IPL 2018: Stars in 2017, failures this season
IPL has proved to be a breeding ground for lots of budding cricketers around the world.
Players have become overnight stars on the virtue of their performances in the IPL. However, IPL is known for its uncertainties.
With quick rewards come sudden failures too. Players who get the limelight in one season sometimes struggle to live up to the high expectations of the fans and their own franchise and thus fade away from people's memories.
The same has happened this season as well. Some players who were in top form last year are completely out of sorts this year.
We will look at four such performers from IPL 2017 who failed to deliver in IPL 2018.
#4 Manoj Tiwary
Manoj Tiwary is a seasoned domestic campaigner and has years of experience of playing in Indian conditions.
Considering this fact, IPL teams have picked Tiwary in their sides. Tiwary showed his class last year when he played some crucial knocks for Rising Pune Supergiant.
The Bengal batsman scored 324 runs at a steady average of 32.40 and a high strike-rate of 137.28.
However, he has been disappointing this season. Playing for Kings XI Punjab, Tiwary has scored only 12 runs in the four matches that he has played and has been in and out of the side. Tiwary was expected to put up a better show.
