We are done and dusted with the seventh week of IPL 2022 with Punjab Kings thrashing the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 54 runs. This result has now thrown the playoff qualification scenarios even more wide open than before, with as many as seven teams competing for the remaining three spots, Gujarat Titans have already qualified for the playoffs.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians are officially knocked out of the competition. Before we enter the final week of league games, let us have a look at the Best Overseas XI comprising of best performances by overseas players in the past week.
Here’s a look at the Best overseas XI after the seventh week of IPL 2022:
1. Devon Conway (CSK)
Ever since Devon Conway returned to the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp post his marriage, his form seems to have touched new highs. He continued his good form against the Delhi Capitals this week, although he had a rare failure in the last match against the Mumbai Indians.
Against DC, his team was in a do-or-die situation then, and he stepped up to the task. He struck five sixes and seven fours in his 49-ball 87. What was interesting to see was the fact that he counter-attacked DC’s in-form Kuldeep Yadav. He was rather unlucky in the next match, as he was dismissed for a first-ball duck, though he was hard done by the unavailability of DRS at that time due to power failure.
He has forged some successful opening partnerships with Ruturaj Gaikwad in the last few games. It would be fair to say that Chennai Super Kings have found an able replacement for du Plessis this season, and can only expect bigger things from him in the years to come.
