The last few years have been extremely difficult for the Fab Four of the Indian ODI circuit. The Fab Four of the Indian limited overs team comprises of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan. The four have toiled hard for the success of Indian cricket and their contributions towards the same remains unmatched. The four were the ultimate heroes of the 2011 World Cup win.

However, after that epic World Cup win, the quartet has struggled through phases of poor form and fitness. Yuvraj Singh, undoubtedly India’s greatest match winner in ODI’s was diagnosed with cancer, and ever since his return, he has looked a pale shadow of himself. Sehwag on the other hand last played an ODI against Pakistan in Jan 2013. Zaheer Khan last played an ODI in 2012 against Sri Lanka; while an ODI against West Indies in 2011 was the last one for Harbhajan. 

Once India completed its journey in the 2015 World Cup, skipper Dhoni made it obvious that it would be the same team that would represent India in the upcoming years. Fans had always desired for a farewell series for the Fab Four. The BCCI officials seem to have granted that wish. As per sources in the BCCI, the board is keen to keep the Bangladesh ODI’s as a farewell series for the four champions.

A BCCI official was quoted saying, “What they have done for Team India in the past decade will be hard to match. But as is the case with every sport, time does catch up with you. So we are thinking about giving them an opportunity to go to Bangladesh and sign off on a high…. Some people may term it an emotional decision, but so what? But yes, the idea needs the approval of national selectors.”

The official also said that it would depend on the selectors to decide which player would get the test or the ODI as the farewell game. The official said, “That would depend on the selectors. It could very well be that some of the players are picked just for the Test match while the others are picked for the ODI series.”
