IPL 2022 Auction: Franchises still uncertain over Australian, England players as BCCI reveals Auction shortlist

As per a Cricbuzz report, all 10 franchises are still uncertain on the availability of overseas stars, especially those from England and Australia after BCCI revealed the list of 220 shortlisted players for the IPL 2022 Auction. The tournament is scheduled to be played for a duration of two months starting potentially on March 27, but an official schedule is yet to be announced.

The participation of English players for the entirety of the IPL 2022 was cast in doubt with a three-Test series against New Zealand to shortly begin after the IPL 2022.

A host of English stars including Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Chris Woakes have already pulled out of the auction.
