Halfway through the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, amidst the surge in the number of coronavirus cases inside the bio-secure bubbles, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to suspend the IPL 2021. Several COVID-19 cases were reported inside the bubbles at the beginning of the fourth week of the IPL.
However, this IPL noted so many unprecedented events like Aaron Finch going unsold during the auction, David Warner losing his captaincy reign in the midway of the tournament.
It is envisioned that a mega auction will happen before the commencement of the 15th edition of the IPL in 2022. According to reports, two new teams will be added to the IPL, making the franchise-based league a 10-team affair. If it happens, the teams will scout for new captains.
In this article, we will talk about five players who can become captains in the IPL 2022:
Finch, the skipper of Australia in the limited-over formats went unsold in the IPL 2021 auction after a dry stint in the previous season. Finch has established himself as a brilliant captain for Australia over the years. His former franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore, released him before the 2021 auction.
The experienced opener has two of the three highest T20I individual scores under his belt. A new team may trade him and give him the responsibilities for the 2022 season. The right-handed batter averages 38.45 in the format.
