Playing cricket at the highest level, especially in a format that is as intense and demanding as T20 cricket is not an easy thing to do. So naturally, there are times when players are not able to do well, and this is pretty normal. But it becomes a point of concern when the lack of form and inability to do well stretches across matches.

The players who are expected to do well and carry their team forward find it difficult to carry themselves through a game of 20-overs cricket while doing well in the department they specialize in. And, 2020 did nothing else but add to their misery and make the life of such players more and more difficult.

Here we will have a look at an XI of such players, who failed to live up to the expectations of their fans and put on some really unimpressive numbers on the stat sheets.

Here’s the flop T20I XI of 2020:

1. Martin Guptill (New Zealand)

One of the best white-ball cricket players to come out of New Zealand, Martin Guptill did not exactly have a great year with the bat in hand. Even though New Zealand did well as a team, the individual performance of Guptill was not something that his team would want to carry forward into the coming year.

He played in 11 matches during the course of the year but was able to manage a total of 185 runs, with his highest score being just 34 runs.

Guptill is no short on experience and he would surely shed the baggage going into 2021 and start afresh, building upon the numbers that he has to his name and those that have brought him up the ranks into being one of the best in the business.
