Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag on Saturday gave a quirky take to Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction after spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was picked by Rajasthan Royals for the upcoming season.

Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals were involved in a bidding war for Aswhin and in the end, the off-spinner was acquired by the Royals for the price of Rs 5 crores.

Ashwin will now team up with England batter Jos Buttler, whom the India spinner had ‘Mankaded’ in the 2019 season.

Sehwag shared a ‘meme’ featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi in which the former congress President had hugged the latter.

“Buttler-Ashwin…. Haha,” Sehwag shared the picture of Modi and Rahul on KOO

“Haha Ashwin to Rajasthan. Will love him plotting a mankad with Butler,” Sehwag added.

A total of 600 cricketers will go under the hammer in the auction that will be held on Saturday and Sunday.

A total of 377 Indian players and 223 overseas players are up for grabs in what promises to be an action-packed IPL 2022 Player Auction in Bengaluru
