5 most expensive players of IPL auction 2022



The mega auction of IPL 2022 has successfully started and it will continue for 2 days.

The franchises have added some big names to their squads on day 1 of the auction so far.

There were a lot of intense battles between the franchise during the bid for their favorite players but they also had to keep an eye on their purse.

So, we are providing you with the list of the top 5 most expensive players on day 1 of the IPL auction 2022. 

Ishan Kishan

Mumbai Indians were engaged in an extreme bidding war to bring back the wicketkeeper batter Ishan Kishan, who was part of the Mumbai Indians in the last few seasons.

Mumbai succeeded in the end as they bought him for a huge amount of 15.25 crores.

Ishan Kishan became the 2nd most expensive Indian buy in IPL history.

The former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh still holds the record of most expensive Indian buy in IPL history as he was bought by the Delhi Daredevils franchise which is currently known as Delhi Capitals for Rs 16 Crore.

The young left-handed batter became famous after his brilliant performance in the last couple of seasons and he is also a part of the white ball team of India.

Ishan Kishan will now most probably bat alongside Rohit Sharma at the opening slot for Mumbai Indians. 

Deepak Chahar

All-rounder Deepak Chahar made a huge buzz as he was bought for Rs 14 Crores in the auction by his former team Chennai Super Kings.

He was sold out for only Rs 80 lakh in the 2018 season but the Indian pacer became the second most expensive buy at the 2022 auction.

He has performed really well in the past 12 months for the Indian team.

He has proved himself as an all-rounder and played some crucial knocks for India that justify his price. 

Shreyas Iyer 

The talented middle-order batsman and former skipper of Delhi Capitals, Shreyas Iyer was sold out for 12.25 Crores to Kolkata Knight Riders.

It was expected that Iyer will be one of the most expensive purchases of this auction due to his strong impact in the middle order.

He is also a huge candidate for becoming the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders this season because of his leadership abilities.

Shreyas Iyer was the 1st player to cross the Rs 10 Crore mark in the auction today and he ended as the 3rd most expensive buy on the 1st day of the mega auction.

Shardul Thakur

The base price of Shardul Thakur was Rs 2 Crores but he was bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 10.75 Crores.

He has been a permanent part of team India in recent times.

Due to his all round and wicket-taking ability, Thakur is a great pick for Delhi Capitals.

He is quite handy with the bat too and can score quick runs in the death overs.

Harshal Patel

Royal Challengers Bangalore once again bought Harshal Patel in their squad for a huge price of Rs 10.75 Crores. 

He was sold out for just Rs 20 lakhs in IPL 2021 auction but after his brilliant performance in the last season and in domestic cricket, the same team RCB has purchased him for 10.75 Crore which is quite remarkable.

Harshal Patel was also the leading wicket-taker of last season with 32 wickets. 

The West Indian batter Nicholas Pooran and the star Sri Lankan all-rounder, Wanindu Hasaranga were also sold out for Rs 10.75 Crores.

They were picked by Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore respectively.

RCB women overcame UP Warriorz by 23 runs to clinch their third win of the season. The home side outperformed Warriorz in all the facets of the game and emerged victorious. A collective team effort, particularly with the bat, helped RCB women to beat Warriorz for the second time in the season. They now have three wins in their five matches in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy won the toss and opted to field first. Given how things have panned out in the league so far, it needed a great batting performance from RCB to challenge the chasing side. The home side did exactly that. They were full of intent which was lacking in the last few games. Right from the start, S Meghana and Smriti Mandhana smashed the bowlers.

It was the night of the RCB skipper. The Southpaw scored 80(50) in her stay. S Meghana perished after a valuable 28(21). Ellyse Perry batted well and registered her first fifty of the WPL 2024. She was aided well towards the end by Richa Ghosh whose 21(10) propelled RCB to a score of 198 on the board. It was the highest team total in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy’s efforts go in vain

Chasing the daunting total, UP Warriorz were off to a flier. The opening duo of Healy and Kiran Navgire gave a fiery start to the visiting side. When the two were batting in the PP overs, it seemed like the Warriorz could pull off an insane chase. However, Sophie Devine brought RCB back into the game with crucial wickets. At Bengaluru, the home crowd was literally behind the RCB women.

It helped the home side to stay calm and do their job with ease. Sophie Molineux and Asha Sobhana were the pick of the bowlers, who claimed 2/29 each in their spell of four overs. While Healy scored a fifty and Deepti tried her best in the death overs, ten daunting targets could not be chased down. Despite the early hiccups, RCB managed to restrict UP Warriorz to a score of 175 and won by 23 runs.

Praveen Kumar addresses Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer’s negligence of taking part in Ranji Trophy




Praveen Kumar

Praveen Kumar has given his opinion on the preferences of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer in recent times. The duo did not take part in the Ranji Trophy matches for their respective teams despite being fit. It did not go well with the Indian Cricket Board which landed the duo without a ventral contract which was announced a few days back.

Praveen Kumar has reacted to the issue recently. The former India pacer claimed that he has been of an opinion on the issue for a long time. Praveen felt that one should definitely earn money but not at the cost of neglecting to play for domestic and national teams. The right-arm pacer felt that players today are having a certain mentality which is not good.

The former pacer claimed that the players have a mindset that they can rest for a month before taking part in the IPL, thereby bypassing playing for their national team or the domestic teams. Praveen felt that the players could not resist letting go of money which they could earn by taking part in the IPL and other T20 leagues (For foreign players).

‘Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun’ – Praveen Kumar

“This thing is now firmly in the mind of players. Mai ek mahine pehle rest kar lunga, fir IPL khel lunga. Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun,” said Praveen in the interview. He claimed that youngsters these days are spoilt and are behind money. The former RCB pacer felt that it is not fair on the part of the young players to neglect the country over the IPL.

Kumar felt that a player needs to maintain a balance between playing for the IPL team and for the country. He felt that money is an important factor, but not at the cost of playing for the national team. “But this is not fair at all. A player needs to balance things. Money is important, but this (giving franchise cricket the priority) is wrong,” said the former Indian bowler in the interview.
