1. Dominic Sibley (England)
England’s Dominic Sibley played a great 87-run innings against India earlier this year, but then his form deteriorated. He was reprimanded for batting too slowly in the home series against New Zealand. His 60 * (207) innings drew England to a match they could have won. He was then dropped after playing two Tests in the home series against India, where he performed disappointingly.
2. Marcus Harris (Australia)
The year 2021 was a disappointing one for Marcus Harris of Australia. If we look at his performance in the current Ashes series, it is probably the mistake of the Australian team management to keep him in the playing XI.
3. Jack Crowley (England)
England’s right-handed tall batsman Jack Crowley scored just 172 runs in 2021 at an average of 10.8. There was only one Fifty in his name for the whole year. That is why this player got a place in the flop test XI.
4. Ross Taylor (NZ)
New Zealand’s Ross Taylor scored just 213 runs in 10 innings in 2021, at an average of 23.7. With a highest score of 80, he had a lone half-century to his name. There were a lot of expectations from him as a senior player, but he has betrayed his team in the same way.
5. Ajinkya Rahane (India)
In the home series against New Zealand, Team India’s Test batsman Ajinkya Rahane continued his poor form and was dropped from the second Test. He was in the worst form of his career this year, scoring just 451 runs at an average of 21.7. Rahane had to lose the Test co-captain due to poor form, but Rahane has been made the captain in this flop Test XI.
6. Joss Butler (England)
The English wicketkeeper has disappointed a lot in the Test format this year and that is why the English team is facing a series of defeats. Butler’s statistics do not do him justice at all. With a fifty alone, Butler scored 348 runs in 2021 at an average of 24.9.
7. Wayne Mulder (South Africa)
The South African all-rounder flop in 2021. He scored only 93 runs in six innings this year. This time, he averaged a disappointing 15.5 and Mulder’s highest score at this time was 33.
8. Sam Quran (England)
The young England fast bowling all-rounder is seen fighting in 2021. This is why his stats were not good for England and he proved to be a bad flop.
9. Yasir Shah (Pakistan)
Leg-spinner Yasir Shah has disappointed many Pakistani fans this year. An average of 36.6 is never good for a Test bowler, but Yasir has. He has taken only eight wickets in six innings this year.
10. Stuart Broad (England)
2021 Salta is also disappointing for this English fast bowler. In 13 innings this year, he took just twelve wickets at a poor average of 39.5. That’s why Broad also got a place in the flop test XI.
11. Shannon Gabriel (West Indies)
West Indies pacer Shannon Gabriel took just eleven wickets in 2021 with a poor average of 46.8. His economy rate during this period was also 3.34, which is considered very high in terms of Test cricket. That is why he has been included in the flop Test XI.
