The performance of IPL 2022 could bring many players back to Team India.

IPL 2022: Apart from all these names, some other players will also appear in the next two months, about whom you may not have heard much. These are the players who have been anonymously present in domestic cricket for years but have always kept the dream of joining Team India alive in their hearts.

IPL 2022


While bowling brilliantly for the Delhi Capitals, Kuldeep Yadav has come out against the Indian selectors at the right time and said, "You haven't forgotten me!" Although the dialogue was used by soft drink company Sourav Ganguly a decade ago, there are many experienced players in this IPL (IPL 2022) who are making their claim ahead of the T20 World Cup to be held in October-November this year. The best way to assert one's claim in this tournament is to win a match during the IPL. No matter how strong you are in domestic cricket, selectors will often ignore you because it is not discussed as loudly on social media as in the IPL.


Another player for Delhi, Akshar Patel has also performed like Kuldeep Yadav to come back at the right time. Akshar Patel has also claimed for the World Cup along with the kind of quick batting view he displayed in the moments of pressure against Mumbai Indians. The requirement is that there should be 4-5 more such matches during the tournament. In any case, Patel would not have forgotten how he got a place in the team earlier, but his card was cut at the last minute to include Hardik Pandya in the team.


But if this IPL is the most important for anyone player it is Hardik Pandya. The last two years have been extremely difficult for Pandya in IPL and international cricket. This time he has got additional responsibility of captaincy of Gujarat Titans. But if Pandya shines as an all-rounder, Gujarat will benefit not only but also personally. Pandya who is fit and in the form will bring a lot of strength to any captain.


It is also true that no one is talking about Virat Kohli at the moment, but if Kohli does not appear in the changed style in the IPL this time, then his ticket to Australia is not certain at all. In the top order, Rohit Sharma, Kohli, and KL Rahul batting at almost the same pace in the powerplay is problematic for the team. Thinking of keeping a player like Kohli out of the team is also a problem for selectors but in recent months it has become clear that Kohli's game has come down and it is imperative that he be able to regain that status through the IPL.


Mohammed Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin are two experienced bowlers who are very important to Team India in Test cricket and cannot be ignored even in the T20 format. Both players were part of the World Cup squad last time but both bowlers need to show the best game of their careers to get a ticket to Australia this season.


Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy are the two players who last joined the World Cup on the basis of IPL. But both failed to make their mark. His game has only declined since then. In such a scenario, if these two players make a splash in the IPL again this time, their claim could be even stronger.


Harshal Patel has made a good start to the tournament again for Royal Challengers Bangalore. New ball, old ball, powerplay or death over, Patel has proved his worth. He was one of the last reserve players for the World Cup. If he retains his power in the IPL for another two months this time, no one will be able to stop him from becoming a definite partner of Jaspreet Bumrah.

Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer has come to realize that even after a great game of local cricket, the journey to Team India becomes easier if consistency is shown in the IPL. In Pandya's absence, Iyer introduced himself as a selector's choice. But there are still questions over his bowling. If Iyer is able to impress with his bowling this season too, perhaps he can challenge Pandya's claim.


Apart from all these names, some other players will also appear in the next two months, about whom you may not have heard much. These are the players who have been anonymously present in domestic cricket for years but have always kept the dream of joining Team India alive in their hearts. For these players, the IPL platform may prove to be enough to ensure the sudden train of their careers in the first class of Rajdhani Express.
