So far, the Indian Premier League’s 15th edition has captured several people by surprise. For the first time in the tournament’s history, the ‘Player of the Match’ award seems to have been given to only Indian players for a stretch of 10 matches.
Rinku Singh’s match-changing effort enabled Kolkata Knight Riders break a five-match winless streak in IPL 2022 by defeating Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets. KKR’s win at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday gave them a chance to make the playoffs.
Ruturaj Gaikwad eventually found his feet in IPL 2022 after a shaky start, hitting 99 off just 57 balls as CSK posted a huge 202 for two in their 20 overs.
In the 45th match of the IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 1, Lucknow Super Giants bowler Mohsin Khan took the crucial wicket of Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant as the Delhi-based side fought to keep up with the run pace.
Suryakumar Yadav hit scored his third fifty of the IPL season to help Mumbai Indians overcome Rajasthan Royals and claim their first victory of the season.
Gujarat Titans’ Rahul Tewatia assisted them in pulling off yet another incredible comeback, one such time against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Krunal went on to take three wickets, including Pollard’s in the final over, to help Lucknow win by 36 runs against a struggling Mumbai side.
Umran Malik of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has been a sensation in the IPL 2022. He’s bowled at a fast pace, consistently hitting 150, and he’s also improved his line and lengths while bowling in the middle overs.
This IPL, Rahul has batted with an air of authority. He smashed five sixes, three in front and two behind the wicket, with a flash of touch and timing before falling for a 51-ball 77.
This is the FIRST time the Player of the Match 10+ consecutive IPL matches was given to an Indian.
