IPL is the biggest cricket league in the world right now, with a brand value worth millions. It is the aim of many international players to earn an IPL contract from any of the franchises. However, not every player could live up to the hype in the IPL. Some emerged as heroes for their country, while some have even lost their wickets for zero.
