All-time Best XI of unsold players in IPL history

There have been many such instances in the past, when big players have gone unsold in the IPL auctions, despite the form on their side.

Micheal Hussey features in this squad as the second opener. The swashbuckling opener was instrumental in Chennai Super Kings success in the first decade of the tournament. He played a key role as the opener of the franchise, providing them starts in almost every game, and holding the innings together whenever needed.

However, he had a rather unfortunate end to his career. He was a key player for CSK, but other teams probably had some other thinking. After the franchise got banned in 2015, he had to return to the auction pool next year, where he went unsold. Since then, he didn’t feature in the tournament anymore.

He and the franchise share a great bond due to which he is working as the batting coach of the team. He would want to see the team lifting the trophy yet another time in 2020, this time not as a player but as a coach.
