The 2024 season of the Indian Premier League kicked off on March 22, and in the blink of an eye, it has reached its playoff stage. The 17th edition of the tournament gave several entertaining moments to fans. Not only this, but the edition also became a hit for some players, while others were a total miss. A few names couldn’t live up to fans’ and management’s hopes and performed way below expectations. 

Flop XI of IPL 2024

In this article, we will go through eleven names who looked very promising at the beginning of the season but failed to make a mark.

Openers: Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra

Veteran CSK batter Ajinkya Rahane had a brilliant campaign in the 2023 season of the tournament with 326 runs in 14 matches he played for the side. The 36-year-old was expected to continue his dominance with the bat in 2024 as well; however, Rahane failed to live up to those expectations. He could only come up with 209 runs in 12 games with the highest score of 45 runs at a strike rate of 120.11.

New Zealand all-rounder Rachin Ravindra was picked by the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings at the mini auction. Ravindra had a brilliant run at the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 and was expected to come up with the same kind of performance in the cash-rich league. However, the 25-year-old couldn’t deliver decent performances and scored only 161 runs in nine games, and failed to pick any wicket as well.
