Although the team’s performance in the IPL 2022 has been dismal, Mukesh has proven to be a blessing in disguise. Deepak Chahar was ruled out of the league before the squad’s season opener, and his capacity to take wickets in the first few overs was going to be missed. They were compelled to involve Mukesh in the team, and thus far the strategy has worked brilliantly.
The 25-year-old has turned heads with his outstanding new-ball delivery after getting taken for runs in his first two matches. He’s taken 16 wickets in eleven games, including a four-wicket haul against SRH and a three wicket haul against MI previously.

The defending champions, the Super Kings, are ranked ninth in the points table, while the Titans, who are currently in first position, are the only side to have qualified for the playoffs thus far.
