Rahul Tripathi is a right-handed opening batsman from Ranchi. He burst onto the cricket scene in the 2017 IPL edition, displaying his great skill-set. His talent is that he possesses flair and has the ability to clear the infield with ease during the power play in the first six overs. In the 2022 IPL, he is playing in the Rajasthan Royals franchise. With Rahane and Butler opening the innings, he is sidelined for most games. In the 73 IPL matches that he did open, he scored 1,693 runs with a strike rate of 140.73. He has the distinction of hitting six sixes in an over, not once but twice, in the local cricket arena.

He made seven thirty-plus scores for Pune in eight innings, which included a magnificent 93 of just 52 balls against the KKR franchise.

Umran Malik is a 22-year-old right-arm fast bowler from Srinagar in the Jammu & Kashmir district. In the 2022 IPL, he is playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Umran Malik is a seriously fast young bowler. He has the great advantage of having Dale Steyn as his bowling coach in the Sunrisers Hyderabad. With Steyns’ assistance, he can channel these seriously quick balls into more accuracy and bring in more variations. He is India’s latest fast bowling sensation.
Umran Malik’s stats are excellent for a young bowler entering the IPL arena. In the 2022 IPL, he took five wickets for 25 runs against one of the table-topping teams, Gujarat Titans. The yorkers that he is bowling at that speed is excellent. He also has a great short ball delivery at pace. In 14 IPL matches, he took 17 wickets at an average of 27.1.
