IPL is a crucial domestic tournament for Indian players. Players who perform brilliantly in IPL get a chance to play for the national team too. Players like Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Hooda, Umran Malik, and Ruturaj Gaikwad are examples of some players who got a national call after impressive performances in IPL tournaments.
IPL is also a cash-rich T20 franchise league. Due to the lucrative monetary deals associated with Indian Premier League tournaments, every player wants to be part of it. Players also always make them available for the IPL tournaments, so that franchisees can sign them. However, there are a few Indian players who are always available for IPL but unavailable for international cricket due to some reasons. Here we take a look at 3 such players.
3 Indian Players Who Are Always Available To Play IPL But Become Unavailable For International Cricket
1. Kuldeep Yadav
Kuldeep Yadav is the first player on this list. The left-arm pacer was once a top spin bowler for India. However, he missed many games due to injury and other players managed to grab his place in the team. Kuldeep Yadav showed a good performance in the Indian Premier League 2022 this year, finishing as the 5th top wicket-taker with 21 wickets.
He also played a few games for the national team later. However, due to injury, he again missed chances to perform for India. In the ongoing T20I series against South Africa too, Kuldeep Yadav was part of the squad but was later ruled out due to injury.
Injuries have always halted the left-arm spinner to be a regular part of the national team. However, he has been part of all few last seasons of IPL since 2016 except for the 2021 edition.
