While remaining unsold means end of game for the cricketers who were looking to shine in the Indian Premier League, there have been injury & other reasons that have brought withdrawals from players who are selected, though this number is not many. We expect the fortune to change for those who didn’t find the favor of selectors, and with the IPL scheduled to extend to more teams in upcoming editions, there might be more players coming to the league fold.
