Top 5 mega stars may fail to find a contract in IPL 2021: The 2020 Indian Premier League season ended on a great note with the Mumbai Indians winning their 5th title. This season too has witnessed prolific performances in all aspects of the game. However, there have been some players who have not lived up to expectations and may have a hard time getting caught up in the franchises in the IPL 2021 auction.
Here we take a look at the top five players who may fail to find a team in the 2021 IPL:
Kedar Jadhav: It was a pain to see CSK’s lower-order hitter Jadhav beat in IPL 2020. Given his role, the 35-year-old had to bat at a fast pace from the start, which he failed to do. His seven-out of 12-ball unbeaten run during his 10-run defeat to Calcutta sums up his season.
Overall, Jadhav, who is earning Rs 7.8 crore per season, has scored 62 points in eight games with a terrible strike rate of 93.93. Notably, he didn’t hit a single six in IPL 13.

Glenn Maxwell: The Australian hitter was a disappointment for Kings XI Punjab’s management who invested a huge sum (Rs 10.75 crore) to buy him from Delhi Capitals.
Maxwell was tasked with leading KXIP’s average order. However, in the 13 games played, he scored only 108 points with an average of 22.13. To add to the trouble, he failed to produce effective results even with the ball. In the 126 balls thrown, Maxi chipped only three wickets.
Jaydev Unadkat: The Rajasthan Royals pacer did not live up to expectations. After his stunning performance in 2017 with Rising Pune Supergiants, he was bought by RR for Rs 11.5 cr. However, he struggled to lead the royals bowling attack and is struggling to get out of Jofra Archer’s shadow. In seven games he managed to take only four wickets while losing 228 runs.

Andre Russell: In the world of T20 cricket, few have managed to instill fear in the hearts of opposition bowlers like Andre Russell in recent years. A vital cog in Kolkata’s lineup, Russell has, time and again, turned the tide in favor of his team. Due to its astronomical capabilities, Calcutta shelled out a whopping Rs 8.5 crore to maintain its services ahead of the 2020 IPL auction.
In the latest edition of IPL, Russell hit 510 runs with an incredible strike rate of 204.81. Much has been anticipated by the big man this year, but he has been unusually quiet this season so far. With 117 runs in 10 games, Russell looks like a pale shadow of himself and given his dismal form and concerns about injuries in the 2020 IPL, it’s highly unlikely a franchise will pay a huge sum to acquire his services in the next edition. of rich cash.

Harbhajan Singh: Veteran Harbhajan Singh missed the 2020 IPL for personal reasons and his contract with CSK also expired this season. As Harbhajan hasn’t been a part of Team India for a long time and doesn’t even play national cricket, the 40-year-old has no other platform than IPL to showcase his talent. But since he lost IPL 13, no team will be willing to invest in him in the IPL 2021 auction.
