The Caribbean Premier League is set to begin on the 1st September 2022, with St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots facing off against each other in the first match.

The CPl 2022 will see many international players participating in the competition. The tournament promises to be a top standard and all the teams will bring in their A game to get hold of the trophy.


Here are 5 batsmen to look forward to in CPL  2022:


1. Andre Russell (Trinbago Knight Riders):


Last 5 T20 innings:

72 vs St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots
14 vs Guyana Amazon Warriors
12 vs Barbados Royals
17 vs Northern Superchargers
64 vs Southern Brave


Andre Russell is one of the fiercest strikers of the cricket ball. He has an experience of playing in T20 leagues around the world and when he is on song, he is simply unstoppable. His current form isn't superb but you cannot simply write off his ability to win games for his Franchises from tough positions.

In the ongoing 6IXTY Men's Competition, Russell played a brilliant knock of 72 runs in the previous match against Guyana Amazon Warriors. He scored his runs in just 24 balls, hitting 5 fours and 8 sixes. Based on his current form, he definitely is a key player for Trinbago Knight Riders in the upcoming Carribbean Premier League.

Andre Russell has scored 7057 runs in T20 cricket at an average of 26.73 and an impressive strike rate of 169.47. Russell has hit 566 sixes so far in the T20 format. When he gets going, Russell only deals in sixes, making it very tough for his opposition.


2. Rovman Powell (Jamaican Tallawahs):

Last 5 T20 innings:

34 runs vs St. Lucia Kings
11 runs vs Barbados Royals
32 runs vs St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots
27 runs vs New Zealand
21 runs vs New Zealand


Rovman Powell has emerged to be one of the most sought after player in T20 cricket. His hitting prowess is next to none. Powell has reinvented his game in the last year or two and is reaping rewards as a result. He can hit the ball a long way and put the opposition under pressure from ball one.

In the 6IXTY Men's Competition, Rovman Powell has come out with some good performances scoring 77 runs in 3 matches at an impressive strike rate.

Rovman Powell has immense experience of playing in T20 leagues around the world and his recent stint with Delhi Capitals in the IPL only boosts his confidence in the T20 format.

Powell has scored 2323 runs in T20 cricket so far at an average of 23.94 and an impressive strike rate of 135.92. The strike rate doesn't really deduce out his destructive ability with the bat. He is definitely one of the batsmen to look forward to in the CPL 2022.



3. Sherfane Rutherford (St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots):

Last 5 T20 innings:


50 vs Trinbago Knight Riders
24 vs St. Lucia Kings
0 vs Jamaica Tallawahs
5 vs Rajasthan Royals
28 vs KKR

Sherfane Rutherford is one of the cleanest strikers of the cricket ball. He plays in various leagues around the world and has extensive experience under his belt. Rutherford has previously given brilliant performances in the Pakistan Super League. On his day, Rutherford can be totally ruthless towards the bowlers and can tear any bowling attack apart.

Rutherford has scored 1408 runs in T20 cricket so far at an average of 23.46 and a phenomenal strike rate of 130.49.


Sherfane Rutherford has been in a brilliant form currently. He has accumulated 74 runs in 3 matches played in the 6IXTY Men's Competition. The interesting thing to note here is that Rutherford has scored his runs at a powerful strike rate of 352.38. It is the highest strike rate for any batter who has scored more than 50 runs in the tournament.


Sherfane Rutherford is definitely a batter to look out for in the CPL 2022.


4. Evin Lewis (St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots)


Last 5 T20 innings:

7 vs Trinbago Knight Riders
22 vs St. Lucia Kings
15 vs Jamaica Tallawahs
2 vs RCB
DNB


Evin Lewis has been missing in action for some time but his hard hitting ability cannot be undermined. It would need one good innings for him to get back to where he paused.

He has scored 44 runs so far in the 6IXTY Men's Competition and has shown glimpses of his ability to hit the ball a long way. If he gets going in the tournament, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be a tough opposition to contain.

Overall, Evin Lewis has scored 5591 runs in T20 cricket at an average of 31.23 and a strike rate of 145.10. He has hit 385 sixes during his entire T20 career. Once Gayle famously said about Evin Lewis that he can stop hitting sixes, but Evin Lewis would go after every ball and every bowler and won't stop. He is equally good against the spinners as well as the quicks.

Evin Lewis has performed very well in the previous editions of the CPL and is an important member of the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots team. 


5. Paul Stirling (Guyana Amazon Warriors):


Last 5 T20 innings:


0 vs Trent Rockets
74 vs Welsh Fire
16 vs Afghanistan
20 vs Afghanistan
0 vs Afghanistan


Paul Stirling is a powerful striker of the cricket ball. He opens the batting and can destroy the pace attack of the opposition in the powerplay overs. He usually sets up a great platform for the middle order to go all guns blazing.

Paul Stirling has scored a total of 7554 runs in T20 cricket with an average of 26.13 and a strike rate of 142.55. He has hit 309 sixes in his T20 career.

Paul Stirling has played in T20 leagues in Ireland and England and has always performed well for his franchises. Once set, Paul Stirling can be hard to stop for the opposition teams. He is definitely one of the batsmen to look forward to in the CPL  2022.
