As Ishan Kishan’s name appeared in the IPL 2022 mega auction, it was always going to be an intense bidding war in Bengaluru on Saturday. The explosive wicket-keeper was touted to be one of the most sought after players this time around and there were no surprises to see Mumbai Indians, former team of Kishan, going on all aggressively after the youngster.

It all started with a battle between MI and Punjab Kings before the latter backed out. The 5-time champions then had to face counter bids from Gujarat Titans and things got quite exciting once the 10 crore mark was breached. Just when it looked MI had sealed the deal at INR 12.75 crore, Sunrisers Hyderabad entered the race to completely turn the tides around.

As it turned out, Mumbai Indians eventually secured the services of Ishan Kishan for INR 15.25 crore, it made the youngster the most expensive wicket-keeper ever in history of Indian Premier League.
