The 2018 IPL is underway and all the teams have played at least two matches in the tournament.

By now, the teams would have got an idea about what they have, what they lack and how their playing XI should look like.

Each team will also have a strong set of names as a back-up for their first-team players and these players might get a chance to take the field down the line.

But, there are a few players in each team who might not even get to play a single match in the ongoing IPL.

Let us take a look at a player from each team who won't be playing a single match in the 2018 IPL.

#1 Chennai Super Kings - Faf Du Plessis

Chennai Super Kings have started the 2018 IPL on a great note as they won their first two matches in a thrilling manner.

Just two games into the season, the MS Dhoni-led side looked settled and knowing the man himself, it is unlikely that he will make changes to his playing XI.

The likes of Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, Imran Tahir and Sam Billings have sealed their places in the playing XI.


With David Willey coming in, someone has to make way for the all-rounder as Willey is the kind of player Dhoni loves to have in his team.

In all likelihood, Faf du Plessis, who was retained by Chennai Super Kings using the RTM card, might not even get to play a single game for the former champions.
