One of the uncapped players, Abhinav Sadarangani was sold to Gujarat Titans for INR 2.60 crore in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. Sadarangani made his Twenty20 debut for Karnataka in the preliminary quarter-finals of the 2021–22 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, where he top-scored in the match with 70 not out. He made his List A debut the same year, also for Karnataka, in the preliminary quarter-finals of the 2021–22 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Sadarangani can definitely handle pressure looking at the few innings he has played, and he fits into the middle-order batter role, which has had a greater demand in IPL. He is known to have a reputation of the big hits and has played in the domestic T20 league in Karnataka. This will be his first stint in the IPL.
