Every Indian Premier League season produces new stars and brings old stars into frame with some good performances. This time it was the big reputed stars who failed badly and became burden to their team. We bring you a team which has players from this IPL season who failed badly.
Here is the Get Lost XI of IPL 7th season:
When we talk about Murali Vijay we always get to his IPL performances. That is how IPL made impact over him. This year he moved to Delhi from Chennai and he started in his new team with a disastrous season. Except a 50 and a 40 odd runs on a slow track which earned him Man of the match he almost played like to get dropped from the squad. He scored just 207 in 11 games he played at a poor strike rate and average of 107 and 18.81 respectively.
Chris Gayle brand mark was produced in IPL only. In 4th, 5th and 6th seasons even though he couldn’t take his team to title victory, he played some incredible innings by which he became spot light in IPL. But this year he became a burden to his team. Came into team after 4 games, as he suffered from a back Injury. After recovering injury he played 9 games and failed to score at least a 50 too as his best score been 46 & his 196 runs in those matches came at a poor strike rate of 106 at an average of 21.77.
P Patel (Wicket Keeper):
Parthiv Patel started the season with a decent innings in first two games and an unbeaten fifty in second game which gave him the man of the match award. He scored over 100 runs in the first 3 games and set towards a good season, but he failed in the next games scoring 205 in total of 12 games he played at a strike rate of 110 and average of 20.5 and he will be the keeper of our Get Lost XI.
Kevin Pietersen (Captain):
The expectations from Pietersen were high but his performance was very poor. He missed first 3 games with an injury and later he couldn’t make difference with the bat. Expect some knocks towards the end he failed. Kevin scored 294 runs in 11 games at an average of 29.4 and a strike rate of 126. Obviously he is the captain of this Get Lost XI team as he could manage to make his team win in one game out of 11 matches he captained and none of 9 games in India.
Shane Watson rated as one of the finest all-rounder in the world had an awful season. His main contributions towards the team were two fifties & a hat trick in losing cause and a match changing spell. Expect those he failed badly. Scored just 240 runs in 13 games at an average of 20 and a strike rate of 122. With the ball he didn’t made much difference as he picked 7 wickets in 21 overs he bowled and conceded runs at a rate of 7.85 runs per over.
Binny one of the best player for Rajasthan in last season but he had a horrible season this year. He scored 126 runs in 13 matches at a poor average of 12.3 and a strike rate of 101.65. With the ball he could just manage to pick 3 wickets with an economy rate of 7.11.
Sammy had a poor tournament this time. Played some fine cricket last season for Hyderabd, he couldn’t replicate that this time around. Played 10 matches and a few as captain, scored just 108 at a strike rate of 118 and average of 15. With the ball he went for an economy of 11.21 and failed to pick wickets as he had just 3 wickets in his tally.
Till the start of IPL, Shami was India’s lead bowler with an impressive year but he lost his fame with a poor tournament. He failed to pick wickets in starting and in death and couldn’t restrict runs flow. He managed to pick 7 wickets in 12 games at an economy rate of 8.38.
Mishra was considered as reserve spinner in Indian team but his performances since 2013 IPL made to think once to make him a regular player. But his reputation will be effected with this season as he failed to restrict run flow and to pick wickets. He picked 7 wickets in 10 games he played and conceded 9.06 runs every over.
Reputed as one of the best experienced spinners in the country, Pragyan Ojha was retained by Mumbai Indians instead of some valuable options. As result, MI had to pay a lot for that decision as he went for too many runs and failed to pick wickets in return. Played in 12 games he could pick just 4 wickets and in return he gave 8.26 runs per over.
Any Get Lost XI team will be incomplete without Ashoke Dinda. To everyone’s surprise he had a decent start in 2-3 games but once he caught with his originality he couldn’t stop anyone. He picked up 5 wickets in 9 games he played conceding runs at a rate of 8.7 per over.
