APL 2018 – Flop XI of the tournament

Many cricketers who hogged quite a lot of limelight before the start of the tournament, were pretty underwhelming on the field.

An experienced T20 player who has done pretty well in tournaments like Caribbean Premier League, Johnson Charles was expected to provide a lot of fireworks at the top for the Leopards. But the Windies opener was pretty much below par with his performances, which reflected on his team’s show as well.

In eight matches for the Leopards, he could muster only 131 runs which are very low for a player who batted in the top three spots on all occasions. He averaged under 17 at a strike-rate of 124 and given he had fired on regular basis, the Leopards could’ve had a much better season.
