5 European Players Who Can Cause A Bidding War

India are currently playing a white-ball series against West Indies. However, the focus will shift to the upcoming IPL 2022 Mega-Auction for a couple of days. The highly anticipated event is slated to take place on Saturday. From this year onwards, IPL will be a ten-team affair as two new teams have been added, namely Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans.

The 8 existing teams have already named their list of retained players, while the new teams have picked three players from the pre-auction draft. A lot of world-class players will make their presence felt in the mega-auctions. As per the list, a total of 590 players will be going under the hammer at the auctions. Of these, 370 are Indians, while 220 players are overseas.

A lot of English players are likely to fetch contracts at the IPL this year. As per a recent report, the England cricketers will be available for the entire period of IPL 2022. Thus, the franchise would look to add as many England players as possible. In this article, we take a look at 5 European players who can cause a bidding war at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.

Jonny Bairstow hasn’t been retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad for the upcoming edition of the IPL. He too will be one of the players to watch out for at the auctions.

Bairstow was the one who stepped up to the task for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first leg of the IPL 2021. While Warner failed to get going, Bairstow ensured he compensate for that. He played 7 matches in the first leg of the IPL 2021 for Sunrisers Hyderabad and scored 248 runs at an outstanding average and striker rate of 141.71 and 141.71.

Bairstow can give a rollicking start at the top of the order and can also bat in the middle-order as well. His power-hitting game should be enough for the franchises to bid heavily for him.

In his IPL career, he has played 28 matches and has managed to score 1038 runs at an average of 41.52 and a strike rate of 142.19. Bairstow has a fantastic record in IPL and one could expect him to cause a bidding war at the auctions.
