After the conclusion of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020), many cricket analysts and pundits are becoming vocal about the performance of players and teams. Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag is not far behind the five players who failed and could not justify his hefty salary.

In a video shared on his Facebook page, Sehwag was the first to pick Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Aaron Finch, as one of the biggest flops of IPL 2020. The veteran pointed out that the Australian captain failed to live up to expectations and this could be due to the Bangalore team’s curse. Finch was able to score just 268 runs in 12 matches, including a half-century.

“Aaron Finch, I gave him my name as a nickname, thinking that he would be Veeru for Thakur Kohli.” Instead, it seems that the Bangalore curse affected him badly and his batting engine stalled this season, ”said Sehwag

The former Indian players were also disappointed with the performance of West Indies power-hitter Andre Russell. Sehwag feels that the batsman could not flex his muscles this time and could not convert any of his innings despite a good start.

“Andre Russell’s muscles have been sluggish this season and we have slept awakening expectations in every innings. Because of this, Kolkata did not make it to the playoffs this season.

Next on the list was Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ‘s Shane Watson, who threw the ball in the middle and announced his retirement from the IPL after a disastrous season. Sehwag said that all fans of the Yellow Army had high expectations from the Australian player, but he was successful in the league.

“Shane Watson, a Chennai fan and we had high expectations from this diesel engine, but this season, even after several kickstarts, it did not start properly and as the season ended, he said that the vehicle should no longer be pulled. And it will be retired. ” . “The 42-year-old said.

Also, the great opener chose Australia Glen Maxwell His pickup of a player who failed to deliver the goods in the IPL 2020. The former KXIP coach and player criticized the all-rounder, saying the latter was enjoying a highly paid holiday in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This year Maxwell was a total failure as he failed to hit a single maximum in the league.

Glen Maxwell. This 10 crore cheerleader proved very costly for Punjab. His IPL routine has been away from work for the last few years, but he broke that record this season. This is what you call a highly paid holiday. “

Last on the list was South Africa’s Dale Steyn, who at one time was known for dominating the pitch of 22 yards with his deadly bowling. Sehwag said that Stan has lost his charm and hence there will be no buyer for himself in the IPL market. He was part of RCB in IPL 2020.

“Dale Steyn. There was a time when everyone was afraid of bullets from ‘Stan Gun’ but this season we got a Homemade Pipe Gun instead of ‘Stan Gun’. I couldn’t believe my eyes were watching him hitting, But one thing has become clear that we are not likely to get any buyer for it in the IPL market now. ”Virender Sehwag concluded.
