Some of the most entertaining players will miss out this edition of the Champions League as their teams have not qualified or they are not in the squad. A look at the unlucky bunch.
Ricky Ponting was not picked in Mumbai Indians' squad for the CLT20 and his presence in the field shall be sorely missed.
Royal Challengers Bangalore could not make it so the big hitting Chris Gayle misses out on a chance to showcase his talents.
Aaron Finch's explosive batting is a treat to watch but as Pune Warriors India did not qualify he won't get the opportunity this season.
Jacques Kallis has proven to be an effective T20 player but Kolkata Knight Riders not making it means that he has to miss out on playing on a bigger stage.
Brett Lee was part of the New South Wales team that won the inaugural edition in 2009. But sadly he does not make the cut as Kolkata didn't make it.
Virender Sehwag's Delhi Daredevils failed to qualify meaning that this dashing batsman won't get to set the stage on fire.
David Warner like Sehwag must pay the price for Delhi missing out and the crowds shall miss his big hits over the boundary.
Lasith Malinga will miss out as he wants to be at home for the birth of his child. He shall be sorely missed by Mumbai Indians who relied on him for the early wickets.
