IPL is probably the biggest T20 league in the world. Over time we have seen many World-class players have emerged through the IPL. Though BCCI does not allow Indian players to feature in foreign leagues. The IPL has become a foreign players attraction over the years.
Like always, foreign players would be anxiously waiting for the start of this year’s IPL. Players like Pat Cummins have gone for big money in the auction & will be waiting for this year’s season to begin. In the last 12 years of IPL, many seasonal players have featured in the IPL.
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular international players who once featured in the IPL:
1. Andrew Flintoff
The former English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff could not live up to the expectations in the IPL. He featured for Chennai Super Kings in the 2009 season in South Africa where had a terrible outing as he only scored 62 runs and picked just 2 wickets.
Regarded as one of the most expensive buys for Chennai, he got injured midway through the tournament and had to fly back to England. As a result, Flintoff could sustain longer as he soon retired from the game.
