5. Umran Malik

Umran Malik’s reputation right now is a cryogenic rocket on steroids. It is burgeoning beyond measure. Stamping himself as the league’s undisputed fastest bowler, the Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler has now displayed that his control is right up there as well.

4. Rahul Tripathi

IPL 2022, however, has seen Tripathi turn it up a notch. Striking at 175.21m Tripathi has been the most destructive among all top order batters in IPL 2022. He has been a consistent performer for Sunrisers Hyderabad as they bounced off the blocks to win five games on the trot.

3. T Natarajan

But come IPL 2022, ‘Salem Starc’ has made a strong case for himself with 15 wickets from seven matches at an average of 14.53. His strong showing has been a big part of the unprecedented revival of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPl 2022 with five wins on the trot.

2. Kuldeep Yadav

While Kuldeep took the cricket world by storm between Champions Trophy 2017 and ODI World Cup 2019, the time thereafter could best be described as underwhelming. At worst, it is a proper nightmare. Not only the Indian team, the spinner had to endure the ignominy of being side-lined from his IPL side as well.

1. Dinesh Karthik

The first name that pops up is Dinesh Karthik. Striking at 200 this season, the veteran wicket-keeper batter has scored 210 runs so far this season while being dismissed just twice in eight outings. He has adapted well in the No.6 slot and has been RCB’s game changer in IPL 2022.
