IPL 2022 Mega Auction Updates: Day 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction is set to get underway in a few hours’ time in Bengaluru
IPL 2022 Auction Live: Day 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction is set to get underway in a few hours’ time in Bengaluru. Two new teams (Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants) will join the existing eight franchises Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Rajasthan Royals as 10 teams, their owners, coaches, support staffs, scouts and for some even the captains will join the bidding war in the two-day long IPL 2022 auction that starts today. The 15th edition of the tournament is likely to begin towards the end of March but before that, this auction will decide how the teams pan out for the next few seasons. IPL powerhouses like CSK, MI, KKR have retained as many four players and will enter the auction with a lighter purse along with DC, who too have retained four and have the least amount to spend in this auction. Punjab Kings, who retained only two ahead of the auction, have the biggest purse. But as the past IPL auctions have shown us, remaining purse is hardly an indicator of how strong a would shape up. If there is anything that is certain about the auctions, it is its uncertainty. The cricket world will have its eyes glued to the screen in excitement and anticipation when the IPL auction begins but not more than the 590 players who are set to go under the hammer in these two days.
