Players who failed to perform in HBL PSL 2021
Kings added New Zealand’s Martin Guptill to the squad thinking the batting line will gloom up ahead of the season. But, the Kings fans have eyewitnessed exactly the opposite of their assumptions. Guptill could add only 69 runs contributing in 6 matches as he was added in the latter stages of the tournament.
The New Zealander strikes at 102.54 with an average of 11.50 – one of the lowest averaging batter of the PSL 6. Out of 69, he tallied 43 runs that remain his best but it means, he participated with 26 runs in the rest of the five innings.
Many publishers write Mohammad Amir in their flop playing XI of the PSL 6. Amir, who is optimistic of getting consistent opportunities in the Pakistan national team, could pick 5 wickets playing 11 matches.
What is worst? His 4 out of 5 total wickets in the HBL PSL 6 were dug out in the Karachi leg. The pacer was almost wicketless in Abu Dhabi as the second phase continued, but eventually, yielded out Shoaib Malik in the KK vs PZ, Eliminator 1.
Shadab’s team may have won 8 out 10 league stage games but the captain himself did not showcase any special performance. He has been trying hard to turn himself into a bowling all-rounder but all his efforts have gone into vain as he has failed to execute in both departs losing his originality, leg-spin.
Although he grasped 9 wickets in 11 games but his economy was not much expensive rating around 8. If we discuss his batting execution in the mid-order, featuring in 9 innings, Shadab compiled 94 runs averaging nearly 10.
Faf Du Plessis:
Faf Du Plessis of Quetta Gladiators could represent his franchise in 4 innings being the team’s part in five games. He failed to render what was expected from him and maintained an average of 19.00 combining 76 runs with his HS of 37.
Mohammad Nawaz of Gladiators failed to dig out his specialty for the first time in the PSL campaign or else, he has always been a star for his team. The all-rounder could score 109 runs in 9 games picking 6 wickets that makes him one of the underperforming players of the HBL PSL 2021.
