The new franchise of IPL 2022 has started their search for the players before the Mega Auction which is as per the reports to be conducted in February. Ahmedabad has listed some of the players which they want to sign for their team and some well-known names are Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, star leg-spinner Rashid Khan and opening batsman Shubman Gill. The franchise kept Ishan Kishan on their list but now it seems that they don’t have a genuine interest in the Jharkand’s wicket-keeper batter. Thus, they are looking to bolster their squad by adding the Indian Test cricket team’s opener Shubman Gill in their team.
It will be interesting to see these players in a new jersey after so long years. All-rounder Hardik Pandya was serving the five-time champions Mumbai Indians for so many years and now the team hasn’t retained him due to lack of retaining options. It is very much likely that Hardik will be seen in the Ahmedabad Jersey and also he could be named as the captain of the side. SRH’s star spinner Rashid Khan too seems to be heading to another team and Ahmedabad will be more than happy to add Afghanistan’s player into their squad.
“Ahmedabad has decided on its players and accordingly informed the BCCI about their draft picks. Hardik, Rashid, and Shubman are the three choices,” a senior IPL official told PTI as reported by TOI.
The mega auction which will be conducted in February will be a very huge event as there will be a long list of talented and experienced players in the auction and it will be interesting to find out which player will go to which team.
