In the 8th match of IPL 2014 played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils, CSK beat DD quite comfortably with team performance. We shall look at the players during this match who made a huge impact over the game with their poor performances for their teams.

Flops of CSK-DD match:

5. JP Duminy (Delhi Daredevils):

In a pulse question during the match Duminy was rated as an all-rounder. But the match’s performance was not up to the mark. He bowled well with the ball conceding just 26 in the four over he bowled. But just scored 15 runs in 14 balls he faced and was dismissed in the position where his team need him a lot.

4. Mohammad Shami (Delhi Daredevils):

Just before T20 World Cup 2014, he was the best Indian pacer and was the future. But the World T20 brought out his mistakes and so the IPL. Failing to execute the proper line in a stage where you can’t bowl length balls. In the game he conceded 45 runs in just his fours overs quota.

3. Brendon McCullum (Chennai Super Kings):

After his performance in the first game against KXIP, a lot was expected from Baz. But he collapsed all hopes as he failed scoring just 9. He found Parnell of Unadkat of the same over earlier ball he was put down by Duminy but he couldn’t manage it.

2. Ross Taylor (Delhi Daredevils):

DD will be eagerly hoping for KP’s return given that Ross Taylor hasn’t been doing anything. In the first game he scored some runs at a good pace. But in the second game he failed complete and so in the 3rd game. He just scored 6 runs against CSK.

1. Nathan Counter Nile (Delhi Daredevils):

Behind the big loss of DD, there was NCN (Nathan Nile-Counter). He got injured in the first over of the game and went back to the hut and never returned to the field. His four crucial overs were made to covered by the part timers and inexperienced bowlers. Late he didn’t even bat and if he could have batted he could have reduced the winning margin at least by hitting some big shots.
