Prithvi Shah (Delhi Capitals)
Prithvi Shah entered IPL 2023 amid high expectations as the Mumbai batsmen scored a lot of runs in the domestic season. However, stiff competition for opening spots in the Indian team meant Shah was expected to prove his case in the IPL. The right-handed batsman scored just 106 runs in 8 innings in another season.
Delhi Capitals, who have longed for a better start throughout the season, finished ninth in the league stages after losing their first five matches of the season. Shah finally got some runs with the bat after scoring 54 against Punjab Kings in Dharamsala last week.
Mayank Agarwal (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
The franchise bought Mayank Agarwal for Rs 8.25 crore in the IPL auction earlier this year. However, the batsman had only one good innings to show for the ’83 season, which came late in SRH’s final match of the season as they lost against Mumbai Indians.
The batsman, who scored just 270 runs from 10 matches in the season, struggled to get off to a good start and was dismissed in the 11th over. Mayank scored another 40-odd innings, however, his strike rate remained questionable as the batsman was not in his usual flow.
Deepak Hooda (Lucknow Super Giants)
After making it to the national team last year, Deepak Hooda was the biggest disappointment of the season. The Lucknow Supergiants star turned out to be a liability for his franchise as he scored just 69 runs from 11 games at an average of 6.9.
Hooda was given ample opportunities by the LSG management despite his poor performance in the season, but the batsman could not revive his season despite moving to a regular number in the batting order. 3.
Ambati Rayudu (Chennai Super Kings)
At the tail end of his career, the 37-year-old Ambati Rayudu was the weakest link in the in-form Chennai Super Kings batting order and would have lost his place in the playing XI had it not been for MS Dhoni’s support. Used as an impact substitute, the middle-order batsman scored 122 runs at an average of 15.25 during the season.
Ryan Parag (Rajasthan Royals)
Rian Parag was expected to be the star’s presence as Rajasthan Royals decided to play their first home matches in Guwahati, the young batsman’s hometown. Instead the 21-year-old batter was a no-show in the season, scoring just 78 runs in seven matches at an average of 13.
Dinesh Karthik (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Dinesh Karthik was expected to be a key member of Royal Challengers Bangalore after Rajat Patidar’s injury weakened the midfield during the season. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored just 140 runs in 13 matches at an average of 11.67 this season, while RCB failed to make the playoffs.
Sam Curran (Punjab Kings)
Sam Curran, who fetched a record-breaking Rs 18.5 crore in the IPL auction, was expected to be the match-winner that Punjab Kings have often lacked in the past. The reigning T20 World Cup champion, Man of the Match in the series and Man of the Match in the final, could not do justice to his hefty price tag.
Expected to be a key death-over bowler, Curran’s yorker rarely hit the right spot while his power often proved too costly at an economy of 10.22. The left-hander took just 10 wickets in 14 games. He scored 276 runs with a half century and got few runs with the bat.
Washington Sundar (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
For someone who plays for the Indian team and earns a place in the national team due to IPL qualifications, Washington Sundar was disappointing before an injury cut short his season midway through the season. The right-arm off-spinner scored just 60 runs at an average of 15 runs from seven games.
Kuldeep Yadav (Delhi Capitals)
Kuldeep Yadav, who ended last season with 21 wickets, was again expected to perform well with the ball for Delhi Capitals. The pitch at Delhi’s Aruj Jaitley Stadium was expected to favor the slower bowlers, but the Chinaman has taken just 10 wickets this season.
Jofra Archer (Mumbai Indians)
Jofra Archer was expected to be the strike bowler for Mumbai Indians in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. The English express pacer struggled with injuries and was never at his best as he took just two wickets before being dropped from the line-up after five matches. Archer conceded runs at an economy rate of 9 plus in the season.
Umran Malik (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Umran Malik’s story was no different from Archer’s with the fastest Indian pacer conceding runs at 10.85. His precious overs bowled just 20 overs in the IPL before taking five wickets before losing his place in the playing XI.
Umesh Yadav (Kolkata Knight Riders)
35-year-old Umesh Yadav’s performance in IPL 2023 proved that his best days are behind him as the veteran Indian pacer, who took just one wicket in eight matches for Kolkata Knight Riders, eventually lost his place to youngsters Harshit Rana and Vaibhav Arora. In the squad.
Bad Game 11: Prithvi Shah, Mayank Agarwal, Deepak Hooda, Ambati Rayudu, Ryan Parag, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Sam Curran, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jofra Archer, Umran Malik, Umesh Yadav
