One of the key all-rounders who will be up for grabs in IPL 2022 will be Marcus Stoinis. He has been an integral member of the Delhi Capitals squad. However, Stoinis is most likely to be released by DC ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction. Marcus Stoinis is a very valuable player who can score runs with ease coming lower down the batting order.
He can also bowl four overs for his team. The Australian all-rounder will surely be worth purchasing by any IPL franchise considering the value he brings to the side.
One of the most promising England all-rounder Sam Curran is currently part of Chennai Super Kings. However, because a maximum of only 2 foreign players is allowed to be retained by any team in IPL 2022 mega auction, Sam Curran is most likely to be released. However, a player of such value cannot be ignored by any team.
He has also played a couple of good innings for CSK in VIVO IPL 2021. Sam is a very good bowler who can change the pace of the bowl and deceive the batsman. Sam Curran will surely be one of the hot picks in the mega auction.
If we talk about experienced all-rounders, one name always strikes our mind and that is the Australian Veteran Moises Henriques. He has been associated with the Australian team for many years and is also a reputed player in the Big Bash League. Moises Henriques is currently part of Punjab Kings. He will surely be released ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction.
We expect one among the two new teams to go all guns blazing to purchase Moises Henriques at a hefty price given the experience he brings to the team. Henriques can be a good middle-order batsman and is also a decent medium-pace bowler.
The South African all-rounder Chris Morris is one of the best foreign players currently part of IPL. He was also the highest-paid player of VIVO IPL 2021 having been purchased by Rajasthan Royals for a whopping 16.25 crore.
Chris Morris is also one of the best all-rounders who has made IPL franchises sing to his tune. An excellent pace bowler and a very handy lower middle-order batsman Morris may be released by Rajasthan Royals ahead of IPL 2022.
They can retain only 2 foreign players and one of them will surely be Jofra Archer. The second will be a toss-up between Ben Stokes and Chris Morris and given the better batting skill of Stokes, he may be retained.
Whatever be the situation, it is almost certain that Chris Morris will be one of the key players in the IPL 2022 mega auction if released by Rajasthan.

Jason Holder is a very valuable player on the team. Being tall, he can generate a good pace and bounce from even slow and low wickets.
Jason is also a very good batsman coming down the order. Jason Holder brings a lot of value to the team and he will surely be one of the hot picks in the IPL 2022 mega auction.
