Cricket is an indispensable part of India. The competitiveness and grandeur of cricket are unmatchable due to its staggering popularity across the nation. From Test cricket to T20I cricket, the sport always glues Indians to their television sets.
Considering the massive fan-following of the sport in India, there are many young individuals who aim to don the national jersey one day. However, the path of becoming a cricketer in the country is not easy due to the cut-throat competition. There are lakhs of young individuals waiting to don the Indian jersey one day.
Amid the competition of getting into the national side, there are many existing players too who have now become a liability for the Indian side. Due to injuries or inconsistent performances, the limited-overs career of those players has almost faded away. Over the years, there have been many players who dazzled in some matches for India but failed to make it big in the long run. Such players face the exclusion from the side due to the cut-throat competition and world-class level of cricket in the country.
Here are the current five Indian players whose limited-overs career is over:
1. Kedar Jadhav
When Kedar Jadhav burst out to the international stage, he brought along a breath of fresh air in the Indian side with his all-rounder abilities. A decent middle-order batsman and a wicket-taking bowling option– Jadhav had everything to dazzle at the international stage. Moreover, his unorthodox slingy action made him a weapon in India’s armoury.
However, the Maharashtra-born all-rounder is struggling to deliver consistent performances lately. His form has dipped– both with the bat and the ball– and has been out of the Indian side for a while now. Moreover, with Hardik Pandya’s return and Shivam Dube‘s burst to the team, Jadhav’s future with Team India in limited-overs format looks bleak.
The Men in Blue have also discovered Shardul Thakur, who can contribute with vital runs in the death overs. Considering the current scenario, Jadhav’s career in the coloured jersey looks dim and he might not be considered for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
