The IPL 2022 season, cricket’s biggest festival, is almost over. The event has now reached its conclusion. All of the teams gave excellent performances, and we saw a lot of new faces on the field. The IPL’s mission was to encourage emerging talent, and it has certainly done so. This season’s finds have been numerous. So, who are the five most likely candidates for the IPL 2022 developing player of the year award? Here’s a basic rundown:
Ayush Badoni plays for LSG in IPL 2022:
Ayush Badoni, a sensation from Lucknow, burst onto the scene at the start of the season. When he got to the IPL, this short Delhi guy had a lot to prove. In age-group cricket, he was also coached by Rahul Dravid. He has represented India at the U-19 level. Gautam Gambhir discovered this young man. What a treasure he is! His runs may be few, but they have an impact. The scores can range from 30 to 20 to 25, but they’ve all arrived in seven, eight, or twelve balls. That puts a lot of emphasis on Aayush’s finishing ability. He is capable of playing the 360-degree game. Even before Dewald Brevis, Badoni was referred to as BABY AB! He has a strike rate of 160 for LSG!
Dewald Brevis played for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2022:
The Mumbai Indians paid 3 crores for “BABY AB,” as he is known in the cricket fraternity. Although the sum spent was substantial, it appears that the team has garnered significant benefits. Dewald’s innings have been brief but significant, similar to Aayush’s. He hammered India’s top spinner, Rahul Chahar, for 29 runs in an over with four consecutive sixes. If he keeps his head on his shoulder, the event has assured that this boy has a great future. Dewald is expected to be a reliable number three batsman for the Mumbai Indians. He has an excellent understanding of the game and the strokes necessary to score big.
Abhishek Sharma played for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022:
Abhishek Sharma debuted in the IPL in 2019. He began his career with the Delhi Capitals but later switched to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Sunrisers paid a hefty 6.2 crores for him, and Abhishek has justified the cost. At times, he has carried the Sunrisers by himself. At the start of the innings, he was very sharp. Sharma either gets punished or dies. He has dealt with his batting partner Kane Williamson’s slow strike rate and bad form. He is a fantastic stroke player. Abhishek is a member of the elite group of players. With Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, and Ishan Porel, he won the U-19 world cup. In this IPL season, he has scored 350+ runs at a strike rate of above 140!
N Tilak Varma:
N Tilak Varma is one of the main competitors for the prize this time around. Tilak Varma was tasked with filling Suryakumar Yadav’s shoes while he was away, and he did it admirably. His performance against the Rajasthan Royals demonstrated his ability. He ventured to reverse sweep Ravi Ashwin for a six, as I had stated. His left-handedness offers him an advantage. He has handled all situations incredibly well for the Mumbai Indians. Mumbai still managed to uncover a world-class gem after the IPL 2021 star-studded squad was rearranged. Tilak was purchased for almost 2 crore Indian rupees, and his performance has more than justified that price.
The sensation of speed Umran Malik is one of the leading contenders for the title. This season, he’s been hitting insane speeds. He’s outrunning international batters. His bowling has improved under the direction of Dale Steyn. Umran has won the “Swiggy quickest delivery of the match” in every game he has participated. This demonstrates the consistency with which this young man operates.
Umran, who hails from the Indian town of Jammu, has already influenced a generation of young boys. He has a smooth run-up and jumps as well! His bowling action has a strong rhythm, which is why he is able to generate speed. After the IPL 2021 season, Umran was one of three uncapped players retained by all of the clubs. He is paid 4 crore rupees in India. Umran has already taken 18 wickets this season, demonstrating his value for money.
