The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 auction is just around the corner. All the eight franchises put out of the list of players whom they’ve retained and released a few days earlier. They are quite a few high-profile Indian cricketers who are back on the auction table in a bid to try out their fortunes yet again. However, some of these cricketers might even go unsold during the auction.
Even though they are all great in their own regards, they haven’t tasted much success of late. These cricketers have failed terribly in IPL 2018 and therefore, the franchise owners, who have been extremely smart in the erstwhile auctions, could look to forgo them for the upcoming season. In our article, we take a look at five Indian players, who may not get any bid next time around.
1. Gurkeerat Mann
Gurkeerat Singh Mann was picked by the Kings XI Punjab in 2012. He is known to be a clean hitter of the cricket ball and is capable of finding the gaps easily. However, his inconsistency implied that he had limited opportunities and was in and out of the team. He was also picked in the Indian team in 2016 for the Australian tour but was dropped right after that series.
The Kings XI Punjab franchise decided to part ways with him ahead of IPL 2018. He was picked by the Delhi Daredevils in the auction but didn’t get to feature in a single game for them. He is now back in the auction pool and might not get any bidders for the upcoming season. The 28-year-old is currently taking part in the Ranji Trophy, representing Punjab.
