IPL: Shine in one or two seasons, then lose these six cricketers

Launched in 2008, the Indian Premier League has provided a platform for many talented cricketers to showcase their talents to the world. 
The league changed the lives of many cricketers and brought them to the international stage. While there were some cricketers who shone for a while but then disappeared. Such players who have performed well in one or two seasons and garnered much applause are not even a part of IPL today. We are telling you about some such players here.

Paul Valthaty

After scoring a tumultuous match-winning century in a match against Chennai Super Kings in 2011, Paul Valthaty went on to become a key player in Kigs XI Punjab and was the talk of the town. The next season, in 2012, KXIP relied heavily on him, but he did not do well and was not bought by any team for the next season.

Swapnil Asnodkar

The young Goa wicketkeeper-batsman made a splash in the first season of the IPL. He drew everyone's attention to himself by hitting a powerful shot despite his small height. This season he scored 311 runs from Rajasthan Royals at an average of about 35 and played a key role in making the team champions. However, his performance in the 2009 season was not so good and he has never been seen playing in the IPL again since he was dropped from the team in the middle.

Manvinder Singh Bisla

The one-time base batsman of the Kolkata Knight Riders is not part of any IPL team today. Bisla made KKR the champion in the IPL 2012 final with a banging innings of 89 runs and also won the Man of the Match award. However, he was unable to retain his form in later seasons. He joined the RCB team in 2015 but did not get a chance to play a single match here. That being said, here he had a feud with Dravid after which he never got a chance in the team.

Rahul Sharma

Punjab's Mystery Bowler Rahul Sharma sparked controversy with his performance for the Pune Warriors in 2011 and also caught the attention of the fast Indian selectors with 16 wickets in 14 matches. He also played 4 ODIs and 2 T20s for India. However, the latter was dropped from both the Indian team and the IPL due to poor performance.

Doug Bollinger

The Australian fast bowler was part of Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings from 2010 to 2012. Bollinger, known for his tight bowling and periodic wicket-taking, was impressive and played a key role in winning two CSK titles but was abruptly dropped. Why it was overlooked despite the good record remains a question for all.

Saurabh Tiwari

In the 2010 IPL season, Saurabh Tiwary was very popular due to his batting and Dhoni-like hairstyle. His performance this year was tremendous and based on that he also made a place in the Indian team. However, he also kept going inside and out of the team to keep his form intact. He last appeared in the IPL in 2017.
