The Indian Premier League (IPL) has set up a great image in the cricket world as many top cricketers get excited to experience this cash-rich tournament. Some international cricket players have also admitted that the IPL has massively helped in the growth of their cricket career.
However, while the tournament has created tough and challenging competitions with the time progress, the top overseas cricketers also struggle to earn chances in the IPL.
Here we are talking about the top five international cricketers who will unlikely experience IPL in their career.
England Test captain Joe Root, who is known as one of the top-class batsmen in present international cricket, is also a very good limited-overs batsman.
While Root is currently not a regular T20I player, the right-handed batsman has scored 893 runs in 32 T20Is (average 35.72; strike-rate 126.30), including five fifties. In T20 career, Root has scored 1619 runs in 72 matches (average 30.54; strike-rate 125.69), including nine half-centuries. However, his T20 performances in the last two years were not so impressive.
Root entered the IPL auction for the first time in 2018 but he was unsold at the end. He was even disappointed to miss out that tournament. But while the 29-year-old Root is now not much seriously involving in the T20I cricket, it is hard to expect him the in the future IPL.
