Rishabh Pant: Delhi Capitals wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was seen struggling with his fitness and bat throughout the tournament. He also stayed away from big hits. He seemed to have become suspicious of his aggressive style or had become overly cautious. He was able to score only 343 runs in 14 matches. This includes only a half-century.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni: His fans who had seen Dhoni playing on the field after retiring from international cricket had high expectations from him, but Chennai Super Kings captain Dhoni was able to score only 200 runs at an average of 25 in the entire tournament. He did not score a single half-century. This was the first time in IPL history that CSK could not make it to the playoffs. (CSK / Twitter)

Dinesh Karthik: For veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, this season was a confusion. The first thing they took a lot of time to settle down. Later he left the captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders in the middle. After this, the captaincy of KKR was handed over to Ian Morgan. Karthik was able to score only 169 runs in 14 matches. This was the third-worst season for them. (KKR / Twitter)

Glenn Maxwell: Australian all-rounder Maxwell was bought again by Kings XI Punjab. He hoped that the presence of Maxwell would boost the morale of the team. Maxwell scored a century against England before the IPL, but in the IPL he proved to be a complete failure. He could only hit a six. He scored 108 runs in 14 matches. He was able to hit only 9 fours.

Andre Russell: Due to his dangerous hitting, Caribbean batsman Andre Russell is considered to be the explosive batsman of the world, not only of KKR. But the all-rounder was troubled by hamstring and knee injuries. He could score only 117 runs in 10 matches. He averaged 13. He did not make any half-century. Russell was a big disappointment for KKR. (KKR / Twitter)
