The mega auction for IPL 2022 took place in Bengaluru on the February 12 and 13. Over 590 players had been listed ahead of the auction and 204 were bought by all the 10 franchises after a series of high-octane bidding. All the teams have tried buying players whom they felt were right for their team and we are all set to witness some great cricketing action in the upcoming IPL season.

Ishan Kishan, the left-handed wicketkeeper batter became the most expensive buy in the 2022 auction when the Mumbai Indians bought him for INR 15.25 Crore. All the sides came into the auction with a lot of vacancies to fill. While some teams were looking for batters, others were looking for good additions to the bowling department.

Some teams were building a new team with a new core while a few others were looking to find their new skipper in the auction. As earlier mentioned, with a lot of slots to fill, there were a lot of players for whom the bidding war took place between various teams at the same time.

Let’s take a look at players on whom a lot of teams bid:

The man who has led the dramatic rise of the rebranded Delhi franchise in IPL, Shreyas Iyer was one of the names that were expected to raise bids from various franchises. The right-handed batter from Mumbai has played 87 matches in the IPL scoring 2375 runs with a strike rate of 123.95, along with 16 fifty-plus scores. Having led Delhi twice into playoffs surely boosted the 27-year-old’s cricketing resume.

RCB and DC wasted no time in bidding for the middle-order batter as soon as his name came under the hammer. DC tried their best to get back their former skipper. However later LSG, GT, and KKR entered into the bidding and after a long bidding war, he was finally bought by KKR for INR 12.25 Crores.
