IPL 2022: Previous Season’s Talents Who are on the Bench.

IPL 2022 his halfway through and a few previous season stars are finding it tough to break into their elevens.

IPL 2022 continues to roll on after the Mega Auction. The Mega Auction saw some suprising and interesting buys, and below are a few players who were bought for their exploits in the previous seasons but have still not been used despite being in decent touch following IPL 2021.

Kartik Tyagi

Kartik Tyagi was a key member in the Royals bowling line-up last season. His pace and aggression made him a valuable asset in a line-up with Jofra Archer. Last season, without Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi continued to be effective when given chances. His success found him a spot on the touring Indian team to Australia, and he also defended four runs in the final over against PBKS to bring him into the spotlight.

He was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the auction ahead of IPL 2022. With a string of pacers such as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik and T Natarajan ahead of him, Kartik Tyagi is left warming the bench and is still waiting for his chance in IPL 2022

Chetan Sakariya

Chetan Sakariya was the find of IPL 2022 with his left-arm seam bowling. He took some key wickets last season and turned out to be a key member in their bowling unit. His left-arm variety brings a new dimension to the line-up, and his success last season also saw him get into the Indian Team.

This season, he is with the Delhi Capitals, but hasn’t been given a chance up until now as the Capitals went with the experience of Khaleel Ahmed. Eight games in, Sakariya finally got a go in his eighth game and did a handy job, which could help him keep his place for a few more games in IPL 2022.

Anrich Nortje

Anrich Nortje was retained by the Delhi Capitals but is coming off a long injury lay-off. He was one of their best bowlers over the last two years, rattling teams with raw pace, but hasn’t looked himself in the one game he played for them so far. Struggling to find rhythm and with constant niggles, Anrich Nortje has only managed only one game out of eight, but is likely to comeback into the side soon considering he is a key member of the pace attack.

KS Bharat

KS Bharat was a key member in the RCB side last season as a keeper and a number three batter. He was consistent through the season and also won them a last over thriller against the Delhi Capitals. His performances helped him earn a spot in the Indian team, and in the auctions he was hot property.

He ended up in the Delhi Capitals, but to his misfortune the side already has a strong keeper in Rishabh Pant who is irreplaceable After aa wonderful season last year, KS Bharat has spent a lot of time on the bench in IPL 2022 and may only get his chance if the Delhi Capitals select him as a pure batter.

Abdul Samad

Abdul Samad was a surprise retention for SRH. He has a reputation for hitting big shots in the end and has cleared the ropes on a number of occasions in the death overs to get SRH to decent positions. His statistics aren’t the most colorful, but the 20-year old has shown some potential in the past as to why he could be a handy player in the side.

After being retained though, Abdul Samad has only played two games, scoring four runs and all of a sudden his retention doesn’t look too good. With SRH having a settled line-up, he is unlikely to get too many games this year and will mostly remain on the bench through IPL 2022 despite the early potential shown.
