IPL 2024: These Legendary Players Who Could Never Play IPL, Anderson Also Included! The countdown’s on! IPL season 17 kicks off on March 22nd, with Chennai Super Kings clashing against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the opening match. Cricket fans worldwide are buzzing with excitement to see the biggest names light up the tournament.

But here’s a surprising fact: some legendary players have never been part of the IPL!

Swing King Sits Out:

Believe it or not, the mighty James Anderson, England’s swing bowling king with 41 years under his belt, has never played in the IPL. Despite his 18 wickets in 19 T20 matches, he hasn’t been picked.

Big-Hitting Hendricks on Hold: South Africa’s Reeza Hendricks is a T20 machine, smashing 1702 runs in just 55 matches with a killer strike rate of over 130. Yet, he’s somehow missed out on an IPL contract so far.

Mushi, the Missed Wicketkeeper?

Bangladesh’s star wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is another big name missing from the IPL. He’s been in the auction pool, but no team has picked him up yet. Mystery!

Broad on the Bench? Remember Stuart Broad? Yeah, the English speedster who played in the very first T20 World Cup back in 2007! He was even part of the Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) squad, but never got a chance to play an IPL match.

Vince: The Unsung Hero?

James Vince, another English batsman known for his big-hitting skills, has played in T20 leagues worldwide. But the IPL spotlight has remained elusive for this experienced player.
