The most successful franchise of the IPL is in a confusion for the 2022 Mega Auction. Mumbai Indians, the most successful franchise in IPL, and their great ability to build a strong team has helped them gain so much success in the T20 league.
In recent years, Mumbai has not only managed to get good foreign buys but also acquired some really good young talents like Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, and Rahul Chahar. But for the 2022 IPL, there is a Mega Auction to be organized. Now in IPL Mega Auction, if a franchise retains:
• Three players: they will have only 2 RTM cards available for the Auction.
• Two players: they will have only 3 RTM cards available for the Auction.
• One or no player: They will still get only 3 RTM cards.
This means a team can retain a maximum of five players. Among them, there can be
-maximum 3 capped Indian players
-maximum 2 overseas players
-maximum 2 uncapped Indian players
So this creates confusing trouble for Mumbai Indians, as most probably they’ll retain Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Hardik Pandya. Now the question is on which two players Mumbai should use their RTM cards? Therefore, here are-
5 players on whom MI can use RTM in IPL 2022
1. Rahul Chahar
Chahar joined MI’s Squad in 2018 but he didn’t play a single game in the entire season. Chahar showed his magic with the ball in the 2019 IPL season where he took 13 wickets in the 13 matches he played. He again played an important role in the 2020 edition in UAE taking 15 wickets in 15 matches. His contributions helped Mumbai to become the champions in 2019 and 2020.
Now he is a regular man of the Mumbai squad. In the 2021 season, which is halfway suspended now, he played a crucial role for Mumbai to do a comeback. His brilliant bowling in the MI vs KKR match gained him a lot of praise.
In short, he is a significant player in the Mumbai squad. Mumbai is also lacking a good spinner other than Chahar in the contingent. So there are chances that Mumbai will use the RTM card for Rahul Chahar.
