Ishan Kishan was the Most Expensive Player in TATA IPL 2022 Mega Auction:
Ishan Kishan was the highest bid in the TATA IPL 2022 Mega Auction. He bagged a cheque of 15.25 crores from the Mumbai Indians. The Mumbai Indians did not want to lose out on their prized possession. They bought Ishan for 6.2 Crores in the 2018 IPL Auction. And purely based on performance, his price had inflated to more than twice of that. His innings against Bangladesh in the 3rd ODI in India’s tour of Bangladesh did show us a glimpse of why the Ambanis believe in this young man.
The TATA IPL 2023 Auction will see big names like Ben Stokes and Sam Curran. The prediction is that Ben Stokes or Cameron Green can be the highest bid or the most expensive player in IPL 2023 Auction.
