Often in life, one would come across situations where things don’t entirely go your way. There might be nothing wrong on the part of an individual. However, success becomes hard to come by despite the best possible efforts. Something similar was on display in the World Cup 2019 as well.

There were several cricketers who weren’t at their complete best. Even though they put in their everything to do well in the tournament, they didn’t reach the mark by their own standards. It is not that they haven’t performed well in the quadrennial event but they were clearly not at their best. Thus, they find themselves a place in the Under-performing XI for the World Cup 2019.

Here is the Under-performing XI of players from the league stage of the World Cup

1. Quinton de Kock | South Africa

South Africa usually relies quite heavily on Quinton de Kock. He is the one who provides the team with some fabulous starts more often than not. De Kock is highly consistent and doesn’t go through a bad patch for a long time. However, the situation for him in the World Cup 2019 was quite different. The left-hander had a few good performances but found runs hard to come by. He clearly didn’t live up to the expectations with the bat and that is a way had an impact on his team’s performance.

His stats in the tournament

Matches: 9
Runs: 305
Average: 38.12
S/R: 86.89
