IPL 2022 is going to be an exciting season with two new teams in the mega auction ahead of the season.

However, they are not the only people who have been finalized by the franchise ahead of the mega auction.

Steyn has 97 wickets in 95 IPL matches playing for three different franchises. He played for Deccan Chargers, Gujarat Lions, and Royal Challengers Bangalore during his career in the IPL. Reportedly, SRH are also looking to get former India and Tamil Nadu all-rounder Hemang Badani onto their coaching staff as they start afresh from IPL 2022.
