The Gentleman’s game-cricket has emerged as a religion in many countries and the fan following for this sport is huge. With the emergence of the sport, the game has become more demanding for the players.

The cricketers always are needed to adapt as per their evolving formats and should always lookout various methods to score runs and take wickets. With a swift-moving world and with the hulky competition, the players are always expected to prove themselves again and again.

It is never an easy task to represent the national side ahead of the population who is desperate to play cricket for their country. Like how difficult it is to represent the national side, it is coequally arduous for the players to sustain in this sport. Here, we will list some of the players who couldn’t survive in this game despite making a decent International start.

Karun Nair, the Indian batter carved his name in the hall of fame by hitting 303* runs in just 381 balls against England in a Test match which was held at Chennai. He became only the second Indian batter after Virender Sehwag to hit 300 runs.

He only took three innings to hit his maiden century which he converted to triple hundred and is the fastest to do so. This Karnataka batter shot to fame overnight after this innings. But soon, he was dropped from the team after giving very few chances.

After his record-breaking score, he played just four innings and didn’t get past a decent score after which he was dropped from the team and got lost in the dark. With an average of 62.33 in Tests, he still hopes for a comeback in the Indian squad. But there will rise a question on this player’s identity and his whereabouts as he lost track after his brilliant knock against the World-class England side.
