5 prolific batsmen who have struggled against a particular team
Some of the finest batsmen in world cricket today have struggled to score against certain opponent teams.
It is quite impossible for a batsman to come out trumps in every innings against all opposition teams. They are bound to have days of struggle against every team, however, a few of them tend to have a torrid time against specific teams.Recently, New Zealand batsman Martin Guptills troubles against Australia have come to the fore in the ongoing Trans-Tasman series as he averages a mere 16.94 against them. Guptill may still be a struggler at the Test level, but even some of more prolific batsmen in world cricket have had their own nightmares against particular teams.Here are 5 popular modern-day batsmen who have not done too well against a specific opposition:
#5 Faf du Plessis vs Pakistan - 23.33
Faf du Plessis is among the most reliable names in the current South African batting unit. He has played 29 Tests so far and averages 41.02 for his 1682 runs with 4 centuries against his name.
However, the talented Proteas batsman tends to hit a roadblock whenever he is facing the Pakistani team. du Plessis has scored 140 runs in 5 Tests against Pakistan and his average stands at a shabby 23.33 against them.
With a long way left to go in his career, Faf du Plessis has quite a lot of time to put things back on track.
