This season of IPL 2022 has been full of ups and downs. Who’d have guessed that the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), would suffer one of their poorest seasons ever in the IPL? Nobody would have imagined that a good club like the Mumbai Indians would falter this season. Another pleasant surprise this year was the performance of two new teams, the Gujarat Titans (GT) and the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). While Gujarat has already qualified for the playoffs after winning 10 of their 13 games, Lucknow is only one game away from qualifying after winning 8 of their 13 games.
Take a look at our top 4 players from IPL 2022 who left impact on audience
JOS BUTTLER (Rajasthan Royals)
This season, Buttler has been on fire. RR bought him for Rs 10 crore during the auctions. Buttler has two centuries this season, one against Kolkata Knight Riders (103 off 61 balls) and the other against Delhi Capitals (116 off 65 balls). Buttler annihilated several attacking bowlers while opening for Rajasthan with Yashasvi Jaiswal.
KL RAHUL (LSG)
Rahul has led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) with authority this season. With the bat also, he has delivered his part. Bagged at Rs 17 crore ahead of the auctions by Lucknow franchise, he led his team from the front. Like Butler, he scored two centuries this time, and both the times it was against Mumbai Indians.
UMRAN MALIK (SRH)
The season for the Jammu Pacers was one to remember. Umran, who was coached by Dale Steyn in Hyderabad, went on to become the IPL’s quickest bowler. In one match, he hit 154 kmph twice in the same over. This was also the quickest delivery thus far this season. Malik took four wickets while allowing 34 runs in the recent encounter against KKR.
DAVID WARNER (Delhi Capitals)
David Warner has been brilliant this season. He had a terrible season in 2021 when he was benched in the middle of the tournament and wasn’t retained by the Hyderabad franchise ahead of the auctions. But, Warner seemed to have got a new lease of life playing for Delhi Capitals. He was acquired by Delhi at 6.25 crore.
