The IPL 2022 is just now two months away from getting underway. The mega auction which is happening in February has received a colossal registration of 1214 players. Out of such a mega pool, a total of 49 top-class individuals are part of the highest bracket slab (INR 2 Crore).
In fact, to further break it down, a total of 17 Indians and 32 overseas giants are part of this elite group. Even the old maestro like Imran Tahir and Dwayne Bravo have dwelled themselves to minimum grab a deal of INR 2 Crore. Most of the players will trigger a bidding way from this bracket but there will be some who might go unsold.
Here are five players with Rs 2 crore base price who might go unsold in IPL mega auction:
1. Craig Overton
In recent times, Craig Overton has made massive strides to progress as a white-ball cricketer. By representing Southern Brave, the all-rounder also won a winner’s medal. Even when COVID-19 had hit England in 2021 against PAK, Overton was called for his ODI debut.
However, in the shortest format, Overton’s numbers aren’t even substantial. The 27-year old in T20s has played a total of 63 games, scalping 58 wickets at an economy of almost 9. In fact, with regards to his batting skills, Overton has a bleak strike rate (119.70) and average (16.10).
Therefore, by placing himself in the highest bracket, Overton might not even intrigue the barest of eyeballs. As the teams will have far better options to pick, this Englishman will go unsold because of his ambitious price tag.
