IPL stars fail to perform in Zimbabwe

What has come as a shock for the Indian audience is that the most hyped up players in the team have not played upto the mark.

It is not unknown how Abhishek Sharma skillfully navigated through the powerplays in IPL 2024 with Australia great Travis Head by his side. However, Sharma’s magic did not work on the Zimbabwe field.

Similarly, Rajasthan Royals’ Riyan Parag had an impressive IPL season, but he got out on a duck in yesterday’s match. Rinku Sharma, who was glorified throughout the T20 World Cup 2024, where he didn’t even play a match, got a duck out.

Yesterday’s match marked the debut for Abhishek Sharma and Riyan Parag. Both players are hoping to get back in form and show their true worth.
