IPL changes the lives of many cricketers. It has been doing over the years and the story remains the same in IPL 2022 Mega Auction as well. While Day 1 saw many big names go for no money, Day 2 was a day of joy for so many youngsters. Uttar Pradesh’s Yash Dayal was among those uncapped players who attracted a huge bid at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. The left-arm quick had kept his base price at 20 Lakhs but got a lot more than it. He was bought by Gujarat Titans for a whopping 3.2 Crores, 16 times his base price.
