The CPL 2022 will see many international players participating in the competition. The tournament promises to be hugely exciting and is much anticipated by the West Indies cricket fans. 

Here are 5 bowlers to look forward to in the Carribbean Premier League 2022:

1. Sunil Narine:

Last 5 bowling performances:

2/21 vs Birmingham Phoenix
1/24 vs Trent Rockets
0/19 vs Southern Brave
3/11 vs Northern Superchargers
3/21 vs Welsh Fire

Sunil Narine is one of the most economical and effective bowlers in the T20 format. His recent performances in the Hundred 2022 speak lengths about his ability with the ball in hand. He has picked up 9 wickets in the last 5 matches he played. It is a clear indicator of the fine form he is in. His last match in the Hundred was against Birmingham Phoenix, where he performed brilliantly with the ball and picked up 2 wickets in a losing cause.

Sunil Narine has experience of playing all around the world and has bowled to most of the batters participating in the Caribbean Premier League. He not only provides breakthroughs at important junctures but also keeps the batters quiet for long phases. It is no less than a lethal weapon a bowler can possess in T20 cricket.

Sunil Narine has played 424 T20 matches so far and picked up 461 wickets at an average of 21.06 and an economy of 6.02. Not many bowlers in the world have maintained such economy rate after playing that many games.

Sunil Narine is an important asset for Trinbago Knight Riders going into the Caribbean Premier League 2022, given his recent form and overall ability to trick the batsmen.

2. Obed McCoy (Barbados Royals):

Last 5 bowling performances:

0/31 vs GAW
3/40 vs New Zealand
1/39 vs New Zealand
0/27 vs India
2/66 vs India
0/34 vs India

Obed McCoy is a regular in the West Indies T20I setup. He has produced great performances in the recent times. Although he went for plenty in his last outing against Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Sixty60 tournament, Obed McCoy is a pure match winner. He has great variety in his bowling arsenal. He can bowl slower Yorkers with precision along with off cutters that can trouble the batters.

Obed McCoy has played 57 T20 matches so far and has picked up 86 wickets at an average of 19.48 and an economy of 8.56. His best bowling figures in T20 cricket are 6 for 17.

He is a specialist death bowler and keeps the batters quiet when they wish to go all guns blazing. He will play an important role for Barbados Royals in this season's Caribbean Premier League.

3. Sandeep Lamichhane (Jamaica Tallawahs):

Last 5 bowling performances:

3/26 vs Kenya
2/33 vs Kenya
1/41 vs Scotland
4/29 vs Namibia
2/35 vs Scotland

Sandeep Lamichhane is one of the most promising young players in World T20 cricket. He is currently the captain of the Nepal side in T20 format. He has a brilliant googly in his arsenal that bamboozles the best of the batsmen around the world.

Sandeep Lamichhane is currently playing for his national team against Kenya. He has produced phenomenal performances with the ball in the last 2 T20I's against Kenya. Sandeep Lamichhane will join Jamaica Tallawahs after finishing with his national commitment to Nepal cricket team.

Sandeep Lamichhane also features in the Big Bash League and has produced brilliant performances in the tournament. He plays all around the world and possesses a great experience of playing in diverse conditions.

Sandeep Lamichhane has played 131 T20 matches and picked up 181 wickets at an average of 18.18 and an economy of 6.85. These stats sum up his skills as a bowler. He is definitely one of the bowlers to look forward to in the Caribbean Premier League 2022.

4. Imran Tahir (Guyana Amazon Warriors)

Last 5 bowling performances:

0/34 vs Oval Invincibles
1/24 vs Northern Superchargers
1/26 vs Trent Rockets
0/11 vs Welsh Fire
0/19 vs Southern Brave

Imran Tahir needs no introduction to the cricket fraternity. He is an experienced campaigner who loves his cricket and participates in T20 leagues around the world despite taking retirement from International cricket.

Imran Tahir has played 361 T20 matches and has picked up 453 wickets at an average of 19.71 and an economy rate of 6.94.

Imran Tahir has already found his mojo back while playing in The Hundred. He has picked up just 2 wickets in the last 5 matches he has played, but he has surely kept the batters quiet for long spells in the tournament. His fitness is spot on and he looks like the old Imran Tahir taking wickets and celebrating like there is no tomorrow. It is a brilliant sight to see and hopefully we will see a lot of such celebrations from him in the Carribbean Premier League. He is surely one of the bowlers to look forward to in the Carribbean Premier League 2022.

5. Akeal Hosein (Trinbago Knight Riders)

Last 5 bowling performances:

1/20 vs Barbados Royals
0/60 vs New Zealand
2/28 vs New Zealand
1/28 vs India
1/28 vs India

Akeal Hosein is an integral part of the West Indies T20I cricket setup. He has been performing superbly against strong cricketing nations at the international level. Akeal Hosein has a great ability to keep the batters quiet in T20 cricket.

Hosein has played 79 T20 matches so far and has picked up 59 wickets at an average of 25.49 and an impressive economy of 6.44. His best bowling figures are 4/30.

Hosein has picked up 5 wickets in the last 5 cricket matches he has played. In his previous outing against Barbados Royals in Sixty60 tournament, he came out with a brilliant performance with the ball, giving away just 20 runs and picking up 1 wicket.

Hosein will be leading the spin attack for Trinbago Knight Riders along with Sunil Narine. He is a hard bowler to go all guns blazing against and he is certainly one of the bowlers to look forward to in the Caribbean Premier League 2022.
