Flop XI of the TATA IPL 2024

1. David Warner (Delhi Capitals)

David Warner had a pretty good start when he scored 29, 49, and then 52 in the first three innings of IPL 2024. Since then, though, he has lost form. In addition, he missed some games in the middle of the season due to injury. Besides that 52, he managed only 38 runs in the next five innings for a total of 168 runs in eight innings at an average of 21, not good for a player of his quality and experience.

2. Mayank Agarwal (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

Mayank Agarwal had a very forgetful season for SRH. The aggressive batter was replaced with better players in the lineup as he couldn’t do much with the bat. Star batter Agarwal was retained for a price of INR 8.25 crores. With a batting average of 16.00 and a batting SR of 112.28, Agarwal scored 64 runs in four matches for the Orange Army.

3. Devdutt Padikkal (Lucknow Super Giants)

Devdutt Padikkal found a new team for the IPL 2024 season when Lucknow Super Giants traded him in from Rajasthan Royals. Padikkal still played some games for LSG even with KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock as the opening pair. But he failed miserably. The Southpaw played seven games a total of 38 runs at a horrible average of 5.42 and a best of 13.

4.  Hardik Pandya © (Mumbai Indians)

Hardik Pandya, the newly appointed captain of Mumbai Indians, leads this list of underperformers. Pandya, coming back after an injury, has failed to leave any significant impact with either bat or ball. Scoring just 35 runs in two matches, the captaincy decisions by Pandya have also been under the scanner, adding to the woes for MI.

5. Ajinkya Rahane (Chennai SuperKings)

Ajinkya Rahane had an outstanding 2023 edition for Chennai Super Kings. He couldn’t give his team an aggressive start at the top in the IPL 2024 because of his poor form. Though Rahane got begins in a few games, he couldn’t convert them into big ones. He scored 242 runs in 13 matches with an average of 20.16 and a strike rate of 123.46, with a best of 45.

6. Glenn Maxwell (Royal Challengers Bengaluru)

It is no secret that Glenn Maxwell failed this season. The Australian all-rounder entered the tournament with fine form but couldn’t continue on that touch. Maxwell played nine games and only managed to score 52 runs at an average of 6.50 and a strike rate of 123.80, with a best of 28. His six wickets with the ball, however, helped RCB at the end, but they were eliminated in the eliminator game where Maxwell failed with the bat again.

7. Deepak Hooda (Lucknow Super Giants)

Deepak Hooda was another LSG batter who failed in IPL 2024. He put pressure on the other batters with his bad form. Except for a few games, he primarily played as an “Impact Player” and was unable to make any difference in the IPL 2024. With a best score of 50, Hooda scored 145 runs in 11 matches at an average of 18.12 and a strike rate of 138.09.

8. Jitesh Sharma (WK) (Punjab Kings)

We want to have a keeper who can bat in the lower order, and Jitesh Sharma is the perfect man for this team. However, the PBKS keeper had a horrid season with the bat, scoring 187 runs in 12 innings at an average of 17 and a strike rate of 131.69. His career-high 32 not out came against SRH in PBKS’s final league match as captain. 

9. Alzarri Joseph (Royal Challengers Bengaluru)

Alzarri Joseph was picked up for INR 11.50 crores and was, in fact, the biggest buy of the season for RCB. The West Indian bowler did poorly in whatever he showed and cost RCB some games with his bowling. In three games, the right-arm pacer claimed a solitary wicket at a bowling average of 115.00, a bowling SR of 58.00, and an economy rate of 11.89.

10. Deepak Chahar (Chennai SuperKings)

Deepak Chahar did not play in the second half of the IPL 2024 due to injuries. However, in the first half, he was not that good. Being retained for a price of INR 14 crores, Deepak was ordinary for CSK. His bowling average was 40.40, bowling SR was 28.20, and economy rate was 8.59 in eight innings.

11. Anrich Nortje (Delhi Capitals)

Anrich Nortje will be our other overseas quick in this team. During his time with the Delhi Capitals, the South African speedster had an awful season. Nortje returned from an injury in IPL 2024. He played just six games for DC this season and took only seven wickets. His economy rate was 13.36, among the worst for a specialist bowler this season.
