IPL 2022 can have many new players coming in due to the emergence of two new teams.
The Indian Premier League is one the most lucrative and toughest T20 leagues in the world. To be a part of the IPL, a player has to be impressive in some other league or tournament. And if one succeeds in the IPL, usually the gate to the national side becomes wide open. It is all about handling the pressure.
Pressure is a common word in a tournament like the IPL. Even if a player succeeds in another league, the price tag pressure is too hot to handle. Many players made it to the IPL but failed at the big stage.
Similarly, many players were sold at the base price. But later on, they became match winners for their country. Numerous players have the potential, but they missed out at the auction. So, here are
10 cricketers that may see their first contract in IPL 2022
10. Joe Clarke
Joe Clarke is one of the most popular names in English cricket right now. Although he has been in the shadows of a powerful England limited-overs side, his talents are speaking for him. He is a stylish middle-order batsman and is a talented wicketkeeper.
Clarke has been a part of Karachi Kings in the PSL. Adding on, he has played for the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League. In three games, he has scored 44 runs for the Perth-based franchise. He has a healthy strike rate of 183.33 in the BBL.
This middle-order wicketkeeper-batsman will be a valuable addition to any team he plays for. The new franchises could eye on Clarke as their long-term player. An unknown face with an ability to play attacking cricket can take any opposition by surprise.
