5. Harshal Patel

Harshal Patel took 32 wickets in the 2021 Indian T20 League and followed up with 19 in the next season. In his last six matches, for example, he has given runs in excess of 11 runs-an-over on four occasions. In the same matches, he took just three wickets. His overall economy of 9.39 in 2022 doesn’t impart much confidence either.

4. Khushdil Shah

In Asia Cup 2022, the left-handed batter made just 58 runs in six matches at an average of 14.50. Additionally, his striker rate for the year 2022 is just 102.46 which is not what a team wants in a T20I match.

3. Nicholas Pooran

West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran is among the very best batters in modern-day cricket. Recently however the southpaw seems to be going through a lean patch which could be a cause of concern for the West Indies team. In the last nine T20I matches, Pooran has failed to cross 24 and has been dismissed four times on single-digit scores.

2. Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant mercurial rise to the pinnacle of sports had everyone thinking that he will become an integral player of the World Cup team. Pant’s recent form has him sliding in and out of the playing XI on a constant basis. His stats of 338 runs in 21 matches at an average of 26 doesn’t show the entire picture of his bad form.

1. Glenn Maxwell

Maxwell has failed to come up with a double-digit score in 17 of his last 30 matches which shows the kind of slump Maxwell is going through. The hosts would be in grave trouble if the right-hand batter fails to deliver in the 20-20 World Cup as well.
