Well, the first two weeks of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 have been very interesting. Heavyweight teams like India and WI have prematurely exited whereas the non-Asian giants have again ruled the proceedings.
Sides with strong spin artillery (SRI, BAN & AFG) also have severely malfunctioned and even the associates haven’t caused any big upsets. Overall, the ultimate T30 World Cup story has been the domination of the four semi-finalists who have clinically flopped everyone else. Hence in this list, let’s check out-
Flop XI from the Super 12 stages of T20 World Cup 2021
1. Chris Gayle
Unfortunately for Chris Gayle, the year 2021 has been very mediocre. Right from the first half of the IPL till the ongoing T20 World Cup, the Jamaican’s batting has become very topsy turvy in T20s. In the cash-rich league, while representing PBKS, Gayle heavily faulted from his routine average of 40 and only managed to score 193 runs from his 10 games.
Even in the CPL, all that Universal Boss had managed was a total average of 18.33 from his nine appearances for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. Eventually, though his franchise won their maiden CPL title, the southpaw’s best contribution in the entire season was the highest score of 42.
However in the mega event, the 42-year old was expected to fire on full cylinders. But sadly again the outcome has been very poor as only a total of 45 runs have come from the veteran’s blade. By dreadfully averaging in single digits (9), Gayle could only register the best score of 15. Overall, one can assuredly say that his horrendous annual T20 form was one of the chief reasons regarding WI’s early exit.
