The IPL 2024 witnessed some great performances from the players individually. Some of them won a lot of matched for their side while others tried their best to make a name for themselves. It was an entertaining tournament till some point. After high-scoring games became a norm, the matches got a bit predictable and boring. There were not many fresh faces either.

Some of the players who did well in the last season turned out to be dud. Despite the room to do well, some performers came short and were not at their best. Such players cost a lot of games gor their side which probably affected their chances of winning the season. While the teams continued to back them, the players could not deliver.

Here is the list of players who performed the worst for their side in the IPL 2024:

10. MI – Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya had a mediocre season both as a batter and as a bowler. When he did return to form in the second half of the season, it was probably a bit too late for MI, as they were almost in the brink of elimination. The star All-rounder was poor as a player and as a captain. His failure was one of the main reasons for MI’s poor season.

9. GT – Wriddhiman Saha

Wriddhiman Saha was the biggest disappointment of the season as a batter. After doing well in the last 3-4 seasons, he had the worst season for a GT batter. While Saha was good as a wicketkeeper, he could not give a consistent run as a batter. His poor form was the biggest reason for the failure of the 2022 champions in the season.

8. PBKS – Jitesh Sharma

Jitesh Sharma was the biggest failure for PBKS without a doubt. He was the key contender to be India’s WK batter for the T20 WC 2024. But his form in the IPL 2024 meant that India could not trust him to have in the squad. Lack of aggression was probably the reason for his failure. After doing well for PBKS in 2022 and 2023, he had a poor season as a WK batter.

7. LSG – Quinton De Kock

Quinton De Kock played a couple of good knocks for LSG. But his campaign wasn’t that good overall. The WK batter often perished quickly. When he lasted a bit longer, the Southpaw did not score at a good rate. For a team that did not have a good batting, De Kock did not being a lot of value. Despite getting enough backing, he turned out to be bad.

6. DC – Anrich Nortje

Anrich Nortje was arguably the biggest disappointment of the season. The express pacer was smashed by a lot of batters for fun that cost DC a lot of games in the first half. It eventually became the reason for DC’s inability to qualify for the playoffs. Despite claiming wickets, the South African was expensive and conceded a lot of runs on a consistent basis.

5. CSK – Ajinkya Rahane

Ajinkya Rahane could not replicate what he did for CSK in 2023. The right-handed batter had a brilliant SR in 2023. But in 2024, he was a bit slower than he should have been despite the nature of the wickets in Chennai. Despite getting a promotion up the order, Rahane could not bat well and cost some matches for CSK.

4. RCB – Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell did well with the ball. But he had a poor season as a batter for RCB. His best score in the entire season was not even 20. His knock against CSK was the only instance which had any impact on the game. Otherwise, the Australian perished early more often than not. RCB had a void in the middle order due to the same reason.

3. RR – Dhruv Jurel

After having a good debut season for RR in 2023, Dhruv Jurel failed to live up to the expectations in 2024. Coming into the IPL, he had a brilliant form doing well in the Test series against England. Unfortunately, the form could not translate into good performances for RR. He had only one fifty to his name and failed to perform in many matches. 

2. SRH – Aiden Markram

Aiden Markram had a poor season for SRH. The right-handed batter batted decently in the first few games. But later in the tournament, he fell off the radar and could not live up to the expectations. The fact that SRH had an insane barring lineup and he could not be at his best meant that they could not have a reliable number 3.

1. KKR – Rinku Singh

KKR had a near perfect team. Unfortunately, their best player from the last season, Rinku Singh, was not at his best. He was in no way a BSD player. However, given how other players from KKR performed, his bad form in the second half became a talking point. Due to a lack of chances, he did not get a lot of opportunities.
