Flop XI from sixth week


As the coveted Indian Premier League 2023 enters its business end, there’s hardly anything that one could have asked for which has not been delivered yet. From big scores being chased down with ease to teams defending paltry totals, we have seen it all. Players are unleashing their true potential to win matches for their respective teams and some of them have been absolutely phenomenal.

With the points table race remaining wide open, the rush and excitement have brought the top-tier stuff out of many players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Suryakumar Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal this week. However, it hasn’t been the same for some of the other established cricketers. 

With IPL 2023 being in its sixth week with only a few matches to go before it reaches the playoffs stage, we consider creating a Playing XI out of players who couldn’t deliver well in the sixth week.

Mumbai Indians took on Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the sixth week of IPL and both matches, as expected, were high-time adrenaline for the IPL fans. Although MI went down against CSK at Chepauk, the five-time champion side was at their absolute best against RCB and chased down a target of 200 with 21 balls to spare. 

Although MI didn’t start the tournament on a great note and were finding it tough to get it rolling in the middle stages as well, the side has surely found the correct mix of players and mindset, and are well and truly on the path to giving a tough fight to other teams in the playoffs race. However, Rohit Sharma has not been able to cash in on the starts he has received and has struggled to make runs which he would have loved to see against his name.

The MI captain has had a tough season so far in the Indian Premier League and has been finding it hard to churn out runs in his usual effortless style. Rohit, known for his attacking opening batting and effortless pull shots has not been able to create a huge impact for MI with his batting skills, and returned with scores of a duck and seven runs against CSK and DC, respectively, in the sixth week.
