The IPL has always been kind to some players and has not gone the way they would have liked for some overseas batsman despite being in prolific form for their national team. The franchises have always spent a lot of money on the in-form overseas players who will have a big impact on the IPL.
However, some big names from international cricket have failed in the IPL and the prize money has been a major issue increasing the pressure on the players to perform. Here are five overseas batsmen who shine for their national team but fail in IPL.
5 Overseas Players Who Shine For Their National Team But Fail In IPL:
Aaron Finch has been a much disappointing player in the IPL as his international numbers are so good. He has been destructive at the top of the order for Australia alongside David Warner and, surprisingly, he hasn’t been anywhere near to his best in the IPL.
The 34-year-old has represented as many as eight IPL teams including Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, Pune Warriors, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Lions, Punjab Kings, and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. His IPL numbers haven’t been convincing to his talent with 2005 runs in 87 matches at an average of 25.7.
