IPL 2022 – Three teams who have the best death bowlers in their squad

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 begins on March 26 with the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, taking on Kolkata Knight Riders. In the IPL 2022 Auction, all teams put their best foot forward to recruit bowlers who would be their lethal weapons to win the title.

The T20 format is regarded as a cruel game for the bowlers, who can be smacked all over the park due to the thick willow and the batters’ inventiveness. Death bowling is a rare skill that only a few bowlers have mastered.

Three of the four IPL 2022 venues have short boundaries, giving bowlers little or no room for error. In this article, we are going to name the three teams that have the best death bowlers in their squad.

Number 3. Royal Challengers Bangalore

One of the tournament’s most popular teams kept Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell and trusted Mohammed Siraj with the pace. They will be captained by Faf du Plessis, who was second in run-scoring last season. They have a great bowling unit that can wreak havoc on the opposition.

Harshal Patel, who took 32 wickets in IPL 2021, will look to repeat his success this season. Josh Hazlewood was a wicket-taker for CSK in the UAE leg of the IPL 2021 and helped Australia win the T20 World Cup 2021.

Mohammed Siraj, the aggressive fast bowler, is in top form and has excelled in all formats of the game.

Dependable options – Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj

Number 2. Gujarat Titans

They will be making their IPL debut this year. Prior to the mega auction, the team signed Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, and Shubman Gill. They are ranked fourth on this list, with quality bowlers in their respective international teams.

Lockie Ferguson, a New Zealand fast bowler, took 13 wickets in eight appearances last season and will lead the attack. Mohammed Shami has been expensive in the T20s, but he brings experience to the team.

Rahul Tewatia, Sai Kishore, and Rashid Khan could be in the XI. Rashid Khan may be given a chance to put pressure on the opposition with his line and length in the death overs.

Dependable Options – Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan

Number 1. Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians kept captain Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Kieron Pollard. Due to injury concerns, the team expects Jofra Archer to join them in 2023.

The team with the best batting line-up will rely on Jasprit Bumrah and Tymal Mills, who can pose a threat to the opposition batsmen with their pace and bounce.

They have two foreign fast bowlers, and Riley Meredith can wreak havoc, especially at Wankhede. Alternatively, the team can select Jaydev Unadkat.
