Indian Premier League will be hosting a mega auction ahead of the 2022 season which is also expected to the last of its kind. So why is it being held anyway? Well, as you are aware that the popular T20 league is expanding to 10 teams now with the addition of franchises from Ahmedabad and Lucknow from the upcoming season onwards. So to give the new entrants a fair shot at building competitive squads, the eight original franchises have been asked to keep at most four players of their choice and release the remaining.
Additionally, the two teams will also be given a chance to pick few players before the auction is held. A host of top T20 talent will be available at the auction pool.
