5. Rovman Powell (INR 2.80 cr)

However, he has failed to live up to the expectations of his team. The 28-year-old all-rounder has amassed only 31 runs in four appearances, with the best score of 20. His dismal show in the middle order has hurt Delhi Capitals, who have failed to capitalise on the good start provided by Prithvi Shaw and David Warner.

4. Nitish Rana (INR 8 cr)

Bought back at the IPL 2022 mega auction by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) earlier this year, the talented left-hander was perhaps overvalued with a price tag of INR 8 crore. This season has definitely not started on the right note, with Nitish Rana failing to cross 30 in any of his five innings, averaging just 13.8 with a strike rate of 135.29.

3. Moeen Ali (INR Rs 8 cr)

Moeen Ali was chosen over the South African veteran Faf du Plessis, who has been an integral part of the CSK in the last couple of seasons. The opener amassed 633 runs and was integral in Chennai lifting their fourth IPL title. Moeen will hope to hit the strides and repay the trust shown by the franchise.

2. Kieron Pollard (INR 6 cr)

Pollard’s outings so far in the 15th edition of the tournament pretty much sum up Mumbai Indians’ run in the competition. They have lost all their five matches in the competition and toil at the bottom of the IPL 2022 points table. The Mumbai management will hope Pollard to fire all cylinders as they look to bounce back in the competition.

1.  Daniel Sams (INR 2.60 cr)

He failed to live up to his name and his hefty price tag. Sams has managed to pick up only one wicket in three appearances at an economy of 12.64 runs per over. With the bat, the Aussie cricketer has only mustered seven runs. He will be looking for a chance to show his metal to the Mumbai Indians and the other teams.
