IPL 2022: Mumbai Indians (MI) batsman Suryakumar Yadav might have to miss out on the retention list of his franchise due to the restrictions on the capped players. The middle-order batsman will have to go under the hammer to find his new franchise if MI fails to retain him in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction either using the RTM Card or retention policy.
Yadav played consistent cricket for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the last three years. He was one of the vital cogs of MI’s batting unit. After his exploits with MI, he earned his India cap recently against England.

Here’s the three IPL Teams that can target him in the upcoming IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
3 Teams that can target Suryakumar Yadav in IPL 2022 Mega Auction:
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH):
The Sun TV Network owned Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have failed multiple times to capitalize on the start given by the openers. Due to a lack of Indian quality options, SRH has to adjust on the playing11 creating loopholes.
SRH who also failed to finish the innings on a high however the franchise can overcome this by acquiring Suryakumar Yadav in the auctions.
Yadav who performs brilliantly at number three can also provide his services down the order. He can score runs and hit the bowlers straight from ball one and can be very destructive with his range of shots.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB):
The Virat Kohli-led RCB will need the services of Suryakumar Yadav more than any other franchise. RCB definitely have quality overseas options however the lack of Indian players has always pinched them in the hour of need.
In the IPL 2021, we have seen Rajat Patidar and Shabaz Nadeem failing on most occasions. A seasoned campaigner like Suryakumar Yadav can play consistent cricket and can be brutal at times.
Punjab Kings (PBKS):
The Punjab based franchise will be hoping to acquire a couple of experienced Indian names from the upcoming IPL 2022 Mega Auctions. PBKS will make sure to reduce the pressure from the shoulders of KL Rahul.
In IPL 2021, Nicholas Pooran failed to produce a good comeback and recorded multiple low scores adding more pressure on KL to bat till deep. A batter like Suryakumar Yadav can surely reduce that pressure and can score quick runs coming at three or four number.
