The Indian Premier League (IPL) has decided to broaden its horizons, expand its wings and see what exists beyond the realms of possibility. With the IPL 2022 mega auction almost upon us, the excitement is unparalleled among fans. But the biggest question is when what is the IPL 2022 auction date, time, venue. Are there any new teams? How much money does each team have?

The IPL 2022 mega auction will be held in February. Two new franchises from the revered Indian cities of Lucknow and Ahmedabad will be making the tournament a 10-team affair for the first time in a decade. Although the last experiment with 10 teams did not bode well, there is increased optimism that this time they can work it out well in the long run.

Both Lucknow and Ahmedabad clubs have the opportunity to draft 3 players from the pool of players who were not retained by the existing 8 franchises, out of which they can pick only one foreigner.

Before the cricketing extravaganza begins, the 10 teams will be in the same room to find their players who can lead them to glory during the mega auction. After the inaugural IPL auction, this is the 4th time an IPL mega auction will be organized with most teams getting reshuffled quite significantly.

Here’s everything you need to know about the IPL 2022 mega auction.

When will the IPL 2022 Mega Auction be held?

The IPL 2022 mega auction for the upcoming edition of the tournament is set to be conducted on February 12th and 13th, 2022. After a lot of back and forth, the IPL governing council has decided on the two dates for the IPL 2022 mega auction.

What is the IPL 2022 Mega Auction Venue?

The 2022 mega auction will be conducted in Bengaluru, India. However, due to the increased cases of Coronavirus cases, the BCCI is closely monitoring things and the venue can be changed in the near future.

Statistics Comparison:M S Dhoni Vs. Virat Kohli

List of Retained Players for IPL 2022 mega acution

Chennai Super Kings

  • Ravindra Jadeja – Rs. 16 Crore
  • MS Dhoni – Rs. 12 Crore
  • Moeen Ali – Rs. 8 Crore
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad – Rs. 6 Crore

In a slightly surprising move, Chennai Super Kings decided to retain MS Dhoni despite the cricketer entering his 40s. Ravindra Jadeja was the franchise’s first-choice retention, whilst the likes of Mooen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad won the owners’ trust to form their core for the next season.

Delhi Capitals

  • Rishabh Pant – Rs. 16 Crore
  • Axar Patel – Rs. 9 Crore
  • Prithvi Shaw – Rs. 7.5 Crore
  • Anrich Nortje – Rs. 6.5 Crore

Whilst Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Anrich Nortje were obvious picks for the Delhi Capitals moving into the 2022 edition, Axar Patel as their second-choice pick at INR 9 Crore came in as a surprise. It came at the expense of Shreyas Iyer, but the all-rounder has been brilliant with the ball in the last couple of seasons and warrants his position in the side.

Sunil Narine sits third among bowlers with most wickets in T20 cricket

Kolkata Knight Riders

  • Andre Russell – Rs. 12 Crore
  • Varun Chakravarthy – Rs. 8 Crore
  • Venkatesh Iyer – Rs. 8 Crore
  • Sunil Narine – Rs. 6 Crore

Sunil Narine and Andre Russell were the only players retained ahead of the last mega auction, and the West Indian giants once again will form the KKR core. Besides them, among Indian cricketers, the franchise has entrusted Varun Chakravarthy and Venkatesh Iyer to be a part of this unit. It is also being rumoured that Kolkata are eying for Shreyas Iyer in the auction as a potential captaincy choice in the IPL 2022.

Mumbai Indians

  • Rohit Sharma – Rs. 16 Crore
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Rs. 12 Crore
  • Suryakumar Yadav – Rs. 8 Crore
  • Kieron Pollard – Rs. 6 Crore

The five-time champions had some tough choices to make, but a lot of their acquisitions were pretty obvious. Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah’s retaining comes as no surprise. Suryakumar Yadav’s excellent form pipped him ahead of Hardik Pandya and Ishan Khan. Kieron Pollard, the club’s longest serving member right now, also makes his way for the 2022 edition.

Punjab Kings

  • Mayank Agarwal – Rs. 12 Crore
  • Arshdeep Singh – Rs. 4 Crore

With KL Rahul deciding to leave the franchise, Punjab Kings did not have many options to pick from. But they decided to back Mayank Agarwal for this new start and might hand him captaincy duties as well. The impressive Arshdeep Singh, the uncapped left-arm pacer with 30 wickets in the first three seasons, was also retained.

Rajasthan Royals

  • Sanju Samson – Rs. 14 Crore
  • Jos Buttler – Rs. 10 Crore
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal – Rs. 4 Crore

The first-ever champions of this tournament, Rajasthan Royals made pretty obvious decisions with their retentions. Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler have been their most pivotal contributors with the bat in the last few editions, and they will feature together again next season. Among uncapped players, Yashasvi Jaiswal was asked to stay and it seems like they have the top order sorted for IPL 2022.

Who is the top run-getter in T20Is

Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • Virat Kohli – Rs. 15 Crore
  • Glenn Maxwell – Rs. 11 Crore
  • Mohammed Siraj – Rs. 7 Crore

AB de Villiers’ retirement from professional cricket made it easy for RCB to pick Glenn Maxwell as their only overseas pick. The Australian all-rounder delivered a stunning performance last time and was retained alongside the obvious pick, Virat Kohli. Mohammed Siraj’s rapid rise in recent months has earned him a retention as well. Bangalore will be in the market for a captain and they could be after options like David Warner or Eoin Morgan.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

  • Kane Williamson – Rs. 14 Crore
  • Abdul Samad – Rs. 4 Crore
  • Umran Malik – Rs. 4 Crore

The Orange Army let go of two of their best players in David Warner and Rashid Khan ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. Kane Williamson will be leading them in IPL 2022. The uncapped cricketers from Jammu & Kashmir, Abdul Samad and Umran Malik were the other surprise retention picks from SRH.

What is the remaining purse for the teams ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction?

Chennai Super Kings

Total Deduction for retained players – Rs. 42 Crore

Available Salary Purse – Rs. 48 Crore

Delhi Capitals

Total Deduction for retained players – Rs. 42.50 Crore

Available Salary Purse – Rs. 47.50 Crores

What are the two new teams in IPL 2022?

Team Lucknow

Purchased for a whopping INR 7090 Crore by the RPSG Sanjiv Goenka Group, who previously were the owners of the now-defunct Rising Pune Super Giant, Team Lucknow has its operations underway already and are about to finalize their draft picks. As it stands, they are the most valuable team in monetary terms in the IPL. They have made their presence felt on social media and released a little teaser creating anticipation and excitement before their name launch.

The Lucknow franchise is in talks with KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, with a hope to rope one of these experienced IPL players as their captain.

Team Ahmedabad

The other city picked to be part of the IPL for 2022 comes in as no surprise, as Ahmedabad is currently the location for the biggest cricket stadium in the world. The franchise was purchased by British equity firm CVC Capital Partners, who previously were involved heavily in Formula One and American Football. They won the bid at INR 5,625 Crore.

The procession of drafting players for these two new franchises was delayed due to CVC Capital’s investment in Sky Betting and Gaming. The IPL governing council raised a conflict of interest. However, the organisation later confirmed that the its Asian-Pacific wing owned the new team, with no relation to the European wing. The team finally managed to get its clearance and will soon make its way into social media.

It is being rumoured that Ahmedabad are trying to sign Hardik Pandya as their captaincy option, and are likely to sign Afghanistan stalwart Rashid Khan and young Indian batter Ishan Kishan.

Players available for Lucknow and Ahmedabad to pick in IPL 2022 mega auction

When will IPL 2022 Start?

The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will kick-off at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, the home of the defending champions on 2nd April 2022. Chennai Super Kings will be featuring in this fixture.

There are plenty of efforts being made by the BCCI to conduct the tournament in India, but the third wave of the pandemic is threatening to deny the Indian public of that joy. IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla mentioned that South Africa, Sri Lanka and UAE will be options if the tournament cannot be hosted by India. However, he mentioned that the top priority will be to host it in India, with Maharashtra potentially hosting all the fixtures. The the state has three stadiums: the Brabourne Stadium, Wankhede Stadium and the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

What are the new rules for the IPL 2022 mega auction?

Contrary to how it has worked every time in the IPL mega auctions, there will not be a “Right to Match” card. All the teams have exercised the option to retain existing players, and the new franchises will be drafting three each before the mega auction. This means that if a team is interested in bringing back an old player, they should win him in the auction fair-and-square.

As usual, each team will be asked to pick a minimum of 18 players from the auction and a maximum of 25, out of which the cap for overseas cricketers will be 8. As it happens every year, each franchise’s purse goes up by INR 5 Crore and it will be INR 90 Crore this time.

IPL 2022 Schedule

The IPL governing council is yet to announce the official schedule of the tournament. However, what we do know is that the defending champions Chennai Super Kings will kick start the proceedings in IPL 2022. They are likely to play Kolkata Knight Riders, the finalists from last season in the final.
