The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is up and running, as fans have been treated to some spectacular action over the past week. Not only have scores of over 200 runs been chased down twice, but we have also witnessed a few low scoring battles. Although the tournament is dominated by Indians, the talent and quality which the overseas players bring to the table just adds another dimension to the league.

Several big overseas names have flourished in the opening week of IPL 2022. However, some are yet to get off the blocks after putting up average outings in the first week of the two-month long tournament. In this article, we will have a look at the Flop Overseas XI from the first week of the 15th edition of IPL.

It is absolutely shocking to see the ever-consistent Kane Williamson make the top of the list for the flop overseas XI. However, the Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper departed for just 2 runs off 7 balls against Rajasthan Royals in Match 5 of IPL 2022.

The Kiwi batter looked unsettled out in the middle, and it wasn’t long until he was rattled by some brilliant bowling from Indian speedster, Prasidh Krishna. Chasing a steep target of 211 runs against a new-look Rajasthan Royals side, Kane Williamson and Co. could afford no hiccups at the start.

Their innings got off to a worst possible start when they lost their skipper in just the second over. Kane Williamson, winner of Orange Cap in the 2018 edition, is a calm personality and there is absolutely no doubt that he will come all guns blazing in the second week.
