- IPL 2022 is reaching the climax of its league phase
- The standard of cricket has been quite high
- We list 5 of the top fifty makers in IPL 2022
The round-robin stage of the IPL is almost drawing to a close. With places in the Eliminators up for grabs, every game has the feel of a knockout tie. While newcomers Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants, along with inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals stealing a march on the others, the fight for the fourth and final spot is heating up. The cricket itself has been of high quality, as is expected of a tournament attracting the very best talents from across the globe.
In this listicle, we run through five batters who've plundered the most fifties in IPL 2022:
1. David Warner
Having swapped the orange of Sunrisers Hyderabad for the blue and red of Delhi, the stocky Australian has been instrumental in the capital side's Top 4 push. He also leads the 50s chart, with five half-centuries in all. With a highest of 92 against his old employers, he has scored 427 crucial runs for the title aspirants.
2. Hardik Pandya
Gujarat Titans' captain has not merely led the side admirably but has contributed heavily with the bat. Blazing 413 runs in 13 matches, the Gujarati has four fifties in what has been a fulfilling IPL campaign so far.
3. Deepak Hooda
Going by the moniker of 'Hurricane', the Gujarat based player is known for his whirlwind innings. Turning out for newcomers Lucknow Super Giants, the 27-year-old has been in devastating form in IPL 2022, amassing 406 runs. In addition to numerous handy cameos, the batsman has cracked four fifties over the season.
4. Shubman Gill
Ace opener Shubman Gill has been instrumental in Gujarat Titans' impressive debut season. Plundering 403 runs at an average of 31.75, the classy batsman has scored four fifties. With a personal best of 84, the Punjab-born youngster will be hoping for more match-winning contributions in the business end of the IPL.
5. Liam Livingstone
While countryman Jos Buttler leads the run-scoring charts, the supremely talented Englishman has left his stamp on IPL 2022. Known for his ability to hit towering sixes, he has been a bright spark in an otherwise disappointing campaign for Punjab Kings. Notching up four fifties, the hard-hitting batsman has 388 runs to his credit.
