Update: 4 January 2022
IPL is a hub for players to debut and shine on the cricket platform. Franchises always try to seek players who are new but have already cemented themselves as good cricketers. When we talk about the club cricketers globally, many players play the Big Bash, Pakistan Premier League, CPL, etc. Then there are a few players who play domestic cricket in India.
All these cricket leagues provide a good platform for the budding players to shine and get noticed by the IPL franchises, and eventually, they get the opportunity to play in the IPL.
VIVO IPL 2021 ended on October 15. IPL 2022 will see two new teams getting added. As a result, there will be an addition of 50 new players ( per franchise 25 players, max 8 overseas) in the IPL mega auction.
This will provide a golden opportunity for the players to come to the limelight of the IPL franchise. Even if they perform moderately in their respective club cricket, they can still fancy their chance to get picked in the upcoming mega auction.
Let’s look At The Five Players On Whom IPL Teams Can Bid For The First Time
Rassie van der Dussen
Rassie van der Dussen is a member of the South Africa national team. So far, Rassie has played 27 T20I matches, scoring 756 runs at an average of 36. With a Strike rate of 134.76, he has already made a name for himself as an attacking player for Proteas. Well, for someone who has played 20+ ODIs, this is impressive. Rassie can join a team like the Rajasthan Royals, which lacks good attacking players.

Devon Conway will most likely be selected in the next big auction. Fashionable left-handers have become a topic in the city. In addition, he has performed well in all forms of competition. It seemed that Kane Williamson ensured that Conway’s abilities were used correctly under his command. So far, he has participated in 14 T20I matches.
He scored 473 runs with an average of 59.12. Recently, he also made his debut in test format. In this game, he scored a double century. Conway might also break auction records. It turns out he’s the next New Zealand superstar. There is no doubt that all teams will seek to include him in their team.
Jos Inglis is a wicket-keeper batsman from Australia. He is a part of the Perth Scorchers team. Jos Inglis has played 41 BBL games to date. He has accumulated 941 runs with a healthy strike rate of 143.45. He has also done 33 dismissals as part of the wicket-keeping responsibility.
His highest score in T20 cricket is 73. The new franchise will like to place a bet on him because he is both an aggressive batsman and a good wicket-keeper.
R. Alexander can be a great choice to any IPL team with a lack of spinners options. He is one of the key players of Tamil Cricket leagues. He is a local cricketer who went to big tournaments happening in inter-state leagues. He took at least one wicket per match last year by looking at his stats, which made him valuable for the team. The economy is excellent for the T20 format.
He has been one of the key players for Gujarat and Baroda for a long time but has failed to grab a team in IPL. This player has a pure class of batting style. His average in T20 format speaks for him, which is above 30 in every major tournament. The player has tons of experience and had played with many iconic players in the domestic league. He is always in the top ten list of run scores in national tournaments like the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy.
