Among the many predictions he has made in the run up to the IPL auction, Chopra has expressed hope that an upcoming Sri Lankan all-rounder should draw the attention of more than one franchise.
Wanindu Hasaranga has impressed in international cricket with his all-round abilities and Chopra expects a bidding war for the Lankan during the IPL 2022 auction. He also asked Rajasthan Royals to go for this cricketer in the auction.
Hasaranga was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore as a replacement last season and although the Lankan didn’t have much to show for his abilities in the tournament, he was in good form in the ICC T20 World Cup that followed.
It will be interesting to see how much traction he gets during the auction
