IPL 2022: You need to pick players who can adapt to different conditions, says Bharat Arun;

IPL 2022: Former India bowling coach Bharat Arun believes that Indian Premier League (IPL) teams should select players in the mega auction who can adapt to a variety of situations.

Bharat Arun has been appointed as the bowling coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

“You need to pick players who can adapt to different conditions. Even before the pandemic, when you picked bowlers for home conditions, you still needed them to play 7 away games in the IPL. See, with the Indian side, our goal was always to be Number 1 in any conditions,” KKR quoted Bharat Arun as saying.

“To be able to achieve that objective. I think the biggest challenge was to have bowlers who could excel. And who could get to 20 wickets in all conditions. We did exactly that, and that’s why we were successful,” he added.

The KKR bowling coach wants to build a team with a solid bench strength amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I think it is extremely important to build your bench strength and that is one aspect when KKR has excelled,” said Bharat Arun.

“Especially in this pandemic situation, where bubble life is tough, you need back ups for any unforeseen situations. Because of the uncertainties, we need a bigger squad nowadays,” he added.

Meanwhile, the IPL 2022 Player Auction list was released on Tuesday. With a total of 590 cricketers set to go under the hammer during the two-day mega auction.

The mega auction will take place on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru.
