And we could see franchises engaging in a bidding war for them in the Mega Auction 2022. On that note, here’s a look at five Indian uncapped bowlers that can cause of bidding war in the Mega Auction 2022.
IPL 2022 Retention: 5 Indian Uncapped Bowlers Who Might Cause A Bidding War
Ravi Bishnoi played two seasons for Punjab Kings and impressed one and all in both seasons. It was quite surprising that Punjab Kings didn’t retain Bishnoi for IPL 2022. He was the second-highest wicket-taker for Punjab during the 2020 edition of IPL.
The following year, he picked the third most number of wickets despite playing only 9 matches. He picked 12 wickets at a stellar average of 19.17. There’s no denying that Ravi Bishnoi will attract heavy bids at the auction and might cause a bidding war between the franchises.
