Joe Root gives up the offer to be in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Joe Root is letting go of the offer to be in an IPL mega auction as the player wants to utilize his energy in reviving England’s test team as they just encountered a massive defeat against Australia.

English Cricketer Joe Root decides to give away the offer of being a part of the IPL mega auction as the player wants to focus his time and energy on his Test team as they just underwent a defeat against Australia.

One of Cricket’s finest modern players, English skipper Joe Root is yet to play at IPL (Indian Premier League) remaining unsold in the 2018 auction.

Last week, the 31-year-old said that he was considering being a part of the IPL mega auction but would play in the Tournament unless it does not divert him from his Test Cricket career.

After England loses miserably against Australia at the Fifth Ashes Test 0-4 on Sunday, the wait to see Root in the League increased as he decided to give his time to the England Test team.

Joe Root at the post-match conference said that there is a lot required for the Team that needs all my energy. Joe Root is ready to give up any offer when it comes to his country’s Test Cricket as he cares about it and is willing to progress the team where they would like to see.

After England’s disappointing performances in Test Cricket this past year, it has led to questions regarding Root’s captaincy. Joe Root also expresses his wish to continue his captaincy for the English red ball game.

“It’s very difficult when you get beaten as heavily as we have done on this tour to convince people I m the right man. But I can tell you one thing for sure- as long as I have the opportunity to captain this team, I will throw everything into it,” said Joe Root to PTI as reported by TOI.

The IPL has upgraded to 10 teams including two new teams, Ahmedabad and Lucknow this year, and the mega auction for the coming season is held on February 12 and 13 in Bangalore.
