Bowling in different formats of cricket is an art. While some bowlers thrive in the T20 format, they find it supremely difficult to perform in the longest format of cricket. Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra, and a few others are prime examples of the aforementioned statement. However, recent times have seen selectors picking teams separately for Tests and ODIs.

While they usually get it right, some of the bowlers in the Test level are unplayable. However, when it comes to performing in limited-overs, these bowlers find it supremely hard. That said, here is a list of 5 world-class bowlers who are not playing ODI cricket for their country at the moment.

In the last month, South Africa has been the subject of a bevy of One-Day matches in the Caribbean. Playing a Tri-Series in the cluster of Islands, they, unfortunately, had to board a plane back home. In their squad, there is a small yet significant void left by pacer Dale Steyn.

At one point of his career, Steyn was arguably the best bowler in the world. However, disaster struck in 2015 when he sustained a groin strain in 2015. It was at this point that Steyn’s international career looked bleak. He made it to the squad for the World T20 in India only to be left out of the squad for two of the four matches. At the moment, it seems as though the ageing Steyn may well find himself warming the benches in the matches to come.
