6. Kieron Pollard – Mumbai Indians

The Windies all-rounder was once a huge strength for Mumbai Indians. But now he has become a heavy burden for his team. He is neither bowling for his team anymore nor doing good with the bat in hand.

He was given the responsibility to bat higher up the order. It was done to give him more time to settle his innings and score more. But unfortunately he failed to do even that. In three games he has scored just 33 at an average of 11 and strike rate of 118.

7. Shivam Dubey – Royal Challengers Bangalore

When Shivam was bought by RCB, he had a huge reputation of hitting big shots. In domestic cricket he had twice hit five sixes in an over. But IPL is a totally different ball game and Shivam learnt it the hard way.

In 3 games so far, Shivam had scored just 16 runs at a strike rate of 94. He has also bowled just four balls. Even he had the opportunity to bat for a long time against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but he failed to do that too.
