IPL 2022 Auction: 5 Most Overrated Players Who Will Be A Part Of The Auction
5. Chris Gayle
Chris Gayle is the first player on the list. The left-handed batsman has many batting records to his name in the Indian Premier League. Although Chris Gayle is definitely is one of the most dangerous batsmen of all time in T20 cricket, his performance in the last few IPL seasons has seen a slump.
For instance, he could only play 7 games in IPL 2020 for Punjab Kings, scoring 288 runs. In IPL 2021, he managed to score only 193 runs in 10 innings. In the last 30 IPL games, the 42-year-old has slammed only 7 half-centuries. However, due to his lucrative IPL history, Gayle will gain the limelight during IPL 2022 auction.
