We are done and dusted with the Tata IPL 2022 mega auction and all the ten franchises have finalized their squad for the upcoming IPL season. It was a rollercoaster ride as far as the auction is considered which was held in Bengaluru on the 12th and 13th of February.
Many well-known names were unsold during the IPL mega auction and many players were sold for a hefty price which went under the hammer. Former Indian fastmen S Sreesanth was one of those players who was not included in any franchise during the mega auction.
The Kerala pacer entered the IPL auction at a base price of 50 lakh but none of the ten franchises showed any interest in him. After being unsold at the mega auction, the pacer shared a video on his Twitter handle singing a well known Bollywood song ‘Ruk Jaana Nahi Tu Kahin Haar ke’ (which means to never give up).
“Always grateful and always looking forward…lots of love and respect to each and every one of u.:om Nama Shivaya,” read the caption of the tweet.
Below is the video that he posted on his Twitter account.

Sreesanth was the part of Kings XI Punjab now known as Punjab Kings for the inaugural season in 2008 to 2010, and then shifted to Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the 2011 season and then made his last appearance in the IPL for Rajasthan Royals before being caught in a spot-fixing scandal during the 2013 edition which led to a ban on him.
The pacer was recently named in the Kerala squad for the upcoming Ranji Trophy season which will be played from the 17th of February.
