India has produced the greatest cricketing talents for the game but there were some Cricketers who silently moved away from the game and now they are the unknown commodities in the Indian Cricket. It is not due to the failures they had but they were the unlucky ones who didn’t get the chances to reinvent themselves.
The Cricketers who went into shadows after some time:
1. Pragyan Ojha
He is a slow left-arm bowler born and played for Hyderabad. He came into the talk when he performed outstandingly in Indian Premier League in 2008 where he took 11 wickets. This led to his debut in the International arena against Bangladesh in 2008.
He was an efficient player in Indian conditions but he was not being preferred for overseas condition as his performance was not great either. In 2014 he was replaced by Ravindra Jadeja who is a three-dimensional player and also provides stability in the lower batting order to the Indian team.
2. Vinay Kumar
He is one of those cricketers who had limited skill sets and he was merely dependent on his slower balls and accuracy. He was not able to produce the performances which he would have liked to remain in the Indian team. He made his debut in 2010 against Zimbabwe but he didn’t do anything extraordinary.
Although he is a well-disguised player in Indian Premier League and for his team in Karnataka. With Indian pacers doing really well it looks very bleak that he gets another chance in the Indian team. Moreover, in 12th edition of the IPL, he went unsold in the auction and we may not see him again on the bigger stage of the game.
Like this only, there were many cricketers who went into the dark and never came back to showcase their talent. Some of the notable were Wasim Jaffer, Rahul Sharma, Naman Ojha etc.
