Varun Chakravarthy IPL 2022 KKR vs RR: While playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), right-arm spinner Varun Chakravarthy has experienced quite contrasting fortunes in the last 2 Indian Premier League (IPL) seasons. After picking up as many as 18 wickets in IPL 2021, he was given a massive opportunity to feature in the Team India playing 11 during 2021 T20 World Cup, however, the mystery spinner failed to live upto the expectations in the mega event. Chakravarthy has not been in the best of forms during the ongoing IPL 2022 season as well.
Varun Chakravarthy has managed to pick up only 4 wickets from as many as 8 matches in Indian Premier League 2022 at an average of 61.75. While considering his dismal form, the Kolkata Knight Riders dropped the spinner from the playing 11 during the last match against Delhi Capitals. There are no injury issues with Chakravarthy and he is very much unlikely to return back into the side for the upcoming few games.
