins. This rule has been created to ensure that the two new teams in IPL 2022 Mega Auction have a fair chance to contest. So, here is a look: 

KL Rahul: 

KL Rahul is the most certain pick in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction Draft. The reports say that he has struck a deal with the Lucknow-based franchise for 20 Crore Indian Rupees. He is also expected to lead that team. KL Rahul is the best Indian T20 Batter at the moment. KL Rahul I the complete package since he is young, brings in the wicket-keeping option and opens the batting in the most dominant fashion. Rahul is going to Lucknow! 

Yuzvendra Chahal: 

Not often do you get the most successful Indian T20I bowler in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction Draft. Yuzvendra Chahal is also expected to make a lot of money from the draft itself. There are reports that he left Royal Challengers Bangalore because he was citing better deals with the two new franchises.  

Shikhar Dhawan/ Shreyas Iyer: 

Another captaincy option for the two new franchises. Shikhar Dhawan is the optimum choice for the franchises in IPL 2022 Mega Auction. An experienced left-handed opening batsman who has dominated the IPL since his debut. Shikhar previously has had a captaincy stint with the Sunrisers Hyderabad as well. His experience of captaincy in Sri Lanka last year adds to his portfolio. Any of the two franchises can pick him up. But it is certain that Ahmedabad will go all-guns-blazing for Shikhar. 

Shreyas Iyer is a front runner for getting the captaincy after KL Rahul. His performance as Delhi Capitals’ captain was fantastic. His batting is never under scrutiny as well.

David Warner: 

After having a dreadful IPL 2021 and parting ways with Sunrisers Hyderabad, David Warner smashed all the bowlers in the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE. David Warner was awarded “Man of the Series” in the tournament. He also has shown signs of good form in the first innings of the Ashes 2021. David Warner is likely to strike a deal with the Ahmedabad-based franchise at the time of drafting in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. 

Rashid Khan: 

If Yuzvendra Chahal is the best leg spinner in India, Rashid Khan is the best in the world. After parting ways with Sunrisers Hyderabad due to a pay scale problem, Rashid Khan will be picked by Ahmedabad or Lucknow. If Yuzi is picked by Lucknow, Rashid Khan will go to the other team and vice versa. Rashid Khan is certainly not going to the auction table. 

Ishan Kishan:  

Ishan Kishan is another young, left-handed, opening batsman who can keep wickets. He can also take up the captaincy. A complete package with attacking abilities, Ishan Kishan is going to be picked in the draft. The skills that Ishan brings along with him, adding his age to the advantage, are second to none.
