Deepak Hooda has been a continuous flop in IPL 2023.
Hooda’s flop show against Gujarat continues.
New Delhi. In IPL 2023, many players are busy capitalizing on the opportunities they got. Some players have surprised everyone with their brightness, while some have been seen to be hit by luck. Lucknow team has one such player who has become a headache for the team. We are talking about Deepak Hooda, who was retained by Lucknow after spending Rs 5.75 crore. Against Gujarat (GT vs LSG), once again this player put Lucknow on the backfoot with his flop show.
Gujarat had given a target of 228 runs to Lucknow on their home ground thanks to the mountain innings of Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha. In retaliation, the openers of Lucknow also made a strong start. But after the fall of Kyle Myers’ wicket, captain Krunal Pandya reposed faith in Deepak Hooda and sent him to bat at number 3. But he returned to the pavilion after scoring 11 runs, his slow batting put the team under more pressure. Due to a wrong decision of the captain, despite scoring 100 runs in 10 overs, the team had to face a crushing defeat by 56 runs.
Did not cross the figure of 20 in 11 matches

Deepak Hooda has performed not only flop but super flop this season. He has managed to score only 64 runs in 11 matches. The highest score with his bat is 17 runs. In the year 2022, he made his place in Team India on the basis of his good performance. But this flop performance at the crucial juncture of the career can close the doors of Team India. Lucknow’s problems have increased after the defeat from Gujarat. KL Rahul is out of the entire season due to injury.
