#2 Steve Smith
One of the best batsmen of this generation of cricketers Australia’s Steve Smith went unsold in the 2022 IPL auction. He played for Delhi Capitals in the previous season of IPL and before that he was captain of the Rajasthan Royals for two years but this auction did not go well for him as no team showed interest in him.
#1 Suresh Raina
This 2022 IPL will not be the same without Mr. IPL. Maybe we will never see him now in the IPL. Rains went unsold in mega auction his previous team Chennai Super Kings did not bid for him and which was a total shock as Chennai got almost every player back in their team but not Raina. It is surely an end of an era as Raina and Dhoni’s chemistry on the field finally came to an end and it broke the hearts of CSK fans. Raina was an integral part of IPL and without him, IPL will never be the same.
