My stint with CSK has been a very special one, says Ambati Rayudu


The mega auction of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League is not too far from us, as it is likely to be held in February 2022. MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings won the previous edition of the tournament by defeating Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders in the finals.

Moreover, it is expected that the upcoming mega auction would be the biggest ever in the history of the Indian Premier League. In addition to that, this mega auction will have the likes of the former players of the eight existing franchises that took part in the last season. Its auction pool has Suresh Raina, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shubman Gill and a lot more on the paper.

A few of them were expected to join with the home franchise that they represented in the previous edition of the cash-rich contest. The Andhra Pradesh based batsman who has represented Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will be also on the list of players ahead of the mega auction of IPL 2022.
