10. Rishi Dhawan
Many were surprised by Rishi Dhawan’s inclusion in the Indian team in 2016. However, the all-rounder could play just three international games.
9. KL Rahul
Although Rahul is a cornerstone of the Indian team now, he has endured bad form on several occasions. However, the dasher never remained out of the national team for long.
8. Ravindra Jadeja
Hardik Pandya’s injury in the 2018 Asia Cup meant Jadeja was called back to the limited-overs team after a year-long halt. The southpaw used the opportunity and cemented his place.
7. Piyush Chawla
Despite not enjoying a sensational international career, leg-spinner Piyush Chawla is a two-time World Cup winner.
6. S Sreesanth
Sreesanth was indeed a talented bowler. However, he played over 50 ODIs at an economy rate of over 6. Hence, one can call him lucky.
5. Varun Aaron
Owing to his ability to set the speed gun on fire, the right-arm speedster got many chances despite regular failures.
4. Stuart Binny
On the virtue of being a fast-bowling all-rounder, Binny got to play several games in Team India colours.
3. Vijay Shankar
Despite Ambati Rayudu doing well at number four, the selectors picked Vijay Shankar ahead of him in India’s 2019 World Cup squad.
2. Shivam Dube
Dube is also one of many fast-bowling all-rounders tried by Team India in recent years. However, his place in the national team never seemed justified.
1. Kedar Jadhav
When Jadhav was active in international cricket, India didn’t have any player in the top 6 who could potentially act as a sixth bowler. This factor certainly prolonged Jadhav’s career.
