IPL 2022, the 15th season, is running in full flow as ten strong teams compete to lift the title. All 10 teams have good squads, and most of them are available for selection, including Australian players after April 6th. The beauty of the IPL is the mix of domestic, Indian international, and foreign players, making it exciting to watch for both fans and betting enthusiasts. The 4 overseas international players and current Indian international players in each team can make a big difference between winning and losing. Also, most fast bowling all-rounders in IPL 2022 are foreign players and significantly fewer Indian players. Hence, it’s very tricky for the management to pick the best 11 every match that can help them lift the championship. Therefore, let’s look at 8 international players who can be relied upon to perform consistently and help their team qualify for at least the play-offs. This list may help you choose international players during online betting on cricket.
Top 8 International Players to rely on in IPL 2022
Jos Buttler (RR)
The England white-ball cricket superstar Jos Buttler has set IPL 2022 ablaze as he smashed a century and a half-century in back-to-back matches. He is holding the Orange Cap currently with 205 runs in 3 games at a strike rate of 143. He looks like the most consistent player in IPL 2022 and the top pick when we place bets on top online betting sites that offer markets on IPL.
Umesh Yadav (KKR)
The surprise package of this IPL 2022 is none other than Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav. He has already taken 9 wickets from 4 matches with a best of 4/23. He is consistently taking wickets in the powerplay and should feature in your fantasy teams during online betting on cricket. He is currently holding the Purple Cap and might prove to be the game-changer for KKR.
Pat Cummins (KKR)
Pat Cummins stunned MI by playing the most brutal innings till now in IPL 2022. He scored 56 from just 15 balls with six 6’s and four 4’s, winning the match with 4 overs left. Cummins also took 2 wickets in the same game earning him the Man of the Match award. He is one of the top international players to watch out for the rest of the season and can help KKR lift the title.
Dinesh Karthik (RCB)
Currently, the best finisher in IPL 2022 is none other than wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik of RCB. He smashed 44 runs in 23 balls against RR and helped RCB cross the finishing line. He has remained not out in all the matches and has managed to hit the ball cleanly from the first ball he has faced. Although he was a surprise pick for RCB, he has made an impact and is playing the finisher role ABD played in the previous seasons. Currently, he is the trump card of RCB and can win you big points while placing wagers on online betting sites in cricket.
Andre Russel (KKR)
The power hitter of KKR, Andre Russel, has already played one match-winning game in IPL 2022 and looks good for many more. He scored a 31 ball 70 against PBKS and decimated the bowling attack. Russel also bowls the death overs and can pick up wickets at crucial times. Although he has been injured a lot of times in the previous seasons, he looks alright this year and may play all the matches. Hence, he must be among the top 5 fantasy picks during online betting on cricket.
Liam Livingstone (PBKS)
Liam Livingstone is the future star of England and currently plays as an all-rounder for PBKS. He has already played one impactful inning against CSK, scoring 60 runs, and also picked up 2/25 in the same match. He looks more than a handful with the ball as he can bowl both leg-spin and off-spin effectively against both right-handers and left-handers.
Faf Du Plessis (RCB)
The current RCB captain and the opening batsman has been very consistent over many seasons and has started with a bang with an 81 ball 88 against PBKS, although RCB lost the match. He looks in good form and is a good captain, making him a great addition to the RCB franchise looking for their first title win in the 15th season. If Faf fires consistently, then RCB might realize their dream of winning their maiden IPL title.
KL Rahul (LSG)
Mr. Consistent KL Rahul is currently leading the new franchise Lucknow SuperGiants and has already scored a half-century, taking his tally to 28 fifties in 97 matches. Rahul’s batting and captaincy are crucial for LSG to make it to the playoffs. If you are picking a team for betting on the best batsman of the match, KL Rahul must be the first pick.
As it is still the early stages of IPL 2022, the above 8 players have shown great intent and are proven matchwinners for their respective teams. A few more international stars will come to the party and showcase their talent as it’s a big tournament. So, get ready and start your online betting on cricket on a positive note.
