IPL Auction 2022: Probable combinations of all ten teams in 15th edition of league

The mega-auction for the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), meant for the league to hit a reset button with a complete overhaul of squads and the addition of two new teams, saw more money flow than ever before.

More than Rs 550 crore had been spent over the weekend at the ITC Gardenia Hotel in Bengaluru, with as many as 11 players bagging deals in excess of Rs 10 crore; the previous highest had been four in 2018. Ishan Kishan (Rs 15.25 crore) and Deepak Chahar (Rs 14 crore) got the biggest deals in the event while several lesser-known names from the Indian domestic circuit too became overnight crorepatis.

Mumbai Indians even went to the extent of getting Jofra Archer onboard at Rs 8 crore despite the England pacer already having opted out of the league this year, and spent an amount slightly higher on securing a relatively unknown Singaporean all-rounder Tim David.
