The New Zealand captain had a nightmare with the turn of events at the tournament as he notched just 10 runs in two vital group-stage matches, which saw his team going out early.

Shivam Dube (India)

Despite high expectations, Dube scored 133 runs in 8 innings and failed to replicate his good IPL form, which contributed little to India’s title run.

The Pakistani scored 44 runs in 3 innings and went wicketless in the matches he bowled, hence having little impact with either bat or ball.

Liam Livingstone (England)

Livingstone scored 72 runs in 4 innings while claiming 3 wickets in 4 matches. He dropped his performance in vital moments and affected England’s overall outlook.

Sam Curran (England)

Curran, who had a dazzling previous T20 World Cup, could manage only 3 wickets in 5 matches, way below the required level as he could not lead England’s bowling attack.

Mitchell Santner (New Zealand)

Santner took 4 wickets in the tournament but also struggled to take the big wickets whenever it was needed, though he did maintain a good economy rate.

Matheesha Pathirana (Sri Lanka)

Pathirana took 3 wickets in 3 matches and failed to replicate his IPL success depot to flop when his team needed him the most.

Mitchell Starc (Australia)

Starc took 5 wickets in 5 matches but had a particularly disastrous over against India, going for 29 runs, which really put a lid on his inconsistent form throughout the tournament.

These players contributed well below par to expectations and had an overall effect on the teams’ chances, leaving their fans and expert analysts disappointed with their total contribution in the T20 World Cup 2024.
