IPL 2020: 5 biggest disappointments for KXIP in IPL 13

KXIP made a big turnaround from their earlier poor streak to winning 5 out of their last 7 matches.


K Gowtham | BCCI/IPLK Gowtham was bought with much fanfare by the KXIP team for a whopping sum of INR 6.2 cr. This was on the basis of his exploits for the Rajasthan Royals for whom he had opened the bowling on numerous occasions since IPL 2018 and had played some blinder of innings coming lower down the order.

He was expected to performing similar roles for the KXIP team as well.  But he managed to play just two games scoring 42 runs and picking 1 wicket, giving away 84 runs in 8 overs he bowled in the IPL 2020. It was a poor performance from someone who is a genuine big-hitter and a decent spinner to boot for and KXIP was looking at him as a finisher of sorts and someone who could bowl in powerplay overs.
