IPL 2022, Flop Retain Players: Before the mega auction of IPL 2022, all the teams had retained players. While many franchises played bets on the right players, the performance of retained players for many teams was very poor.

IPl, 2022: Kieron Pollard, Mumbai Indians :-
Kieron Pollard is one of the most successful all-rounders of T20, but IPL 2022 was a very bad season for him. Pollard was retained by Mumbai Indians (MI) for Rs 6 crore.

Abdul Samad, Sunrisers Hyderabad :-
Young all-rounder Abdul Samad was retained by the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise before IPL 2022. Abdul Samad was retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 4 crore, but the franchise did not get the benefit.
In IPL 2022, Abdul Samad played 2 matches, in both these matches he was flop. In these 2 matches, he scored only 4 runs and he could not take a single wicket. Seeing this poor performance of Abdul Samad, he was also dropped from the team’s playing XI.
