Joe Root is looking forward to his debut in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022. According to the reports, Root will enter his name for the mega auction.

The last time he was unsold in 2018 and often IPL clashed with England series. Thus he never got to play in IPL yet. Since there will be two more new teams for next year edition of IPL. Teams would be looking for a big player like Root to be included in their team.

Joe Root is considered one of the modern great batsmen along with Kohli, Williamson, Smith and Babar Azam. But Root is yet to play his first-ever match in IPL. There is a big chance that one of the new team will eye this England cricketer as their core experience.

Root Will Play In IPL 2022

Joe has expressed his desire to be in for IPL next year. Though, previously he also wanted to play in 2020. But he opted his name out from the auction. So, it would be interesting to see him play when he gets his chance to play in the most difficult cricket tournament in the world.

Although, Joe Root isn’t a T20 specialist. Thus he’s not even a part of T20 world cup 2021 squad. The 30-year-old cricketer has played his last T20 in 2019. He’s most responsible for the test matches as of now and he’s preparing for the upcoming Ashes series in Australia. Root has been missing his presence in T20 because of the workload from the ODI and Test matches.

He often opts out his name out of T20 matches and the reason he gives is that he doesn’t feel he could throw his all energy into the game which the game deserves.
