The Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction took place in the last month in Bengaluru for two days. Ten franchises spent a lot of money to make sure that they armor up with the best available squad in the tournament. However, there are a number of unsold Indian players in the tournament who can come across as replacements. We, in this article, will take a look at the list of 3 such unsold Indian players in IPL 2022.
Despite a stellar record in the cash-rich event, Raina was one of the shockingly unsold Indian players in the IPL 2022 big auction. Raina, dubbed Mr. IPL for his consistent performances for the Chennai Super Kings over the years. He is one of the all-time greats of the league and should be a replacement in IPL 2022.
Raina was unable to participate in the IPL 2020 owing to personal issues, and when he returned in 2021, he was not as effective as he had been previously. Raina was nowhere near his peak in IPL 2021, scoring 160 runs in 12 games, and was not selected for the final few games due to injury concerns.
However, Suresh Raina has scored 5528 runs in 205 IPL games. His experience in the short series is immaculate and unmatched. He is one of the best fielders India ever produced. The left-hander will be a huge asset to any franchise if he can get a place in any of them as a replacement.
Ishant Sharma could be counted as one of the top bowlers that the country has ever seen. He has immense experience of playing more than 100 Tests. It was a shock to everyone when he became one of the unsold Indian players in the mega Auction 2022.
Ishant Sharma has been playing IPL from the birth of the lucrative tournament. He has played for various franchises as well. His pace is comparatively lacking as it once used to be threatening for the opponent batters. Though his overall numbers in the IPL haven’t been that impressive, he is still counted as a good replacement if there are any requirements for pacers in any franchises.
Amit Mishra is regarded as the number 1 spinner of the IPL history with some impressive stats to his name. Everybody feels that he deserved to be bid by at least one franchise in the IPL 2022 mega auction. The 39-year-old is yet to announce his retirement from international cricket despite making his debut in 2003.
However, everyone was equally shocked when one of the top spinners of the Indian Premier League became one of the unsold Indian players in the auction. Mishra has been a huge success in IPL with 166 wickets in 154 games at an average of 23.9. He has three hat tricks under his belt. Mishra can be put to use for batting in the lower order and he can come in handy at crucial moments.
Amit Mishra appeared for Delhi Capitals in just four games in the previous edition of the IPL and was impressive with six wickets which included a four-wicket haul as well. He is capable of turning the game in his team’s favor whenever we think it is out of their hands.
