When a person hears the word IPL, they would remember it as a forum for wholesome cricketing entertainment. Also, this tournament has been a gateway to several prodigies who have shown their remarkable performances through their game. So, here is a list of the five domestic players who can be influential in the upcoming edition of the 2022 IPL.
Shahrukh Khan (Punjab Kings)
As the above name is not what I am correlating with the Bollywood ka Baadshah, he happens to be one of the most promising cricketers in the game. Shahrukh Khan possesses the ability to provide some swashbuckling innings with his bat. Even in the recent domestic tournaments, he has proved to be a valuable finisher for his team, Tamil Nadu. So, there is no surprise that he would display that same in a tournament like IPL.
Sheldon Jackson (Kolkata Knight Riders)
When it comes to an Indian player known for his impeccable performance in the domestic format, you might find the name of Sheldon Jackson. The wicket-keeper batter from Saurashtra is predominant for providing some crucial runs with the bat. Even beneficial with his wicketkeeping gloves. Though he has been a part of two IPL franchises, he hasn’t yet played many of the matches to prove his skillset. But in the upcoming edition, he might get a chance to do that for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Rahul Tripathi (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Rahul Tripathi, a batter from Maharashtra Cricket Team, came into the limelight after his splendid performance for his debut IPL team, Rising Pune Supergiants. Whatever the franchise he has been a part of, he has been a valuable run-getter for the team. And several cricket fanatics hope to see his same and consistent performance for his new franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Tilak Verma (Mumbai Indians)
The Hyderabad opener, Tilak Verma, played a crucial role in a good streak of team Hyderabad in the recently concluded Ranji Trophy. He had maintained his consistent hard-hitting batting, amassing more runs and a higher strike rate. We might see the same from him in the upcoming edition for the Mumbai Indians.
Umran Malik (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
The Jammu pacer holds the record for the quickest delivery in the whole history of IPL by an Indian player (153 km/h). Thanks to his pace and thunderbolt deliveries; the batters have a tough time on the crease. And we hope to see the same quality pace deliveries from the man in the upcoming edition; while he dons the orange jersey of the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
