Spinner is an indispensable part of cricket in India and in the sub-continent. The spinners decided the course of the match with their middle over heroics. The tweakers are known to deceive the batsman through the air and control the run-flow at the important stage of the match.

For the longest time, Mumbai suffered a lot due to inconsistent spinners in the team. The franchise used to envy other teams for having world-class spinners, however, that issue seemed to be solved with the entrance of leg-spinner Rahul Chahar in the side.

Chahar dominated the spin chart in the franchise and in no time he became a vital cog in Mumbai’s lineup. However, due to the auction, Mumbai had to release him to the auction table.

The 22-years old had a canny ability to deceive the batters with his ingenious leg-breakers. The spinner was heavily used by Mumbai Indians (MI) in the middle overs, but he can also be used at the powerplays.

Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal, is going to be a hot pick in the Tata IPL 2022 Mega Auction. The spinner has time and again proved his worth in gold.

RCB during the recent player retentions released Yuzvendra Chahal and only retained the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Mohammad Siraj and Virat Kohli.

There are high chances of Chahal returning to Mumbai Indians (MI) after seven years. It must be noted that Yuzvendra Chahal kickstarted his IPL career with Mumbai Indians in 2011.

The Haryana spinner has been one of India’s best spinners currently. He possesses all the weapons in his arsenal to destroy the opposition.

In 113 IPL matches, Chahal has scalped 139 wickets at an average of 22.28 and an economy of 7.59. Talking about his recent IPL season, despite performing dismally in phase one, Chahal managed to uproot 18 wickets in 15 matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Though the recent past hasn’t been kind to him, Yuzvendra Chahal is surely going to rebound with a massive jump in his skillset and performance. 

Mumbai would be targeting the spinner’s services if he makes himself available for the mega auction. As per the reports, Chahal is likely to break into one of the two new IPL franchises ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.

The young Indian spinner, Ravi Bishnoi, has also become a hot figure in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Bishnoi came into the picture following his heroics in the U19 World Cup where he emerged as the top wicket-taker with 17 wickets in mere 6 matches at a sensational economy of 3.48.

Owing to his sublime performance in the U19 World Cup, Punjab Kings (PBKS) acquired his services ahead of the IPL 2020. The youngster straightaway left his impression as he picked 12 wickets in 14 matches in his debut IPL season.

In the very next season, Bishnoi scalped 12 wickets in 9 matches at an impressive economy of 6.34.

Several IPL teams would require a quality spinner with a low budget and Bishnoi perfectly fits in that category. He can be acquired for a reasonable price and can be used in a variety of situations in a match.

Mumbai Indians should try to target him in the upcoming IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
