The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday released the complete list of players that will go under the hammer ahead of the IPL 2022 auction that will be held in Chennai on February 18. The auction is going to be a big moment for Indian cricketers as well as overseas stars who are seeking their fortunes in the cash-rich league.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday released the complete list of players that will go under the hammer ahead of the IPL 2022 auction that will be held in Chennai on February 18.
In order to release the list, the BCCI had asked all franchises to submit their shortlist by Wednesday evening. The board also confirmed that there would be no retentions this time around and each team would get an opportunity to retain two players from their current squad.
The IPL auction 2022 will see a total of 590 players - 332 Indians and 258 overseas cricketers - going under the hammer. This includes 102 uncapped players, who will be available to all franchises at Rs 20 lakh apiece.
The majority of Indian players in the auction pool belong to Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, who were suspended for two years by the Supreme Court following an investigation into corruption. Both teams have been permitted to retain 10 players each and also can sign up two new ones during this period.
The franchise has retained five overseas cricketers so far - Mitchell McClenaghan (New Zealand), Ankit Sharma (Australia), Sandeep Warrier (England) and Nathan McCullum (New Zealand) – while also signing up three new overseas signings: Colin Munro (New Zealand), Liam Livingstone (England) and Ben McDermott (Australia). The team has only three capped Indian cricketers on its roster: Nitish Rana, Suryakumar Yadav, Jay Bista. With their 11th pick during the player draft last month, KKR picked Deepak Chahar from Rajasthan Royals; he became their first ever local player from Jharkhand in franchise history
Franchises had to submit shortlist of players they wanted to retain and players they wanted to release.
The IPL Governing Council will decide on what happens with each individual case (retain/release).
Here is how this process works for a team that has released a player: if another franchise picks him up as an uncapped player during the auction, he could be paid by the new franchise at least 20% more than his base price. If no one bids for him, then he would go back into his original franchise's pool of retained players for next year's auction.
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag said: "Kohli is a great player and has played at big stages in World Cups. He's one of the best players in world cricket because of his consistency."
Meanwhile, former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh said that he would be disappointed if Kohli fails to win another World Cup title with a new set-up.
Chris Morris is the leading wicket-taker in IPL 2019 and has played an integral part in Kings XI Punjab's success this season. He has picked up 26 wickets at an economy rate of just under eight runs per over.
Kyle Jamieson has been a consistent performer for Chennai Super Kings in recent years and also played a key role in their title win last season. The allrounder has scored 516 runs at an average of 36.11 with three half centuries to his name this year.
Glenn Maxwell is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world these days but hasn't been able to replicate his performances for Kings XI Punjab over multiple seasons now due to inconsistent form or injuries plaguing him during key moments on field."
Your base price is determined by your performance in the previous season. Base price includes all performances in all tournaments, including international matches and domestic league games. If a player has won a Purple Cap or been named to the team of the tournament, their base price will be higher than other players' base prices.
Base prices are set at the same level for all teams so that each team has an equal chance of buying players they want. In addition to being fair, this also means that if you want to buy a player from another team, there's no guarantee that he'll be available for purchase because he might already have been bought by another franchise.
Chetan Sakariya is only 19 years old and played for Gujarat in the Ranji Trophy last season. He made his first-class debut in 2018, playing against Mumbai. He was part of the India Under-19 side that won the World Cup this year and also played a few games as an opener in both formats at junior level. While he has been compared to Virat Kohli due to his batting style, he doesn't boast of an explosive start to his career."
