With 2019 nearing its end, we had witnessed much international cricket this year. This year around 300 T20I games were played out of all the 500 international games. Global cricket’s most brief organization even ruptured the 1000-game imprint this year.
Many players had a splendid season this year whereas there are other players also who had a terrible season this year. A portion of the huge names didn’t have the best of times either. T20 isn’t a simple organization to play and a few players found that out the most difficult way possible.
Along these lines, with 2019 reaching a conclusion, we take a gander at a lemon XI that didn’t proceed according to desire this year:
(Note: Only Test-playing countries considered)
1. Shikhar Dhawan
The T20I batsman of India had the splendid year of 2018. He was regularly censured for his methodology and irregularity. In any case, he shut his faultfinders as he scored 689 runs (40.53 average and strike-rate of 147.22) in the year which was the most by any player (in those days) in a schedule year.
Nonetheless, 2019 has seen him return to his conflicting self in T20I cricket. It’s been a major battle for him and 2018 and 2019 have been differentiating times for the Delhi left-hander. Dhawan scored 272 runs with 22.67 average. His strike-rate is likewise a stressing factor which is 110.57 this year.
On the off chance that you see his scores, you’d state that Dhawan is getting begins as he’s had only three single-figure scores from 12 innings. However, he has battled. In addition, it has influenced India’s beat of the innings too.
2. Fakhar Zaman
Fakhar Zaman and Shikhar Dhawan both were in the same boat from the last couple of years. Zaman with 576 runs and a strike-rate of about 150 had the excellent year of 2018. Be that as it may, 2019 has been the direct inverse and truth be told, it’s been far more awful than what Dhawan has had.
In 2019, Zaman has played eight games and within just two matches, Zaman was able to score double figures. The player has scored just 50 runs in eight innings. He has a strike-pace of 104.17 and an average of 6.25.
Along these lines, there’s nobody better to make this lemon XI than Zaman in 2019. He has the second-most noticeably awful average score in 2019 for any player who has batted in the best seven and has played at any rate five innings. Just Bangladesh’s Afif Hossain has a more awful normal (6.20).
3. Colin Munro
No one can replace Colin Munros’s hard-hitting ball style. The New Zealand batsman is loaded with control and is a savage striker of the ball. He perpetually gives New Zealand quick starts at the highest point of the request. Be that as it may, 2019 hasn’t been the year for him.
In the wake of averaging more than 33 and striking more than 150 in every one of the most recent three years, 2019 was an under-standard year for Munro. In 12 games, he scored 269 runs and found the middle value of simply 22.42. He had an only one-half century to his name which was scored by him against the match with men in blue at the beginning of this year.
4. Kusal Mendis
Kusal Mendis has been one of the batting backbones for Sri Lanka in the course of the most recent couple of years. He’s done well crosswise over arrangements and is an indispensable machine gear-piece in the group. Be that as it may, he has battled crosswise over organizations in 2019. Be it Tests, ODIs or T20Is, Mendis has had a frustrating year.
Notwithstanding, he’s fared the most exceedingly terrible in the briefest arrangement. He midpoints simply 17.50 while amassing 140 runs from eight innings this year in T20Is. Out of those 140 runs, 79 came in one innings against New Zealand and separated from that there’s been no other huge commitment from the 24-year-old Sri Lankan.
5. Gary Wilson (wk)
Most wicket-managers had a not too bad 2019. Any semblance of Rishabh Pant, Tim Siefert and Nicholas Pooran were conflicting however indicated what they’re able to do. They are the ones to look out for in the coming years. In any case, there was one wicket-attendant batsman who had a loathsome year and that is Gary Wilson.
Ireland played a considerable amount of T20 cricket this year and Wilson was the wicket-attendant for the greater part of the games. He played 16 games and batted on 10 events. In any case, he could marshal only 143 runs and had a strike-pace of 95.97.
The 33-year-old just couldn’t get moving and was liable for draining force out of the innings on most events. Along these lines, Wilson is the wicket-manager in this lemon XI of 2019.
6. Krunal Pandya
It’s just been a year since Krunal Pandya made his universal introduction yet it’s been an upside downtime for him. He’s to a great extent been a blast or bust player. There are blasts where he abandons picking wickets yet all of a sudden, he’ll rise in one game and turn the game with the ball.
In any case, the second 50% of 2019 was certifiably not an incredible one for him. In the wake of getting three wickets in two games against West Indies in Florida, Pandya hasn’t got a solitary wicket in the following five games. Also, he’s away for runs too. He hasn’t got a ton of chances to bat either.
Consequently, he’s been cut out from the group too. By and large, in 2019, the turn all-rounder from Baroda could pick only eight wickets from 12 games. The left-hander has an economy of 8.10 too. With the bat, he scored 52 runs at a normal of 17.33 and a strike-pace of 108.33.
7. Jason Holder (c)
Jason Holder made his arrival to T20I cricket after right around two years. Be that as it may, he had fundamentally the same as a year to what Krunal Pandya had. He was to a great extent incapable of the ball and wasn’t extraordinary with the bat in whatever odds he got.
Like Pandya, Holder began the year really well and was fair until the Afghanistan arrangement. He had gotten five wickets and had an economy of 6.61. Yet, the India arrangement turned it around which places him in this XI. He went for in abundance against India.
By and large, completed the year with a minor six wickets and an economy of 8.40 from nine games. With the bat, he scored only 62 runs from six innings and made some average memories. Along these lines, he will lead this failure XI of the year 2019.
8. Shadab Khan
Shadab Khan is considered as one of the match-champs in the Pakistan white-ball arrangement. He can pick wickets in the center overs and tonk a couple at the demise and is a live wire in the field. Be that as it may, this year was effectively his most noticeably terrible in universal T20 cricket.
The leg-turning all-rounder played nine games yet got only four wickets. He hasn’t had control either as he’s gone at 8.73 runs an over. With the bat, he played six innings and was unbeaten in three of those. All in all, he made only 36 runs at a normal of 12.00.
9. Scott Kuggeleijn
Scott Kuggeleijn first burst on to the global scene over two years back. He played two or three ODIs against Ireland and was disposed of notwithstanding progressing nicely. Be that as it may, he restored for the current year and made his T20I debut and has been reliably highlighting in New Zealand playing XI.
Be that as it may, he has conveyed and has complimented to mislead. In nine games, Kuggeleijn has taken just five wickets and has an economy of 9.68. Just once in these nine games has he yielded runs at an economy of under 7. Along these lines, he hasn’t had control of any kind nor has he gotten wickets.
He may have had a not too bad contact with the bat let down the request. Nonetheless, that isn’t his essential suit and he expected to pick more wickets and be significantly progressively reliable with the ball.
10. Ish Sodhi
Here is another Kiwi in this lemon XI and Ish Sodhi’s name may come as an amazement. Be that as it may, the leg-spinner hasn’t had the best of times in the most limited arrangement in 2019. There’s no uncertainty he is a wicket-taking bowler but on the other hand, he’s away for in abundance this year.
Sodhi has played 11 T20I games in 2019 and has figured out how to get only 10 wickets. Also, he has an economy of 10.04. He was dismantled by a large portion of the restrictions he confronted. In addition, seven out of his 10 wickets this year came in three games. Along these lines, Sodhi battled big time this year.
11. Mustafizur Rahman
After a primary couple of years in global cricket, Mustafizur Rahman’s structure plunged in 2017. Be that as it may, he appeared to have discovered his magic in 2018 as he got 21 wickets in 13 T20Is. He struck once every 13 balls a year ago.
In any case, 2019 has been the direct inverse of what 2018 was for Mustafizur. He’s played seven games and has taken only four wickets. The left-arm quick bowler has looked shy of certainty and hasn’t bowled anyplace close to his best. Now and again, it’s appeared as though he has essentially made an insincere effort and looked lost.
He has an economy of 8.80 this year. In addition, Mustafizur is the pioneer of the Bangladesh pace assault and it hasn’t looked good for them either. Thus, he finishes this T20I flop XI of the year 2019.
