Young South African international batsman Janneman Malan was expected a lot from by the team’s fans and the team management. However, the right-hand batsman completely failed to display his class in the tournament as he featured in only 3 matches and scored only 23 runs with a highest score of 16 runs. His strike rate was only 62.
West Indies cricket team’s pace bowler Alzarri Joseph is a premium pace bowler who has a lot of quality. His pace is the most exciting factor in his game, but he was a flop for the Joburg Super Kings as he took only 4 wickets from 7 matches that he featured in. His best performance in the tournament is 2 wickets for 30 runs while his economy rate about 8.5.
England international cricketer George Garton is another whom the fans had a lot of expectations from. But the left-arm pacer was completely out of his game as he played only 3 matches and took 1 wicket with a economy rate more than 8.
Australian wicketkeeper batsman Matthew Wade, who has been tremendously good for the Australian cricket team in T20I format, was brought in as a wildcard entry. He played in 4 matches and didn’t really deliver much for the Super Kings. He scored 66 runs in 4 matches and is unlikely to be retained.
