The IPL 2022 season will begin on March 26. The Chennai Super Kings and the Kolkata Knight Riders could very well square off. The Mumbai Indians set a new record by trying to win their fifth IPL championship after having defeated the Delhi Capitals in the final. IPL 2022 will feature ten groups, making it an even more competitive event. In this article, we focus on five batsmen that have the potential to completely destroy the opposition in the race for the Orange Cap. The IPL 2022 Orange Cap is given to the player who scores the most runs.
The Delhi Capitals managed to reach the IPL 2020 final, and Shreyas Iyer shared a great deal of the credit for the team’s success. DC skipper Iyer was the team’s leading run-scorer, amassing 519 runs in 17 matches.
In the competition, he averaged 34.60 and ended up scoring three half-centuries. His highest total had been an unbeaten 88-run knock. Iyer has left the Delhi Capitals and will therefore give rise to the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022.
In the Indian Premier League’s 2020 version, David Warner has been the third-highest run-scorer. He did score 548 runs in 16 games, averaging 39.14. Warner had also started playing 150 IPL matches and had scored 5,449 runs. In the tournament, the left-handed batsman hit four half-centuries and also an unbeaten 85. He does have 4 hundred and 50 half-centuries, making him a player to keep an eye on. The Australian will represent the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League in 2022.
Shikhar Dhawan will be a member of the Punjab Kings in the IPL 2022. During the tournament, the batsman hit four half-centuries and two centuries. Shikhar Dhawan finished the IPL 2020 season as the second-highest run-scorer. The left-handed batter batted left-handed and averaged 44.14 runs per game. The Punjab Kings have chosen Dhawan for the upcoming version of the world championship. In terms of IPL runs scored, the batsman is now only second to Virat Kohli. Dhawan requires 216 runs to reach 6,000.
In the IPL 2020, KL Rahul has been the standout performer. He ended up winning the orange cap after averaging 55.83 runs per game in 14 games and scoring 670 runs in 14 games. KL Rahul, the captain of the Punjab Kings, hit five fifties and one undefeated century during the tournament. KL Rahul has left Punjab Kings to join Lucknow SuperGiants for the 2022 season.
After being relieved of the captaincy, India and Royal Challengers Bangalore star Virat Kohli are scheduled to speak more openly and try to regain their touch. When in full flow, the top-order batter seems to be a joy to watch, and he’ll be eager to prove himself as such an enforcer. Virat Kohli is the all-time leading run-scorer with a lucrative record, having gathered 6,283 runs from 207 matches.
