IPL 2022: Best Overseas XI - Week Five
The race for playoffs seems to be getting all the more interesting, with all teams but Mumbai Indians effectively in contention.
As KL Rahul and his bowlers managed to defend a par score against the Punjab Kings, his side moved to third on the points table, with the Gujarat Titans firmly on top. Now that we are in the second half of the TATA IPL, the race for playoffs seems to be getting all the more interesting, with all teams but Mumbai Indians effectively in contention.
Now that the fifth week of IPL 2022 is done, let us have a look at some of the best performances by overseas players in the week gone by. Here is the best Overseas XI from Week five –
1. David Warner
One of the most consistent players in IPL history, David Warner is a reliable bank when it comes to solidity at the top of the order. He holds the record for the most number of half-centuries in the tournament.
Warner has always been amongst the runs, with only last year being the exception. This year, he is back to his consistent ways. Despite playing only six games so far, he has managed to score 261 runs with as many as three fifties to his name.
This week, though he played only one game, was the chief architect behind his side’s win. Chasing a modest score of 147, Warner gave the Delhi Capitals (DC) a blazing start. He scored 42 runs, consisting of eight boundaries, thereby laying the platform for a crucial win for his side.
