The major auction for the 2022 IPL took place over the weekend, with ten clubs competing for the rights to recruit some of the top players in the country and the world. Following the introduction of the two new teams, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra argued that the event sorely needed a rule revision. Chopra proposed that clubs be permitted to include five foreign players in their starting XI.
“There aren’t going to be 70 Indians in the XI. Aside from that, you’ll need two or three backups. Where are you going to obtain 100 Indians? You won’t be able to get 100 Indians. Unfortunately, India lacks that depth, regardless of what we may say differently “Chopra stated on his Youtube account.
Chopra pondered on Punjab Kings head coach Anil Kumble’s comments at the auction regarding the process being difficult this year, claiming that this is the reason for some players’ high pricing.
