The IPL 2022 Mega Auction is now done and dusted. All teams have been made and mostly all bases are covered. With that being said, what will be the probable 11s of the teams. The IPL 2022 will be likely played in the 4 grounds in and around Mumbai and Pune. The pitches have turn and bounce on offer. So, how are the teams looking? Here is a look: 

Mumbai Indians IPL 2022 Teams: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Rohit Sharma Batter Rahul Buddhi Batter 
Ishan Kishan Batter/Keeper Hrithik Shokeen Batter 
Suryakumar Yadav Batter Aryan Juyal Keeper 
Anmolpreet Singh Batter Luvnith Sisodia All-Rounder 
Kieron Pollard All-Rounder Fabian Allen All-Rounder 
Jofra Archer All-Rounder Riley Meredith Fast Bowler 
N Tilak Verma All-Rounder Jaydev Unadkat Fast Bowler 
Dewald Brevis Batter Jasprit Bumrah Fast Bowler 
Sanjay Yadav All-Rounder Tymal Mills Fast Bowler 
Tim David All-Rounder Daniel Sams Fast Bowler 
Arshad Khan All-Rounder Mayank Markande Spinner 
Ramandeep Singh All-Rounder Murugan Ashwin Spinner 

MI Expected Playing XI: 

Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Anmolpreet Singh, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, N Tilak Verma, Daniel Sams, Mayank Markande, Tymal Mills/Riley Meredith, Jasprit Bumrah. 

It is exciting to see Mumbai invest in Tilak Verma, a young prospect! IMG SRC: CricTracker.

General Thoughts: Absence of an experienced middle-order batsman. The top order is very solid. Picking Archer was an outstanding move. Fast bowling looks settled. 


Chennai Super Kings IPL 2022 Team: 

Player Name Position  Player Name Position 
Ruturaj Gaikwad Batter Rajvardhan Hangergekar All-Rounder 
Robin Uthappa Batter Prashant Solanki All-Rounder 
Moeen Ali All-Rounder Dwaine Pretorious All-Rounder 
Mahendra Singh Dhoni Batter/Keeper Devon Conway Batter 
Ravindra Jadeja All-Rounder Mitchell Santner All-Rounder 
Dwayne Bravo All-Rounder Adam Milne Batter 
Ambati Rayudu Batter/Keeper Shivam Dube All-Rounder 
Deepak Chahar Bowler Hari Nishant Batter 
KM Asif Bowler N Jagadeesan Batter 
Subranshu Senapati Batter Chris Jordan  All-Rounder 
Tushar Deshpande Bowler Bhagat Verma All-Rounder 
Mukesh Chaudhary Batter Simarjeet Singh All-Rounder 
Maheesh Teekshana Bowler   

CSK Expected Playing XI: 

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Adam Milne/Chris Jordan, Tushar Deshpande/ KM Asif. 

General Thoughts: 

A good team all-in-all. Just one loophole is a backup for Deepak Chahar. Deepak will be accompanied by Tushar Deshpande or Asif. But MSD has always got out the best in young players. Middle-order has a lot of experience. Teekshana could be X-Factor. Chennai has to be rewarded by saying that it is one of the most balanced IPL 2022 Teams.

Punjab Kings IPL 2022 Teams: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Mayank Agarwal Batter Raj Angad Bawa All-Rounder 
Shikhar Dhawan Batter Sandeep Sharma Bowler 
Kagiso Rabada Bowler Liam Livingstone All-Rounder 
Arshdeep Singh Bowler Prerak Mankad Batter 
Jonny Bairstow Batter/Keeper Odean Smith All-Rounder 
Rahul Chahar Bowler Nathan Ellis Bowler 
Prabhsimran Singh Batter Atharva Taide Batter 
Harpreet Brar All-Rounder Bhanuka Rajapaksha Batter 
Shahrukh Khan All-Rounder Benny Howell All-Rounder 
Jitesh Sharma Batter Ansh Patel Bowler 
Ishan Porel Bowler Baltej Singh Bowler 
Vaibhav Arora Bowler Writhik Chatterjee  
Rishi Dhawan All-Rounder   

PBKS Expected XI: 

Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal(c), Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Rishi Dhawan/Prabhsimran Singh, Odean Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Sandeep Sharma/Ishan Porel. 

General Thoughts: A visible void of experience in the middle order, something similar to the Mumbai Indians. But the team doesn’t look out of balance. Kagiso and Arsh will make life difficult at the death overs. The opening is sorted. Punjab is certainly one of the top IPL 2022 Teams.

Lucknow Super Giants: 

It is the perfect opportunity for Deepak Hooda as he can bat up the order in the Lucknow Team. IMG SRC: CAknowledge.
Player Name Position Player Name Position 
KL Rahul Batter Mohsin Khan Bowler 
Quinton De Kock Batter/Keeper Aayush Badoni Batter 
Deepak Hooda All-Rounder Shabaz Nadeem  Spin Bowler 
Manish Pandey Batter Manan Vohra Batter 
Marcus Stoinis All-Rounder Dushmantha Chameera Fast Bowler 
Krunal Pandya All-Rounder Ewin Lewis Batter 
Jason Holder All-Rounder Mayank Yadav Bowler 
Ravi Bishnoi Spin Bowler Kyle Mayers All-Rounder 
Ankit Rajpoot Fast Bowler   
Krishnappa Gowtham All-Rounder   
Mark Wood Fast Bowler   
Avesh Khan Fast Bowler   

LSG Expected Playing XI: 

KL Rahul (C), Quinton De Kock, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, Krishnappa Gowtham, Avesh Khan, Mark Wood, Ankit Rajpoot.  

General Thoughts: Good investment in Quinton De Kock. If Deepak Hooda can’t bat in the middle Krunal can take number 4. Krishnappa Gowtham is a better batter than Shabaz and hence he can be used to make the tail long. All in all, one of the better sides after the auction. No evident loopholes.  

Rajasthan Royals: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Sanju Samson Keeper/Batter Trent Boult Fast Bowler 
Jos Butler Keeper/Batter Anunay Singh All-Rounder 
Devdutt Padikkal Batter Kuldeep Sen Bowler 
Yashasvi Jaiswal Batter Karun Nair Batter 
Shimron Hetmyer Batter Dhruv Jurel Batter 
David Miller Batter Tejas Baroka All-Rounder 
Riyan Parag All-Rounder Kuldeep Yadav All-Rounder 
Ravichandran Ashwin All-Rounder Shubham Garhwal All-Rounder 
Yuzvendra Chahal Spinner Nathan Coulter-Nile All-Rounder 
KC Carriapa Spinner James Neesham All-Rounder 
Navdeep Saini Fast Bowler Rassie Van Der Dussen Batter 
Obed McCoy Fast Bowler Daryl Mitchell All-Rounder 
Prasidh Krishna Fast Bowler   

RR Expected Playing XIs: 

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Butler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson(c), Rassie Van Der Dussen/David Miller, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Trent Boult, Yuzi Chahal, Prasidh Krishna.  

General Thoughts: 

Day 1 of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction was very good for Rajasthan. However, they went helter-skelter on Day 2. Many middle-order players like Rassie and Daryl Mitchell were bought by them in the last accelerator. But the team is much better than last season. Top-heavy again. They have to find a way to fit, Yashasvi, Devdutt, and Butler in the order. Fast bowling is top-notch.  

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 

Player Names Position Player Names Position 
Virat Kohli Batter Chama Milind Fast Bowler 
Faf Du Plessis Batter David Willey All-Rounder 
Glenn Maxwell All-Rounder Aneeshwar Gautam Spinner 
Dinesh Kartik Batter/Keeper Karn Sharma Spinner 
Josh Hazlewood Fast Bowler Siddharth Kaul Fast Bowler 
Wanindu Hasaranga All-Rounder Luvnith Sisodiya All-Rounder 
Mahipal Lomror Batter Harshal Patel All-Rounder 
Anuj Rawat Batter/Keeper Mohammad Siraj Fast Bowler 
Akash Deep Keeper/Batter   
Finn Allen Batter   
Sherfane Rutherford All-Rounder   
Jason Behrendorf Fast Bowler   
Suyash Prabhu Desai Batter   

RCB Expected Playing XI: 

A lot will depend on Faf as he is the expected captain of the RCB squad. IMG SRC: Swag Sports.

Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis, Suyash Prabhudesai/Akash Deep, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror/Shabaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj. 

General Thoughts: Siddhart Kaul always has had injury concerns, Chama Milind can get a game or two. Also, they are evidently shot by well-established Indian batters. Shabaz Ahmed and Mahipal Lomror have previously played well and have decent experience. Maybe, they should have gone for Karun Nair. The spin department is sorted. Hasaranga, Ahmed, and Maxwell will give the team 7-8 overs of spin.  

Sunrises Hyderabad: 

Players Name Position Players Name Position 
Kane Williamson Batter Marco Jansen All-Rounder 
Washington Sundar All-Rounder Sean Abbot Fast Bowler 
T Natarajan Fast Bowler Ravikumar Samarth Batter 
Nicholas Pooran Batter/Keeper Shashank Singh All-Rounder 
Bhuvneshwar Kumar Fast Bowler Saurabh Dubey All-Rounder 
Priyam Garg Batter Vishnu Vinod All-Rounder 
Rahul Tripathi Batter Glenn Phillips Batter/Keeper 
Abhishek Sharma All-Rounder Fazalhaq Farooqi All-Rounder 
Shreyas Gopal  Spinner Umran Malik Fast Bowler 
Kartik Tyagi Fast Bowler Abdul Samad All-Rounder 
Jagadeesha Suchith Spinner   
Aiden Markram Batter   
Romario Shepherd All-Rounder   

SRH Expected Playing XI: 

Aiden Markram, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (C), Nicholas Pooran, Priyam Garg/Washington Sundar, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Umran Malik/Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Marco Jansen, Shreyas Gopal. 

General Thoughts: 

Not the ideal playing XI. Many names aren’t yet well-established. Markram and Tripathi have to open. Opening back-up otherwise is in the form of Glenn Phillips (As he is a floater) or Kane himself. Samarth can be given a chance or two. Fast bowling has good Indian names. Washington Sundar and his batting abilities have to be backed. He can certainly bat number 5 and give 2 to 3 overs.  

Gujarat Titans: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Jason Roy Batter Darshan Nalkande All-Rounder 
Hardik Pandya All-Rounder Yash Dayal All-Rounder 
Shubman Gill Batter Alzarri Joseph Fast Bowler 
Rashid Khan Spinner Pradeep Sangwan Fast Bowler 
Abhinav Sadarangani Batter Ashok Sharma All-Rounder 
Lockie Ferguson Fast Bowler David Miller Batter 
Mohammed Shami Fast Bowler Wriddhiman Saha Batter/Keeper 
Rahul Tewatia Spinner Matthew Wade Batter/Keeper 
Noor Ahmed All-Rounder Varun Aaron Fast Bowler 
Sai Kishore Spinner Sai Sudarshan All-Rounder 
Vijay Shankar All-Rounder   
Jayant Yadav All-Rounder   
Dominic Drakes All-Rounder   

GT Expected Playing XI: 

Jason Roy, Shubman Gill, Abhinav Sadarangani/Wriddhiman Saha, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Hardik Pandya(C), Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami

General Thoughts: 

The team looks like has got all bases covered in the first 11. But they do not have the best backup. They need to find some reliable number 3 batter. Varun Aaron can be used to replace Shami in case of injury. But the presence of all-rounders gives them a good dynamic. They should have gone for an Indian batter. 

Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2022 Teams: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Venkatesh Iyer All-Rounder Baba Indrajith All-Rounder 
Andre Russell All-Rounder Chamika Karunaratne All-Rounder 
Nitish Rana Batter Abhijeet Tomar All-Rounder 
Pat Cummins Fast Bowler Pratham Singh Bowler 
Sunil Narine All-Rounder Ashok Sharma All-Rounder 
Varun Chakravarthy Spinner Sam Billings Batter/Keeper 
Shreyas Iyer Batter Alex Hales Batter 
Shivam Mavi Bowler Tim Southee Bowler 
Sheldon Jackson Batter Mohammad Nabi All-Rounder 
Ajinkya Rahane Batter Ramesh Kumar Batter 
Rinku Singh Batter Umesh Yadav  Fast Bowler 
Anukul Roy Spinner Aman Khan Batter 
Rasikh Dar Fast Bowler   

KKR Expected Playing XI: 

Venkatesh Iyer, Sam Billings (WK) /Alex Hales, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy, Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi. 

General Thoughts: 

The team is looking unsettled. They spent a lot of money on day 1 and remained silent on day 2. Heavy dependence on retained players. Should have gone for Sandeep Warrier, as he could be required as a pacer. If Sheldon Jackson can open, then Sam Billings can come and fill the gap in the middle order. The spin department looks good. Pacers are just above average. 

Delhi Capitals IPL 2022 Teams: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Rishabh Pant Batter/Keeper KS Bharat Batter/Keeper 
Axar Patel All-Rounder Kamlesh Nagarkoti Fast Bowler 
Prithvi Shaw Batter Khaleel Ahmed  Fast-Bowler 
Anrich Nortje  Fast Bowler Chetan Sakariya Fast Bowler 
Khaleel Ahmed Fast Bowler Lalit Yadav All-Rounder 
David Warner Batter Ripal Patel All-Rounder 
Mitchell Marsh All-Rounder Yash Dhull Batter 
Kuldeep Yadav Spinner Rovman Powell  All-Rounder 
Shardul Thakur  All-Rounder Pravin Dubey All-Rounder 
Mustafizur Rahman Fast Bowler Lungi Ngidi Fast Bowler 
Ashwin Hebbar All-Rounder Vicky Ostwal Spinner 
Abhishek Sharma All-Rounder   
Mandeep Singh Batter   

DC Expected Playing XI: 

David Waner, Prithvi Shaw, Mandeep Singh/KS Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (C, WK), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya. 

General Thoughts: 

A good first 11 but backup options are poor. They could have gone for any of the more established finishers. They evidently don’t have a finisher and Rishabh Pant will have to bat till the very end. Rovman Powell is the X-Factor. Kuldeep Yadav has to be backed, he will certainly give you benefit. Warner was a good pick.
