IPL 2022 LIVE: Maheesh Theekshana Is One of the Best Buys in IPL, Says Wasim Jaffer
IPL 2022 LIVE: Sri Lanka’s right-arm off-break bowler Maheesh Theekshana has impressed cricketer turned analyst Wasim Jaffer. Wasim Jaffer feels he is the best buy in the IPL and has been a steal for the Chennai Super Kings. For more top IPL betting sites and match updates for the 2022 season, read here.
The four-time champion Chennai Super Kings have had a terrible season this year. They could only win 4 matches out of 11 and are now out of contention for this year’s title. In a season where nothing has gone right for CSK, Theekshana has emerged as a big positive. Theekshana has picked up 12 wickets in 8 matches, out of which 6 have come in the powerplays and 4 in the death overs.
Jaffer seemed impressed with his wicket-taking ability in the crunch moments and heaped praise on him.
“I think Theekshana has been outstanding and has probably been one of the best buys in the IPL. He’s been the steal for CSK and has taken five wickets in the powerplay and also has four wickets in the death. Their bowling unit was looking weak, and Moeen Ali couldn’t finish his figures, and after the inclusion of Theekshana, the team has looked strong on the bowling front”
CSK had a dismal season in the IPL this year. The biggest failure has been their bowling. In the absence of Deepak Chahar and out of form Chris Jordon and Adam Milne, CSK’s bowling looked out of the screws. Thus, Maheesh Theekshana’s contributions are praiseworthy. Ace all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has played the anchor role in Chennai’s bowling department. He is their wicket-taker with 16 wickets in 9 matches.

Mukesh Chaudhary has been impressive. He has bowled in crucial situations but has been fruitful with 13 wickets in 10 matches. Maheesh Theekshana is their third-leading wicket-taker behind Mukesh Chaudhary. The stand-out point of Maheesh’s bowling is his economy. He has managed to be quite economical with 7.40 runs per over. Maheesh was the joint-highest wicket-taker in the 2021 Sri Lanka Premier League. He was bought by CSK for INR 70 lakh, 20 lakh over his base price.
IPL 2022 LIVE: “Devon Conway is free-flowing batsman” – Mohd Azharuddin
Former Indian captain Mohd Azharuddin was all praise for New Zealand opener Devon Conway. Stylish Azhar seemed mesmerized by Devon Conway’s strokeplay as he called him a free-flowing batsman. He said it was a delight to watch him play and commended his opening partnership with Rituraj Gaikwad. Azhar was not impressed with CSK’s team management for not picking Devon Conway for most of the games. Read more Mobile Bet365 reviews here and learn more about how online betting works.
“Conway is a free-flowing and outstanding player and if his partnerships with Gaikwad remain the same, he will certainly get the confidence for his upcoming assignments. With the presence of such quality players, you [CSK] are not able to qualify for the playoffs, then the team combinations have been completely wrong,”
