Dinesh Karthik picks the three most impressive young Indian pacers in IPL 2022
Matches: 13 | Wickets: 10 | Economy: 7.82
The Punjab Kings bowler has been a part of the U19 team that lifted the World Cup Trophy in 2018. He has been a start of PBKS since 2019 and has earned a reputation for his performance in the last couple of years. The pacer has been impressive in the death overs. Last year, Arshdeep Singh picked 18 wickets in 12 matches. Therefore, he was one of the players that Punjab Kings retained ahead of the IPL Mega Auction 2022. Despite bowling majorly in the death, he maintains an economy of 7.82, in IPL 2022 so far.
“[I have been impressed by] Arshdeep Singh because he has been so good at the death, I think he has bowled some lovely yorkers and has a lot of control. Even though they have a world-class bowler (Kagiso Rabada) in their lineup, at times, he has stood up for them solely with the ball and I enjoy that about him.”Dinesh Karthik
Matches: 7 | Wickets: 9 | Economy: 9.38
The 24-year-old medium-pacer has made an impression in his debut IPL season. Often termed Zaheer Khan 2.0, Yash Dayal was bought by Gujarat Titans for a whopping INR 3.20 crores. His impressive performance for UP in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22 had transferred the team’s confidence in him. He scalped 14 wickets in the tournament. Moreover, he maintained an economy of a mere 3.78 after playing 7 matches. He picked 3 wickets giving only 40 runs in his debut against Rajasthan Royals. Therefore, he has been consistently playing for the team since then.
“He has been a terrific find. He has been able to move the ball both ways with the new ball and I enjoy that about him.”Dinesh Karthik
Matches: 8 | Wickets: 13 | Economy: 5.93
Mumbai Indians benched Mohsin Khan for 4 years before he was bought by LSG in IPL 2022. The left-arm pacer made the most out of the opportunities LSG has handed to him. In only 8 matches, he snapped 13 wickets with an impressive economy of 5.93. Playing a very important match against KKR, Mohsin has showcased maturity in his bowling. With his 20/3 contributing to the team’s win, Lucknow has qualified for the playoffs.
“He got picked late in the tournament but he is making sure when he bowls, the heavy ball that he bowls … he has bowled some brilliant spells. He has consistently bowled at less than six runs an over, and he has been really impressive with his slower ball as well.”Dinesh Karthik
