Clever Stats – Mohsin and Patidar make this an IPL to remember for uncapped players
But forget about conventional statistics for a moment. Smart Stats takes into account the context of the match for every ball thrown, and it’s here that Mohsin’s contribution shines even more.
In fact, in only two of nine games did his impact points fall below 35. That incredible consistency, coupled with those highs, gave him an average rating of 58.4 impact points per game, the highest high for all players in the tournament.
Buttler was exceptional in the first seven games of the tournament and he found his form in the playoffs. Over those 10 games, his average impact score was 84.1. He had five innings in which his impact batting score exceeded 100; all other batters combined have had only 25 such instances in the entire tournament.
However, what let Buttler down was his sudden dip in form in the second half of the league stage. In seven innings, he scored just 138 runs; in three of those innings he had negative Impact Scores, and his average Impact Score in those seven games was just 16.4. This meant his overall average for the tournament was 56.2, still very impressive but just a bit below Mohsin’s.
The 2022 season was the first time an uncapped player exceeded impact ratings in an IPL season. Mohsin’s rating of 58.4 is also the highest rating for an uncapped player in a season. In fact, there are only four instances of an uncapped player exceeding a 50 rating in an IPL season (with a minimum of eight games played), including two in 2022.
Marsh’s run that season was built around rock-solid consistency. He made five fifty and a hundred in 11 innings, and that was reflected in his impact scores: seven out of 40 scores, but only one topped 100. The international debut was inevitable, and it happened shortly after, in June 2008.
