5. Daniel Sams
Daniel Sams has been roped by the Delhi Capitals for the thirteenth season of the IPL. He was brought in as the third crimper for Ricky Ponting’s team as Rabada and Anrich led the bowling attack. For Sams, it was the biggest scene because he had never faced something big like IPL. Already playing for a strong team, there was added pressure on him to make a name for himself.
Well it looks like the pressure got the better of him because he had a bad first season. He was included in the lineup for just three matches. In those three matches, he had a low save rate of 9.5 and was unable to take a wicket. It never helped her team as they struggled through the second half of the tournament. And, the absence of the third crimper meant that the Delhi capitals struggled to suffocate the Mumbai Indians in the final.
However, Sams has had a brilliant BBL season. In his recent stint with Sydney Thunder, Sams won 11 wickets in 9 games with an 8.51 save rate. Speaking of his average, he had an average of 23.70 in the Big Bash League. For a player who has had a terrible IPL season, it’s a much better performance. Therefore, Sams is on this list of 5 IPL 2020 flops that did well in BBL 2020-21.
