India vs Australia: IPL 2020 Flops for Australia are becoming winners, IPL trumps for India are turning big flops

India vs Australia – IPL Flops have become winners for Australia India’s poor form in ODIs continued on Sunday when it lost its second consecutive match to Australia in Sydney. With it Kolhi’s team also lost the three-match series. To sum up the two games, it would be wise to say that IPL does not guarantee a good performance in a 50-over format.
 
To put that in perspective, India’s IPL star players who had a great outing in UAE during the recently concluded league, has struggled to replicate it Down Under. Australia, however, had a different story altogether. Players who were termed a big IPL 2020 flops, have after donning the yellow jersey been on red-hot form.
 
Ind vs Aus: Indian team’s IPL star who failed against Australia
 
The list is led by none other than the struggling Jasprit Bumrah. The fast-bowler has not been at his best in ODIs since the 2019 world cup. He made his return to the 50-over format in 2020 in home series against Australia in January. Since then, he has managed to chip just three wickets and has been one of the costliest Indian bowlers.

Jasprit Bumrah
27 wickets in 60 overs

Yuzvendra Chahal
21 wickets in 60 overs
1 wicket for 160 runs in 19 overs
Shreyas Iyer
519 runs in 17 matches
40 runs in 2 matches
 
In the two games he has played in Sydney, Bumrah has chipped one wicket in each game but at the cost of conceding 152 runs. To further add to the woes, he has not shown the same consistency in the powerplay and death overs.
 
His IPL performance, however, has been completely contrary. He was second-highest wicket-taker with 27 wickets.
 
Yuzvendra Chahal shares a similar storyline. The leading bowler in Royal Challenger Bangalore’s outfit, chipping 21 wickets, he has faded away in the blue jersey. He has managed to get just one wicket and has been the most expensive bowler for India.
 
Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, has not been very impressive with the bat. The fourth-highest run-getter in IPL with 519, his struggle with bouncers continue in Australia.
 
However, there have been exceptions like Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya.
 
India vs Australia : Australia’s IPL flops who have become the biggest difference between the two sides
 
Australia have had two near-perfect games, thanks to splendid batting display by Aaron Finch, Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell.
 
Finch has led his team from the front in both the games. He has managed to build the necessary platform to let batsman after him play freely. Interestingly, RCB had benched him due to his off-form in the IPL. His total in 12 games was 268, while in the Australian jersey he has scored 174 in just two games.

Aaron Finch
268 runs in 12 matches
174 runs in 2 matches
Steve Smith
311 runs in 14 matches
209 runs in 2 matches / 2 Centuries
Glenn Maxwell
108 runs in 13 matches
108 runs in 2 matches @ 225 Strikes rate / 108 Batting Av
 
His bright form has also inspired Steve Smith, the man of the series without any doubt. Two hundreds in two games in 62 balls each, Smith has been India’s biggest threat. The former Australian skipper had struggled to hit the right chord in IPL for Rajasthan Royals (RR) due to instability in the batting line-up. But with Australia, the story has been different. 
 
Put Maxi in the mix. Termed a IPL’s million-dollar flop, his end-over innings in both the games, is the biggest reason for Australia posting 370+ targets in both games.
 
India will certainly have to find a solution for these three, if they want to save a whitewash and with it sixth consecutive ODI defeat.
