IPL has served as a platform for cricketers to express themselves. The proven local talents from India have been roped in by franchises and the ones who perform well might get a good opportunity to represent the Indian cricket team just like T Natarajan whose performance in IPL 2020 season helped him don the Indian jersey.
However, not all players have excelled in the 14th edition of the IPL. After the coronavirus breached the Indian bubble, IPL 2021 has been postponed indefinitely. So far, we have analyzed flop XI based on their performance this season.
