The BCCI is busy preparing for IPL 2022. This time 10 teams are landing instead of 8 in the T20 league. The auction of 2 new franchises took place in Lucknow and Ahmedabad recently. KL Rahul can become the captain of Lucknow while Hardik Pandya can become the captain of Ahmedabad. This time the number of players in the league will also increase. Not only this, but the number of matches will also increase. Mega Auction (IPL 2022 Mega Auction) is likely to happen next month. Mumbai Indians have won the IPL title 5 times while CSK has won the IPL title 4 times.

8 old IPL teams have retained 27 players in the past. 2 new teams will now be able to add 3-3 players with them. Talking about the history of the T20 league, as a bowler, only one player has been able to earn more than Rs 100 crore as salary. This player is West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine. He has been retained by Kolkata Knight Riders for the current season. This bowler has taken more than 400 wickets in their overall T20 career.

Coming to T20 league since 2012

Talk about Sunil Narine, this 33-year-old bowler who has been playing in IPL since 2012. He has been playing for KKR since the initial season. He got around 3.5 crores in the first season. After this, after a great performance, there was a big jump in his salary. He got 12.5 crores in every season between 2018 and 2021. His performance in the last season was not good. For this reason, the team has retained him for Rs 6 crore for the current season. He has received about Rs 101 crore as salary so far.

They have been entering the league since 2009. However, the team has not retained him for the current season. In such a situation, he will have to enter the mega auction.
