IPL 2022 Exclusive: Final Squad List of all the Teams Post-Mega Auction

IPL 2022 Exclusive:

The Indian Premier League 2022 Mega Auction came to a successful conclusion after a two-day marathon event. The auction sold a total of 204 players, including 66 international players. The auction raised a total of INR 551.7 crores, or about INR 2.7 crores per player. This is on top of the INR 324.2 crores spent to keep 33 players.

Overall, the IPL 2022 was a huge success, with teams putting together fantastic lineups of batsmen, wicketkeepers, all-rounders, and bowlers. While some teams, such as CSK and Delhi Capitals, focused on developing an Indian core, others, such as LSG and Punjab Kings, focused on acquiring all-rounders.

In terms of statistics, the IPL 2022 now features a total of 237 players spread among 10 teams. The only clubs that have fully utilised the maximum quota of 25 players are CSK, KKR, MI, and PBKS. The Lucknow Super Giants have the fewest players, with only 21. There are around 76 batsmen and wicketkeepers, 78 all-rounders, and 73 bowlers among the 237 players.

So, now that the IPL 2022 Mega Auction is over, let’s take a look at the final squad list for all of the teams. For clarity, we’ll look at the squads of all the teams in three categories: batters and wicketkeepers, all-rounders, and bowlers.
