Krunal Pandya, a left-arm spin all-rounder playing for Lucknow Super Giants, is setting a new skimming record while bowling in IPL 2022. On Friday, Krunal Pandya took 2 wickets for 11 runs in 4 overs against Punjab Kings. During this he also bowled 1 over maiden. He was also declared man of the match for his skillful bowling in low scoring matches.
Worst spell of IPL 2022: Due to his tight bowling, Kunal is the second lowest run-scorer in the current IPL season after Axar Patel. Akshar spent 10 runs in 4 overs in the match against Punjab and registered the most boring spell of IPL 2022.
Kunal Pandya missed out on equaling Akshar’s record against Punjab Kings. He spent 11 runs in the quota of 4 overs. Harshal Patel did the same against Kolkata Knight Riders. In this way, in the 15th season of IPL, both of them have reached number two in terms of skimpy bowling.
Most runs less than 20 runs in 4 overs: Krunal Pandya has managed to score less than 20 runs for the third time in the current season after completing the quota of four overs thrice in the match. Like Krunal, Caribbean mystery spinner Sunil Narine, who has played for KKR only thrice this season, has done the same thrice. Third on the list is RCB pacer Harshal Patel, who has conceded less than 20 runs in a match after meeting his four-over bowling quota.
Such is the performance in IPL 2022: Kunal Pandya has taken 9 wickets in 9 matches played so far in the 15th season of IPL with an average of 18.56 and economy of 6.19. His best performance has been 3 wickets for 19 wickets. Krunal’s strike rate has also been 18. Stopping runs in the middle overs proved to be important for the team.
