The biggest upset was given by Jos Buttler who came with the reputation of being destructive to the bowlers and hoped to defend the title.

Jos Buttler’s average in this tournament was less than 12. Swipe down the page and read more details.
The next player who disappointed in ICC World Cup 2023, is South Africa’s skipper Temba Bavuma whose contribution to the team’s success was diminutive. Although Temba Bavuma led the side very well he made the right bowling changes and placed on perfect field during the matches. But he failed with his bat due to which the team suffered a couple of times including in the Semi-Final. The next star player who disappointed in World Cup 2023 is Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam. Babar Azam could only score 340 runs with an average of 40 in 9 innings. In addition, Babar Azam was also not at making decisions to make the right bowling changes.
Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh’s skipper also let down the team with poor batting performance. His team finished at the sixth point in the World Cup. In 2019, Shakib Al Hasan scored over 500 runs and also contributed with the ball but this time he was totally out of form. England’s speedster Mark Wood who could be lethal to batsmen in this World Cup, can only crack 6 wickets in 7 matches. He failed miserably and became the reason for mighty England’s poor show. Mark Wood was supposed to lead the pack attack of England in the absence of Jofra Archer. Meanwhile, Buttler and Wood’s failure with bat and ball contributed to the England team’s failure. Stay tuned.
