The ICC T20 World Cup (WC) 2021 has finally come to an end. It was an entertaining tournament, to say the least. Australia won the final after beating New Zealand by eight wickets in Dubai. The seventh edition of the T20 WC well and truly lived up to its expectations.

We saw several contests between the bat and ball, which turned out to be closer than expected. Several players were at their best. Many individuals who had a lot of hopes lived up to their hype.

However, the same can’t be said about all. There were a few top-class players who underperformed in this edition of the T20 WC. The below-mentioned players couldn’t quite live up to the expectations.

In the article, we shall be taking a look at team-wise one player who disappointed the most

1) Australia: Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc is unarguably one of the best players of this era. You wouldn’t find too many bowlers as good as him. As a matter of fact, several cricket pundits term him as the best white-ball bowler in the world.

Despite all the accolades, the pacer was far from his best in this tournament. He struggled for form. It is safe to say that he was one of Australia’s weakest links.

The seamer picked just the 9 wickets in the 7 games. His bowling average was 27.55. Moreover, his economy rate was on the higher side as well (9.18).

As a matter of fact, he leaked runs in the final as well. Kane Williamson took him to the cleaners in the most crucial game of the WC. He went for as many as 60 runs in his 4 overs.
