India is a country of festival and fairs, and three weeks ago the biggest fair of India, IPL flagged off from Chepauk. The Indian Premier League is the only carnival which is devoid of the usual carousels and Ferris wheel, but still, the audience gets attracted to it. Here the talents exhibit their skills in front of people from all around the world. Even though it continues for a long time IPL is a popular fair which is enjoyed unanimously by all the communities.
Like every year IPL 2019 also was welcomed by the fans with open arms. With each passing day the league is getting more interesting, with the teams eyeing for the playoffs spot. All the 8 teams have been playing good cricket but some of them have been really unfortunate to be lying at the bottom of the points table. Most of the time the franchises have been smart with their picks but they have also missed some tricks by not using some of their wisely.
Here are the 8 players who have been wasteful by the franchises in this season
1) Mohit Sharma, CSK
The Haryana pacer, Mohit Sharma was picked up by the CSK franchise in 2013 IPL auction due to his Ranji trophy heroics in the 2012-13 season. The Dhoni-led team immediately used Mohit’s good patch and they reaped rewards, as he took 20 wickets in 15 games. Mohit became an integral part of CSK in a couple of seasons, but he parted ways in 2016 due to the ban of CSK franchise. He was picked by the Punjab team in 2016 IPL auction and for three seasons he led the bowling department there. After a couple of mediocre performances in the seasons, Mohit was released by the franchise in 2019 but was picked by CSK in the auction and it is a homecoming for the pacer.
Chennai has been consistent again by winning 6 of their 7 games as most of the players have stood up at right times. Though CSK is at top of the table the franchise is in need of death over specialist in absence of Dwayne Bravo, and that’s where Mohit Sharma can add value to this team. CSK has played Mohit Sharma in just one game where he was rusty and conceded 27 runs in 3 overs. With his experience of playing 85 games in the league, the franchise should back him for the remaining games. In the past, Mohit had bowled up front and at the death, and he is successful in his trade which is evident from his 91 wickets tally with an economy of 8.41.
