Top 6 Big Bill Overseas Flops in IPL:

The 13th Edition is just 6 Days Away.
Over the years we saw IPL becoming a global League.
Overseas players Played a massive role in IPL Success.

But Some Big Guys Failed to replicate his Reputation into Performance Despite having Big money.
1. Ben Stokes (RR 2018);
After a Stellar 2017 with RPSG , Stokes bought by RR for a Whopping 12.5 Cr.
But in 13 matches he Scored a mere 196 runs with a Strike rate of 120+.
With the ball just 8 Wickets...
Failed to justify the Pricetag. Seems like he lost his touch.
2. Andrew Flintoff (CSK-2009);
Sold for a Record 9.66 Cr by Csk During that 2nd edition. Flintoff was the big guy in the Cricketing Town in those days.
But Suffered a Knee injury Nd only played 3 matches.
62 runs with the Bat Nd 2 Wickets puts him in the Overseas Flops list
3. Kevin Pieterson (RCB- 2009);
Rcb went all out for KP Nd bought him for a Whopping 9.66 Cr.
He was the Costliest player along with Flintoff in that Season.
But he hardly performed for the man in Red.
Just 93 runs in 6 matches was the proof that he had a Lackluster IPL...
4. Tymal Mills (RCB-2017)
His Career was no less than a Roller Coaster Ride ...
With his Variations he earned so much. Rcb surprisingly gone mad to buy him. Nd Eventually bought him for a Whopping 12 Cr.

5 Wickets in 5 games with an Econ of 9 was very Ordinary numbers.
5. Angelo Matthews ( PWI);
Very Talented player from the Island Nation but failed to perform in the Cash Rich league.

Bought by PWI for a Whopping 6 Cr ,

But hardly turned the PWI into big force.
Could score 299 runs with bat Nd 12 Scalps in 20 matches .
6. D'Arcy Short (RR-2018);
He was a Sensation in BBL , got enormous amount of praise in that Australian T20 League.
RR bought him for a Whopping 4 Cr ,
But he could only managed to score 115 runs in 7 matches.
A major Disaster in the Cash Rich league...

Underrated Xi of IPL..

Indian Premier League- Where Talent meet Opportunity..
It's been 12yrs ... Since 2008 The Cash Rich league witnessed loads of Talented players.
There have been some Outstanding performers , Who without getting much attention have gone about their Business.
1. Shaun Marsh-
The Former opener of Kxip Started that Inaugural edition with a bang ... Nd went on to win the Orange Cap...
He scored 2477 Runs at a AVG of 40 with 20 half Centuries...
Very Unfortunate that he hasn't given many chances in the last few seasons... @shaunmarsh9
2. Robin Uthappa;
He has been a vital Cog for KKR over the last 6 seasons...
He was the leading Run Scorer in that 2014 edition ... In his Career he scored more than 4000 runs with a good Strike rate of 131.
Such a gem but sadly he isn't as much talked in IPL..@robbieuthappa
