IPL 2022: 6 stars new teams may target after seeing T20 WC performance

David Warner and Trent Boult IPL

The IPL 2022 mega auction promises to be a once in a lifetime event. Ten teams will enter the auction room with their auction purse full of money. They will aim to prepare the best squad possible for the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League.


Eight teams were already a part of the IPL before the 2022 season. Two new teams, namely Ahmedabad and Lucknow, have joined the tournament now. As per reports, these two franchises can sign upto three players before the auction. So, the two new franchises may try to sign the following six players after seeing their performance in the T20 World Cup 2021.

1. KL Rahul

KL Rahul was the leading run-getter for the Indian cricket team in ICC T20 WC 2021. As per reports, he will leave Punjab Kings before IPL 2022. So, the two teams can target him.


2. David Warner

Australian star David Warner returned to form in the ICC T20 WC 2021. He has confirmed he will leave SRH, and thus, the new teams can go for him.

3. Trent Boult

Kiwi pacer Trent Boult picked up the highest number of wickets in the Super 12 phase of the T20 WC 2021. Since he is unlikely to be retained by MI, Boult can join one of the two new teams.

4. Anrich Nortje

South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje has become one of the top pacers in the T20 world. He took nine wickets for the Proteas while maintaining an economy rate of less than six. DC may release him, and he can be present on the wishlist of new teams.


5. Wanindu Hasaranga

Sri Lankan star Wanindu Hasaranga broke the all-time record for the most wickets in a single T20 WC. He also became the world number one T20I bowler. There is no reason why the new teams would not go for him.

6. Rassie van der Dussen

Another South African star present on this list is Rassie van der Dussen. The right-handed batter has impressed everyone with his batting and proved himself as a T20 star in the T20 WC 2021.
