The T20 fever is all set to take over the entire cricketing fraternity as the 20-20 World Cup is knocking at our doors. The mega event which is just 17 days away will see 16 teams going head-to-head against each other in pursuit of the ultimate glory.
While the tournament will feature several big names of international cricket, there are many superstars of the game who will be missing out from the grand event. On that note, let’s take a look at five such players who are unlucky to miss out from the big event next month.
1. Jonny Bairstow
Bairstow is one of the fiercest strikers of the ball in international cricket. The star batter was in the form of his life this year. He is the highest run-scorer in Test Cricket for the current year. The 33-year-old has carried his form in T20Is as well as he scored 147 runs in three innings at an average of 49 and a strike rate of 141.
However, the star will not be seen at the World Cup as he suffered a “freak” golf accident before the third Test against South Africa.
