5 famous players who have never played in the IPL
In its ten-year history, the IPL has attracted stars from around the globe. Many prominent international stars have played under the banner of an IPL franchise at least once.
Players look up to the IPL not just for the lucrative contracts but also as a platform to earn national call-ups. However, there are some prominent players who have never graced the world's richest cricket league in all these years.
Let us now look at five famous players who have never played in the IPL.
#1 Joe Root
The current English Test captain enrolled for the IPL auction for the very first time this year, but surprisingly found no buyers.
Root plays for Yorkshire in the domestic circuit but despite some stellar showing, has never featured in the cash-rich Indian Premier League. In 25 T20I matches, Root has scored 743 runs at a strike-rate of 128.77, with his highest score being 90.
