"Unsold cricketer at #IPLAuction = MLA/MP overlooked for ministry before oath taking ceremony. *embarrassed but putting on a brave face*," Omar wrote on Twitter.

Over 350 players went under the hammer at the auction held today in Bengaluru but some big names remained unsold.

Some of the stars who could not find a franchise included Hashim Amla, Martin Guptill, Aaron Finch and Usman Khwaja.
