The IPL 2022 the tournament’s excitement level will skyrocket in IPL 2022, as two new teams, Ahmedabad and Lucknow, will join the fray. These two franchises must prepare the core team, for which they must first choose a captain.
These businesses have new teams.
The Lucknow franchise was purchased by RP-SG Group for Rs 7090 crore, and the Ahmedabad team was purchased by CVC Capital for Rs 5166 crore.
CVC Capital is a global investment firm that placed the second highest bid for new IPL teams. The Ahmedabad franchise will play home games at the reconstructed Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad.
These players have the potential to become Ahmedabad’s captain.
After the news of his split from the Mumbai Indians, Hardik Pandya might join the Ahmedabad club. Hardik is from Vadodara in Gujarat, therefore the Ahmedabad franchise hopes to expand its fan base while also strengthening the squad by integrating him. It will come as no surprise if Hardik is named the team’s captain. Hardik has 1476 runs at an average of 27.33 with a strike rate of 153.91 in 92 IPL matches. Hardik has scored four half-centuries throughout this time. He received a 91 on his greatest personal score. He got 42 wickets at an average of 31.26 and an economy rate of 9.06 throughout his bowling career.
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s David Warner
David Warner’s departure has been set in stone, and the Kangaroo batsmen have already stated that they will be included in the auction pool. In such a case, the Ahmedabad team may consider delegating captaincy to him. Warner has scored 5449 runs in the IPL so far, at an average of 41.59 and a strike rate of around 140, with four centuries and 50 half-centuries. Warner had to bear the brunt of the blame because the SRH team performed poorly in the IPL 2021. He was first stripped of the captaincy and then kept out of the starting XI on a regular basis. The Australian star is now looking for a new beginning.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are unlikely to retain experienced wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik for the IPL 2022, given that he is approaching the later stages of his thirties and they have other stronger retention candidates. Karthik also didn’t have the best IPL 2021 season, scoring only 223 runs in 15 innings at a strike rate of 131.17.However, if Karthik is prepared to take on the captaincy again, he is a solid choice for the Ahmedabad franchise to consider, given his experience with KKR and his ability as a middle-order batsman who can also wear the gloves.
Karthik has an outstanding IPL record as an end-over specialist, with 1,040 runs at a strike rate of 177.77. When Karthik is on form and fire, his batting and glovework provide a terrific balance to the team.
