- Advertisement -

IPL Auction 2022 was quite unpredictable, a lot of star players were unsold whereas the biggest names went under the hammer. Ishan Kishan was the most expensive buy(15.25 crore) by Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, a big name like Suresh Raina remained unsold.

Let’s have a look at the top 10 unsold players in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Suresh Raina (Base price of Rs 2 crore)

Suresh Raina

Raina is in a good condition physically but didn’t have a great IPL game in 2021 and his base price might have scared the franchise owners.  Raina struggled big-time in the 2021 season, scoring just 160 runs in 12 matches at a paltry average of 17.77.

Steve Smith (Base price of Rs 2 crore)

Smith scored 152 runs in eight matches at an average of 25.33 and a strike rate of 112.59. He had a mixed game in 2021 though his overall experience could have helped the team. However, no franchise snapped the Australian player.

Shakib Al Hasan (Base price of Rs 2 crore)


Hasan had a poor performance in IPL 2021 that worked against him. Playing for KKR, Shakib scored just 47 runs in eight matches and took only four wickets.

Adil Rashid (Base price of Rs 2 crore)

Tahir played just a single match for the Chennai Super Kings, in which he took two wickets at an economy rate of 4. However, his age and the base price might be the reason that none of the franchises bought him.

Aaron Finch (Base price of Rs 1.50 crore)
