5. Hayden Kerr

This Aussie cricketer made massive headlines during the playoff stages of BBL 11. The all-rounder eventually panned out to be the biggest match-winner for Sixers in the competition. Impressively the left-arm pacer also finished with the second most wickets (25).

4. Roston Chase

Even with regards to batting, the 29-year old had topped charts in the last CPL. As a batter who likes batting deep and piling big scores, Chase can dwell in the top five positions. The decent-sized boundaries can also encourage him to consistently clear the ropes. Very smoothly, the West Indian can step in even for floaters like Nitish Rana or Ryan Parag.

3. Ben Cutting

Perhaps if an opportunity arises in IPL 2022 then Cutting can replace the explosive all-rounders. In general, the cricketer can even step in for batting all-rounders like Mitchell Marsh or Jimmy Neesham. Even for bowling all-rounders like Odean Smith, Sean Abbott or Mohammad Nabi, the 35-year old looks an interesting choice.

2. Moises Henriques

Particularly, as a top-order batter, he can bat deep and control the middle passage of play. Also smashing big hits won’t be his forte but Henriques has played some game-changing cameos. Overall in IPL 2022, the cricketer can replace the likes of Vijay Shankar, Rishi Dhawan or Daryl Mitchell.

1. Shakib Al Hasan

In fact with IPL 2022 happening at modestly sized venues, Shakib’s batting will also fruitfully come into play. By dwelling himself in the top five, the batter can be used as a floater or a top-order prospect. Also with regards to his bowling skill, the variations at the flat decks will be an asset for many captains.
