Sanjay Manjrekar believes Venkatesh Iyer, the new Kolkata Knight Riders sensation, will take a very high price in the mega auction ahead of the IPL 2022. Manjrekar added that Iyer’s T20 numbers are impressive outside of IPL, leading to fierce bidding competition next year will attract.
Venkatesh Iyer has taken the IPL by storm since his debut against Royal Challengers Bangalore following the 2021 IPL restart. So far, he has amassed 193 runs in just five matches averaging a staggering 48.25 average. His domestic T20 number is also very impressive as he has amassed 724 runs at an average of 36.20 since making his debut for Madhya Pradesh. The former Indian batsmen believe the teams will wage a bidding war for the 26-year-old.
“I think 12-14 crore because this isn’t some kind of fluke. I looked at his first-class numbers and his List A record is excellent. His average is 47, beating 92. That’s his T20 record in domestic cricket, the IPL not counting his strike rate is high he has an average of 37 so this is a man who knows how to bat besides he is a bowler and in the last match he showed he can bowl so he is someone which is going to fetch a very high price,” Manjrekar told ESPNCricinfo, Hindustan Times reported.
The IPL 2022 will witness a mega sale ahead of the season due to the addition of two new teams. The announcement of those two teams will be made on Monday, October 25.
Meanwhile, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar stated that Iyer could be the all-rounder the Indian team has been looking for.
“In Venkatesh Iyer, Kolkata has found a player who can be the all-rounder India is looking for. His bow isn’t explicit, but he more than gets the yorker right and doesn’t let the batsman slog him. As a batsman, he plays upright, which puts him in a great position to play the short ball, and drives beautifully through offside as all left-handers seem to do,” Gavaskar wrote in a column for TOI, Hindustan Times reported. .
