The league stage of IPL 2022 has ended with the final fixture played between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Punjab bid adieu to the 15th edition with a five-wicket win against SRH in the last league game. This season has brought some heroes on board both with the bat and ball.

Apart from the stellar performances of some players, this season has been like a nightmare for others who were picked by their teams in the mega auction at a good amount. Including some youngsters, there are a couple of big names who couldn’t deliver as per the expectations of the fans and their franchises as well.

In this analytical piece, we’ll have a look at the playing XI which will comprise the Indian cricketers who flopped in this season of IPL 2022 and couldn’t perform up to the mark.

Here’s a look at flop Indian XI from the league stage of IPL 2022

Things are not going well with this Senior Indian batter in either of the formats since the Test series against South Africa earlier this year. Rahane was facing criticism for his poor performance as he is continuously failing to score runs. During the mega auction of IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders added him to the team for the price of 1.0 Cr.

KKR gave him a chance to bat at the opening position but Rahane failed to prove himself up to the expectations of the team. After seven matches, management decided to drop him from the playing XI and this inconsistency at the top of the order ended up as a reason for Kolkata’s poor campaign this year.

Rahane got a chance to bat in all seven innings of the seven matches he played managing to score only 144 runs with a miserable average of 19.00 without having any fifty or century to his name.
