IPL 2022 Auction: 5 Most Underrated Players Who Will Be A Part Of The Auction
5. Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is the first player on this list. Dhawan was not retained by Delhi Capitals in spite of giving a fabulous batting show for the team during the last season. The left-handed batsman slammed 587 runs in 16 matches and was the highest run-getter for the team.
With 3 half-centuries, he single-headedly took the team to victory in a few games. In the last 6 seasons, he has batted at an average above 36, except for the 2019 season when he touched 34.73. In spite of his fabulous batting performance in the tournament, Dhawan do not attract an expensive deal for himself as compared to other top players.
