The league stage matches of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 came to an end on Saturday, after a month of enthralling and uninterrupted cricketing action. There were many spectacular performances which will be spoken about in the years to come. Australia, India, New Zealand and hosts England made it to the semi-finals.
The World Cup provides cricketers with an unparalleled platform, where some good performances can earn anyone the tag of a national hero. However, if anyone crumbles under the immense pressure, he is turned into a villain. Like every other edition, this World Cup too had plenty of talented under-performing cricketers.
Let us have a look at one such player from each team
1. Afghanistan – Rashid Khan
Before the World Cup, everyone would have expected to see Rashid Khan’s name on the top performers’ list. Unfortunately for the Afghan supporters, the 20-year-old leggie had a campaign that he would like to forget soon. In 9 matches, he could only pick up 6 wickets. He was also the most ineffective regular bowler for his team, amongst those who have played full 9 matches.
His economy rate is not something to be proud of either. The man from Nangarhar conceded runs at a rate of nearly 10 runs per over. Khan’s horrendous campaign was one of the main reasons behind Afghanistan’s poor campaign. But he is still very young, and cricket fans would want him to get back to his rhythm soon.
