IPL 2022 Auction: “This Player Will Definitely Be Picked”

Experienced Team India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin predicted that the almighty U19 Rajvardhan Hangargekar can be selected by one of the IPL franchise at the big 2022 auction. The veteran off-spinner player says that Hangargekar has exceptional talent with both bats and balls.

19 year old Hangargekar is now part of India World U19 Championship 2022 team in the West Indies. He has racked up five goals at his average pace so far, including a 2-8 against Uganda. Hangargekar also broke an unbeaten streak of 39 on 17, with the assist of five six, in the clash with Ireland.

Discussing the youngster’s chances at the IPL 2022 grand prix, Ashwin said on his YouTube channel:

“This player will definitely be selected in the IPL auction. I can’t predict which franchise, but he’s definitely going to be bought. His name is Rajvardhan Hangargekar. ”

Explaining why he feels the player will be required, the 35-year-old added:

“He is an average right-handed player who can hit the ball very well. Ishant Sharma is the only one with this gift among India’s right pacemakers today. Inswing can often beat hitters, which is why I feel he will be required. “

Ashwin also points out that Hangargekar’s massive attack with willow will be an added advantage, stating:

“He is also a strong bottom hitter. The power he generates when he hits the ball is unbelievable. He should attract at least 5-10 bids. Make sure he takes precautions.”


Hangargekar claimed the score 1-19 from the penalty area 7.1 in the quarter-finals of the 2022 FIFA U19 World Cup against Bangladesh, where India knocked out their opponents with a score of 111.

Ashwin played it safe with India U19 captain Yash Dhull while describing him as a highly talented smasher, saying:

“Yash Dhull is a talented hitter. Last time SRH welcomed U19 captain Priyam Garg. Will they be able to do it this time? We’ll have to wait and see. DC has also backed a former Under-19 captain in Shaw. ”

Dhull hit 82 points in their Group B clash with South Africa before being forced to miss the next few games after contracting COVID-19.

“Each team has only eight slots abroad” – Ashwin discusses Dewald Brevis IPL opportunities

In addition to a number of young Indian players, South Africa’s Dewald Brevis has also made a huge impression at the 2022 U19 World Cup. Belovedly known as ‘Baby AB’, the 18-year-old Brevis is the top scorer in the tournament. This event to date, has 362 runs in four innings with an average of 90.50 and a strike rate of 86.39.

Although Ashwin was also impressed with the young Proteas’ batting feat, he was not sure Brevis would sign an IPL contract. Indian legend tells:

“Dewald Brevis is being promoted a lot as Baby AB. He was playing sensational and people started asking if he could be picked in the IPL. But each team has only eight slots abroad. ”

“Whether it’s worth giving one of those slots to a foreign U19 player is the big question for the franchise. So even though he’s called Baby AB, I’m not sure if whether he is chosen or not.”

Brevis, who has also won six shots with his foot swing, recently expressed his desire to represent Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL. In a video posted on the official ICC website, the youngster also revealed that he is a big fan of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. IPL 2022 Auction: “This Player Will Definitely Be Picked”
