IPL 2021: Indian and overseas players who have had quiet tournament so far
With several amazing performances in IPL this year, yet there have been some players who are flying under the radar.
At almost halfway mark with 29 matches played till now, let’s take look at Indian as well as overseas players who have had a quiet tournament so far.
Delhi Capitals :
The South African pacer hasn’t performed according to his reputation in this edition. Last year Rabada was the purple cap holder with 30 wickets. This season he has picked only eight wickets in seven innings. He produced a match winning performance in the match against RBC with 3/36, but he his having quiet season this year, relatively.
The Australian hasn’t been able to make a mark yet as of now. With 71 runs in eight innings and just two wickets in the same number of innings, he would like to contribute more with both bat and bowl. With Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw in form, Stoinis didn’t have much opportunity.
Mumbai Indians :
Hardik Pandya is a vital cog for MI over the years. With 52 runs in seven innings, he along with MI’s middle order would like to be among the runs. With other batsmen finding some form of late, Hardik would like to send a few across boundary lines.
Ishan too had a quiet season so far. 73 runs in five innings, this version of Ishan Kishan looks different from that of last year. Amassing 516 in 2020, he lit up the tournament and got an India call based on that performance. With T20 World Cup round the corner, a good season would be the best comeback.
Royal Challengers Bangalore :
The Australian all-rounder didn’t have an impact he would have liked to, this season. In the limited opportunities he had so far, low scores with the bat, no wickets to his tally and a dropped catch, one have to say he was unlucky to find not himself in playing XI against Punjab on 30th April.
Yuzvendra Chahal is one player who all of us want to be amongst wickets, outplaying batsmen cleverly as he does most of the time. But this season, he has not really created an impact he is known to have on the game. Four wickets in seven matches, he certainly would like to improve those stats.
