The IPL 2022 mega auction has produced impressive lineups for all clubs.

High-profile teams like MI and CSK have earned 2 titles each in the last four years of the IPL.

Without a doubt, the new Lucknow Super Giants franchise has astonished everyone with their excellent additions. The franchise has created a strong team with the help of its skilled support staff. Unlike the other teams, they have a carefully well-stacked lower-middle order. Lucknow, like CSK, has a total of eight all-rounders.

The opening combo of KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock appears to be a good fit in terms of batting. Even Manish Pandey, who is ranked third, appears to be a sturdy block. Aside from them, players like Stoinis, Hooda, and Krunal Pandya can adapt to the scenario. The tall Jason Holder, who comes in at number 7, is the icing on the cake. Overall, this batting lineup has a good chance of chasing any IPL target.

Nevertheless, beyond their star players, there isn't much depth in the bowling department. Avesh Khan does not have a reliable backup, especially when it comes to the Indian speed assault. Holder, Ravi Bishnoi, Mark Wood, and Avesh Khan will all be crucial gears in the machine. Overall, assuming LSG's front-line players are fully available, IPL 2022 can be their first major championship.

The defending champions CSK, on the other hand, appear to be repeating their success from the previous season in IPL 2022. The team's administration has worked hard to find players who fit their playing blueprint exactly. The yellow army, like IPL 2021, has a lot of depth and resources. They have a total of eight all-rounders on their roster.

Starting with their batting order, Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad return to their old opening partnership. Even floaters like Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu, who play below them, are built for the middle of the field. Jadeja and Shivam Dube, for example, provide added strength in the lower middle order.

Deepak Chahar and DJ Bravo, bowling all-rounders, stretch their batting even beneath them. In general, the reigning champions have put up a powerful batting order, similar to the previous season.

However, when it comes to bowling, the team has done its homework. Deepak Chahar and DJ Bravo are anticipated to lead the charge at the start and bowl in the death overs. Mitchell Santner and Mahesh Theekshana's mystery spin are also accessible in the spin department. Adam Milne adds more pace to their international spearheads, while Chris Jordan is an intriguing alternative for Bravo.

Overall, CSK is very well supplied, both in the matters of team balance and resources. However, Deepak Chahar's recent injury could put them in jeopardy, especially in terms of local pacer backup. The reigning champions, on the other hand, have a comparable pedigree to capture their fifth championship.
