IPL 2022 Mega Auction: Akash Chopra has commented on which player will be the highest bidder in the mega auction for the 15th season of IPL.
IPL 2022 Mega Auction For 15th Season
With 14 successful seasons in the IPL, two more teams, Lucknow and Ahmedabad, will be playing in the 15th season. So the auction for next season is going to be a mega auction.
All teams must retain 4 players each and release the other players. New teams can pick up 3 players before the auction.
The mega auction has generated a lot of anticipation as many big players will be featured in the mega auction, including David Warner, who left the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad.
In this case, Akash Chopra has told Aru which player will be the highest bidder in the auction for next season.
Akash Chopra tweeted that KL Rahul will be the highest bidder in the mega auction. Akash Chopra has said that if the pay ceiling for players is not fixed, KL Rahul will definitely cost a whopping Rs 20 crore.
Why KL Rahul may be most expensive player in 15th Season IPL?
KL Rahul has been batting brilliantly for the last few seasons in the IPL and the captaincy has been doing well. He has been lifting the Punjab Kings team individually as a batsman and captain for the last few seasons.
Rahul, who is also an action-packed bowler for India, is currently bowling at Chema Farm. He amassed 626 runs last season. Rahul had scored just 9 runs less than Rudraj Kejriwal, who had amassed more runs last season. The CSK team on which Rudraj depended played till the final.
But the Punjab team played by Rahul was eliminated from the league round. So Rahul pulls 2 matches less than Rudraj. Even so, Rahul was just 9 runs short of Rudraj. Perhaps if the Punjab team had qualified for the play-offs, Rahul would have been the highest run scorer last season.
Rahul, who had scored 670 runs in the previous IPL 13th season (2020), won the Orange Cup. Rahul was the second highest run scorer after Warner with 593 runs in the previous 2019 season. Thus, Rahul has been one of the top 3 run scorers for the last few seasons. As such, Akash Chopra has predicted that Rahul will be the highest bidder in the mega auction for next season.
