IPL 2022 Auction is the next big thing in cricket that the fans are looking forward to. One of the teams that would be too excited for the IPL 2022 Mega Auction is Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Orange Army took the wooden spoon home last season in the IPL by finishing eighth.
Ahead of the mega auction, the Hyderabad-based franchise have released their big names like Jonny Bairstow, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan and David Warner. It seems SRH wants to form a fresh team around captain Kane Williamson. They have signed former South African fast bowler Dale Steyn as their new pace bowling coach, and he could advice the team to sign the following five players.
1. Faf du Plessis
Dale Steyn and Faf du Plessis played a lot of matches together for South Africa. The South African batter has an excellent record in the IPL. He could boost the SRH batting lineup in IPL 2022 with his experience and skills.
2. Trent Boult
Many fans might know that Trent Boult and Dale Steyn played together for SRH in the 2015 IPL season. Boult knows how to win matches in all formats of cricket. He could be the ‘X-factor’ of the SRH team if they re-sign him at the mega auction.
3. Kagiso Rabada
Dale Steyn is a big fan of Kagiso Rabada, and he made it clear with his tweet during the IPL 2020 season. Rabada is a former Purple Cap winner in the tournament, and his presence could bolster SRH’s pace attack.
4. Washington Sundar could be targeted by SRH in IPL 2022 Auction
Dale Steyn played with Washington Sundar for RCB in IPL 2020. Sundar is a top-quality T20 all-rounder. Not long ago, he was the number 1 Indian name on the ICC T20I Rankings for bowlers. He could be a fantastic addition to the Orange Army.
5. Ishan Kishan could be targeted by SRH in IPL 2022 Auction
Dale Steyn played together with Ishan Kishan for the Gujarat Lions in the 2016 IPL season. Kishan is an extremely talented wicket-keeper batter. He has a great record in the IPL, and there is no reason why SRH should go for him at the mega auction.
