KL Rahul was not retained by Punjab Kings as the franchise could not finalize a deal with the Indian batsman. He is definitely one player who will go big during the IPL 2022 auction. The right-handed batsman was the top run-getter in IPL 2020 and finished as 3rd highest run-scorer in IPL 2021.

The 29-year-old player is also a regular player in India’s national team. Every franchise will have a keen eye on him during the mega auctions.
