The 2022 IPL mega auction presents the opportunity for a huge pool of players to get picked by sides who look to structure their future squads. While some teams have kept their marquee players off the hammer, a major section of their squad will have to fight their way into the 10-team affair this auction.

The retention and released list of players did raise a lot of eyebrows with many stars of the 2021 season excluded by their squads. With the countdown of the mega auction ticking and the excitement building around it, a number of teams may look to buy back a few players, who have played exceptionally for them.

In the article, let’s look at 5 released players who might get picked by the same teams in the mega auction

1. Ishan Kishan – Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians are often known as the king of scouting in the IPL. They are known as the team that produces and grooms emerging talents of modern cricket. Housing a lethal southpaw in its shed for the past three years – Ishan Kishan has been a breakthrough addition to the MI franchise.

Given the license to strike from ball one, the 23-year-old has proven his name on the big stage over the years. His ability to act as a floater and his handy wicket-keeping skills made him an automatic selection in the playing XI. In his three years with Mumbai, he scored 1133 runs at a stellar strike rate of 138.50 across different batting positions.

The eight 50’s against his name and his capability to anchor the innings, taking the 16 ball- 50 in Mumbai’s highest ever score in IPL history this season as an example, make him hard to look away from.

While his exclusion from the retained list ahead of the auction surprised many, Kishan will undoubtedly be on top of MI’s priority list. As the franchise enters the 2022 mega auction with INR 48 crores in their kitty, Kishan might eat away a big chunk of their money. Nevertheless, they will look to reunite him with the core.
