WPL 2024 came to an end on the 17th of March. RCB women won the trophy for the first time in history. On the other hand, DC women suffered yet another heartbreak as they finished second for the second time in a row. While it was jubilation for RCB, the world was nightmarish for DC. The tournament turned out to be very good.

In the two editions of the WPL so far, a lot of potential have come out. The players have entertained the fans. In the latest edition, there was a good turnout which benefited the games a lot. The players have individually performed well in both the seasons. While the first edition took place in Mumbai, the second edition took place in Bengaluru and Delhi.

In the upcoming editions, the WPL is likely to be played in Gujarat, which has many stadiums, and Uttar Pradesh (Kanpur or Lucknow).  So far in the tournament, there have been many great performers. While some performed well in 2023, others performed in 2024. Only a few managed to perform in both the editions of the league. Here are the five players who did well in the WPL 2023 but failed in 2024.

Coming to the WPL 2024, Hayley Matthews was in terrific form. She was brilliant both as a batter and as a bowler in the series against Australia. In the WPL 2023, she was brilliant. The star performer from the West Indies was great both as a batter and as a bowler in the title-winning campaign for MI women. She was the leading wicket-taker and won the MVP of the tournament award. 

With the bat, Matthews smashed 271 runs in 10 innings at a batting average of 30.11, at a batting strike rate of 126.04, including a fifty. With the ball, she was terrific, as she claimed 16 wickets at a bowling average of 12.62, at a bowling SR of 12.7, at an economy of 5.94. However, 2024 was not good for her. She played nine matches and scored 180 runs at an average of 20. With the ball, she claimed 7 wickets at an average of 30.14.
