Joe Root will not be entering the mega auction ahead of IPL 2022. In a press conference after losing the fifth Ashes Test match in Hobart, the 31-year old refused to enter the auction. According to him, he will sacrifice this chance as England’s Test team needs his attention.
“There is a lot needs to be done for England in Test cricket and the players deserve all of my engergy. I will keep sacrificing as much as I can because I care so much about Test cricket,” said Joe Root
He had given his name during the mega auction in 2018, but he had gone unsold. Since then, the right-handed batter has not entered an IPL auction even once.
