IPL 2022 Auction Date, Retention Rules, Retained Players List. The IPL 2022 fever has already started with lots of entertainment, and action waiting to get on as the inclusion of two new teams will make it a blockbuster year. The number of matches has been increased and this will be the second time in history to have a 10 team – IPL after the first one came way back in 2011.

The franchises have been scratching their heads as they have just a few more days to name their retentions and they will have to make it very wiser as well. The mega auction in 2018 was a grand success and the same could be expected this year as well. With just a few more months left for the mega auction, it is time to look at IPL 2022 Auction date, retention rules, and retained players list so far.
