The auction for the Indian Premier League in 2022: Mumbai Indians’ (MI) purchase of Ishan Kishan at a cost of 15 and a half crore rupees

When it comes to Ishan Kishan, former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan remarked on Saturday that the team is investing so much in the left-handed batter because it sees him as a long-term prospect in the Indian Premier League (IPL). For Rs 15.25 crore, the Mumbai Indians were able to re-sign Ishan Kishan to their roster. “In the future, he could be the team’s captain, but he isn’t here right now. They still have Keiron Pollard, Bumrah, and Suryakumar Yadav, all of whom have the potential to lead the team. As a result, they’re looking to make an investment for the next five to seven years, which is why they focused so intently on Ishan Kishan and insisted that we return to Ishan Kishan at all costs “Cricket Live – IPL Auction Special” host Pathan remarked on Star Sports.

I have not witnessed Mumbai Indian chatting so much and having a longer pause than this in my history of this Auction list,” he said.
