5 Players To Watch At The 2022 IPL
March 22, 2022 By Admin
The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League promises to be the biggest and the best. With the competition now expanded to include ten franchise teams, the largest domestic T20 tournament in the world will enjoy an extended season in 2022.
More teams mean more players and, among the hundreds of cricketers who will be taking part at IPL 15, we expect these names to stand out.
Teams To Beat
The most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League is the Mumbai Indians. They have won five of the previous 14 editions of the competition and are the bookmakers’ favorites to do so again in 2022.
According to Indian cricket betting sites attached to asiabet.org, Mumbai are in the clear, followed by the Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The one real surprise in the IPL winner market is the fact that defending champions Chennai Super Kings are one of three joint fourth favorites along with Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings.
As the competition draws closer, those markets have the capacity to change and the odds can adjust. Asiabet.org is ready to report on any changes and the new markets will be clearly conveyed to readers.
Articles on the tournament will also be in place and it’s possible to get involved directly with the betting. Visitors are able to register with any sportsbook that is referenced here. In many cases, there will be generous welcome bonuses listed in return for signing up.
Once that registration is confirmed, players will have a choice of deposit and withdrawal methods plus efficient customer service, mobile betting, and the potential for live streaming top-class sport.
That’s the assessment of the bookmakers but who are the players who can decide the destiny of the 15th edition of the IPL?
Liam Livingstone: Punjab Kings
England international Liam Livingstone has previously appeared in the IPL but he was something of a fringe player at Rajasthan Royals. His game has developed considerably in the last two years and he surely deserves more game time with his new franchise, the Punjab Kings.
Livingstone is known as a destructive batter but he’s also developed as a bowler. He can deliver a mix of leg-spin and off-spin and he’s turning into a top-level all-rounder.
Hardik Pandya: Gujarat Titans
He’s been a mainstay of the successful Mumbai Indians side for many years but Hardik Pandya has a new franchise for 2022. The all-rounder will also carry greater responsibility as he prepares to lead the new boys Gujarat Titans.
It’s been a difficult year for Hardik and he’s no longer an automatic choice for Indian national teams. However, he has the perfect opportunity to respond and to prove that he remains a force in all forms of cricket.
Devon Conway: Chennai Super Kings
He may have made a name for himself in the test match arena but New Zealand’s Devon Conway has the ability to adapt to the short formats. The Kiwi scored a brilliant 200 on test match debut but he also has two centuries in the shortest format and the highest score of 99 not out in T20 internationals.
Conway has been purchased by Chennai Super Kings who have a vacancy for a top order, left-handed batsman after releasing Suresh Raina. That wasn’t the most popular decision that CSK has ever made but some important contributions from Conway will have Chennai fans looking forward rather than back.
Ishan Kishan: Mumbai Indians
The most expensive player at the 2022 IPL Mega Auction was Ishan Kishan. Although he featured for Mumbai in 2021, the franchise had to buy back their own player and Kishan cost a cool 15.25 Crore.
The left-hander now has a lot to prove. He is a destructive batsman who can make big scores but he now needs to add some consistency to his considerable talent.
Pat Cummins: Kolkata Knight Riders
Australian paceman Pat Cummins was named national captain ahead of the 2021/22 Ashes Series and he’s led his side with competence and maturity.
Cummins is still capable of bowling seriously quick deliveries and that speed, coupled with his experience could help beaten 2021 finalists KKR to go one better this time.
