Here are the eleven best overseas performers in the IPL 2022.

Gujarat Titans won the IPL 2022 tournament | BCCI-IPLThe IPL 2022 came to an explosive end as new franchise Gujarat Titans (GT) won the tournament on their debut defeating Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the final on May 29 in Ahmedabad. Hardik Pandya and his men earned the glory of breaking the monotony of either Mumbai Indians (MI) or Chennai Super Kings (CSK) winning the tournament in the last few years.

Though the IPL is said to be the best platform for young Indian domestic cricketers to show their mettle at the grandest stage in front of huge crowds; there are many foreign players as well who have been consistently very good over the years and some overseas players who were newbies, but made a name for themselves in IPL 2022.
