2. Justin Langer:

55322029-Justin Langer
One of the most successful Australian opener, Langer had very contrasting two halves in his career. While the second half witnessed one of the best modern era openers,  his first half in cricket was not a fruitful one. He failed to live up to the expectations repeatedly despite a lot of chances.The legendary opener  played only eight Tests in his first six years in international cricket.

However, his fortune changed after he was promoted to open the innings.He was a number three batsman until 2001 when he was dropped after failing to convert a series of starts during Australia’s 2–1 loss in India. Shortly after he replaced Michael Slater as an opening batsman for the final 2001 Ashes series Test at The Oval where he celebrated his return with a brilliant century. After that match he did not get dropped again and as an opening batsman he averaged 52.38 and scored 14 centuries in 44 matches.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
