Here are 5 Non-Retained Allrounders Who Will Fetch Huge Deals. IPL teams have always shown a preference for having quality all-rounders in their ranks. The all-rounders have been the MVPs on most occasions. These players who can contribute with all 3 skillsets are worth their weight in gold. We discussed here about 5 Non-Retained Allrounders In IPL2022.

The IPL retention policy has forced teams to let go of solid all-round players. Players who delivered championships, players who were game-changers. Teams will be keen to rope in quality all-rounders in their teams. They will be eager to pick them up through the draft and the mega auctions. 

We look at 5 Non-Retained Allrounders In IPL2022 who might fetch big deals in the auctions: 

#5 Jason Holder

Jason Holder is one of the most underrated all-rounders in world cricket. He is someone who gives his 100% every single game. Holder was the biggest point of difference for SRH the last season. But strangely he wasn’t even considered for retention.

He is not only handy with the ball but is also brutal with the bat. His long handle has often bailed out teams from a position of disarray. It’s time a player of Holder’s class is rewarded fairly.

#4 Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib Al Hasan is the world’s leading allrounder across formats. He is Bangladesh’s best player ever. Hasan is a match-winner with both bat and the ball. KKR did use Hasan quite smartly using him in the powerplay where he was often hard to getaway. But they couldn’t make complete use of him as a batsman. Hasan is an enforcer at number 3. If a team uses its potential to the fullest, it will have a complete package at its disposal.

#3 Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya was arguably the best Indian all-rounder until the last couple of seasons. He picked up crucial wickets with the ball while being an absolute beast with the bat. Pandya took down attacks at will. He even performed the role of a specialist batter to perfection in 2020.

But an off-colour season in 2021 saw him fall out of favours. Pandya will be available for other teams to pouch. There isn’t an iota of doubt that he will be paid a huge sum for his all-round services.

#2 Sam Curran

Sam Curran is one of the bright young talents in world cricket. He had a sensational IPL season last year. Curran was CSK’s standout player. There were opinions stating he should be the only player along with Ravindra Jadeja whom the franchise should consider retaining. Curran was effective in the 1st leg of IPL 2021 too. 

But an indifferent form in 2nd leg cost him a place in the side. CSK eventually released Curran. But he is someone who will come back strong. He is an asset with both bat and the ball. Expect him to go for big numbers in the auction.

#1 Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes has already been the most expensive player in an auction. He twice achieved this feat and that too in consecutive years (2017-18). Stokes won the MVP in his debut IPL season playing for Pune. He later represented the Royals from 2018 up until this season. 

But injuries and dip in form meant that the Royals couldn’t afford to retain him. Stokes will now be available in the auctions. There will be little surprise if he again sets the cash registers ringing in the auctions.
