The IPL 2022 huge auction is just a few weeks away, and the 2 additional franchises will disclose 3 retentions by the time limit of January 22. Meanwhile, it has been reported that all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, Shubman Gill, would sign the Ahmedabad team for the IPL 2022 season. As per the proposed regulations, CVC Capitals’ team will have a wallet of 90 crores, of which their 3 retentions would spend 15 crore, 11 crore, and 7 crore, accordingly.

The Ahmedabad franchise has also finalized its coaching team, with former Indian bowler Ashish Nehra serving as bowling coach as well as Gary Kirsten as their head coach. Former England batsman Vickram Solanki, who is thought to be the team’s coordinator, will be on the support personnel. This is the trio’s 2nd time collaborating for a franchise, having previously done so with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the business.

Hardik Pandya Is Likely To Lead The Ahmedabad Team

As per an insider, the Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is expected to head the Ahmedabad team, which would be his maiden stint as a captain of any side. Pandya struggled in the last IPL season, which was hampered by too many injuries, and was not retained by the Mumbai Indians prior to the blockbuster auctions. Furthermore, his part in the achievement of the Mumbai Indians throughout the years has really been tremendous, and he is deserving of the new assignment.

Rashid Khan, the 2nd retention, has only featured for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in his IPL tenure, and this would be his 1st run for a new IPL team. The leggie is perhaps the finest spinner in the format right now, and he can be the match-winner that any team will indeed want to have on their team.

Furthermore, Shubman Gill was supposed to be retained by the Kolkata Knight Riders side, but with so many possibilities, the other teams will have a chance. He has been regarded as a potential captain for both India and IPL teams. The 22-year-old has been kept for a worth 7 crore, whereas Pandya and Rashid have been retained for 15 crore, and 11 crore accordingly.
