IPL 2018: 5 players who must be dropped from their respective teams
After three weeks of action, all the teams have played at least 6 matches, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad are placed on the top of the table and are going strong. Both the teams are just a few wins away from booking their place in the playoffs.
Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils are placed at the bottom of the table after losing 5 of the 6 matches that they have played so far. After 6 rounds of matches, most of the teams are yet to find their right team combination and time is running out of their hands.
Here are a few players who have performed miserably so far and must be dropped from their respective team's playing XI:
#5 Ravindra Jadeja
Ravindra Jadeja was one of the three players retained by Chennai Super Kings in this season. The team retaining him ahead of Dwayne Bravo and R Ashwin is a mystery that remains unsolved.
Jadeja has played in all the 6 matches for his team this season and he has failed both in the batting and the bowling departments. In the 6 matches, he has scored 47 runs at an average of 15.66 and a strike rate of 120.51. Also, he has been able to take just one wicket and has bowled at an economy of 8.40.
With enough of the opportunities given, Jadeja must be dropped from the Chennai Super Kings playing XI. The team is lacking a batsman in the middle order and should experiment playing Delhi batsman, Dhruv Sorey in the middle order.
