Over the years, the IPL auction has emerged as one of the most celebrated events in India's cricketing calendar, and fans' fondness for the same continues to rise. The 16th edition of the player auction is slated to be held on December 23 in Kochi. It will present an excellent opportunity for the franchises to rope in top-quality personnel and upgrade themselves.
The player auction will witness 405 players go under the hammer, of which 273 are Indians and 132 are overseas players. Among the Indian T20 stars featuring at the marquee event, there are certain cricketers who have been playing some exceptional cricket of late and have made a very strong case for themselves to earn an IPL contract.
Here are five in-form Indian players who deserve to get picked at the auction:
5. Samarth Vyas
Samarth Vyas has been a consistent performer in the Indian domestic circuit. He has featured in 28 games in the shortest format and amassed 649 runs at a remarkable strike rate of 150.58 The 27-year-old has taken the attack to the opposition right from the get-go and dismantled bowling attacks with his stroke play.
The Saurashtra batter was quite phenomenal during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) 2022 and smashed 314 runs in seven games at a dazzling strike rate of 177.40. He carried his rich vein of form into the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 and aggregated 443 runs in ten matches at a strike rate of 106.74.
The Rajkot-born plays a fearless style of cricket which has become the need of the hour in the T20 circuit. Besides his hitting prowess, Samarth has shown his ability to shepherd the innings, which makes him an asset for any team. Therefore, there are high chances of the ace batter getting his first IPL gig.
