Ishan Kishan reflects on his emotions during the IPL 2022 mega auction.

Ishan Kishan reflects on his emotions during the IPL 2022 mega auction. Ishan Kishan, India’s star wicketkeeper-batter, already knew that the Mumbai Indians (MI) would bid for him in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction. The left-handed batter also stated that he would like to return to his former team because they understand his game. Notably, Kishan was the most expensive player at this season’s bidding event, with MI paying a whopping INR 15.25 crore for him.

So far in his IPL career, the 23-year-old batter has appeared in 61 matches. Kishan, who has been with MI since 2018, has 1,452 runs scored for an average of 28.47 and a strike rate of 136.34. The youngster has nine fifties to his name, with his highest score of 99 runs coming in the 2020 IPL against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). MI didn’t mind spending a lot of money to bring Kishan on board because he’s a proven match-winner for the team.

I had a feeling MI would go after me: Kishan Ishan

Ishan Kishan told the Times of India, “I knew MI would go after me.” That wasn’t the most concerning aspect. The rising cost was concerning because MI needed to save money to build the rest of the team. It wasn’t just about me, either. My heart skipped a beat for a moment there, I must admit.”

“There’s a reason I wanted to return to Michigan. They know who I am, they understand my game, and I know how my franchise works. I knew I didn’t want to leave this family because I’d been a part of it for so long. I’ve been here four years and the camaraderie is incredible. We’ve won two trophies, stood for and with each other, they know my cricket, and I know they’ll look after me. “As a result, I didn’t want to go anywhere else,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the IPL 2022 season is set to begin next month. Under the leadership of skipper Rohit Sharma, the five-time champions MI will look to extend their dominance in the tournament. After retaining Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, and Jasprit Bumrah in the auction, the franchise was able to secure their core squad.
