Future stars of IPL 2022: The Indian Premier League is one of the most elite franchise leagues across the cricketing roster of the world performing well in which can easily establish you as one of the finest cricketers or even in your own nation.
The league promises some stiff competition, performing in which is no easy feat. In fact, it is such a cutthroat contest that players may just have to remain assuaged with one chance and if he fails to prove it, life gets difficult from thereon.
Like the way life gets very challenging in IPL, similarly playing well in it can easily pave the path for one’s rise to prominence. Coming to the latest edition of the tournament, this tradition will continue to serve all the players who are going to be a part of the team.
In this story, let us take a look at five cricketers who can cement themselves in the glittering echelons of the elites who are also labelled as superstars of the sport, after IPL 2022.
Devdutt Padikkal has proven himself time and time again in the franchise extravaganza in the last couple of years. An exceptionally fearless striker of the ball, Padikkal can rake up an early storm in IPL 2022, targeting the bowlers using the fielding restrictions. He brought about a total change in his batting style that saw him switching gears from the calm and restrained to a blazing scorcher of the cherry. Despite failing to rack up something big in the Indian colours, Padikkal’s ability to thrive under pressure can be the game-changer for this season.
The young leg-spinner has been turning quite a few heads since his arrival at the big stage. Even though the international arcade is still to witness him blow at his fullest potential, yet Ravi Bishnoi has already been doing a brilliant job in the IPL. He can turn the ball by a good deal and adheres to a very fine line. Playing in the Indian colours, Bishnoi has already gathered valuable experience that will help him hone his skills further, a prime boost for a leg-spinner. IPL 2022 is going to be a massive season for the young leggie.
Known as Baby AB, Brevis made the headlines before the IPL 2022 auction after a fiery display in the latest edition of the Youth World Cup. He is a fine stroke player and can stitch his shots comfortably without any ado despite being new in the circuit. He is one of the best names in the youth circuit and for the first time will be starring in a cricketing fest where the great and the good of the cricket industry converge. His ability to convert starts into big knocks is another impressive feature of the South African cricketing roster.
Chetan Sakariya had a decent IPL in 2021 but somewhere he lacked the killer sting in ascendancy that thwarted his growth in the IPL. However, the young medium-fast bowler lost his touch once the caravan shifted to UAE. On the Indian flat tracks, he can be a complete destructor given his medium pace and a stringent line that he follows. He keeps it as straight as he can and resorts to the line of the stumps. More importantly, he has an intriguing variation of pace that he uses clinically to keep the runs in check in the death overs, a crucial phase for the batters in the shortest format of the game. IPL 2022 can open the gates for a bigger and better things for Chetan.
Finn Allen has had intermittent bursts of brilliance across his domestic days. He is a fine player in the shorter format but the craze around him is limited. The limelight that usually follows isn’t really evident in the case of Allen. He is still to strike around in a bigger stage and the IPL can be the perfect moment for the wicket-keeping batter. The man walks around with a strike rate of 190 plus and can be a storm if he gets going, especially on the flat tracks of India.
