The IPL 2022 mega auction offered a promising window for all ten teams to pick the proven customers in Bangalore. The teams smartly approached the bidding battles. In some scenarios, they spent a big amount to secure the services of top players. Ishan Kishan became the most expensive player at the mega auction.
Mumbai Indians stood tall against all teams as they gave it all to secure the services of the young southpaw. MI eventually won the bidding war by signing Ishan Kishan for Rs 15.25 crore. 590 players were up for grabs in the mega auction and out of that 204 players went unsold in two days.
Many big names including Suresh Raina, Eoin Morgan, Aaron Finch, Adam Zampa, Steve Smith and other players went unsold at the auction. Meanwhile, veteran fast bowler Sreesanth was also one of the players who was not signed by any of the teams at the mega auction in Bangalore.
Sreesanth sings a motivational song after he went unsold at the mega auction
Sreesanth announced his arrival recently when he was named in the Kerala squad for Ranji Trophy 2022. The 39-year-old fast bowler who still feels plenty of cricketing action left in him enrolled himself at the mega auction for his base price of Rs 50 lakhs.
However, when the IPL auctioneer announced the fast bowler’s name, no team showed any interest to recruit him. Sreesanth who also went unsold in the last year’s auction must be feeling disappointed after no franchise showed any interest to sign him.
However, the fast bowler ensured to keep himself motivated. He even took to his official Twitter handle and then sang a motivational Hindi song to keep himself energetic. Sreesanth sang a popular Bollywood song ‘Ruk Jaana Nahi Tu Kahin Haar Ke’ which refers to “never give up”.
