Mark Wood, who is an experienced England pacer, has decided to take part in the IPL 2022 mega auction. Hence, it will be a big opportunity for the franchises to have him play a big part for them in the 2018 IPL. All the players are supposed to provide their paperwork at the end of this week, but Wood is not sure if he wants to enter the league.

“I’m looking forward to the World Cup at the end of the year. It stung a lot this winter when we got knocked out in the [T20 World Cup] semi-final [by New Zealand], and it seems like it’s time for us to strive hard as a one-day squad to leave a legacy. For the time being, I’ll be in it. However, it is essential to spend time at home contemplating. It’s only a question of whether or not the time away from home, the bubbles I’ve been to Australia without my kid, which was difficult, especially around Christmas time, so I’ll have to see how the family situation is, “he said.

He has entered the auction at a price of Rs 2 crore, which is the highest base price. He says that the prospects of earning money are not something that he prioritises, but the chance to improve as a T20 bowler before the WC is what brings him into the IPL.
