5. Trent Boult:
The kiwi and Mumbai Indians (MI) pacer is likely to initiate a bidding war amongst the franchises in the upcoming IPL 2022 mega auctions. The New Zealand pacer has done all the things right to attract a good deal for himself in the upcoming times.
Playing for Mumbai Indians (MI), Boult has turned the tables multiple times and won matches. He was sensational in IPL 2020 with over 25 wickets in a season for MI and in the first half of the IPL 2021, the pacer has proved his mettle.
MI traded Boult from Delhi Capitals (DC) ahead of the IPL 2020 for INR 3.2 Crores. The pacer has justified his price tag and is likely to go beyond this in the coming years.
