IPL 4: Stars We Miss!!!

IPL 4 offers the international cricket lovers a galaxy of Super Stars from almost every cricket playing nation. Players too relish this opportunity as the emerging ones brush shoulders with the Stars. However, we are poorer by the absence of some of the international players who are not there due to non selection (in Auction – Graeme Swann, Chris Gayle), non participation (Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke, etc.), non available (England and to an extent West Indies players) or non eligible (players from Pakistan). The biggest surprise in the auction was the non selection of Chris Gayle, arguably the best T20 opening batsman. Here is a list of some of the stars missing in action

  1. Super Stars
    1. Chris Gayle, WI
    2. Abdul Razzaq, PAK
    3. Misbah Ul Haq, PAK
    4. Younis Khan, PAK
    5. Shahid Afridi, PAK
    6. Shoaib Akthar, PAK
    7. Ricky Ponting, AUS
  2. Stars

    2. Michael Clarke, AUS
    3. Hashim Amla, SA
    4. Graeme Smith, SA
    5. Shivanarayan Chanderpaul, WI
    6. Ramnesh Sarwan, WI
  3. Emerging Stars
