It is said that cricket is a sport that cannot get a place in the team on the basis of old performance for a long time. It is feared that this time the behavior that Chennai did to Suresh Raina in the auction, the same behavior may be repeated with other players in the coming times.
Dinesh Karthik will play for RCB. They were bought for 5.50 crores.
The name of Dinesh Karthik comes at the top of the list, whose career is in trouble. Last year, he scored only 149 runs in 10 matches at a simple average of 29.80 without any half-century. In 2020, playing 14 matches, only 169 runs were scored from his bat at an average of 14.08. His performance has been on a steady decline since 2018. In such a situation, if this year also he is not able to perform well for his new team Royal Challengers Bangalore, then it will be almost impossible to get his place in any team next year.
Wriddhiman Saha has been bought by Gujarat Titans in IPL this time for 1.90 crores.
Saha made just 131 in the league in 2021
Next in this list comes the name of Wriddhiman Saha. Currently embroiled in controversy and left out of the Indian team, Saha scored only 131 runs in 9 matches of the IPL last year at a poor average of 14.55. In 2020, he could play only 4 IPL matches. This time if he is not able to win Gujarat Titans with his performance, then there is every possibility of his international career as well as IPL career coming to a complete halt.
Varun Aaron could not play a single match last time
Varun Aaron was once highly rated for his speed. Then suddenly his career graph started going down. In the 2021 IPL, he did not get a chance to play a single match, but in the 3 matches played in 2020, he conceded 94 runs at an average of 11.75. If he does not do well for Gujarat Titans in 2022, then his career is bound to come to a full stop.
KKR has roped in Ajinkya Rahane. He was bought for one crore.
Ajinkya Rahane scored only 8 runs last time
Ajinkya Rahane, who was dropped from the Indian Test team due to poor form, also has a ‘do or die’ situation this time around. In IPL 2021, his bat scored 8 runs in 2 matches, while playing 9 matches in the 2020 season, he scored a total of 113 runs at an average of 14.12. This year, if he doesn’t score runs in the T20 format, we may see Rahane for the last time playing in the biggest cricket league in the world.
