KKR interested to buy Mustafiz for next season!
CRICDOT DESK : After the completion of recent IPL season, The auction of IPL 2022 is going to be held next month. Although the schedule hasn’t been finalized by the Indian board, media sources in the country have said that the IPL committee may hold the auction in late December or the first week of January approximately. This year, two new teams have been added along with 8 teams participating in the previous IPL and a total of 10 teams are going to be IPL in 2022.
Earlier, the BCCI had introduced a player retention policy to select players for auction. Where the previous 6 teams can hold 4 players. The list of those players has already been published. Their old franchise has not retained any Bangladeshi cricketer in the list.
Shakib and Mustafiz play regular IPL among Bangladeshis. Shakib played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Mostafiz played for Rajasthan Royals. Neither team is interested in having their own team. Kolkata have Andre Russell, Venkatesh Iyer, Varun Chakraborty and Sunil Narine in the squad.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have Sanju Samson, Jos Butler and Joycewal in their squad. Shakib-Mostafiz will be auctioned in the next IPL. If any franchise shows interest there, then they will play in the next IPL.
Shakib is currently the best all-rounder in the world. So he would like to buy any franchise. Shakib, an all-rounder who has played in the IPL since 2011, has played for two teams so far. He has played a total of 61 matches so far. The number of runs is around 600. He took 63 wickets.
On the other hand, Mostafizur Rahman has played for three teams in IPL. He has taken 36 wickets in 36 matches. According to Indian media sources, Shakib’s former club Kolkata Knight Riders can pull the cutter master of Bangladesh. Pat Cummins was the chief pacer of the Kolkata Knight Riders. There was Lucky Ferguson from New Zealand.
KKR will probably keep one of the two. In that case, KKR can take Mostafizur as left-arm fast bowler. The game will be played in Eden. It is certain that the Bangladeshi fast bowler will get the support of Kolkata. Moreover, Mostafizur can be found for less money than Cummins or Ferguson. He can bowl brilliantly in death overs.
