India's star player, Meghna Singh, who is a regular in India's ODI setup, was out of favour in the WPL auction. Not a single franchise, out of five, seemed interested to buy her.

In another WPL auction snub which shocked everyone was South Africa's star opener Laura Wolvaardt.The 23-year-old batter is known for her explosive batting but her unidimensional gameplay failed to garner any attention in WPL auction.

New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates failed to attract any bids at the WPL auction despite being a regular member for White Ferns. She is currently ranked seventh in the ICC T20I rankings.

Chennai-rooted star Australian leg spinner, Alana King was another big name who remained unsold in the WPL auction. She shone with her tremendous performances in the recently concluded bilateral series against India.

One of the most successful all-rounders of current times, Katherine Brunt will sit out of the WPL 2023 as she too found herself ignored in the WPL auction. Her patchy form could be one of the reasons

It was shocking to see India's most economical spinners Ekta Bisht snubbed inthe WPL auction. She has picked 53 wickets in 42 T20Is for India at an economy rate of 5.3 runs per over.

South Africa's star pacer Ayabonga Khaka, who has emerged as team's first choice in bowling across format, also found herself out of favour in the WPL auction. Despite the constant improvement in her gameplay, she failed to attract bidders.

New Zealand's tearaway pacer Lea Tahuhu, who is also the fastest bowler in women's cricket, was snubbed in the inaugural WPL auction. She has featured in 72 T20Is for New Zealand and has snared 67 wickets.
