IPL 2022: Best Indian XI from the third week of the tournament
Indian cricketers have stepped up their game in this week of IPL 2022
The 15th edition of the biggest cricketing extravaganza also known as the Indian Premier League (IPL) has begun in style with many matches going down to the final ball of the over to produce great results. The tournament has made some key players regain their form while also producing some new stars who would go on to represent their country shortly.
IPL has always been a mix of bags with both Indians and overseas players showcasing their talent on the grandest stage. One could argue who has the upper hand in IPL i.e whether it is Indians or the foreigners when it comes to consistent performance and providing new talent every single year.
This year has been no less fight as there have been some very good performances so far with many young players showcasing their talent while some regained their old form. However, it has been the Indians who have conquered the tournament so far and this article looks at the best Indian XI compiled by considering only the third week.
Best Indian playing XI from week 3 of IPL 2022
1. Robin Uthappa
Robin Uthappa has had a decent tournament so far with him majorly contributing to the team’s overall total. Uthappa batted at No. 3 in the IPL 2022 opener but after Devon Conway’s poor outing against the Knight Riders, the management decided to move Uthappa to the top to open with Ruturaj Gaikwad.
After being promoted to open the innings, he showcased his class by striking a brilliant half-century against the Lucknow Super Giants. He then missed out on a couple of innings but managed to score big during the game against the Royal Challengers Banglore which happened in week three. He made an impactful 88 off 50 balls which made the side post a total of 216/4.
If Uthappa continues this form then he may very well have a great season with the Super Kings while also being the front runner in getting the Orange Cap. It will be the second time if he gets the cap as he has done once before when he was with the Kolkata franchise back in 2014.
