5. Odean Smith

In the CPL 2021, the 25 -year old scalped 18 wickets from 11 games at an impressive economy of 7.54. Perhaps even in his latest international outings, Odean has just kept himself afloat. However, his position in the top bracket for IPL 2022 will, unfortunately, result in a no purchase situation.

4. Imran Tahir

However in IPL 2022, Tahir may not find any buyer to take him on board. As the franchises will be looking to sign players for a longer duration, Tahir’s ageing body may not fit the bill. Also as the auction table will provide another plenitude of leg-spinners, the teams will conclusively move in that direction.

3. Marchant de Lange

Therefore in a pool where the likes of Rabada, Pat Cummins and Trent Boult will be the top dogs, de Lange will get swayed completely. Overall, even if teams want to sign pace bowlers, then local spearheads will come to the fore. Possibly mid-way if any injuries happen then de Lange might play IPL 2022.

2. Dinesh Karthik

Barring his breakthrough IPL season in 2018, Karthik has only amassed 253, 169 & 223 runs in recent times. Hence with IPL teams looking to build their squads for a longer horizon, Karthik’s iffy batting and age might lead to him going unsold. Overall maybe a lower price tag would have helped DK bag a contract in IPL 2022.

1. Craig Overton

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).
