The Indian T20 League (ITL) is entering into a new stage this year. With two new teams entering into the tournament, the BCCI has introduced the concept of mega auction once again. Before this year, ITL has witnessed mega auctions on quite a few occasions such as 2011, 2016, and 2018. A total of 590 players have been shortlisted to take part in the auction. However, their might be few players who might be unsold due to reasons such as lack of form, being out of their prime etc.

Here is the list of players who might go unsold in the mega auction

1- Kedar Jadhav

At the age of 36, it looks impossible for Jadhav to be picked considering teams are looking to build a team for a long-run. Readers might suggest that age is just a number, but in Jadhav’s case, things are different. With his increasing age, his performances have also dropped. In 2017 with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the right-hander amassed 267 runs in 13 games at a healthy strike-rate of 143.54. Since then, his strike-rate and run flow has dropped significantly. He has managed only 303 runs in 29 games at a meagre strike-rate of 101.15.

2. Imran Tahir 

The former South Africa leggie is still a match-winning performer in the shortest format. However, at the age of 42, teams might look into younger leg spinners. His ageing body can be a liability on the field as h might have to be hidden on the field. Last year, he didn’t a single game in the ITL for Chennai. Although, he is still weaving his magic in the ongoing PSL for Multan Sultans, he might go unsold this year.
