10. Lungi Ngidi
He again made his comeback in 2020 and was in the squad in 2021 too. If at all the franchise drops him out for the next auction, he might impress the two teams who need a tall fast bowler with good variations and bouncers and will go for a good price.
9. Quinton de Kock
He was the highest run-scorer for Mumbai Indians in the 2019 IPL season. He is undoubtedly a good wicket-keeping batter with a strike rate of 130 in IPL. He might be one of the hot picks in the upcoming auction.
8. Shakib Al Hasan
He has played 71 matches in IPL and has taken 63 wickets with an economy of 7.4. In batting, he has a strike rate of 125 and the highest score of 66. He should be a good buy if any team requires an experienced all-rounder.
7. Lockie Ferguson
In 2021 he took 13 wickets in just 8 matches and again with a 3 wicket haul, with an economy of 8.11. A gun pacer with an ability to pick wickets, Lockie could be an X- factor for any team looking for a pace battery.
6. Moeen Ali
His ability to bat at any position and counterattack the opposition was something that put CSK in the dominant positions many times. Any team looking for a good all-rounder would go for him
5. Pat Cummins
KKR again backed him and became one of the vital players in the 13th and first leg of the 14th edition of IPL. A team looking for an aggressive all-rounder could definitely go for him.
4. Joe Root
After 2018, he has not yet entered the auction pool. As per recent reports, his interest to appear in the most-watched cricket league has not faded away, and is about to give a try in the 2022 auction and could hopefully go his way with the arrival of 2 new teams.
3. Steve Smith
Steve Smith is a noteworthy candidate on this list. He also brings in the captaincy trait along with his batting skills. The two teams would look for an in-built captain as they could build the team around him according to his suggestion as well, for which Smith could be any of the two team’s first choice.
2. Trent Boult
This dynamic bowler would be of great use for the two new teams, as he could be an apt person to lead the pace attack. His swing in the powerplay overs, his ability to take early wickets, and his accurate Yorkers are seen as his major strength.
1. David Warner
He was sacked from the captaincy and eventually from the team once his ally Kane Williamson took over in 2021 after consecutive losses in the first phase of the league. It is believed that he won’t be continuing for SRH anymore and could get picked in any of the two teams as a captain figure too.
