Speaking to the media ahead of the fifth Ashes Test against Australia Joe Root He made it clear that he was thinking of registering his name in the IPL auction. Route made it clear that he would register his name in the auction if playing in the IPL did not adversely affect his ability to play Test matches for England, but added that no decision had yet been made in this regard.
At the same time, Joe Root is a player who has never played in the IPL. The name was registered at the 2018 Mega Auction but the player was unsold due to lack of demand. Root, who has not been part of the England T20 squad for the past few years, does not have an impressive record in T20. Therefore, even if the name is registered in the auction this time, it is doubtful that the player will get the IPL bid. It is believed that he will register his name for the root auction only after he has really thought twice about having an unsold experience at the auction.
