Scoring at a blistering strike rate of 131.02, Tilak accumulated 397 runs in 14 innings for Mumbai. What impressed one and all was the composure with which Tilak batted and the reverse sweep six of Ashwin is still fresh in the minds of prominent cricket lovers. If Tilak continues on the confidence from the IPL and performs in the domestic arena, a national call-up for him isn’t far away.
In the eight innings Mohsin has featured for Lucknow in IPL 2022, he has picked up 13 wickets with the best bowling strike rate of 13.38, amongst all the LSG bowlers. More than the wickets, Mohsin’s control over the line and length and ability to hit the deck hard makes him stand apart. This deadly combination can only make Mohsin a better bowler than what he is already.
Brevis didn’t get the opportunity to play the entire IPL 2022 given some permutations and combinations being tested by the Mumbai management. In the seven innings that Dewald featured for Mumbai, he scored 161 runs at a strike rate of 142.47, which has been raising eyebrows everywhere. It will be just a matter of time when Dewald explodes on the international circuit too, just like he did in the Under-19 World Cup.
Umran took 22 scalps in this IPL with a threatening strike rate of 13.40, which was the best amongst all the SRH bowlers. Umran was not just the highest wicket taker for the Sunrisers, but the Jammu speedster also broke into the top five wicket takers across all teams. If Malik continues the same, he will be the next big thing in the Indian setup.
Arshdeep has been the most economical bowler for Punjab Kings this season with an economy rate of 7.70. One thing that has stood out for Arshdeep as compared to other bowlers has been the calmness and self-belief in nailing those yorkers under pressure. It is pretty evident that Arshdeep will be a potential candidate to fill up the left-arm pacer spot for India for years to come now.
