The Lucknow franchise has made a surprising call in the auction of IPL 2022, as they have acquired Avesh Khan for a whopping Rs 10 crore, and by doing that, they made him the most expensive uncapped player. He was released by DC after the last season. Avesh finished 2nd in the race for the Purple Cap in the last season as he took 24 wickets in 16 matches. He surpassed the mark of Rs 9.25 crore, which was the highest spending for an uncapped player, which was made for Krishnappa Gowtham. Avesh had a starting price of INR 20 lakh. Meanwhile, Punjab Kings bought all-rounder Shahrukh Khan for INR 9 crore earlier in the day. Shahrukh Khan is a Tamil Nadu cricketer who last season represented the Punjab Kings.

He was acquired by PBKS for Rs 9 crore, which is an amazing price as his starting price was just Rs 40 lakh, which is 22.5 times higher than this. He has made 231 runs in five first-class matches and has two fifties in his bag. He has made his presence felt in 11 IPL matches in 2021 and made 153 runs.
