We take a look at some great players who won’t feature in the next edition of the IPL.

This was a perfect situation for him to get his eyes in and have ample time to produce an innings suiting his caliber. In the end, he remained unbeaten on 109…Continue

Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 109 combined with 66 off 58 balls from Herchelle Gibbs sank Kolkata who could only manage 155 in reply.
