IPL 2018 has got off to a fantastic start and has gained lot of attention of cricket fans all around the world. We have witnessed two hearth thumping finishes in the tournament already.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Kulwant Khejroliya,Mayank Markande, Billy Stanlake, and Rinku Singh made their IPL debut this season. Some had a fantastic debut, while others just had bad day.
Mumbai Indians leg-spinner Markande was superb against Chennai Super Kings while Rahman was outstanding for the Kings XI Punjab. On the other hand, quite a few big names flopped on their debut game this season.
Let’s take a look at the players who failed in their debut in IPL 2018.
Rajasthan Royals D’Arcy Short bought by for a whopping Rs. 4 crores in the IPL 2018 auction. With an amazing strke rate of 149 and 572 runs in 11 games at an average of 57.20 the opening batsman of Hobart Hurricanes was the highest run-getter in the Big Bash League 2017/18.
He also made his appearance against Australia in the recently concluded T20 series against New Zealand and England.There was lot of hype around this player where Rajastan Royals will able to sign him up as Delhi Dare Devils were also quite keen on him. How ever this debut match turned out to be a very bad start for him against Sunrisers who got runout by Kane Williams. We would like to see him doing lot better in upcoming matches for sure.
