The IPL 2022 mega auction will take place in February, and ten teams will compete to select their favorite players. So far, 27 players have been retained by the eight franchises. Prior to the auction, each of the two new franchises will select three players for their squads. As a result, a large number of players including a few U-19 players will be auctioned off during the IPL 2022 auction.
India’s Under-19 cricketers have made a lot of money in IPL auctions in the past, and it will be no different this time when the paddle is raised on February 12 and 13. While some of the U-19 players go unsold, others do receive some interest. Despite the fact that they do not receive a large sum, they do receive the base amount of Rs. 20 lakh.
- Yash Dhull
Yash Dhull, the captain of India’s U-19 team, made his mark on the world in India’s first game against South Africa, scoring 82 runs in 100 deliveries before testing positive for Covid-19. Following his success with the under-19 team, he may be selected in the upcoming auctions by a franchise.
- Raj Bawa
Raj Bawa is an all-rounder who’s probably best suited to the IPL. He can bowl 3-4 overs with ease and is also a capable batsman. In addition to his 42 off 64 against Ireland and four big wickets with the ball against South Africa, he had a sensational knock (162 of 108) against Uganda. Franchises in desperate need of a young all-rounder will undoubtedly bid for Bawa in the auction, and the youngster could walk away with a sizable payday.
- Vicky Ostwal
In India’s first World Cup match against South Africa, Vicky Ostwal took five wickets. Following that, he was awarded the Man of the Match award. Ostwal has been a consistent performer for the Indian juniors, winning the Man of the Match award in the U19 Asia Cup final after picking up three wickets as India defeated Sri Lanka. Surely, one of the ten IPL franchises will make a big-money offer to the young spinner.
- Angkrish Raghuvanshi
Angkrish, the opener, is a dependable batsman. He scored 79 against Ireland and then hit a century (144 off 120) against Uganda. As a result, he will undoubtedly be one of the auction’s most sought-after names.
- Harnoor Singh
Harnoor Singh was selected for the India U-19 team for the U-19 Asia Cup after scoring the most runs in the U-19 Challenger Trophy. Singh is a Punjab-based cricketer. His father played for the U-19 Punjab team, so he comes from a cricketing family. He bats with his right hand. Harnoor has a chance to win a franchise in the IPL 2022 auction.
