The Asia Cup 2023 tournament concluded on Sunday, September 17 with the Indian team steamrolling Sri Lanka in the final to become champions and lift their 8th Asia Cup title. It was total domination from the Men in Blue as Sri Lanka managed only 50 runs and lost the final by 10 wickets.
It was not only Sri Lanka that flopped in the summit clash, but throughout the Asia Cup 2023 tournament, some players were consistently failing to perform for their respective teams, which hampered their sides as well. Keeping this in mind, we have collated 11 of the worst-performing players from this Asia Cup 2023 who didn’t come to the party when needed.
Here is the Flop XI of the Asia Cup 2023 tournament:
1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk)
Afghanistan expected a lot from their talented keeper-batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the Asia Cup 2023. He was coming off a record 151 against Pakistan in an ODI in Hambantota and it was expected he would be in top form when the crucial tournament began.
However, it was the complete opposite for Afghanistan as Rahmanullah Gurbaz failed to score even double figures in both the matches he played. He made 1 run against Bangladesh while Afghanistan was chasing 335 to win. And then against Sri Lanka, he managed just four runs as his side faltered in a chase of 292.
