After two days of intense battle on the auction tables, all 10 teams have finalised their squads ahead of IPL 2022 next month.

Heading into the Mega Auction, the Australians were subject of great anticipation after their T20 World Cup triumph last November. That anticipation was for good reason, with a particularly large sum, as well as some bargains and surprise omissions, generating plenty of discussion and debate.

List of Australians sold in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Tim David to Mumbai Indians (8.25cr, approx. AU$1.534m)

The Singapore international, who is eligible to play for Australia, had the biggest payday among the Australians. David’s finishing ability was attractive among bidders, especially after striking at 211.68 in the first half of the ongoing PSL 2022.

Five-time champions Mumbai Indians landed David for a whopping 8.25 crores.

Josh Hazlewood to Royal Challengers Bangalore (7.75cr, approx. AU$1.44m)

List of Australians sold in the IPL 2022 Auction: Josh Hazlewood got a great deal with RCB

Josh Hazlewood’s rise as a T20 bowler over the past 12 months has been magnificent. He played a vital role in both Chennai winning IPL 2021 and Australia lifting the T20 World Cup. In his most recent outing, he won player of the match thanks to a superb bowling display against Sri Lanka both during the 20 overs and Super Over.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will enjoy his services in a pace attack that includes Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj.

Pat Cummins to Kolkata Knight Riders (7.25cr, approx. AU$1.35m)

Pat Cummins is back at Kolkata Knight Riders for approximately half of what he was earning in IPL 2020 and 2021. The pace bowler is still an excellent pickup for 2021 finalists KKR, who will turn to Cummins to bowl in the crunch powerplay and death overs.

Mitchell Marsh to Delhi Capitals (6.50cr, approx. AU$1.2m)

List of Australians sold in the IPL 2022 Auction: Mitchell Marsh.

A really solid purchase by Delhi Capitals. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh enjoyed a stellar year in 2021 after moving to the number three position. He was player of the match in the T20 World Cup Final, and if he stays fit, he could prove to be a matchwinner for Delhi in IPL 2022.

David Warner to Delhi Capitals (6.25cr, approx. AU$1.16m)

Another one of the bargains of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. David Warner, one of the greatest players in IPL history, was sold to a jubilant Delhi Capitals for 6.25 crores. He will partner Prithvi Shaw at the top in what promises to be a dynamic opening partnership.

Daniel Sams to Mumbai Indians (2.6cr, approx. AU$484,000)

A solid payday for Daniel Sams, who is one of the BBL’s most prolific bowlers. He joins five-time champions Mumbai Indians, and if he gets an opportunity, will be looking to make a mark with bat and ball in a star-studded lineup.

Matthew Wade to Gujarat Lions (2.4cr, approx. AU$446,000)

Originally unsold on the first day, Matthew Wade was snapped up by one of the new franchises, Gujarat Lions. Wade reminded everyone of his six-hitting ability in his memorable knock against Pakistan last year.

Sean Abbott to Sunrisers Hyderabad (2.4cr, approx. AU$446,000)

List of Australians sold in the IPL 2022 Auction: Sean Abbott.

Sean Abbott is also one of the top performers in the BBL. He enjoyed another strong season with the Sydney Sixers recently, where he also contributed with the bat. If he gets a chance in this year’s IPL and performs well, his stocks will only grow further.

Nathan Coulter-Nile to Rajasthan Royals (2cr, approx. AU$372,000)

Nathan Coulter-Nile, who was bought late on day two, has IPL title-winning experience. He was part of Mumbai’s triumphant season in 2020, and he will be looking to make an impact for the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022.

Riley Meredith to Mumbai Indians (1cr, approx. AU$186,000)

Pacer Riley Meredith went for a huge 8 crores in IPL 2021, but didn’t have the best of seasons with Punjab Kings. He has gone for 1 crore a year later, but joins a winning culture at the Mumbai Indians.

Nathan Ellis to Punjab Kings (75lakh, approx. AU$139,000)

Punjab Kings have bought back Nathan Ellis after he landed his first IPL deal for phase two of the tournament last year. He is one of Australia’s finest prospects in the shortest format of the game, and how he goes will be interesting to see.

Jason Behrendorff to Royal Challengers Bangalore (75lakh, approx. AU$139,000)

A nice little pickup here by RCB. Jason Behrendorff is a strong performer in the powerplay overs, and has constantly been producing the goods for Perth Scorchers in the BBL.

Some of the Australians unsold in the IPL 2022 Auction

Incredibly, there were no bids for Adam Zampa, who is one of the top T20 spinners in the globe. Perhaps a little less surprising was Aaron Finch and Steve Smith going unsold, given both have struggled in T20 Internationals for quite a while now.

BBL star Ben McDermott missed out, as did pacers Kane Richardson, Ben Dwarshuis and Andrew Tye. Marnus Labuschagne went unsold, and Chris Lynn, Ashton Agar and Moises Henriques were not put up for bidding.

Overall, franchises spent a total of AU$12.23m on Australian players in the auction.
