Ravichandran Ashwin, a veteran Indian off-spinner, believes that India U19 star all-rounder Rajvardhan Hangargekar would get 5-10 offers in the Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction in 2022.
Rajvardhan Hangargekar is now a member of India’s U19 World Cup 2022 squad, where he has taken five wickets so far. In addition, he scored 39 runs off only 17 balls against Ireland.
Ashwin said on his YouTube channel that Hangargekar would be in high demand in the IPL super auction in 2022. He declared:
“At the IPL auction, this player will undoubtedly be selected.” I can’t say which franchise he’ll get, but he’ll almost certainly be bought. Rajvardhan Hangargekar is his name. He is a right-arm medium pacer who excels at bowling the inswinger. Among current Indian right-arm pacers, Ishant Sharma is the only one with the talent. Because inswing can generally tuck batters in, I believe he will be in high demand.”
The 19-year-old is also a powerful and great bottom middle-order batter, according to Ashwin.
“He’s also a capable lower-middle-order bat.” When he smacks the ball, he creates enormous power. At the very least, he should get 5-10 offers. Make sure you keep an eye on him.”
Ashwin described India U19 skipper Yash Dhull as a “very skilled hitter” when speaking about him. He said, “
“Yash Dhull is an exceptional batter. Priyam Garg, the U19 captain, was the last player taken up by SRH. Will they repeat the same mistake this time? We’ll just have to wait and see. Shaw, a former U19 captain, has also received support from DC.”
Despite the fact that he is known as Baby AB, I am not sure whether he will be chosen — Ravichandran Ashwin is a cricketer from India.
Ashwin also discussed Dewald Brevis, or ‘Baby AB,’ of South Africa’s prospects of being selected by a club in the 2022 big auction, saying:
“As Baby AB, Dewald Brevis is heavily advertised. People are wondering whether he can be chosen in the IPL since he is performing so well. However, each club is limited to eight abroad berths.”
“The main issue for the teams is whether it’s worth allocating one of those places to an U19 foreign player. So, despite the fact that he’s known as Baby AB, I’m not sure whether he’ll be chosen.”
In the World Cup, the 18-year-old Proteas hitter had four back-to-back 50+ scores, including three 90+ scores. He hit 65 runs against India, 104 against Uganda, 96 against Ireland, and 97 against England. He has also taken six wickets in the event with his leg-spin bowling.
