Sachin Tendulkar has unveiled his best XI from the recently concluded 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The Gujarat Titans won the title in their first season in the league, with Hardik Pandya leading the team to victory in his first season as captain. Tendulkar said he chose the XI purely based on the players' performances that season.
The Gujarat Titans won the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in their first season under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. It was a commendable effort considering not many gave them a chance after the mega auction. This IPL season, a number of different players have shown exceptional performances, while star players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and many others have not done much.
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has posted his best XI of the 2022 IPL. He has appointed Hardik as his team's skipper for obvious reasons. Jos Buttler, who won the Orange Cap by a whopping 863 runs, will open with Shikhar Dhawan in Sachin XI. Dhawan also did decently that season opening the innings for Punjab Kings but was not considered for the South Africa T20Is.
Sachin Tendulkar then went with the middle order which included the likes of KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, David Miller and Liam Livingstone. All four players had a fantastic IPL season. While Rahul amassed more than 600 runs at the top for Lucknow Super Giants, Hardik's all-around ability was hailed by many. He scored nearly 500 runs and also picked up 8 wickets that season.
Butler has earned the Orange Cap with 863 runs this season, while Shikhar has 460 runs in 14 games. Third place went to Sachin KL Rahul, who had 616 runs in 15 innings with two centuries. Hardik Pandya was kept fourth by Tendulkar for playing good innings on that number. David Miller was selected as number five and has proven to be a strong match finisher.

Tendulkar has also kept hit couple Liam Livingstone and Dinesh Karthik on his team. Karthik will also be the wicketkeeper. Sachin said of him: “[Livingston] has the ability to hit sixes. He's a dangerous player. He's very clear-headed and supports himself. It's a good position sixth. His bowling will also come in handy, I would ask him to bowl more off spin.
Former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar then chose Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal as his main bowlers. Regarding Rashid, Sachin said he was a dangerous hitter and the bowler was great. At the same time, Sachin praised Bumrah's Death Bowling while saying of Chahal: “He's the highest wicket-taker. He always beats the batsman.”
Sachin Tendulkar’s IPL 2022 Best XI: Jos Buttler, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya (captain), David Miller, Liam Livingstone, Dinesh Karthik, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
