Two big days of the IPL 2022 mega auction have finally come to an end with a lot of money being splashed in for recruits and there were surprises from all the ten teams battling it for Indian players especially. A very interesting auction had set it up well for the ten-team tournament this year and here is what Rajasthan Royals’ squad looks like after their auction.  

Rajasthan Royals came into the auction having retained two capped players in skipper Sanju Samson and overseas dasher Jos Buttler and they also retained young sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal as their uncapped player. They had a purse amount of INR 62 Crores coming into the mega auction and have brought in some good players.  

Rajasthan Royals’ Picks in IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Rajasthan Royals had an excellent start to the auction as they bought two players from the marquee list in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin and Trent Boult. Ashwin was a steal at INR 5 crore with his immense experience while Boult is excellent with the new ball and at the back end of the innings. They also acquired the services of Shimron Hetmyer who can play the finisher role while the top order is already filled.  

Rajasthan has struggled over the years to find a strong Indian contingent and they have made their homework really well ahead of the auction. The franchise grabbed leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who is a match-winner with the ball and forms an excellent spin attack alongside Ashwin. The Indian contingent has got a little bit stronger for the franchise with the pacers Navdeep Saini and Prasidh Krishna.  

The franchise has included the likes of Riyan Parag and KC Kariappa who have been part of the squad in their past seasons and they will have a role to play in the squad. The surprising pick was the bagging of Devdutt Padikkal for a price of INR 7.75 crore who has played at the top of the order mostly. The top order is already stacked up with Buttler, Samson and youngster Jaiswal and it is going to be difficult to fit in Padikkal who falls into the same category as Jaiswal.
