IPL 2022 auction: 47 Australian cricketers enlisted to test their luck

47 Australian cricketers enlisted to test their luck in the two-day Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction, scheduled to commence later in the day. Test captain Pat Cummins, left-handed opener David Warner, top-order batter Steve Smith, limited-overs specialist Mitch Marsh and pace bowler Josh Hazlewood among those in the 47 are awaiting for big-ticket.

A total of 590 cricketers are up for grabs, and of those, a mind-boggling 228 are capped players, while the Australians make up the biggest overseas portion with 47 enlisted players. Australians have traditionally done well in the IPL auctions, with the likes of white-ball specialist Glenn Maxwell, pace bowler Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith earning millions in 2021. While this year, only Maxwell is the only Australian to have been retained by his franchise — Royal Challengers Bangalore — several other hotshot Aussie players, following their ICC T20 World Cup title triumph in the UAE and the recent Ashes success, are likely to make big money over the weekend.
