Lucknow Super Giants and Indian all-rounder Deepak Hooda is having one of the worst times during the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023). The pitches at his home ground are true for batting, and the out-of-form Hooda is getting to bat at them, making his case any more substantial.
Against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday, the 28-year-old bagged another failure as he got a ripper from Jason Behrendorff on 5.
After another disappointing outing, he has bagged an unwanted record, which makes his ongoing campaign one of the worst in the IPL history by any batter with 10-plus innings in a season. After 11 innings, Hooda has scored just a mere 69 runs at a forgettable average and strike rate of 6.90 and 89.61, respectively.
Lowest average in an IPL season (10+ innings)
Deepak Hooda (2023) - 6.90
Nicholas Pooran (2021) - 7.73
Deepak Hooda (2016) - 10.29
Eoin Morgan (2021) - 11.08
This season, Hooda has just notched double-figure scores thrice in 11 innings - 17 off 18 vs DC, 11 off 6 vs PBKS & 11 off 11 vs GT, which resulted in him getting for the fixture against Hyderabad before he returned for the ongoing game.
Nevertheless, after losing the all-rounder, LSG went on loss and Prarek Mankad and Quinton de Kock in a quick succession, but Krunal Pandya and Marcus Stoinis have taken the attack to MI at the Ekana Stadium.
