It is difficult to stay on top of the highest level, no matter which era of cricketers we are talking about. It takes years of hardwork, sweat and determination to get there and some cricketers in the past have been accused of misusing their positions at the top. While it is understandable why they’re so possessive of their power, it’s never acceptable to keep a player ahead of the team.
These are the cricketers who have earned the “Selfish” and “Arrogant” tags during their playing days. Incidentally, most of these cricketers are some all-time greats of the game and ones who have been in major power for a long time. Some of them did set a wrong example, but a lot of them got hammered although the intention was not to be selfish.
Here is a list of cricketers who have been termed selfish for a number of reasons. All of these names have been termed selfish for their personal acts or for some of their antics on the field, which didn’t go down well with fans.
1. Sachin Tendulkar
The demigod of masses, the cult legend of Indian cricket, Sachin Tendulkar has achieved everything possible during his career as a cricketer. The highest International run-scorer of all time has his own legendary moments on the field, but there were many other instances which hampered his status big. All of it was forgotten with his retirement, but some scars still remain out there.
Many accused him of prolonging his career for getting to the elusive 100th hundred mark and even during the game against Bangladesh where he eventually got it, his strike-rate was considerably below par. India ended up losing that match in the Asia Cup, one of the few times they encountered a defeat against the Tigers.
