5. Sherfane Rutherford

In the CPL 2021, Rutherford smashed 262 runs in 11 matches at an average of 37.42, with the highest score of 58*, and played a key role in helping St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots to secure their maiden title victory in the history of the tournament. He followed it up by scoring 160 runs for Peshawar Zalmi in nine appearances of PSL 2021/22.

4. Andrew Tye

In 32 T20Is, Tye has picked up 47 wickets and has 12 wickets in seven ODI appearances. But he donned the Australian jersey last in August 2021 and was not picked for the T20 World Cup 2021 as well. But his form in the BBL 2021/22 was praiseworthy, where he scalped 25 wickets in 16 matches.

3. Riley Meredith

Meredith was picked up by the Mumbai Indians team for the IPL 2022 for a hefty price and will serve as the third pace-bowling option along with Jasprit Bumrah and Mills. If Mills’ form drops or the team decides to have two overseas pacers, Meredith can be perfect to take wickets in the power-play or the death overs.

2. Bhanuka Rajapaksa

The fitness issues have kept Rajapaksa devoid of donning the Sri Lanka jersey for quite some time. Due to the issues with the Sri Lanka cricket board, he had announced his retirement in January as well but soon made a U-turn after consultation with the sports minister. Although, he was not picked for the Australia and India series as well.

1. Shimron Hetmyer

In the 2022 edition of the tournament, Hetmyer has garnered 67 runs in two appearances at a fantastic strike rate of 248.15 for the Rajasthan Royals team and thereby helping the team to secure victories on both occasions. He is surely the one player to look out for this season, who can come back to their national side.
