The last decade or so has seen the rise of domestic T20 leagues all over the world. But none has been able to amass the popularity and success that of the Indian Premier League.
The performance in the IPL is slowly becoming a sort of a benchmark to judge a player. However, there have been a few players, who have done well in the IPL but have struggled in other domestic T20 leagues.
In this article, we will take a look at the five players who did well in the Indian Premier League but have failed in other leagues so far.
Brendon McCullum in the Pakistan Super League
Brendon McCullum has played in several T20 leagues over the world. He slammed a Century in the first match of the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League. Since then, McCullum played in over 100 IPL matches, scoring 2880 runs, including two centuries.
The Kiwi batsman, however, does not have a great record in the Pakistan Super League. McCullum represented the Lahore Qalandars in the PSL and has amassed only 311 runs in 18 matches, averaging around 20.
Andre Russell in the Pakistan Super League
Andre Russell is probably one of the best all-rounders in the shortest format of the game. He has played several match-winning knocks in the Indian Premier League. Russell has over 1600 runs and 68 wickets in the league.
The West Indies all-rounder has had a poor run in the Pakistan Super League. He has played for Islamabad United, Multan Sultans, and Quetta Gladiators. Rusell has scored 173 runs in 19 matches and has bagged 21 wickets so far in the league.
Chris Lynn in the Caribbean Premier League
Chris Lynn is the leading run-scorer in the Big Bash League. He has played over 40 matches in the Indian Premier League, scoring 1329 runs, including ten fifties. However, Lynn hasn’t had much success in the Caribbean Premier League.
Over the years, Chris Lynn has represented the Jamaica Tallawahs, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Trinbago Knight Riders, and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. He has scored 880 runs in 40 matches in the Caribbean Premier League, averaging just over 25.
Dwayne Bravo in the Pakistan Super League
In the Pakistan Super League, Bravo has only amassed 134 runs in 14 matches and has bagged 14 wickets. He has played for the Lahore Qalandars, Peshawar Zalmi, and the Quetta Gladiators.
David Warner in the Caribbean Premier League
David Warner is one of the most prolific batsmen in the history of T20 cricket. In the Indian Premier League, he scored 5447 runs averaging 42.22, including 4 centuries. He led the Sunrisers Hyderabad to the 2016 Indian Premier League championship win.
However, David Warner does not have a great record in the Caribbean Premier League. He has played for the Saint Lucia Kings and has scored 220 runs in nine matches at an average of 31 and a strike rate of 111.67.
