Australian pocked sized dynamo, David Warner is highly likely to get a luxurious IPL contract in the upcoming mega auctions.

Warner is adjudged as the present-day batting legend. Not many overseas cricketers have experienced success playing in the IPL but Warner is one of the few exceptions that IPL has witnessed.

The Aussie is on the list of top run-getter in IPL history. He can be extremely dangerous for the opposition if he settles down in the innings. Moreover, he has also helped Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to win its maiden IPL title back in 2016.

Not many would have thought of seeing David Warner going under the hammer, but the reality is, due to a bitter fallout with SRH, Warner was released during the recent player retentions and is all set to go under the auction hammer.

Shreyas Iyer:

Indian middle-order batsman, Shreyas Iyer have his name listed in the top ten draws of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.

The trend in the IPL shows that an all-rounder is more likely to be the most expensive player, however, everyone can sense that trend getting dissolved in the IPL 2022 mega auctions. 

Shreyas Iyer is on the radar of multiple IPL teams, purely because of his stunning captaincy skills. Iyer is a sensible skipper and we have witnessed it when he took charge of Delhi Capitals (DC).

With the added advantage of being a fantastic captain, Iyer is also a capable middle-order batsman. He can provide cushion to the top order and can even score quickfire runs to take his team to a good total.
