Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan And Shubman Gill Set To Be Part Of Ahmedabad Franchise In IPL 2022

Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, and Shubman Gill are set to be a part of the Ahmedabad franchise for the upcoming IPL 2022 season.
The Ahmedabad franchise, which was bought last October by CVC Capital Partners (Irelia Company Pte Ltd), has also finalized its coaching staff – they will be led by former India fast bowler Ashish Nehra, and former South Africa batter and head coach Gary Kirsten.
Former England batter Vikram Solanki, who is currently Surrey’s head coach, will be the team director. This is the second IPL franchise where the trio will work together: the previous instance was at Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Hardik Pandya And Rashid Khan All Set To Play Together For Ahmedabad Franchise

Ahmedabad and Lucknow, the two new franchises participating in the IPL 2022, are yet to disclose the players they have bought but the deadline for doing so is fast approaching- January 22.  Both teams were given the same purse – INR 90 crore – the same as the existing eight franchises.
However, unlike the other teams, which could retain four players, the two new ones can buy a maximum of three players with the overseas slot limited to one. It has been learned that Ahmedabad has decided to pay both Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan the same amount – INR 15 crore.
It is also learned that Hardik Pandya is likely to take charge as Ahmedabad captain, a first experience for the allrounder in the IPL. The third player – Shubman Gill – will be paid INR 7 crore. This means the franchise will go into the auction in February with a purse of INR 53 crore.
Hardik Pandya’s rise, since he was bought as an uncapped player for a mere INR 10 lakh in 2015, has been exponential. By 2018, he had established himself as the best allrounder in India and Mumbai duly retained him as their second pick at the auction that year, paying INR 11 crore.
This is the first time Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan will play for the same team in the IPL, having previously represented Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad respectively. Hardik Pandya is a four-time title-winner. However, Hardik Pandya struggled with fitness issues over the last two IPLs and did not bowl at all in this period. His batting, too, hasn’t been as effective as before.

That forced Mumbai to look in a different direction as they retained the in-form Suryakumar Yadav, who has proven he can bat and accelerate at any position. Hardik Pandya is currently focussing on regaining complete fitness and has not been part of any of the Indian white-ball squads since the 2021 T20I World Cup.
As for Rashid Khan, the Afghanistan legspinner became a big talking point immediately after Sunrisers Hyderabad decided to retain Kane Williamson, who will be full-time captain from IPL 2022, along with the uncapped Jammu & Kashmir pairing of Abdul Samad and Umran Malik.
In 2017, Sunrisers Hyderabad bought Rashid Khan for INR 4 crore and, a year later, they retained him for INR 9 crore. Remarkably, Rashid Khan featured in all 76 matches played by Sunrisers Hyderabad since his debut, picking up 93 wickets at an economy rate of 6.33. Only Jasprit Bumrah has taken more wickets (104) than Rashid Khan in the last five IPL seasons.
Sunrisers Hyderabad wanted to keep Rashid Khan, so they told him that he would be their second pick behind Kane Williamson. The talks got derailed thereafter, which freed Rashid Khan to weigh up his options, including going into the IPL 2022 mega auction.

Shubman Gill Also Set To Be A Part Of Ahmedabad Franchise In IPL 2022

For Shubman Gill, this will be his second team in the IPL having been picked by Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 auction for INR 1.8 crore. The 22-year old, who has already played 10 Tests and three ODIs, has been earmarked as one of the brightest young talents of this decade, and at one point was even looked upon as a future leader by the Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, the Kolkata Knight Riders had several other options when it came to the retention and Shubman Gill had to be left out. Shubman Gill was a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and he was let go by the franchise as the franchise retained Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell instead.
Ahmedabad’s third choice Ishan Kishan didn’t work out and they zeroed in on Shubman Gill, who could also be seen as a potential captaincy candidate.

Priyam Garg Advices U19 Indian Players Ahead Of WC 2022 To Not Lose Focus And Follow Process

Priyam Garg, who was the captain of the India U19 team in the previous edition of the tournament, has a piece of advice for the Indian Colts on how to approach the tournament. Former Indian cricketer Hrishikesh Kanitkar is the current head coach of India’s U19 team. Hrishikesh Kanitkar said the team needs to focus on the World Cup and not bother about IPL 2022 auctions.

India Under-19 team will kick off their World Cup campaign on Saturday as the Yash Dhull-led side plays against South Africa U19 team at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. India U19 team have won four World Cup titles since winning for the first time in the year 2000 and followed the success in 2008, 2012 & 2018.

Priyam Garg: U19 World Cup Is A Shortcut Before Playing For India But Urges Players Not To Get Distracted By Fame And Attention

As India begins its ICC Under-19 World Cup campaign in the West Indies, the skipper at the previous edition says the tournament should be treated as a stepping stone to reach higher levels and advises the current batch not to be distracted by the sudden fame and attention that comes their way.

“It’s hard not to be nostalgic about the Under-19 World Cup. I remember our batch played continuous cricket throughout the year before the World Cup. We had series in South Africa, Sri Lanka and India. So preparation-wise, we were prepared mentally. We had gained some experience before the World Cup. It was a proud moment for me when I was handed the task to lead the team. It was a big platform and we tried hard to bring back the crown, but couldn’t,” said Priyam Garg.

“India’s under-19 players get similar attention and fame like the senior cricketers, especially as the World Cup gets closer. It’s the first time we all face such a situation where everyone recognises us, everyone talks about us. It’s the biggest challenge for an 18-year-old kid, who is trying to find a route to reach the top level,” said Priyam Garg.

“Sadly, a player doesn’t get such fame when playing for their state teams. And the problem starts when a player unknowingly expects such fame permanently, which is never going to be the case. I feel those who can face that situation calmly and keep their head down, will find success ahead,” said Priyam Garg.

“After the under-19 level, the cricketers get to the senior state level where they have to match the performance of players who are more mature than them. First-class cricket is another big challenge,” said Priyam Garg.

“Luckily, my family doesn’t understand much about cricket, and my father only told me to grab the opportunity. I remember when it was announced that I will captain the India under-19 team, I was in Bengaluru but back home, we had visitors, media, and well-wishers coming to greet our family. There were journalists coming on a daily basis to interview my family; it’s something none of us had ever experienced,” said Priyam Garg.

Priyam Garg has played 19 games for his franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad and scored 205 runs averaging 14.64.

Priyam Garg’s Aim Was To Represent Senior Indian Team One Day

He lays emphasis on working hard and not deviating from the schedule, not taking their eye off the ultimate goal – which should be playing for the senior national team. Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav will lead the Uttar Pradesh squad in the Ranji Trophy 2022. Karn Sharma has been named as the vice-captain of the squad which included the likes of Shivam Mavi and Priyam Garg.

“I was lucky to have played Ranji Trophy before, so my aim was clear from Day One. I have to represent the senior Indian team one day. Around the time of the Under-19 World Cup, there was also an IPL auction to be held but it never hit my mind because my thought process was clear. Once I returned, it was a similar kind of buzz. The phone kept ringing, well-wishers came calling. During all this, players have to keep their priorities right.”

“For instance, even when I was picked as captain of the under-19 team, I didn’t change my schedule – my gym session, nets session, rest and sleep early. Only in my free time, did I take the phone in my hand. The day a player compromises on this routine, I feel the distraction starts, the chances of making progress go down, following the process is very important. Sleeping on time and getting up early is the key.”

“Like me, these current players will also make temporary friends, social media will attract them, agents will run behind them, the world will run behind you. My only advice to this under-19 team is to think about the long term and make the best decision from that perspective. Under-19 is the age that needs maturity, but we are very immature. So, take help from your family.”

“Don’t lose focus, follow the process, never compromise on your ethics. Be prepared to hear applause and brickbats, we live in a country that has billions of people. So don’t expect that everyone is your well-wisher. Now with the IPL auction coming up, everyone will want to be part of the glamorous league. It has fame, money, everything.”

“Once you play for your country, these things will come automatically. Decide an off-day where you want to do things outside cricket. Players can judge that. Under-19 could be a shortcut to playing for India but remember only work ethic, performance, and hard work will help you remain at the top. So keep working hard, even if you don’t find success in this World Cup.”

Priyam Garg played 14 games in his debut IPL season in 2020 and scored one half-century managing 133 runs in 14 games. Captain of the India U19 2020 World Cup, young Priyam Garg led the team to the finals of the tournament. Known to be a gutsy batsman springing up valuable performances in India’s U19 campaign, he was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for 1.9 crores.

David Warner Urged Critics To Empathize With Virat Kohli Who Is Going Through A Lean Patch In Int’l Cricket

David Warner urged critics to empathize with Virat Kohli saying that all cricketers are going through a bubble life and that he has just had a baby.

A lot of people have had their say on Virat Kohli’s ongoing lean patch, the highlighting stat of which has been his century drought of 777 days in international cricket. But fellow cricketer and Australian opener David Warner reserved the ultimate praise for the Indian Test captain, urging critics to “understand his situation”.

David Warner Urged Critics To Empathize With Virat Kohli

Talking to journalist Boria Majumdar, David Warner gave his opinion on Virat Kohli’s poor run of form in international cricket, saying that the veteran Indian batsman has earned the right to fail and go through a rough trot after achieving so much in the sport. He then urged critics to empathize with Virat Kohli saying that all cricketers are going through a bubble life.

“A lot of people talk about Virat Kohli’s form over the last couple of years. We have gone through a pandemic. He has just had a baby. We only see how well he has done. You are allowed to fail. You are allowed to fail. You have earned the right to fail when you are so good at what you do.

“People say Steve Smith doesn’t score a century in his fourth innings because stats say he scores a century every four innings. He is human. You are allowed to have a rough trot. That is why there are a lot more pressure on those guys. But would not feel the pressure, I guarantee that,” Warner said.

Virat Kohli is presently part of the Test series against South Africa where the Dean Elgar-led home team has leveled the series with a seven-wicket win in Johannesburg.

Virat Kohli had missed the Test match owing to an upper back spasm following which KL Rahul was named as the captain. The 33-year-old is expected to return for the third and final Test match in Cape Town which begins on January 11.  David Warner, on the other hand, is presently part of the Ashes series at home where the Pat Cummins-led Australian side has taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-Test series.

David Warner And Virat Kohli Are Having Contrasting Runs In International Cricket

Notable that despite the Indian test team achieving new heights in the past year, Virat Kohli didn’t contribute much with the bat. He hasn’t scored a century in any form of cricket since November 2019. Since Jan 2020, he scored only 652 runs in 25 Test innings with an average of 26.08 which included only five fifties.

Meanwhile, things are going back on track for David Warner who was sacked from captaincy for his IPL franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last season. But since then, he has turned things around as the left-hander was given ‘Man of the Tournament award in the T20 World Cup held in UAE. Then he also scored a couple of 90s in the Ashes as Australia is currently leading the series by 3-0.

David Warner is the top run-scorer in the IPL history so far among the foreign players. The left-hander has notched 5449 runs from 150 matches at an average of 41.59 and a strike rate of 139.96. Since being dropped by his Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad in September, the 35-year-old rebounded to take the Player of the Tournament award during Australia’s T20 World Cup triumph.

David Warner scored 289 runs in seven matches for Australia in T20I World Cup. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73. He now sits third on the runs list in the ongoing Ashes series, with 270 runs at an average of 54. He registered scores of 94, 95, 13, 38, and 30 so far in 4 Tests.

Alviro Petersen Shocked Over Quinton de Kock’s Sudden Test Retirement After Playing 54 Tests

Alviro Petersen, the former South Africa opener is shocked with Quinton de Kock’s sudden retirement from Test cricket and feels more players might follow in the footsteps of the wicketkeeper-batter in the near future.

At just 29 years of age and having played 54 Tests, Quinton de Kock announced his retirement from the traditional format at the end of the opening Test against India, which the Proteas lost by 113 runs at SuperSport Park on Thursday. Cricket fans reacted in shock after South Africa’s Quinton de Kock announced his retirement from Test cricket on Thursday.

Alviro Petersen Shocked By Quinton de Kock’s Sudden Retirement From Tests

Quinton de Kock would, however, be available for ODIs and T20s in the future. Quinton de Kock had scored 34 runs in the first innings of the Centurion Test, followed by 21 in the second. Quinton de Kock played 54 Test matches for South Africa, scoring 3,300 runs with six centuries and 22 half-centuries. He also effected 232 dismissals (221 catches and 11 stumpings) behind the wicket.

“To be honest, I am a bit shocked by his decision,” said Alviro Petersen, who played in 36 Tests for South Africa, scoring five centuries, largely as opening partner to Graeme Smith.

“During the lunch break of day five in Centurion, I noticed that he was not quite 100 percent because Quinny is a player who likes to play his shots,” Alviro Petersen was quoted.

“Often when there is stuff happening with family or you are on a long tour, one foot is always on the plane and I had the sense that with him it was almost like one foot was already at home.”

Alviro Petersen was a right-handed opening batsman who could not do justice to his batting talent. The cool-headed batsman made a relatively late entry to the Test cricket at the age of 30, nine years after his professional debut, and could cement his place in the Proteas squad only after 2012.

However, Alviro Petersen suffered in his career because of inconsistency and tough competition from Jacques Rudolph for the opening slot. The opener, by all means, deserved to play more than the 36 Tests and 21 ODIs he played for South Africa.

Quinton de Kock Will However Continue Playing In The White Ball Formats For The Proteas With An Eye On Franchise Based T20 Leagues

A former Test captain, Quinton de Kock said he will continue playing in the white-ball formats for the Proteas, with a lot of focus on franchise-based T20 leagues. The former Mumbai Indians man should have been away from national duty on paternity leave for the last 2 Tests but has now decided to call it a day from the longest format of cricket.

“I am surprised but you can also understand that all the lucrative T20 leagues around the world and The Hundred (franchise 100-ball cricket tournament in the UK) now have changed the mindset of players,” Petersen said.

“In the past, Test cricket was the pinnacle and slowly that is being changed with guys looking after their financial wellbeing. Priorities have changed and he won’t struggle to get a T20 or The Hundred contract.”

Quinton de Kock has featured in Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Mumbai Indians squad in the IPL. Quinton de Kock’s retirement means South Africa will have a new wicket-keeper in their playing XI in the last two games of the ongoing Test series against India. The Proteas have Kyle Verreynne and Ryan Rickelton as the other two wicket-keeping options in the squad.

David Warner Wants To Beat India In India And Win Ashes In England

David Warner, Australia’s opening batter on Wednesday said after Australia retained the Ashes, that it would be nice if his side manages to beat India in India as they are yet to achieve this particular feat recently.

The veteran opener also hinted towards having another crack in trying to win the Ashes in England. In 2019, the left-handed batter was out of form in England as he was continuously dismissed by Stuart Broad. In the 2019 Ashes series, David Warner scored only 95 runs in 10 innings as fast bowler Stuart Broad got him out for fun.

David Warner: It Would Be Nice To Beat India In India

David Warner, who turned 35 in October this year during the T20 World Cup, where he won the player-of-the-tournament award in Australia’s title triumph, admitted that he is not done yet.

“We still haven’t beaten India in India. That would be nice to do. And obviously, England away, we had a drawn series in 2019, but hopefully, if I managed to get that chance and opportunity, I might think about going back,” Warner was quoted as saying.

David Warner also said that he sees age as no barrier, and he lauded England pacer James Anderson for setting really high benchmark in Test cricket.

“I think James Anderson sets the benchmark for older guys these days. We look up to him as we’re getting on in our days. But for me, it’s about performing to the best of my ability and putting runs on the board. In the first two Tests, I actually look like a proper batsman, it’s almost like I’ve played my career the other way and had to knuckle down and respect the bowling and the line and lengths that they were bowling and obviously, the hundred eluded me,” said Warner.

David Warner has played 13 and eight Tests across three series in England and two in India, respectively. But he has a poor record in both the countries, averaging 26 and 24 respectively without a century. He would turn 37 by the next Ashes trip to England, but for the left-handed opener, age is just a number.

David Warner Feels In Good Touch

David Warner has hinted that he might want another crack at winning an Ashes series in England in 2023.

“I feel in good touch. As I said, I was out of runs not out of form, so hopefully, I can put some more numbers on the board leading into this new year,” he added.

Pacer Scott Boland took six wickets in the second innings as Australia defeated England by an innings and 14 runs in the third Ashes Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday. With this win, Australia regained the Ashes 2021/22 as the hosts have gained an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

After 89 Tests and a decade at the highest level, David Warner has little left to prove but the swashbuckling lefthander still has a couple of items on his bucket list.

David Warner is the top run-scorer in the IPL history so far among the foreign players. The left-hander has notched 5449 runs from 150 matches at an average of 41.59 and a strike rate of 139.96.

Since being dropped by his Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad in September, the 35-year-old rebounded to take the Player of the Tournament award during Australia’s T20 World Cup triumph. David Warner scored 289 runs in seven matches for Australia in T20I World Cup. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73.

He now sits third on the runs list in the ongoing Ashes series, with 240 at an average of 60. The New South Wales-born David Warner also averages a mere 24.80 on the slow and low pitches in India. Moreover, Australia has lost four series on the trot in India.

Dale Steyn In Line To Be Roped In As Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Bowling Coach In IPL 2022

Dale Steyn is set for a new inning in the forthcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 as Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have approached him to be their bowling coach. Unless the talks fall through at the last minute, the franchise is expected to make an announcement next week. Dale Steyn, who has played 95 IPL games for several franchises, had announced retirement from all forms of cricket, including franchise competitions, earlier in August.

Regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time with 439 wickets in 93 Tests at an average of 22.95, the South African will be working alongside Tom Moody, who is going to take over as the head coach of the SRH franchise.

Dale Steyn Approached By Sunrisers Hyderabad To Be Their Bowling Coach

Dale Steyn, who also played 125 ODIs (196 wickets) and 47 T20Is (64 wickets), has represented Deccan Chargers, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Gujarat Lions, and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL and has returned 97 wickets in the league. Dale Steyn, a veteran of 95 IPL matches and 97 wickets, has been a part of the league since its inaugural year. Dale Steyn’s last IPL appearance came in 2020.

Dale Steyn did not respond to a message but an IPL official, in the knowledge of the developments, confirmed negotiations. It is also likely that Hemang Badani, a former India and Tamil Nadu all-rounder, will join the coaching staff of the Hyderabad team. Hemang Badani represented India in four Tests and 40 ODIs between 2000 to 2004.

The franchise needed new personnel in the coaching staff after head coach Trevor Bayliss and batting coach Brad Haddin quit after the 2021 season. The franchise has also had to part ways with long-standing mentor VVS Laxman, who took up an assignment with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Tom Moody, SRH’s director of cricket last year, has been re-designated as head coach.

Sunrisers Hyderabad had a forgettable IPL 2021 season as they finished at the bottom of the tally to break their unbeaten playoff qualification streak running since 2016. The upcoming edition of the league is set to have ten teams as two new franchises – Lucknow and Ahmedabad – have been added to the existing eight.

The edition will be preceded by a mega auction, likely to be held in late December or early January. Ahead of the same, SRH has retained only three players, skipper Kane Williamson and uncapped Jammu Kashmir talents, Abdul Samad and Umran Malik.

BCCI Authorities Silent On CVC Capitals Buying Ahmedabad Team As CVC Capitals Endorses Betting

Meanwhile, the wait on the Ahmedabad franchise, bought by CVC Sports, continues. Although there is an air of optimism for a possible settlement soon, the BCCI authorities have been inexplicably silent on the matter. It is learned that a retired judge of the Supreme Court has been consulted and his advice is being awaited.

CVC Capital

One notable development that has come to light recently is that the expert advice has gone against awarding the franchise to the second-highest bidder, should the BCCI decide to cancel the allocation of the franchise to the American investment firm.

The BCCI, apparently, will have to go for rebidding, which may offset a lot of the IPL planning. In a case where the BCCI cancels CVC Capitals‘ association with the league over their investments in betting businesses, the board would need to roll out a fresh tender to invite new bids. In such a case, the plans of the 2022 edition of the league could also take a hit.

David Warner Expecting To Be A Part Of The IPL 2022 Mega Auction

David Warner is the top run-scorer in the IPL history so far among the foreign players. The left-hander has notched 5449 runs from 150 matches at an average of 41.59 and a strike rate of 139.96. However, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Suresh Raina are leading the charts in the list of all-time leading run-scorers in the IPL.

In fact, the Australia opener has gotten the most half-centuries in the IPL, as many as 50. After playing a few seasons for the Delhi Daredevils, now Delhi Capitals, he went on to ply his trade for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. David Warner tasted a chunk of his IPL success for the Orange Army and won the Orange Cap quite a few times. In 2016, he also captained them to their maiden IPL title, beating Virat Kohli’s RCB.

David Warner Had A Poor IPL 2021 For Which He Was Stripped Of Captaincy And Lost His Place In The Sunrisers Hyderabad Team

Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner was released by the franchise despite his stellar campaign in the T20I World Cup 2021, where he bagged the Player of the Tournament award for 289 runs in seven matches for Australia. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73.

However, 2021 turned out to be a season equivalent to a nightmare for him. Neither could he shine as a skipper, nor could he weave magic with the bat in hand. In the first leg of the IPL in India, David Warner lost captaincy after which Kane Williamson was appointed as their skipper.

Thereafter, David Warner also lost his place from the eleven after which Jason Roy was included. Jason Roy played 5 IPL games for SRH in IPL 2021 and scored 150 runs averaging 30. SRH had a woeful campaign in IPL 2021, winning only three matches and finishing at the bottom of the points table.

David Warner Thanked SRH Franchise And Is Expecting To Be A Part Of The IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Despite being a stalwart for them, the Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t retain David Warner, quite expectedly. In the meantime, David Warner also opened up on his future in the cash-rich tournament. One of the fans, recently, asked him about his plans regarding the T20 league.

Warner bro what’s up about IPL,” the fan wrote.

The veteran Australian opener reverted and said that he’s expecting to be a part of the mega auction.

“Auction I guess,” Warner replied.

Earlier, SRH posted a message, bidding farewell to their players. David Warner didn’t miss out on dropping in his words on the social media platform.

“Thanks to all of you for your support over the years, up and downs, my family and I can’t stress enough how much we appreciated the love and passion you showed towards us and the team. Candice and I truly wish all the fans the very best for the future and hope whoever you wish to support the best. Love the Warner’s,” Warner said while responding to a post by SRH.

Last week, SRH retained Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. SRH paid Rs 14 crores to New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson followed by Rs 4 crores each to uncapped Jammu and Kashmir talents Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. Meanwhile, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were also released along with Rashid Khan.

Robin Uthappa Believes Rashid Khan Will Fetch Above INR 16 Crore In IPL 2022

Rashid Khan is expected to create history as franchises, including Lucknow and Ahmedabad, would be keen to buy the world-class leg-spinner, after being released by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) before IPL 2022 auctions.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) releasing Rashid Khan ahead of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 remains to be one of the biggest talking points in world cricket. Rashid Khan, who has single-handedly won matches for the Orange Army, reportedly wanted to be retained as SRH’s No. 1 player. However, the team management went for Kane Williamson – who will lead the side after David Warner was released.

Rashid Khan Will Fetch Above INR 16 Crore Guesses Robin Uthappa

With Rashid Khan in the auction pool for IPL 2022 mega auctions, cricket fans can be rest assured of history being created by the Afghanistan spinner as every franchise, including Lucknow and Ahmedabad, will go deep into their pockets to buy him.

On the IPL retention day, soon after the retentions lists were announced, senior Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa was asked to guess an amount Rashid Khan would fetch at the auction. Robin Uthappa had represented Chennai Super Kings in the previous edition of the tournament.

“Well and truly above 16 crores,” Robin Uthappa told Star Sports.

It remains to be seen whether Rashid Khan goes into the mega auction or the two new franchises, who can buy three players each from the auction pool till December 25. But, whatever is the case, there’s no doubt that Rashid Khan would fetch a huge amount.

SRH retained three players in Kane Williamson (14 cr), Abdul Samad (4 cr), and Umran Malik (4 cr). SRH also ended its association with David Warner – who had guided them to their maiden IPL title in 2016.

In the UAE leg of IPL 2021, David Warner was abruptly sacked, and Kane Williamson led the squad. The exact reason behind what went wrong between SRH and David Warner is not yet known.

Rashid Khan has been SRH’s best bowler since joining the team back in 2017. His numbers in the IPL stand at a staggering 93 wickets from 76 games at an astonishing economy rate of 6.33.

Rashid Khan, who picked up 18 wickets in 14 matches in the last edition, has consistently turned heads with his bowling exploits in the IPL. Maintaining a good economy of 6.69, he was the seventh-best bowler in the Purple Cap standings last season.

Overall, Rashid Khan has scalped 93 wickets in 76 matches for SRH at an economy of 6.33. Only Bhuvneshwar Kumar (142 wickets), Sandeep Sharma (112 wickets), and Ashish Nehra (106 wickets) have a better wicket-taking record for the franchise than him.

SRH paid Rs 14 crores to New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson followed by Rs 4 crores each to uncapped Jammu and Kashmir talents Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. Meanwhile, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were also released along with Rashid Khan.

KL Rahul And Shreyas Iyer Are Also Expected To Acquire Big Bucks At IPL 2022 Mega Auctions After Being Released By Punjab Kings And Delhi Capitals Respectively

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan is not the only big name to be a part of the auction pool as several overseas players in David Warner, Kagiso Rabada, Faf du Plessis, Jonny Bairstow, Marcus Stoinis, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock are up for grabs at the auction.

Among Indian players, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have parted ways with Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC), respectively, and are also expected to fetch huge sums from the auction pool. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) also released Shubman Gill and might want to buy back the stylish opener at the auction.

David Warner Thrives On Criticism, Says Aaron Finch

David Warner might be a polarizing figure, but the aggressive opening batsman is rarely boring with his batting, and his heroics for Australia at the recently concluded Twenty20 World Cup signalled he is back to his explosive best.

Now aged 35 years, the larger-than-life opener David Warner boasts an average just shy of 50 from his 86 Tests, with his swashbuckling presence able to turn a game into its head.

David Warner’s Record In Australia Is Feared: James Anderson

Even England pace bowler and fellow veteran James Anderson, who will go eyeball to eyeball with his old foe when the Ashes 2021/22 begins on December 8 in Brisbane, has grudging respect.

“We’ve played so much cricket against David Warner, we know you can never say you’re actually on top of him — he’s that good of a batter, he’s got that much quality,” Anderson said.

“His record in Australia is ridiculous, so we know it’s going to be a different animal to the one we faced in 2019 in our summer.”

An attacking left-hander, David Warner, will feel he has unfinished business after a miserable Ashes, the last of which came on English soil in 2019 where he tallied just 95 runs at an average of only 9.5 in 5 Tests. Stuart Broad was his nemesis, dismissing him seven times. But as James Anderson alluded to, his form in Australia is enviable.

David Warner has scored 4,551 of his 7,311 Test runs at home, smacking 18 centuries at an average of 63.20 from his 45 Tests, plundering the highest score of unbeaten 335.

David Warner Is Important Batsman At The Top Of The Batting Order: Greg Chappell

Former Australian captain Greg Chappell warned that he should never be underestimated.

“Many had written him off before the T20 World Cup, only to have him prove how important he is at the top of the order,” he said, referring to Warner finding form again in leading Australia to the title last month.

“I think he is even more important in the Test line-up,” added Chappell.

“A skilful, fast-scoring opening batsman can be invaluable in setting up the game. Teams with aggressive openers cause opposition captains and bowlers to toss and turn at night.”

David Warner made a modest debut in Brisbane 10 years ago but then carried his bat with a career-defining century in his second game at Hobart to signal his arrival. He went on to establish himself as one of the best all-format openers in the world before it all came crashing down and his reputation was trashed.

David Warner was cast as the villain in the infamous “Sandpaper-gate” ball-tampering scandal against South Africa in 2018, having conspired with Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith to alter the ball during the third Test in Cape Town. He was then widely seen as a central figure in the cultural crisis that engulfed Australian cricket.

He was stripped of the vice-captaincy and banned from ever holding a leadership role again in the team besides being banned for a year. David Warner served a 12-month ban before being called up again and promptly picked up where he left off, enjoying a prolific one-day World Cup before his poor Ashes series in 2019 that again had the critics writing him off.

But in typical fashion, he bounced back emphatically by scoring an epic unbeaten 335 against Pakistan in Adelaide later that year.

Another lean spell this year cost him his place on his Indian Premier League team Sunrisers Hyderabad, but once more, he proved the doubters wrong with his 2021 T20I World Cup exploits. Aaron Finch, the skipper of Australia’s triumphant T20 team, said David Warner thrived on criticism.

“Can’t believe people wrote him off. That’s when he plays his best cricket. It was almost like poking the bear.”

Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner has confirmed the franchise has released him despite his stellar campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021, where he bagged the Player of the Tournament award for 289 runs in seven matches for Australia. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73.

Rashid Khan And KL Rahul Not Retained By Their Respective Franchises For IPL 2022; Reasons Revealed

Rashid Khan – the Afghan leg spinner who was not retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings who couldn’t retain keeper-batsman KL Rahul were two of the major talking points coming out of Tuesday evening retentions ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. Both non-retentions have much more to them than what meets the eye.

Having to release Rashid Khan, one of the leading bowlers in the T20 format, was indeed a difficult negotiation. As one franchisee insider said, letting go of Rashid Khan is akin to Royal Challengers Bangalore releasing Virat Kohli, or Mumbai Indians releasing Rohit Sharma. However, it didn’t seem this straightforward when agents from both parties were involved in an intense war of price tags.

Rashid Khan Wanted To Get Back Into The Auction Pool: SRH CEO

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) announced the 3 retentions shockingly ahead of IPL 2022, with Rashid Khan not being retained. The ace leg-spinner from Afghanistan has decided to move into the player auction instead of being retained by the IPL 2016 champions.

SRH has retained New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson as their skipper. Uncapped youngsters Abdul Samad and Umran Malik, too, have been retained by the franchise.

Announcing SRH’s retention list on Star Sports, the franchise’s CEO K Shanmugam mentioned that Rashid Khan was a part of their plans. However, Mr. K Shanmugam stated that it was the player’s choice to get back into the auction pool. The decision was respected and acknowledged by the franchise.

Mr K Shanmugam said: “It’s a difficult decision but if a player wants to be in the auction because of the price, we definitely respect the decision. We will try and match him in (terms of) the price and see if we can pick him up in the auction”.

Rashid Khan’s prowess in the T20 format is not unknown. However, he remains one of only four players to have scalped 400 or more wickets. Hence, a bidding war is expected for him in the IPL player auction. This, of course, provided none of the two new teams from Lucknow or Ahmedabad pick Rashid Khan up in a draft prior to the auction.

As previously reported, the SRH team, which had first bought Rashid Khan in the 2017 auction for Rs 4 crore and then used the Right To Match (RTM) card in the 2018 mega auction, wanted to keep the spinner as their No 2 retention. However, it would have meant that Rashid Khan would be entitled to a fee of Rs 11 crore, which is Rs 2 crore more than his current salary.

After initially refusing to be the second retention, Rashid Khan apparently relented but later reneged. SRH says they still have a good equation with the player but not as much with a London-based agent who was playing hardball with the franchise.

The franchise might not have heard back from Rashid Khan after that, but they still hope to buy him in the auction – that is, if one of the two new teams, Ahmedabad and Lucknow, doesn’t rope him in first.

KL Rahul Was Tried To Be Retained By Punjab Kings, But He Wanted To Go Into The IPL 2022 Auction: Ness Wadia

PBKS, in turn, failed to hold on to KL Rahul, whom they had appointed captain keeping long-term goals in mind. The franchise co-owner Ness Wadia did not hide his disappointment.

“He was our captain, we tried our best (to retain Rahul). We wanted him to stay but he wanted to go into the auction. He had different plans,” Wadia said on Tuesday night (November 30).

KL Rahul is understood to be headed for Lucknow.

“We have retained Mayank and Arshdeep who were part of our strategy. In terms of bowling, we are confident Arshdeep will represent India soon. It is too early to say if Mayank will be captain but he is a talented and committed player.

“Our first step was the retention and we will decide what is best for the franchise in terms of captaincy,” Wadia said adding, “Punjab Kings have not done as well as it should have done. We have plans for the next season to ensure better performance. Whatever we need to do we will do to improve and we are looking forward to having a right balance for the side.”

Elsewhere, it was a surprise that Royal Challengers Bangalore left out Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the most consistent performers for the franchise over the years. It is learned that Yuzvendra Chahal may not have agreed to be the No 3 retention, which would have entitled him to only Rs 7 crore. A bigger amount at the auction table is surely a possibility, for which he left RCB.

One of the most expected retentions was of Venkatesh Iyer by Kolkata Knight Riders who, in a span of two months, became an elite player after performing well in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, managing 370 runs which led to his maiden India call-up. The absence of England’s Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer from the Rajasthan Royals’ list. Kumar Sangakkara strove to explain a part of it, saying Jofra Archer’s fitness was an issue.

Tuesday (November 30) saw pre-existing IPL franchises announce their list of retained players ahead of the 2022 season. The usual suspects Rohit Sharma of MI, Virat Kohli of RCB, and MS Dhoni of CSK have all been retained by their teams.
It is worth noting that both Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have taken a pay cut in comparison to the previous three-year cycle. Virat Kohli will now draw INR 15 crore, as opposed to INR 17 crore earlier. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni’s salary is now INR 12 crore, having drawn INR 15 crore before.
Ravindra Jadeja has been retained by defending champions CSK as their highest-paid player at INR 16 crore. Some of the most notable Indian names to have not been retained by their teams include Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, and Hardik Pandya.
