The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 was brought to a close on February 26 as Australia trumped the hosts South Africa in the summit clash to be crowned T20 world champions for the third time in a row. The T20 extravaganza witnessed many players take the tournament by storm with their jaw-dropping performances.

However, there were also some top-drawer cricketers who failed to rise to the occasion at the grandest stage of them all and were quite dismal with their performances. Let us compile a playing XI of players who failed to live up to their billing at the marquee event.

Here is the Flop XI of the tournament

1. Shafali Verma

Shafali Verma has been a consistent performer in the international arena. Shafali has featured in 56 T20Is and scored 1333 runs at a strike rate of 132.11. When it comes to the 50-over format, the opening batter has scored 531 runs in 21 matches at a strike rate of 83.62.

Shafali is known for her fearless brand of cricket and is entrusted to provide the Women in Blue with brisk starts. However, the 19-year-old did not play the role to perfection at the T20 World Cup 2023 and had a pretty mediocre outing at the tournament.

Shafali featured in five matches and could score just 102 runs at a strike rate of 108.51. Her failure to start the innings on a high put pressure on the middle order and due to the same, India were not able to put up formidable scores on the board.
