In a Big Final match between India and Sri Lanka, India lost to SL as Sri Lanka won the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. We shall look at the players during the final who made a huge impact over the game with their poor performances for their teams.

Flops of India-Sri Lanka Final match:

5. Kusal Perera:

One of the Young players who were looking towards becoming a matured cricketer is back on his way. He has been called as Sanath Jayasuryia for his aggressive batting. But he improved to play long innings too. But since the 2nd game of the tournament he failed mostly. Even in the Finals he was one of the failures as he failed to start the innings well where Dilshan was struggling.

4. Ajinkya Rahane:

Young Indian batsman Rahane failed to impress in the final. He played a crucial knock in Semi-Finals but failed to make his mark in the big finals. He was given two games before this in this World T20.

3. MS Dhoni:

Known as one of the good captain and greatest hitters of the ball in the short format of the game MS Dhoni had made a big mistake. He istead f coming or sending Raina, he sent Yuvraj Singh to the crease where his batting slowed the rate. At that stage he couldn’t do much after Yuvi exit as he was under pressure.

2. Amit Mishra:

Winning two MOTM’s in first two games and Good performances in next two were good part for Mishra. But he failed in semi-finals against South Africa conceding 36 runs in 3 overs. He continued that poor show in the Final to. He started well bowling tightly in his first two over along a wicket but later failed as he conceded runs in crucial time. He gave 32 in his four overs.

1. Yuvraj Singh:

Yuvraj Singh has been facing the blame for his slow innings of 11 in 21 balls in a stage which could take India another 30 runs. He is one of the best players in this T20 format had a poor tournament except his good innings against Australia. He failed in the crucial semi-final game also, as he couldn’t make big felling for 19 runs at an important position of the match.
