ICC World Cup 2019: Flop XI from the league stage of the tournament

All these players are extremely talented but for some strange reasons, they couldn't hit form in the World Cup.

Tables have turned upside down in the World Cup 2019, quite literally. Before the tournament began, not many would have expected South Africa to come up with such a dismal performance. The fans also backed Windies to finish much higher on the points table than they actually did. It was anticipated that Afghanistan will give a tough time to some of the big teams.

However, none of this has turned into reality which in a way was disappointing. Talking about disappointment, the performance of some of the players was not up to the mark either. Their teams might have been in a much better position had these cricketers stepped up and brought out better performances. Thus, they are picked in the Flop XI of the league stage of the tournament.

Here is the Flop XI of players from the league stage of the World Cup

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman had a disastrous tournament. He was nowhere near his best except for the fifty that he scored in the game against India. Fakhar bagged two ducks in the tournament and only averaged 23.25. Since he wasn’t able to provide his team with good starts on a consistent basis, the middle order was exposed early which is one of the many reasons why Pakistan couldn’t make it into the semi-final.

His stats from the league stage

Matches: 8
Runs: 186
Average: 23.25
S/R: 81.93
