Cricket expert Harsha Bhogle has named two players, who look most settled in their new team in the 15th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. To note, several prominent players were either not retained or purchased back by their old franchises during the IPL mega auction. As a result, these players found a new home for themselves during IPL 2022 mega auction.
According to Harsha Bhogle, pace bowler Umesh Yadav and wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik have been doing an excellent job for their new team. Both Umesh and Karthik have been performing extremely well for their respective sides and are one of the prominent reasons for their team’s success in this edition so far.
He is finishing like he has not gone anywhere: Bhogle on Karthik
During a talk show, when it was asked about players who looked most settled in their new team, Harsha Bhogle picked Karthik and Umesh as his two choices. “I have two go with two names here, first is, of course, Dinesh Karthik goes back to RCB and he is finishing like he has not gone anywhere and the second is Umesh Yadav at KKR. I know he has been at KKR gone back, returned and that’s the nature in IPL cricket, but Umesh Yadav and Dinesh Karthik, I am very happy with those two choices,” Bhogle said while speaking to Cricbuzz.
After not playing a lot of cricket in the IPL over the last couple of seasons, Umesh Yadav has set the stage on fire with the new ball. He has picked wickets more often in his first spell. So far Yadav has accounted for nine wickets in four matches and proudly dons the proudly purple cap.
As for Karthik, he was a part of two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders but was released by the franchise before the mega auction. The right-handed batter was picked up by the Red Army at a price of INR 5.50 crore. Batting down the order, Karthik has been playing extremely well for his franchise in this edition.
