The VIVO IPL 2016 ended last Sunday with Sunrisers Hyderabad named the new champions of IPL. Virat Kohli set new records and benchmarks, while other players such as Warner, AB de Villiers, B Kumar too chipped in with some special performances. Some players became stars with their jubilant performances; Mustafizur Rahman, Krunal Pandaya to name a few with their performance has become special.
And then, there were few who were already recognized international superstars but hardly played this season. Lets have a look at some of those superstars who didn’t play in this IPL.
(6/6) MITCHELL JOHNSON
the retired Australian fast bowler only played a few games for his IPL Franchisee KXIP. He was in the playing XI only in the first three games of the tournament, after which ,he hardly played, picking up only three wickets from as much matches. Johnson was not the fierce bowler that he used to be. The batsmen played him with ease and there was nothing attractive about this post-retirement fast bowler in this IPL.
