There’s an old adage, form is temporary, but class is permanent. Even as class has its own place of importance, it’s form that gives teams victories. Hence, it’s essential to be in remain in rhythm and contribute for the players to be indispensable members of their respective teams.
Over the years, a number of match-winners have emerged and it didn’t take time for them to hog the headlines. However, even they have experienced rusty phases in their career. As they moved ahead in their journey, the cricket pitch presented them with loads of questions.
And they have shown signs of giving up the ghost. But the rusty run doesn’t mean that they won’t ever storm back to their best. For that to happen, polishing of skills and removing chinks from their armour will be of vitality.
In the article, let’s take a look at five players, who are losing form with the progression of their career: –
1. Mustafizur Rahman
When Mustafizur Rahman burst on to the scene in 2015, he was deemed to have a bright prospect. Albeit he has been absolutely unplayable at times, he has leaked runs alarmingly of late. He was Bangladesh’s leading wicket-taker in the World Cup, but has seen a dip in form ever since.
Owing to injuries and poor form, the speedster has never been able to cement his spot in the Test team. Even in T20Is, opposition batters have started to get under his skin. In his career, Fizz, as he is popularly known, hasn’t learned the art of shaping the ball back into the right-hander.
Rahman was a key bowler for Rangpur Rangers in the BPL, but lost his form again in the series against Pakistan. The seamer needs to add more variations in his repertoire in order to taste more success for the Tigers.
