The TATA IPL 2023 will be full of superstars. Some of the biggest names in world cricket will compete alongside some of the biggest names in domestic cricket in this tournament. It is a place where talent meets opportunity. That being said, there are many players who starred in a single season and have since fallen off the map. Some domestic players were very good but fell down the ranks by the following season. Here is a look at some of these one-season wonders of the IPL: 

Swapnil Asnodkar was a One Season Wonder: 


Swapnil Asnodkar was a key player in the triumph of the Rajasthan Royals in the first season itself. This short-heightened right-handed batter was very explosive. He played for the Royals in IPL 2008. He had understood the concept of the T20 game and attacked the opposition from the word go. Asnodkar and Smith were the opening partnership that helped the Rajasthan Royals win the title. In the following season, Asnodkar was dropped and he quickly shifted down the ranks. He went on to play domestic cricket for Goa. 

Manpreet Gony Played for the Chennai Super Kings in TATA IPL: 


Manpreet Gony was a one-season wonder when he played for the Chennai Super Kings. In the 2008 IPL season, Gony grabbed 17 wickets in 16 games. He bowled at an economy of 7.4 and an average of 27.2. In the remaining 28 games that he played he went on to leak 9.4 runs an over. He went on to play two ODIs for the national team as well. Manpreet played domestic cricket for Punjab. Gony was once again in the reckoning after having a good performance at the Road Safety Series for the India legends. 

Paul Valthaty Played for the Kings XI Punjab in TATA IPL: 


Paul Valthaty is a name that the CSK fans will never forget. The man scored one of the greatest IPL hundreds against one of the greatest bowling line-ups in TATA IPL history. Him being uncapped, adds more value to his achievement. Paul Valthaty played for the Punjab Kings in 2011. He played 14 games in the 2011 season and amassed 463 runs. In the rest of his IPL career, he scored 42 runs in 9 games. He wasn’t given opportunities later on and it wasn’t clear why. But that led to him slipping down. He played Ranji Trophy cricket for the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association. 

Rahul Sharma Played for the Pune Warriors India: 

Rahul Sharma was a tall, lanky spinner with weird action. He played international cricket in the T20 format for India too. He played for the Pune Warriors India in 2011. In the 14 innings of that season, he scalped 16 wickets at an average of 17.1 and an unreal economy of 5.5 runs an over. But in the remaining 30 games that he played, he wasn’t that lethal. Slowly and steadily, he moved down the spiral. The onset of leg spinners like YUzi Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav did him no good either. He is a capped player though.
