8. Kolkata Knight Riders – Shubman Gill

Gujarat Titans roped Shubman Gill in the pre-draft and the youngster has already proved his antics with the bat. In the ongoing season, Shubman has been impressive, scoring 84 runs in two innings. KKR, on the other hand, added veteran Ajinkya Rahane as an opener, who has failed to leave an impact on the team and has managed to score only 72 runs in four innings.

7. Mumbai Indians- Hardik Pandya

Gujarat Titans made Hardik their captain for the 2022 season and the all-rounder from Baroda is looking quite fresh after a long break from cricket. In two appearances in the tournament, he has garnered 64 runs and has also looked in a good rhythm with the ball.

6. RCB- Yuzvendra Chahal

Rajasthan Royals team included him in his armory for the 2022 season and has turned out to be the best bowler for them. In three matches, Chahal has bagged seven wickets at an economy of 5.25, while he returned with 2/15 off four overs against RCB  as well.

5. Sunrisers Hyderabad- Rashid Khan

The Afghan spin wizard was eventually signed by Gujarat Titans in the 2022 edition and has two scalps in two matches. The current SRH squad does not have a specialist spinner in their rank and has failed to rope in an apt replacement for Rashid. They have Washington Sundar but he lacks the quality of Rashid.

4. Chennai Super Kings – Faf du Plessis

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) roped him at the mega auction, a decision that has paid dividends so far in IPL 2022. Faf, who was appointed as the captain, is the leading run-scorer for his side with 122 runs in three innings. CSK, on the other hand, is still on the search for a good option to open alongside Ruturaj Gaikwad.

3. Rajasthan Royals- Rahul Tewatia

The current Rajasthan Royals team does not have enough potent Indian finishers with proven experiences under their belt. The team is playing with Riyan Parag and Ravichandran Ashwin at no. six and no. seven respectively, who are not known for their finishing abilities.

2. Punjab Kings- KL Rahul

In place of Rahul, PBKS acquired experienced Shikhar Dhawan to open along with Mayank Agarwal in IPL 2022. Although Dhawan has been a quality run-scorer at the top order in the IPL, it will be tough for him to match Rahul’s supremacy for the Punjab franchise.

1. Delhi Capitals- Avesh Khan

In the ongoing season, he already has picked up seven wickets in three appearances for LSG, with a match-winning performance of 4/24 in the latest outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Although Delhi has the likes of Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur in their ranks, they are yet to make a mark in the competition.
