The Indian Premier League recently released the list of players who have nominated themselves for the IPL 2022 auction. Among the list of all the bidders, the name of former Indian player "S Sreesanth" caught everyone's attention.
Former Indian pacer Sreesanth represented the Rajasthan Royals team in the IPL in 2013. After that game, in September 2013, the BCCI management disqualified him for a lifetime, accusing him of sports fraud. Later, the BCCI reduced the ban to seven years in 2019, resulting in Sreesanth's return to professional cricket by September 2020.
Before Sreesanth was banned, he played 44 matches in the IPL for three different teams. These included Rajasthan Royals, Kochi Tuskers Kerala, and Kings XI Punjab, which resulted in Sreesanth recording 44 wickets to his credit.
In the upcoming mega auction, Sreesanth has registered with a base price of 50 lakh, but before that, he was also nominated in the IPL 2021 auction but failed to make the shortlist. By the way, Sreesanth played for Kerala in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in the 2020-2021 season, where he scored 13 wickets in 6 innings at an average of 24.38.
The total number of registered players for the IPL 2022 auction was 1214
The IPL 2022 auction will be held on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru. The total number of registered players for this auction was 1214. Of this total, 896 Indian players and 318 foreign players. Also included in this list were 903 players not eligible to play for the team, 270 players eligible to play for the team, and 41 supporting players, and only 590 of all players will be able to go under the hammer.
However, not all famous, talented players wanted to participate in the upcoming mega auction. Cricketers like Jofra Archer, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Chris Gayle, Chris Woakes, Mitchell Starc, Sam Curran, and several other foreign players decided not to participate in IPL 2022. Hence, they did not nominate themselves. Below is a list of the competitors who presented themselves in the three highest categories.
