Another player who did well in IPL 2022 but failed in this edition was none other than Royal Challengers Bangalore keeper-batter Dinesh Karthik. He was amongst the best batters in the league last year and his performances in the league last year saw him making a comeback in the Indian team as well. But this year he failed horribly and was consistently out for low scores. In the 13 innings, he just scored 140 runs at a poor average of 11.67.
