As teams try to find their best XI, let us have a look at one benched player that each franchise can bank upon for a regular place.
The 15th season of IPL has started with exuberance. In the first week of IPL 2022, some teams have found their perfect combination while most of the other teams are still struggling to get it right. It is time for think tanks of IPL teams to implement strategies they have chalked out during the IPL auction in February.
All teams have included some talented players in the squad. As teams try to find their best XI, let us have a look at one benched player that each franchise can bank upon for a regular place in the playing XI.
1. Ramandeep Singh (Mumbai Indians)
The five-time champions have struggled in the first three games this season. They have struggled to put a well-balanced playing XI that has yielded results so far for them. The 25-year-old all-rounder from Punjab, Ramandeep Singh, could provide the much-needed balance to the five-time IPL champions.
Still early days in his domestic career, Ramandeep has already proved his abilities. In his T20 career so far, Ramandeep boasts a strike rate of 135+ and a bowling economy of 6.90 runs per over. He has played some crucial knocks for Punjab this season, which includes 23-ball 54 runs against Odisha in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
He had a fantastic outing in the 2019-20 season in Under 23s Col.C.K.Nayudu trophy. The talented all-rounder scored three centuries to amass 565 runs in seven matches. He is also a cousin brother of another Mumbai Indians player Anmolpreet Singh, who has not been able to impress with the bat so far. Ramandeep could be a vital addition to Mumbai’s playing XI as they try to get back on the winning track.
