The sixth week of IPL has culminated with the Mumbai Indians stunning the table-toppers Gujarat Titans in a thrilling final-over finish. Still, both the teams have held on to their original positions in the points table.

The battle for finishing in the top four seems to intensify with each passing game. Only Chennai and Mumbai are all but out of reckoning, with each of the other eight teams still very much in contention for the playoffs race. Meanwhile, let’s have a look at the best performances from the overseas players after the sixth week of IPL 2022.

The pocket-sized dynamite from Australia is having yet another great IPL season. He has already accumulated 356 runs so far at an average nearing 60 and a strike rate over 155. This week, he had a rare failure against the Lucknow Super Giants where he could manage only three runs.

However, he made up in the very next game, by striking a commendable 92*(58) where he clobbered three maximums and 12 fours. Together with Rovman Powell, he forged a 100-plus partnership to post a competitive score of 207.  He took calculated risks and was in complete control of his game as he carried his bat through the innings.

Ironically, it came against his former franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), he had helped them lift the title in 2016. While SRH may no longer consider Warner a captaincy option, he has been chosen to lead this side not only due to his seniority but because of his newly found sense of reassurance and calmness that he brings.
