IPL 2022: Captains performance review and winning percentage after league stage

First time captains Hardik Pandya and Faf Du Plessis along with Sanju Samson and KL Rahul led their respective franchises to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 playoffs, while most successful skippers finished in the bottom of the points table.

While Hardik and Rahul guided new entrants Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants to the playoff rounds, Samson's Rajasthan Royals and Du Plessis' Royal Challengers Bangalore also sealed the top four spots.

Rishabh Pant's Delhi Capitals missed out on the fourth spot in the playoffs in the penultimate match of the group stage, handing RCB the final playoff berth following a defeat.

Mayank Agarwal (Punjab Kings), Shreyas Iyer (Kolkata Knight Riders) and Kane Williamson (Sunrisers Hyderabad) had a mixed outing this season, finishing in the sixth, seventh and eighth spots respectively. Shreyas led the side in all 14 matches, but Mayank and Williamson missed a game each during the season.

Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, who are the record champions with five titles to their name, finished last of the 10 teams due to poor Net Run Rate (NRR), level on points with Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led four-time winners Chennai Super Kings, who finished ninth in the points table.

CSK also saw a mid-season captaincy change as first-time skipper Ravindra Jadeja handed back the reigns to veteran MS Dhoni after a poor start to the campaign.

Plus, Bhuvneshwar Kumar stepped in for Williamson in SRH, while Shikhar Dhawan led the side in the absence of Mayank in PBKS and Rashid Khan led GT in the absence of Hardik for one match each.

Here is how the teams finished on the IPL 2022 points table after the league stage finished on May 22:

Mid-way through the season, Dhoni was handed back the captaincy and the seasoned skipper too could lead the team to just two wins in 6 matches.
