Top 5 Finds of IPL 2022
Here are the top 5 players that may be considered as the finds of the IPL 2022 :
IPL 2022 has been a breakout season in Umran Malik’s career. Ha has been the highlight of IPL this season. The ‘Kashmiri Express’ has won the fastest delivery award in all the 14 matches that he has played in. He also features in the list of top wicket-takers of the season picking up 22 wickets in total including a fifer against the most impressive side of this IPL, the Gujarat Titans. His eye-catching performances back to back have earned him an Indian call-up. His achievements made him our first pick in this regard.
The leftie has had an excellent season as opener for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Scoring 400+ runs at an average of more than 30, Abhishek has displayed some exclusive shots against the new ball. The class in the batsman was clearly visible in each of his innings. Abhishek outclassed his opening partner, the legend Kane Williamson with the bat this season. He stands second in our list.
The Punjab lad might not have had enough wickets in the bag, but he has been the most impressive death bowler in this year’s IPL. So much so that he has easily surpassed the world-class Kagiso Rabada in this regard. Arshdeep has delivered in each and every game for the Punjab Kings whenever they have thrown the ball to him. Along with Umran Malik, Arshdeep has also been rewarded with a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming South Africa series as a result of his constant performances throughout the season. That has also earned him a place on this list.
Ever since he has got an opportunity, Rajat Patidar has flown with all colours for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Initially, he couldn’t find a team in the Mega Auction. Rajat came in as an injury replacement and he has not looked back since. He has looked the best RCB batsman in the top order in whatever matches he has featured in. With a score of 112 in 54 balls in the Eliminator against LSG, he became the first uncapped player to score a century in the playoffs. With impressive display of temperament and skill in back to back matches of the playoffs, Rajat Patidar is also a major find of this year’s IPL.
Another left armer finds a place in the list. Mohsin Khan has looked the most impressive pacer for the Lucknow Super Giants this year. The purchase that he gets off the surface with the new ball is notable. His accuracy and control over line & length have also been phenomenal. Mohsin averages 14 with the ball this year and has a total of 14 wickets in 9 matches. The remarkable performances in the display have marked him as one of the best finds of this year’s IPL.
